    awesome 😀

    though it kinda feels small compared to COD and others. especially being 25 years strong and all

    such a shame though, still i do know the stealth genre is still considered niche in many communities.

    in any case congratulations!!!!!! Kojima!!!

    i hope the 30th anniversary game is the MSX Remakes 😀

      btw a little stupid question….from all the comments on this site your ones are easily memorable because of the spacing between the text… why do you do that? 😀

      • PrinceHeir

        well i do that since it’s much easier to read rather than reading between the lines.

        but yeah, i do notice a lot of people getting irritated in other sites, but i don’t care because it’s become a habit of mine XD

        why thank you! it’s nice to have great people around!!!

      COD doesn’t exist in my world anymore hahahaha
      COD is over rated and infested with 12 year olds

      • Nekkedsnake

        Haha agreed. COD cannot match MGS story wise. You basically just run around shooting stuff. It’s an fps military sim at its core. MGS is more like a series of movies. Kojima himself wanted to he a movie director at first and just transitioned into games which has been working for Him so far!

    Awesome…this series is so epic and I only just started playing more than a year ago; series is approaching 30 years in due time. Can’t wait to get the Legacy Collection and The Phantom Pain. Really don’t want series to end, yet Kojima does. WHY??!!

    • Nyxus

      Kojima actually wants the series to continue, developed by the younger generation of game designers, while he works on different projects.

      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        In that case, would like to see him do more ZoE or a new IP that has the quality of Metal Gear series.

        • BigBossWantsYou

          He didn’t direct or write any of the past ZOE and actually cancelled the development of ZOE3

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            He still helped with them though. Well that sucks
