What Do MGS Fans Think Of The Story Choices In MGSV?
We're not sure how the Metal Gear Solid faithful will respond to this piece of news.
Historically, the franchise has delivered some of the best and most memorable plots in video game history. And they've done it through standard linear adventures that tell a complex and intricate story. However, it seems Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will implement plenty of player freedom.
Basically, we will play various missions that will act as different story episodes. But as we can choose to play those missions in any order, the story will naturally adapt to that process. Important choices will have to be made, too, as the player will even have to decide between life and death for key characters. Many long-time fans aren't liking this idea, as it sounds too much like an open-ended RPG of some kind. That's great, but does it fit the spirit of MGS...?
If they do it right, it could. Provided they keep one cohesive main plot line, and that story is fantastic, the result should be dynamic and satisfying.
