PSXE Poll Update: Metal Gear Solid 4 Is The Chosen Favorite
Once again, we're a little surprised at the results of our weekly poll, but in retrospect, it may not be such a shock. After all, the most recent installment in any series - particularly if it's appropriately awesome - is foremost in our memories.
But whatever the reason(s), you have chosen your favorite Metal Gear Solid entry: and it's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots by a landslide. Initially, we figured it would come down to MGS4 and the original MGS, but Kojima's latest effort easily captured your hearts...as if that's any shock. It arguably features the best storyline in video game history, the characters are extremely well drawn, and of course, that fluid, more action-oriented gameplay worked beautifully. Many of the purists love to make a strong case for the original or either MGS2 or MGS3 but there are very few fans who will say MGS4 isn't deserving of all the praise it has received. The next poll is up, and we're continuing the trend: perhaps the next obvious step is to ask which Final Fantasy installment is your favorite. No, we're not including every last title in history that has Final Fantasy in the title, but all the significant installments are on the list. We figure this should be a relatively close battle, but we get the distinct feeling that FFVII will grab the win...
So cast your vote now and see which FF is the PSXE's reader's favorite. Afterwards, we'll think about doing polls on the best storylines, best graphics, best characters, etc, etc, etc. There are more than enough subjects to keep our polls going, and stay tuned for the return of the Best of the Best Polls, too.
