    3 could have been the swan song for the series and I would have been fine with that. Although it got better mechanically, it never got better as a whole piece than in that game. It never got better on delivering the 'jap G.I. Joe' theme this series had. Wacky but fairly straight forward plot, cool boss fights, interesting setting, some good emotional beats, outstanding art direction, a sense of forward momentum throughout, perfect length, watchable cutscenes. One of the best games from what many consider the best console and peak console era.

    Can't brofist enough. The only bad thing in MGS3 are the controls.

    I've always been a big believer of Fukushima based on a few things, but who knows how much or what exactly he's responsible for without any direct interviews with people at KP. If Kojima is to be believed, all Fukushima was responsible for in MGS1 (and 2 if memory serves me right from an old ass magazine interview) is the codec conversations. Maybe that's the only stuff he directly wrote, but I do believe his influence was much bigger than that considering how the backdrop for all games following his absence lack that same touch -- plus how politically driven Ghost Babel is (the one game he wrote himself)

    Either way, to further my point about how Kojima thinks of this themes, there's this quote from Kojima at TGS

    Jesus, he's just like a child "can't we just have WORLD PEACE pretty please?". It's embarrassing that he's considered a thinker in vidya circles at all.

    lmao what pretentious bullshit. kojima drones reaching again.

    Taoists called it a 'baby' because during meditation(neidan) they can sometimes feel something in the lower abdomen area(dantian) that helps with deep breathing. It feels like a baby is kicking you so that's where the name came from. It doesn't mean there's an actual baby in there.

    It's all voodoo mojo stuff anyway. I doubt Kojima had this in mind when he came up with the baby in a can.

    Remember when Kojima drones said MGS2 was a postmodern deconstruction or whatever? Yeah Kojima said in an interview that was never his intention. He just pulled a bunch of stuff from pop culture because they were cool. Kek

    And yet it turned out a postmodern deconstruction. The guy is a genius, doing this unintentionally.
