Has Metal Gear's Storyline become too convoluted?

Aug 10, 2013
I love the Metal Gear Solid series. I think that it has a rich story to tell and a lot of interesting characters. I absolutely loved MGS on the PS1 and MGS3 on the PS2. When I played MGS4 on the PS3, I enjoyed it a lot too. But I can't help but think that the storyline has become too convoluted and too intricate. There are too many branching paths that it becomes a bit too hard to grasp at times don't you think?

Not really. I would always enjoy playing Metal Gear games it's very, very interesting. I know it can be a bit confusing at times but then you get that moment like "HA! I knew it!" and you just get this moment of beaming self satisfaction. And although it can get a bit confusing I think that it's a part which you cannot take away from Metal Gear. After all MG is one of those games that aim to really portray what war is and I don't think that's possible unless they become intricate with the story. After all war isn't just a linear idea. I am so looking forward to the new MG game!
