I just hope whatever this new Kojima game is, it makes some sort of sense in terms of storytelling. I'd be more hype over a new project from Sakaguchi or Mikami, but at least it's another well known Japanese name developing a project for Xbox, that'll help pursuade other Japanese devs to maybe consider the platform. Like back in the 360 era.

I have only played MGS4 and I didn’t even finish it. I bought Death Stranding from PSN a couple weeks ago for $20. Hope to start that up this week.

I suspect PS fans will say he was never any good anyway so no loss.
If you never played MGS 1-3 I can see not really loving 4 since it's kind of the final game in that series. These are the only Kojima games I've played, but I loved every single one of them, especially 3. Never played 5, but I'm sure it's a great game.

5 would also be a better starting point for someone who has never played any since it has minimal story. 4 is Metal Gear craziness turned up to 11 so you definitely need to already love that.

I hope it makes no sense. Hope it's the biggest train wreck of WTF storytelling of all time. Something only possible with Kojima unchained. The freeway pile-up of videogames. A dump truck full of s***....on fire...speeding down the street. Something only possible in our dreams...the ones where we grow our gardens by pissing on dirt. A coherent Kojima is the non alcoholic beer and decaf coffee of gaming. What's the point?

To me a Kojima game is like an overly dramatic IG model/ self proclaimed actress at a drama. Pretty to look at on screen but her performance is a cringe fest.

Nah, he’s Ninja, started with an ms platform and then bounced around a bit, only less dancing but plenty of dabbing

Kojima is his own thing. His games are visually interesting and he pushes envelopes as well. I enjoy the details. I love how out-of-the-box he is, but he is definitely existing in his own world when it comes to making stuff make sense, lol.

I still want to try Death Stranding, but won't pay full price knowing I may not like it. I definitely think he is over-rated, but he is so unique that I am glad he is there.

My PS4 is a dust collector now. I am fully in this new gen, so going back to the old machines ain't happening. Doesn't mean I don't play old games, but If it ain't on my Series X, it ain't getting played, lol.
