Why We're Going to Niss the Old Metal Gear
Last week the art book for Metal Gear Solid 5 was released. It revealed a compilation of really great work and some things that didn't make the game. There were even concepts for a different ending.
There were some alternative designs on D-Dog and D-horse, taking you on a nostalgia trip. It was a reminder of how much a great game it was to me and many others who played it. It even shows off a character who was supposedly killed off in the past game, Chico, but he was much older and looked much more sinister suggesting that he could have been a boss fight.
But as many of us know a lot went on behind the closed doors and the game was forced to end much sooner than we all expected. For some reason, developers decided to put much more attention in mobile gaming and slot machines. In Japan, they made a slot machine showing off completely remastered MGS3 scenes that looked jaw dropping. It just was a depressing reminder of what this company decided to do.
After the images of the remastered scenes made it to the internet many people pleaded for them to at least make a remastered game like they did in the past for MGS 2, 3, and the PSP versions. It wouldn't be too far fetched for them to do so since remastered versions have proven to sell very well. But the odds of that happening are very slim.
It's very sad to see a well respected company to do this to fans because it's arguably one of the best game franchises made, especially for fans like me who grew up with the series and have played the old NES version.
We could only hope for the best for this company and their upcoming project Metal Gear Survive.
