Its hard to not spoil yourself when the game is out but what can you do? I didn't spoil myself yet if your curious.

Maybe I should get a credit card and put myself into debt to get the bundle.
ooh kinda sucks for you... Yeah I just got a ps3 cause Wal-Mart had a deal for it where if you buy a 40 gig you get a 100$ gift card for wal mart (so pretty much you save 100$)


Well if you've got 300$ and some one who can give you 100$ give them the gift card but the deal ends this saturday... (I mean today )

But really don't put yourself in debt... There aren't that many great games... to tell you the truth I've got a lot of money to just throw around so that's why I decided to get this.

anyway, I have yet to play this, or ANY MGS game. would i not understand stuff if i just picked this one up and played it?
No, unfortunately you would have to play the others

In fact, what the hell am I saying unfortunately for.....they are all awesome. Just pick them up for PS2 if you have one then you should be up to date and ready for this bad boy.

Seriously, 10/10 is no over exaggeration this game is just pure gold. I was not honestly expecting anything like this before I got it. Then again I never read reviews or anything just so I don't expect too much. But this is quite possibly rivaling the HL series. I would call it the HL series of the console world.

But the sad thing about it is that it will never get the recognition it deserves. This game should be outselling GTA IV with ease, I guess the world isn't as simple as that

not really on the whole you'd have to play the others thing... It really depends on how quick you can catch onto things, my brother played mgs4 and it is the first one he's played and my brother's friend tried it and he couldn't understand a thing and he hasn't played one either.

Instead of giving every game a 10 they should really redo the standard.

Usually every game rated under a 7 is not that good, do we really need 6 subsequent lower levels for games that we know suck? the 10's are seeming too frequent. GS and IGN both gave 10's to MGS4 and GTAIV, but GS's last 10 came in 2001 (Soul Calibur for DC) and now all of a sudden there's two perfect games? I beg to differ. Then again, abstracting a game into a number is already not such a great practice to begin with.

Maybe I'm being a little nitpicky but I think some of these games are getting too much high praise like that, GTAIV was amazing, and an excellent technical achievement, but it's far from perfect. There's less in it in some respects than older GTA's, and it has some technical issues. MGS4 was also amazing (I sat and took turns on it with a friend for 6 hours straight) and was thoroughly impressed, but the control (a pretty important part of any game) felt sloppy and just not as well suited to the PS3 as it would have on the PC.

No game is perfect, IGN even stated that in their review of GTA IV. They Said the reason they give it a 10 is for it's technical achievements, innovation and raising the bar much higher for a particular style of gameplay, not because the game is without flaws. IGN's last 10 was also the original Soul Calibur, and before that it was Ocarina of Time, 4 10s in that many years? I'd say they're not just handing out 10s. It just so happens that we got two very, VERY incredible games this year but also very different games.

here is what was wrong with GTA4's reviews - the game was highly flawed technically with loads and loads of glitches and several good heavy slow downs.

MGS4 has maybe several slowdowns when things get extreme, but keeps a good FPS rate for the majority of the game that certainly is on par with Crysis level shaders, textures, and lighting. Meanwhile GTA4 didn't even look that great, but had large environment.

Away from the technicall aspect, the game combines several genres and can be played by people who like either FPS, over the shoulder, or the whole sneaking thing. Not to mention - IT ACTUALLY WORKS OUT! XD

It also obviously has the amazing story and plot that truly seems as if you're in a movie. My father mistakened it twice for a movie when he passed by, even though I told him the first time that it was a game.

you're putting words in my mouth

I don't know what everyones grief is with the whole (10/10) thing, I mean from a personal point of view I can understand due tot he fact that everyone is entitled to their opinion.

but like stated, 7 - 10 is pretty much the only rates worth talking about. And why would you drop the game to a 9 due to minor issue. 1 point is a pretty major drop when you are only including 4 score points. I think it is being a it over critical.

10/10 should not be for a perfect game, you will never get one and you certainly would never see a 10/10 if that is the case. 10/10 should be reserved for those games that really set president and appeal to the masses. I think both GTA IV and MGS 4 achieved that. I have thoroughly enjoyed both games and thought both of them have accomplished things that I have never expected. All personal opinion of course.
