Every system has a game that makes you want to buy that system, even if it’s just for one game. For me Nintendo has Samus, Xbox has Master Chief, and PlayStation has Solid Snake. I have played every Metriod game to date, every Halo to date, and I plan on playing every Metal Gear Solid to date. Metal Gear Solid 4 looks amazing, you can’t deny that. But is $600 worth one game? Of course not and unless I win the lottery, I will not be getting a PS3 anytime soon. Don’t get it twisted though, I will own a PlayStation 3 one sweet day. I don’t care if the system has been out for 10 years and PlayStation 5 is already out, I will own a PS3 just so I can play this game.
A lot of gamers hate how MGS is so story driven and at times you feel like you are watching a movie rather than playing a game. I love that about this game, I love to be drawn into the experience Hideo Kojima has provided for me. I’m a huge fan of the series and one day I will be able to experience MGS4 first hand. Until then, I’ll have to watch trailers and other people play the game. Check out the beauty that is Metal Gear Solid 4.
