  • That says a lot about Metal Gear Community. It says that…

    We are facebook nerds xDD


    We have the biggest community and memories about the series. Metal Gear has a huge following and Konami is trying to destroy that. What If Kojima developed MGS6… ;(

      Did you say NERD?! 🙂

      • FoxTamerMGO

      The more they’ll try to destroy us, the more they’ll EPIC fail at it. I think they also had a better picture of this little sweet fact this past few days… 😀 And it is not over yet… 😉 They could not better destroy themselves xD. They RANKED F like

    • Gatsu

      Konami may think that they can destroy MG, but they can’t destroy the reputation Kojima has earned and our respect for him :).

    • What if he wanted to release to MG games at once 🙁

    • biggy cross

      it better happen

  • Venom_Sina

    For a minute,I read the first line like:”Facebook has provided an overview of the most-disgusted games of 2015…” and I was like:Oh,they really don’t like MGSV,but the title says another thing…Ah,it says most-discussed.LOL.

          At least we know who were responsible for your big disappointment.
          It is clear now that the poor chapter structure plus filling massively Chapter 1 with all that was yet stable / playable was because of how Konacrap treated Koji-Pro.

          Although (:D), I am literally marveled at the quality and the quantity of what we received considering the that evil and negative atmosphere they did setup for them… Poor Koji-Pro… 🙁

          Dude get a life.

        • XOF

          lol, it’s not the end of the world ….
          there will be amazing games that will come out next year and in future.

    • Tom Brearley-Smith

      A dud!

      Dunno who it is, but nobody should joke with terrorism like that. Even if such trolling could appear funny to some at first glance, I think this is the worse thing we need (Hideo Kojima included) right now.

      • Spectralbuttplug

        9-11 was an inside job.

      • XOF

        Agreed. This is just crossing the line now ….

    • This is exactly the reason why everyone should forget about this Konami vs Kojima bullshit. Doesn’t matter anymore. People should calm down and let Hideo complete his contract without the issues.

      This terrorism “thing” just makes things worse for everyone.

      • XOF

        It was a prank. A terrible one that is not needed especially with the current situation at hand around the world.

    • MichaelPayneV

      This is not cool, not at all, 1 of MG biggest themes is counter-terrorism, so whoever did this, he is not a Fan at all.

      • hunner

        How do you know a mgs fan did it?

        • MichaelPayneV

          Pretty sure i gave points on why this person couldn’t have been an MGS Fan.

  • Spectralbuttplug

    Kojima is love kojima is life.Praise the kojima

    • ObsessedGeorge

      I’m playing Civilization V these days and I have named my religion “Kojimaism”. It has spread to all civilizations on the game.

    • The Omnipotent Snake

      Oh Lord Hideo!

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      wouldn’t be an MGI comments section without an obligatory Stefanie post

  • BurntFM

    I tell you why MGS is popular.

    It’s because the fans are as batshit insane as Kojima himself.

    I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way
