Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
I just beat MGS3 and RE4. Both great, solid games that make you proud to be a gamer. IMO, RE4 deserves all the praise heaped on it and then some; MGS3....not so much.
I'd never realized just how horribly god-awful the camera was in MGS until they took away the radar. I was used to Snake responding like a retarded bull on tranquilizers, but the absence of the radar turned areas into this: Walk two steps, first-person, walk two steps, first-person, head-shot, rinse and repeat. Yikes.
Nevertheless, better than 99% of the games out there in terms of story and production values. Once it can make the controls fun and responsive, MGS will be unstoppable. That final battle was one of the most beautiful (albeit frustrating) fights I'd ever seen. Awesome. I'll be playing it again someday.
And RE4 simply rocks. Only complaint is that it's about 5 hours too long (just didn't know when to end!), otherwise it would've been perfect. Hats off to you, Capcom.
