Well...I didn't know I had some of that power in me!
Silly Sylver. When will you learn the power those words carry? You must be cautious with them.

I'm Batman. *thread reforms*

Ah. The great power of Batman.
Women flock to him. Such is the magnitude of his power. And awesome.

Batman is a pimp.

It's a video game universe rooted in some historical events, but it's still a series where bee's can abduct a man, it can rain blood at any moment and the fourth wall may be broken at any point in time. At some point, you have to figure people are going to be old enough to realize the game is not rooted in a hundred percent fact.
Let me be clear: I love the Metal Gear series, I think the games are hugely enjoyable. However, what you're describing here is exactly why I find the false pretense of "realism" so insulting. It's Kojima wanting to have it both ways, and cramming unkillable genetic supermen, psychic human/insect hybrids and electrokinetic bullshit into a game where you have to perform surgery on yourself to remove bullets after you get shot. I wish they would pick one or the other. But getting back to my earlier point...there's a kid I used to know who told me that he submitted a high school paper on the nuclear arms race based solely on "information" presented in the first MGS game, and he got an A for it. Leaving aside the obvious fact that this teacher should have been fired, I hope you can understand why I find this troubling.
Naked Snake wrote:That and MGS3 is meant to be a send-up of Bond films as much as it is an installment in the series, so some camp is to be expected.
Actually, while it may be intended to send up the Bond films, about 85% of MGS3's plot is lifted almost directly from the second Rambo movie. As is the plot of MGS1 from the movie Escape From New York. If you've never seen either of those films, watch them, and I think you'll see what I mean.

But that reminds me...let me share my own 'alternate' titles for the MGS games, as I think you'll find them as amusing as I do. Razz

Metal Gear Solid: Escape From Alaska
Mullet Gear Solid 2: The Homosexual Metaphor
Mullet Gear Solid 3: First Blood, Part II
Mustache Gear Solid 4


...I haven't played MGS4 as of yet, so I don't know what the most appropriate satirical subtitle for it might be...but I stand by the rest. Laughing

No offense meant, but if that sort of thing bothers you then I don't know how you deal with things that are "based on a true story". Again, taking it way too seriously. It's fiction that draws off some real life stuff. It's done all the time. No big deal.

No, fiction is condensing or combining some people or events when adapting "based on a true story" things to the screen or page for purposes such as fitting into a set running time, protecting the privacy of those involved, or heightening the emotional impact of an event. I believe this is often described as "narrative liberty".

Saying "the Cold War was a lie created by a small handful of people who manipulated governments to hide a few billion dollars" goes a little bit beyond narrative liberty or even fiction, into the realm of full-blown fantasy.

But anyway, it isn't even as much that stuff by itself that bugs me about the MGS games...it's the highly selective approach that they take to realism. If you want to have a game where the player has to mix medicine from forest mushrooms, then great; but don't then have people deflecting bullets with swords or shooting lightning bolts from their groin in the same game.

Not trying to refute, honestly. Don't care enough to bother. Just telling you that I'm definitely of the belief that you're taking it too seriously. I'll leave any debating up to Snake; I'm sure he'll give a good show.
