should I play this instead of the original? Posted on May 14, 2023 by Anonymous should I play this instead of the original?
Twin Snakes is a novelty/curiosity piece that you play AFTER the original to see the differences (and laugh at them). Under no circumstances should you play it first.
Well I only played twink sakes and phantom pain. Now what?
I'm sorry for your loss.
You played that actually fun games and probably avoided going down the autistic rabbit hole of a story congratulations
>replaced dark grim atmosphere with ligher and comical atmosphere
>"Wahoo Matrix craaaazy!" cutscenes which destroyed the serious tone of the original game
Twin Snakes should only be played after playing the original
I really don't get why people get so pissy about the cutscenes
You’re pretty dense if you can’t see why Snake pointing a gun at Baker for no reason or Snake doing a 360 no scope would rustle people’s jimmies.
they don't have the grounded tacticool element of 2 and 3 to balance out the weirdness. snake and bigboss never did freak shit.
The original. It holds up very well imo. TS brings in a bunch of mechanics from the sequel that were never considered in the design of the first game.
Because Snake's thing is that he is a really good soldier with no special powers who adapts and overcomes the odds. In TS he is pulling ridiculous The Matrix moves like jumping off an incoming missile and firing a stinger directly into a helicopter cockpit, among other things he never does in any of the other games.
I'm pissy about the boxart I hope it looks better in Japan or Europe because this one sucks
I don't either. The cutscenes are no more ridiculous then what happens in the later entries to the series like Raiden break-dancing in battle.
People complaining about Twin snakes are autistic and think a different voice inflection on like two cutscenes makes or breaks the game
>different voice inflection
Lmao how disingenuous can you get?
Yes and I think it's the better version.
oh yeah bros metal gear solid on the playstation that's such an outdated boomer game you should play the gamecube version that also came out 20 years ago
who the fuck likes twin snakes? it isn't even contrarianism at this point, you're just literally saying that you like shit.
Beat way I've seen it described is that twin snakes is like a Bollywood version of MGS. Sure, it tries to be very cool, but often in the absolute goofiest way possible. Also, the voices for a few of the characters are shit compared to the original.
Also, play the original on easy first. It was originally released in Japan with only the easy difficulty available, and normal feels a bit too punishing for it to feel balanced. I had a harder time with the end boss of MGS on normal than a bulk of the bosses from the Souls series. Difficulty is fine, but it seems to break the pace of the game when the sneaking sections are pretty easy going but you're suddenly expected to perform relatively flawlessly for bosses.
>Beat way I've seen it described is that twin snakes is like a Bollywood version of MGS
That's silly. There's no musical numbers or rape scenes.
Hideo Kojimo hand picked the JAPANESE film director Ryuhei Kitamura himself to do the cutscenes for the remake because he specifically wanted that sort of action in the game. Twin Snakes is the Japanese version of MGS except now with a bigger budget. Pic related, Hideo Kojima saw this and said "Yes! That's exactly what I want MGS to be!"
Then it's your typical case of an artist either not know what made his art great or just trying to piss off his audience
>Better cutscene direction
>Higher quality audio
>Gameplay on par with MGS 2
>Hideo Kojima's intended vision and what he considers the cannon version
You should never play twin snakes
Play both. Play all the other Metal Gear games too.
Yeah man it’s way better than the original, better controls too fuck the psx outdated garbage, you could use a fucking Dreamcast power cable on the motherfucker (which was based)
OG is better but people shit on this game too hard because of the over the top cutscenes in a series where people are named fucking hotcold man, vampires are a thing, there are giant mooing robots, you fight a boss who is on roller skates, and one of the villains brainwashes himslef into thinking he is another person because he grafted that person's arm on him
>and one of the villains brainwashes himslef into thinking he is another person because he grafted that person's arm on him
mgs4 also sucks
no. play the original first, then play this to see what it would be like if it was remade in the mgs2 engine (daily reminder that kojima himself asked the cutscene director to throw away the normal cutscenes and go full matrix, this is all on kojima)
good fucking god no. It's dogshit. Twin Snakes should be ignored. Just play the original.
