The Problem with Metal Gear Solid

Yes, that's an actual quote from Metal Gear Solid series creator and director, Hideo Kojima

Don't get me wrong, Metal Gear Solid's gameplay is, well, solid. I've just always had a problem with all the overwrought cut scenes. MGS3 had 3+ hours of that nonsense. If I wanted to watch mind numbingly ceaseless exposition, I'd watch the Star Wars prequels.


Now I understand where Kojima gets his "love blooms on the battlefield" drivel. It's at least as good as Lucas' genius romance dialogue: "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth."
