    I'm a MGS fan, I have played and beat every game except Twin Snakes & Peace Walker. I loved MGS V Ground Zeroes :noah:

    I must have ran it back at least 10 times in 2 days so naturally I'm fiending for The Phantom Pain :dame:
    The hospital opening is :whoo:and :ohlawd: but I'm very concerned about what I'm playing right now.

    - WTF is this mission sh*t? What happened to the game story structure with the 2hr cut scenes? The ranking should come at the end of the game :birdman:
    - I'm not feeling this mother base and fulton parachute sh*t :camby:He shouldn't be parachuting the opps. The items and inventory should be what you find and keep on you. It makes you want to explore every section of the game.

    - I'm not feeling this horse sh*t :camby: My guy Snake is a legendary stealth soldier. Let him sneak into the next location.

    - The game is feeling more like an open world than linear :snoop:

    - The story so far is taking place in the middle east and it feels so dull. I miss the jungles of South America and the freezing winter in Eastern Europe :snoop:



    - Where's the evasion and alert clock?



    How much longer do i have to be in the middle east? it's visually unpleasing. I hope it turns around but I'm disappointed so far :to:

    SNAKEEEEEEEEEEEEE :damn::damn::damn:

    I feel the OP.. It was tough to get into the game because of the open world structure. Still haven't really played it much to this very day

    OP, word of advice: get off the train now cause you’re gonna get big mad at the mid point.

    Hell this gif describes MGSV perfectly.

    Mechanically it’s the best stealth game and computer AI ever invented.

    But history wise...yep

    Bought it the day it came out. Played the first 20 minutes or so then quit the game.

    Haven't got back to it since. I feel ashamed.
