I'm probably good just hearing 2nd hand impressions.

Not sure if I'm getting the game or not.

I'll give it a look. It's honestly not very encouraging that Kojima can't find a way to explain his game. He's literally asking you to buy it b/c "Kojima" is on the box. That said, I've never been interested in the metal gear games, so I don't have any level of trust built up with him. Hopefully it will be more interesting than what we saw at Gamescom.

I'm going to watch this because, so far, this game looks like it may be the most boring and dull gaming experience I've ever seen and I just cannot understand where the hype is coming from. Seems like it's all blind hype because people desperately want this game to be good. Hopefully this footage can change my mind.

With mgsV he gave a bunch of reviewers 40h with the game and still it wasn't enough to get the whole thing ( even flaws) so I'm not concerned about 80 minutes

I'm conflicted, because I want to go in completely blind. I trust the man!
But I don't know if I can resist the urge to watch...

Already pre-ordered and paid for. I never watch hour-long gameplay stuff before I play for myself anyway, I want to be surprised!

Gonna read some impressions around here though.

Better not let me down Kojima!!1

I'm going to need to watch this. He just said the other day he wasn't sure what this game was about.

I hate kojima and how he is much of a marketing man than a real director. Sorry, but that’s my opinion and don’t like any of his games since MGS3.
But even though that’s my feelings towards him, I really hope this game is great. I really want to play a horror game on a open world setting. No one never really did something like it.

If he really feels this way, why not say something like "The full demo could have spoilers that affect your enjoyment of the game when it is released. There will be a gameplay trailer cut from the footage released afterwards that avoids spoilers for those who want jump in completely fresh."

Also, there's been what? 30 minutes of cutscenes released for the game? Yet it's the gameplay footage that he's telling people not to watch.

Kojima is a great developer, but he really has a massive ego. This brings me right back to the whole "Don't trust early Destiny reviews" fiasco. That game was from a developer with a great history and it was a mess at launch.

I've seen only 1 gameplay video and the recent trailer.

I don't need to see anymore. I already know I want this.

thats a dope signature.

I will watch, the only thing that looks cool is the story elements but gameplay of what we have seen looks like a drag.

Is the actual gameplay the surprise so you get spoiled if you watch a gameplay trailer??
Nah I'm watching everything.
