It’s like most Sony exclusive games, OVERHYPED AF. Mostly it’s about story and graphics. Not really about gameplay. More like a movie.
2. Not that seemingly matters because we have people here slagging off MGSV for not having enough/the right kind of story! Whilst ignoring the fact that its gameplay was overwhelmingly favorably received.
3. As to Kojima's "value" to the project. There is an example of what a Kojima-less MGS title looks like: MGS: Survive. How well did that do in comparison to its predecessors and what great things did it bring to the table that weren't inherited from Phantom Pain?
