Do you want to play a game that has actually good gameplay with clever and flexible level design? Then don't play MGS2.

Do you want to play a game that has stellar writing with a firm grasp on pacing and subtlety? Then don't play MGS2.

Do you want to play a game that you can go online and tell everyone how smart it is, and by proxy, how smart you are for "getting" it? Then, by all means, play MGS2.

Are you a teenager or young adult who thinks themes are the only thing that matter? That the quality of the writing is somehow dependent on them. Then, by all means, play MGS2.

Do you want to play a masterpiece? Something that has deep gameplay, best-in-class boss fights and a story that is immaculately paced and presented. Then, for God's sake, play MGS3.

Title
its awesome, but the ending...
man, what an ending, just for the ending alone is my favorite game, i played it the right time, becuase i was lost in identity just as raiden, and everything that snake said there, light me up. (the 3th playthrough tho)

its the first game that REALLY changed me, in my way of seeing the world and myself, and because of that, it breaks the barrier of just a videogame and it becomes art..

scott pilgrim defined me, no more heroes made me realize what i actually like, and metal gear solid 2 changed my life.

okay, this was cheesy i know, and i came a lot, but fuck it, it is that great.

Title
the game that predicted the future
less of a "game that predicted the future" claimed by those who were algorithmically recommended generic video essays created by the post-gamergate mob claiming the same with a strange implication that GW was justified -- (in the context of "💀 culture" being the downfall of western civilization) and that this game isn't just commentary on echo chambers, which have always existed and aren't even new to the internet -- ignoring anything past that codec call and Snake's speech about building the future (aka what Kojima himself thinks), in addition to Kojima's own reflection on propaganda throughout Japan's history, postmodernism in Japan, otaku & fandoms logical conclusion (e.g his experience, along with many other artists at the time, dealing with anonymous death threats from 2chan "fans" and their self identification with his products) and how the internet has acted as the perfect tool to let this simmer & bubble this since the 90s.

if anything this game just reflects how little has changed asides from an intensification of the consumer identifying with product and said culture.

the closest thing to a prediction I'd say it captured was the fact that echo chambers and perverse rabbit holes are easier to unintentionally fall into more than ever via social media algorithms (e.g look at how QAnon has affected families, whether it was those who were once considered "normal" by their family or already had a tendency towards acceptable conspiracy theories [9/11], or concepts such as vaccine hesitancy. of course, cults have always existed, but more than ever everyone is blessed to be apart of a vocal minority, and the 4chan to twitter/grandmas social media pipeline is real).

oh, but how's the actual game?
me like sneaky stealth fun and the story is expository bananas that clicks with my brain perfectly. whether I think back to when I was 11 and first played this, where it was unlike anything else I had played, or just a couple years ago, it will never get old, swimming section and all.

Title
Overrated, but a Great Entry in the Series
Metal Gear Solid 2 is a great game undoubtedly. Gameplay wise, it did everything it was supposed to as a sequel. Sneaking around felt cooler and easier than the last game, the guard AI was improved, the game runs at a smoother frame rate, and the story is a good Tom Clancy-esque thriller that sometimes misses the mark but overall ups the ante well.

The gameplay is the element of this package that has been improved the most. Guards can spot you in various ways now. They can detect footprints from rain, hear at greater distances, they will go to call for backup when they spot you, and they can now clear rooms when you are hiding which is in my opinion the best part of the game. The tension can really be felt when you are in Evasion mode and are stuck in your hiding place as 4 guards enter the tiny room you're in, trying to find you. There's also more tools that the player has at their disposal too, such as being able to peek around corners or stand on their toes, shooting objects to get the attention of guards, rolling/cartwheeling to get past enemies quickly, hanging mode, the ability to walk, the ability to hold up guards. There's just so much to do as a player in this world. For the arcade-leaning Metal Gear games, this one easily stands heads and shoulders above the rest.

The environments are arguably not as improved, but still very well-designed. Often there's great use of verticality where guards walking on catwalks will spot you from above or below. The hanging mode gets a real workout in the Plant chapter as a result of this verticality and there's some really clever ways you can get past guards as a result. The textures in these environments are clean and lend just the right amount of detail to make them really believable (if you can stand lots of grey and orange that is), and the water effects like the rain in the Tanker or the underwater sections in the Plant chapter are well done too. I do have a bit of an issue, however, with the latter half of the Plant chapter due to how linear the stealth can get and how easy some sections are compared to the earlier half of the game, but overall the levels are designed intelligently.

Recently in the past decade or so, there has been a sort of reappraisal for this game because of its themes. Like everyone decided now that technology could be bad and is ruining our lives. Kojima didn't predict anything. What's depicted in MGS2 through the Patriots is lampshading internet culture of the time that was beginning to develop in the late 90s and early 2000's when this game's script was written. Indeed, much of the discourse you see back then about Metal Gear Solid 2 isn't even close to the quality of conversation that you can get on a place like Reddit, and even that site has major quality issues. There are elements well done, though. Most of the strength of the story comes from how it remixes the original Metal Gear Solid to make its point on gaming culture. MGS2 loves to laugh in the face of players who want to be badasses, and sometimes it can be quite funny such as during Raiden's introduction where he claims that he has essentially played a lot of video games so he knows what he is doing. Solid Snake is also a genuinely badass character despite never having to play as him. His accomplishments definitely seem more impressive looking from the outside in, contrasting with the player's actions of cartwheeling around to avoid damage and screwing up stealth segments every now and then. In these aspects, the story works. It only really trips up in my opinion with the Otacon subplot which I still don't see much of a point in other than just making him lose someone again for the sake of it. At least he gets some character development out of it.

The extra features are quite strong too in the Subsistence and HD Edition versions. You have a bunch of challenging VR Missions to tackle and some new "Snake Tales" missions, both modes which you can play as Snake in various outfits and even Raiden with his HF Blade which is a great treat considering how short that section of the game was. These extra modes are a fair bit more challenging in my opinion than the main game except on Extreme of course, and will really let you play with the whole sandbox that the game will let you leave on the table if you so choose to in the main game for that sweet 0 kills stat at the end.

Metal Gear Solid 2 is a great video game, despite what people have said and continue to say about it. I wouldn't say that these days it subverts any kind of expectations, but it does offer a massive improvement over the original game in terms of gameplay and a new story to get immersed in with the Metal Gear universe.

Title
The future never looked so bright!
When I first played this game years ago, I never truly understood the level of depth that was inside of this game. The nuances that were written and drawn that allow for this story to be so ahead of its time that it gives me palpitations when I play because I fully expect the game to stumble over its own feet, to shoot too far or to go too wild. Somehow, this game never does that, blending the line between fiction and reality in such a way that this game could be considered a horror game at some points. Its not the best gameplay wise in the series, not by a long shot, but the story, the nuance, that's where this game is at its apex. This game is so head and shoulders above the rest in how forward thinking it is, I wonder if Hideo and CO. really thought that this was going to become even closely resembling real life. Maybe they thought this was a far flung fiction, who knows. All i know is that THE SPEECH (if you've played or even if you haven't, you know exactly what I'm talking about) is one of the most hauntingly accurate predictions of the future I have ever seen. Might I add as well, The villains are so interesting, the fact that in the larger scheme of things, they represent not the true villains but those who are striking out at the true villains really fantastically muddies the water in the story as to who is really on who's side. One of my favorite moments in the game would have to be the mg battle royale. Good god, what a moment, what a game. Please. If you have any inkling to play this series, play it for this game.

Title
Far from a perfect game but amazing ending
This game started off pretty slow, I'll admit that it didn't manage to hook me until the late game. The start of the game is filled with lots of long cutscenes which interrupt the flow and I felt like I would rather be watching these cutscenes than actually playing it, which wasn't a good sign. It doesn't truly become fun until half-way through the Raiden section, when you finally get enough decent weapons, more bossfights and less long cutscenes.

The stealth gameplay was pretty annoying in this one. It really doesn't take much to get spotted in this game, sometimes I'd get spotted when I thought I was far enough away, and there are lots of tricky rooms where there aren't many good places to hide or sneak past. Trying to sneak past enemies with no ammo was painful, especially before you unlock the radar for that area. And even if you did have ammo, most of the time when I tried to take an enemy out, they'd start talking on the radio before I could finish them off, leading to more enemies arriving who discover the dead body, replacing the dead enemy and forcing you to hide. When you do get spotted, you can't just run and gun like in the first game as you'll definitely die. Instead you have no option but to hide if you want to live, which takes forever in this game due to the really long caution periods and makes it less fun. In fact, sometimes I would just let myself be killed instead of hiding so I could go back to playing the game quicker. It also didn't help that items are sparse in this game and don't respawn often, meaning that if you used up all your items you are basically screwed as the game is now much harder without them.

In terms of bossfights, this was a massive improvement over the first game and a lot more fun than the stealth sections. The highlights for me were the metal gear army fight which was epic and vamp's fight which was a fun challenge. However, there's not many bossfights at the start of the game, with only 1 in the snake mission, contributing to the slow start.

For the ending, I was expecting a big twist to come, but I did not think it would be as crazy as it was. In the last part of the game, the game constantly tells you again and again that what you've been told was a lie and that the real truth is something insane, or that a character has been betraying another character all along. It got to the point where I was completely overwhelmed and lost track of what side all of the characters were on. Truly mindblowing stuff. Also the ideas were interesting, with most characters having completely reasonable motivations and some good predictions for how the internet age will ruin us.

But with that being said, I don't think the story was a masterpiece. I feel like this got a lot of leeway because its a video game and one of the first games to try and tell a proper story. To be brutally honest, at times the story was cheesy, completely over the top and a convoluted mess. But I guess those are also the reasons why people love it so much. Not to mention, the whole Otacon's sister part was pure cringe and really out of place. The dialogue between Raiden and E.E. was offputting and I found myself laughing at her 'sad' death cutscene because of how bad it was, especially with Otacon admitting to incest and crying.

Overall, it is a great game, especially for being made in 2001, but not a masterpiece. I didn't like the original MGS game much so I was unsure of this at first but it won me over by the end!

    I really want to play this but I feel like I can't without first finishing MGS1, and that game is starting to feel like a slog

      mgs1 is indeed an absolute requirement to play this. just keep playing, its only like 6 hours

      mgs2 will hit so much harder after mgs1. don't miss out on the first game and play this one after you finish 1

    Only clicked on a second playthrough. But this shit rules. Definitely more of an espionage game than a stealth game. Slaps way harder when you go in expecting a game with a lot of great set piece moments and infiltration stuff, rather than the kind of open ended exploration and stealth of MGS1

      I'm just gonna repeat what i posted previosuly;

      "So you're telling me that if you play this on the difficulty on which stealth actually matters, the gameplay is a chore.

      But then if you play this on any difficulty that's lower, the stealth mechanics have as much depth as the stealth in an Uncharted game. On anything less than EE, the core of the gameplay is running inside lockers and waiting for a timer to go down which , maybe, just maybe, might make this a bad stealth game.

      So pick your poison, either a difficult chore or a mild snooze. End result; Bad Game"

    I really hate this video. It takes a really interesting text and then uses it as a chance to "both sides" American politics while spewing conservative talking points. On top of that his cadence and presentation make me think he believes he's making some huge revelation. Just generally shit video

      Would you complain if instead of "both sides" american politics the video was 100% liberal?

      I dont see what is bad about the talking points. The talking points on video are pretty valid (like the "political biases" one). Talking points shouldnt be limited, especially related to power and political topics.
