= EPIC WIN.
It's probably going to be an awesome game....but I can't forgive them for ****ing up one of the greatest characters.
Metal Gear Solid was great. Snake was a true badass and the story was straightforward. Bad guys have huge walking nuclear tank, you defeat the tank. Simple.
Sons of Liberty started out good but you ended up spending most of the time as f'ing Raiden, and by the time you reached the end the story started sucking pretty hard. The Patriots? Puh-lease.
Snake Eater was at least something of a return to MGS, and even though you weren't technically Snake, it was pretty close.
With the latest one, you're some scraggly-ass old man version of Snake. WTF? Does he get up three times a night to piss?
So between the four games you're the badass Snake only about 25% of the time. Maybe I'm grasping at straws, but I think they blew it with this series.
