But yeah it is its self enclosed kind of stealth. Games like Thief appeal to a different kind of stealth.

>> No.4629783

Pseudo 2.5d pacman is not stealth. Running away is not stealth. Shitty controls are not stealth. Mapping 12 different actions to 4 buttons is not stealth.

Its a shitty game that is an enjoyable experimental bundle pack of gimmicks. It was a chore to play back then and it's a chore to play now.

It was one of the best TECHNOLOGY games of its day but Thief was clearly the king of stealth games.
Played on the proper settings, if you fucked up on Thief you would be slaughtered by guards in seconds, unlike MGS where you can rely on combat skills to get you out of fuckups.

>> No.4630563

You may prefer the original due to nostalgic reasons (inclding prefering the original voice acting), but TS is objectively the better game, the mgs2 gameplay gives it more to do, you can fuck around with guards in more ways than you can on the original. I don't get why someone who is a fan of the game wouldn't want this. "hardcore" fanboys complain about MGS2 gameplay breaking the game, as if you haven't already played through the game countless times. Also first person camera on TS is optional, you can still play it as the original.
All in all a great remake of the game with QoL improvements. It's not an amazing game like REmake, but it's still up there as far as remakes go. I do think it's better than the original.

I loved MGS 1, but I liked the VR Missions more. A lot of the creative techniques the game teaches you in VR aren't required or even applicable in the main game due to its on the rails linearity. MGS1 would have really benifited from some kind of Zelda Master Quest style redesign.

I'm not even saying anything bad about the original, I just think the remake improved on it.

>> No.4630681

But TS isn't "objectively better" when it objectively breaks the balance with the MGS2 mechanics due to the lack of redesign for the levels and bosses. Also I have to question one's sanity if they prefer TS's cutscenes to the original.

>> No.4630690

I already explained that point. To someone who has already played through the original game once, who cares about balance? You know how to play the game already, it's good to have more options, guards also have more actions and better AI.
And again, the first person camera is optional.
I don't think they're particularly great in either game, they look better on TS, sure, but both versions have very corny cutscenes. I get that TS is more "over the top", but honestly the original isn't some deep kinema either, it's still silly kojima doing his hollywood impersonations, often quite tongue-in-cheek.
However, as I said, it's OK to prefer the original due to these reasons. If you prefer the original's music better, or the voice acting, or cutscenes, that's understandable. Now, the core gameplay is better on TS, objectively.

>> No.4630716

Oh well, we'll have to agree to disagree. I don't dislike TS. In fact, I like the fan theories attributed to it (such as it being Otacon's retelling of the story), so both versions should be played to any potential series newcomers who may be reading this.

This makes me think Hideo Kojima with his "solid" game series is the perfect madman to show us how 3D was a mistake in videogames and how it should never have been used outside some niche experimental genres... a fine example of how gamers have been trolled and literally been eating shit for decades while praising turd after turd because they were told that was the right thing to do...

This world could have known a golden age of videogames beyond imagination if A) 2D would have continued its natural evolution and B) real developers would have made games like always instead of corporative lunatics

TLDR the 2 original metal gear games are the only good ones after all this time.

Snake's Revenge has the best music, and it's arguably better than the first Metal Gear game, also it was developed by the Castlevania team.

But I had way more fun playing Metal Gear 2.
My perspective is a bit unusual, I played the whole series in chronological order last year. After playing MG2, MGS1 didn't have enough new game mechanics to really impress me on that front. I think there was wall leaning and a scope weapon, everything else was from MG2.
Obviously its far beyond the time to be impressed by the 3D, so I mostly enjoyed MGS1 for its story, although MG2 had a good story as well.
I don't like the anti-kojima contrarian shit that seems to float around this site now. These games are gold man

doors looked all the same in mg2, whereas in mgs you can see which card is needed. Voice acting both in cutscenes and as a game mechanic in alerted guards adds a lot to the game and gives mgs more attitude. Shadow Moses was also more impressive in visuals with its cold aesthetics. Boss battles were more fun as well, just compare fox and metal gear fights.

Story in video games is cancer though. If you want story just read a book. Metal Gear Solid is a shitty game because it was the beginning of the end for the medium, too many games tried to tell stories after it was released.

I finished the game and it just sucks, no game should have more cutscenes than gameplay.

MGS's main focus is the boss battles, and if you know how to play the game its essentially just a boss rush.
This is why V was trash. Insanely bloated with only 2 or 3 bosses the whole game.

It's still great because it was one of the new generation 3rd person games without all the cinematic AAA nonsense which plague gaming today. Also the difficulty level was not "press x to win" level. Game still resembles vidya of the 1990s but stands between the next generation emergent gameplay.

Short segments yes but the game suffers artificial longevity with those parts.

Lolno. As a stealth game, MGS isn't even the best in the metal gear series, let alone beyond it.

The best stealth game is still Thief.

I think MGS is better than Thief as an over all product, but the stealth game aspect of Metal Gear is quite primitive next to Thief.

gameplay or story?

MGSV had the most natural gameplay and the best stealth mechanics when you used it. MGSV suffered from giant open environments and the ability to just "lol fulton me more ammo plz" whenever you got through spraying and praying up an outpost.

MGS3 had great gameplay though, easily the best of the PS2 era MGS games.
