Things HORRIBLY Wrong with Metal Gear Solid 4

July 27th, 2008  |  Published in Video Games  |  29 Comments

Metal Gear Solid 4 is easily in my top5 favorite games of all time. That being said I still found that the game had a lot of WEIRD and horribly wrong moments.

The game definitely had too many “Perverted” scenes. A couple perverted scenes can be over looked but a full blown PHOTO Shoot?! Its even has moaning sounds in the background~!  I definitely think the game could’ve done without the photo shoot.

Also can some1 please tell me why Naomi is dressed like a slut? Watch this video… why is a genius scientist showing off that much?! Hmm?

- I had to constantly swap items. From the “SOLID EYE” > “RATIONS” > “SOLID EYE”.  Also from the Tranquilizer gun > M4 > Rocket Launcher > M4. Konami couldn’t fix this?  The directional pad wasn’t even used in the game… I’m sure they could’ve made this more seamless.

- When Snake crawls very slowly he looks absolute ridiculous.  WTF is he doing?

- Ocelot became a b*tch. The son of “Boss”, a triple agent and badass solider, gets owned by Liquids hand?! Wtf?

- OK so Sunny saves everyone with FOX ALIVE?? So you’re telling me a 5 year old kid saves mankind by outsmarting military intelligence and creating super computer virus? rightttt!

(good job Sunny!)

Johnny?! Are you serious?  How are you going to make a minor character like Johnny and give him a major role? Hideo could’ve made him a Grey fox clone or SOMETHING cooler… Johnny? From mgs!? GTFO

- Tons of useless guns.  Its cool to have a wide selection of weapons but really, besides your core 4 to 5 weapons… are the other really necessary?  I only used the M4, P90, Desert Eagle (just cause i wanted to be badass) and the Traq gun.

- Drebin’s Monkey. I wanted to shoot his face off.

Hopefully they will get it right for #5!

    What’s the deal with Sunny anyway cooking those eggs all the time??

    PLUS, did anyone notice the picture in the cooking area where sunny is most of the time. I think it kinda looks like OLGA from MGS2. Is that sunny’s mother or something?

    definitely sounds like you didn’t finish teh game or didn’t understand parts of it with some of your issues.

    Maybe she cooked eggs all the time because there was chickens on the plane!

    @LilNim

    @ linim
    its pretty clear that u didn’t pay attention to any of the cut-scenes as sunny told naomi that the lady in the picture is her mother, and otacon says not 5 mins later that they only have ration and eggs on the on the carrier thats y she cooks eggs all the time

    Speaking of perverted stuff, don’t forget to mention that part about using sixaxis when you call Rose. It’ll make her bewbs bounce around.

  10. LilNim says:

    July 28th, 2008at 2:36 am(#)

    Well I did finish the game but skipped most cutsecenes!!

    I also noticed that the chickens were named Solid, Liquid and Solidus.

    Played second time on big boss hard to get the bandana (no kills) now stuck on the final fight.

    I also noticed that the chickens were named Solid, Liquid and Solidus.

    skipping the cutscenes doesn’t help…. i can understand why. they’re so long! i loved the production… but, still. I’d have liked more action to break up the story. that’s my biggest complaint. i feel that more weapons should have silencer compatibility. and seriously… why do they break all the time? they don’t IRL. nonetheless, MGS4 has been the best game I’ve played this generation. Sadly, we don’t have internet at my home, or i’d play MGO quite often.

  13. admeister says:

    July 28th, 2008at 3:43 am(#)

    This is a bit silly, you call that stuff things that are horribly wrong with MGS4? Hardly. Lets’ take a look at your points.

    1.) The photo shoot is an easter egg, it’s meant to to be fun, something to discover on later play throughs. Will most people come across it when they play the game? No. If you don’t like it personally, you’re hardly being forced to view it.

    2.) As for Naomi, is that really a big deal? She can dress however she wants, frankly I’m not particularly bothered about the character designing there. Next you’ll start complaining about EVA and the posters.

    3.) As for the D-Pad, it is used to zoom in/zoom out in first person scope mode, but I do agree that it could have been used more, especially with the number of weapons there are in the game. That said, it’s hardly game breaking, or “horribly wrong”, it didn’t bother me at all.

    4.) I don’t think you understand what was going on with the arm and Liquid’s personality. Read up on it.

    5.) As for Sunny (she’s not 5 years old, she was already born in MGS2), she’s established as a child genius, a little like Emma was in MGS2. And don’t forget, Naomi wrote a lot of the program that took out the Patriots.

    6.) I’m not sure why you’re so bothered by Johnny, can’t Hideo get away with introducing a few new characters to the series? I thought it was an interesting little tie-in with MGS, though I reckon the story could have done without the wedding really.

    7.) I wouldn’t call the guns useless. While you personally may have not used many of them while playing the game, others (including myself) used quite a lot of them. I’d have to say there’s probably more than neccessary, but you can’t really complain about variety.

    8.)You don’t like Little Gray? I don’t see what’s so bad about him, he’s a form of comic relief really, even if he is only a monkey.

    This is just pathetic, if your having to use that many rations you suck at mgs4, i don’t know stop getting spotted might help it some, sliencers are also useful.

    Btw did you try and use the ipod with sailor playing it increases your health at a very substanical rate, how do you think people get fox, hound, fh or big boss emblems.

    I thought the photo sessions was an interesting idea, as for naomi’s clothing, a bit odd, but i am not gay so i didn’t mind it.

    It is a stealth game so i don’t know maybe running flat out or moving quickly when the enemy is close by,would cause too much noise an d lead to an alert.

    Okay the rpg is only useful for taking out apc’s in the first level and maybe a choppers in 2 and 3, never tried.

    Every weapon in the game except maybe the dolls is useful and maybe some of the sleep mines, once you have the m4 customized the rest of the assault rifles are inferior, not enough slots.

    I notice you make no mention of the grenade varity, noor the mk3, the sniper rifles, grenade launchers, and the rail gun that is only really useful for killing gekkos.

    You say mgs4 is one of your favorite games, considering you didn’t even know the ending of the game, you sound more like you played the first lvl and skimmed the rest very briefly then wrote this crap blog.

    Actually naomi wrote 3/4’s i believe of the program sunny finished it up, you know sometimes kids are alot smarter than we give them credit for, also it was an ai created 40-50 yrs ago.

    Okay so you want the items and the weapons controled with the d pad, that has to be one of the stupidest things i have heard of in this whole rant.

    I think a better title is annoying drama queen, pretends to be a gamer and talks about mgs4, as if they have played it.

    Jesus frickin christ, this was the most ridiculous article ever. Someone actually complaining about all the “sluttiness” in the game? Someone actually has an issue with it?!? If anything, there should be MORE of it! I’ve never played a single MGS game at all and after beating MGS4, I pretty have a good idea of whats going on with the whole storyline and all. The cutscenes pretty much explains everything, and for those parts that it doesn’t explain….look it up, duh. Its long but…so what, its actually cool as hell to watch. Everything else is common sense if you can put 2 and 2 together. And the monkey thing…who cares…just comic relief.

    I have to agree about one thing you wrote: snake crawling. Especially during the beginning of Act 2 when he is crawling in the bushes, he looks RIDICULOUS!!! WTF is he doing looking like a complete ass? That’s probably the worst scene I’ve ever seen in gaming and every time I play the game, I keep being amazed at how they were able to leave it intact in this form!

  20. wrixel says:

    July 28th, 2008at 9:15 am(#)

    @ joegamer
    yes I did play game. In MGS2 Ocelot has Liquids arm which causes him to have a dormant “Liquid” personality. This personality eventually takes over in MGS4, so yea, Ocelot was controlled by “Liquid”
    @Lilnim
    Olga is Sunny’s mom and she’s cooking eggs cause they probably don’t have anything else =D
    @Justin
    I did finish the game, these are just some complaints I had ^^
    @Tim
    o.O I didn’t know about calling Rose (shaking 6axis)
    @LilNim again
    Don’t skip the cut scenes, those are the best cut scenes in gaming history!
    @benji
    I definitely agree with having more silenced weapons. They provide you with one solid silenced gun… MGO is ridiculously fun sorry you cant play.

    @admeister
    I agree with you, “HORRIBLY WRONG” is a bit extreme, I guess the title was a bit extreme. >.<

    1) I agree with you, its an easter egg, but you have to admit….they definitely above and beyond for this one =D
    2) Haha im just nitpicking about Naomi, I found her to be ridiculously hot…
    3) D-pad could’ve been put to better use.
    4) As for Liquid, from my understanding, Ocelot put liquids arm on himself. Liquids personality eventually took over Ocelot? Is that wrong??
    5) I just found it funny how Sunny and Naomi outsmarted the Patriots AI systems… that’s all.
    6) I just thought that Johnny was a little too comical for the series. Yea I also didn’t like the wedding.
    7) Yeaa I just found that I had a lot of useless guns.
    Haha little Gray and his obsessions with Snake’s cigs? He was cute =D im just being an ass.

    @mark
    1) Yea I used lot of rations especially during boss fights. =D
    2) Didn’t know about that IPOD trick! Thanks!
    3) Photo sessions was unique I agree. Hey I liked her outfit too! Just thought it was a little perverted that’s all.
    4) Yea I didn’t mention all of the nades, an other items…. I thought it was a pain in the ass to constantly swap into them.
    5) What makes you think I didn’t beat the game? How else would I know Sunny saves everyone with fox alive?
    6) Title definitely could’ve been better “Horribly Wrong” is a bit extreme, but im entitled to my opinions =P

    @marcusfenix
    Yea this was just some comments I had….its amazing how everyone is attacking me.

    @Boo Radley
    Im really sorry about the Spoilers, I should’ve had a warning.

    @Jagon
    I think you caps lock button is broken.

    @DIMA
    I totally agree with YOU!! WTF was that!? Hahah it was funny though…

    First, Solid Snake is a perv. So that’s normal. Second, Ocelot is always Ocelot. Spolier Part, and you can read this if you download the MGS Database:

    Ocelot was just possessed by liquid in MGS2. Then, he got a fullmetal alchemist arm, to get rid of that stupid liquid.

    Why does he behave like liquid then? To fool the system, to fool the Patriots. He, Eva, Naomi, and maybe someone more I could be forgetting, just wanted to kill the system, the patriots, to make Big Boss live again. For that, Liquid started to use nanomachines and hypnotherapy, to keep the liquid spirit on him, make him believe he wanted to nuke JD and conquer the world with the patriots system. This also motivated solid to act, to kill the patriots system and to free big boss (and kill zero too). So, there is the saying in the game, cats like to play snake. (ocelot is a type of feline btw). Please correct me if i’m wrong.

    Newfag is obviously a newfag.
    You never played the game.
    You are probably the biggest idiot I have ever seen.
    You should probably never post anything ever again.

    -btw there WERE more ppl but the all died.
    -lmao “fullmetal alchemist arm”
    -the maker of this article might have PLAYED the game and MAYBE beat it…but he damn sure didnt pay enough attention. yeah i know hes just playing about some stuff but other things you mentioned just makes you seem like an idiot. just my thoughts

  27. joegamer says:

    July 28th, 2008at 2:32 pm(#)

    ocelot had liquids arm removed before msg4. liquid was not apart of his body in mgs4.

    seriously… it answers it all near the end of the game.

  28. wrixel says:

    July 28th, 2008at 3:26 pm(#)

    cool i mustve not been paying attention to that part, but now that you mention it, I was wondering why his name changed during the last battle. Honest mistake!

    how sick was that LAST epic battle?! That was awesome! and the split screens as snake is crawling through the microwave chambers..

  29. jordankid93 says:

    July 28th, 2008at 4:30 pm(#)

    lol i actually got to mad (yet thought that it was amazingly done and wouldnt want it to change) that i had to pay attention to gameplay while in the other half of the screen something interesting like the vamp fight was going on. i hate it and love it so much…such bitter sweetness…
