Metal Gear Solid 2 isn’t as good as MGS 1, by far, but it’s still an incredibly good game. It and Raiden don’t deserve the hate.
I hate the fact that the new metal gear is going on the Xbox. They pretty much change the entire format of the game i think to appeal to Xbox fans, just as they did with the Resident Evil franchise. If a game goes on the Xbox, it seems as though they change the entire gaming experience to more of a hack and slash gamer type thing or shoot em up, without much in depth thought, or story, or details. I hope that the route the MGR is gonna take will be different, if not, I will be sadly disappointed…
Though Metal Gear Solid 1 is overall the better game, a lot of MGS 2’s gameplay is much better, and Raiden doesn’t deserve all the hate he gets.
Raiden from Metal Gear Solid is my favourite video game character and one of my favourite fictional characters.
I wish I was able to admit this more openly on other sites, and not just to my close friends and on tumblr.
