Me and a group of friends decided to go dark from now until release lol. I'm not even a huge diehard Kojima fan but I'm expecting an entertaining experience.

What he's driving at is basically the difference between seeing that 10 min dark knight footage before the movie came out vs. experiencing it for the first time in a theater, like the former did a great job drumming up hype for the movie and got a lot of ppl who dont really believe in super hero movies on board, but hed like you to experience it in context and thinks that's better, it's basically a tip for ppl who dont need marketing to be sold on the game

I'm going to try going into this game with completely expectations. Zero hype, and zero knowledge of wtf it even it is. The first reveal teaser was incredibly hype, but the more I saw of it, the more of my interest started going away (the sparse gameplay "demo" didn't help, either). I love the mystery and sci fi intrigue of the game's story and setting from earlier marketing.

I know ya'all fuckers gonna spoil this via gifs anyways!

But yeah tempted to go dark honestly. I had a gut feeling that this is one of those games where less you know is the better.

I was gonna watch,but I fear the gameplay will show cool stuff to sell the game to the disbelievers,stuff probably would be cool to discover by myself.But even if I not watch,will be almost impossible to avoid spoilers,gifs will be everywhere,and I will want to see the reaction by the others users.

MGSV was disappointing and the last DS showing was hype killer. Sorry, but I don't have blind faith in you. I will watch the whole thing.

Never played a Kojima game and I’m interested in DS. I want to like the game but am so put off by this stuff surrounding Kojima and how he talks about people who might doubt him after the little to no gameplay he’s released. As well as being extremely vague about what the game is even about.

I don't have blind faith in the game at all. However I'll avoid the trailer to play it for myself without preconceived judgements.

Depends on what trust means to be honest. After MGS3 he didn't make any games I really enjoyed all that much. Found them immensely overrated.

There's nothing he can say to convince me. Will wait for reviews, both professional and from Era members.

Would totally go in blind. I trust Kojima completely.

But i'm weak. Can't wait for 2 months.

And we're on ERA. It's going to be plastered with gifs and debates for weeks.

I'm sorry, but after only seeing the ability to pee and talking to Geoff Keighley after years of teasing, I'll gladly watch the presentation to see what kind of miracle genre he's supposedly creating.

Alright. I don't need the entire game spoiled.

Probably everyone should stop watching marketing material regardless, and not get their expectations way out of whack.

So people watching this are the baddies because they don't trust Kojima? I feel like this is the implication and I don't like it if that's the case.
I know there are lots of details scattered in the trailers but I'll watch tomorrow's gameplay because I want to see more of the game.That's it.

Watching the shit out of this.

I just wanna know what the gameplay is like, if it's a delivery man walking simulator i can finally move on and stop reading anything about this game.

My eyes fucking roll every time i hear it called a "Social Strand Game", 90% of the shit i read about this game feels so pretentious.

Why don't you busy yourself with a game that'll hold your interest for the time being instead of watching DS gameplay tomorrow?

I'm currently playing Gears 5 campaign to completion.

I trust you Kojima and I'll try, but it's gonna be hard to not notice the 1000+ post thread on it. Gotta be strong.

I've seen enough badass trailers at this point to be convinced. I'm on a media blackout until release.

I don’t think I’ve seen any actually gameplay besides walking over a green hill and I don’t plan on changing that now.

I don’t know man. This sounds like a train wreck. Bought every main line MGS, but I haven’t enjoyed one since Snake Eater.

Ok so will mods ban people posting gifs outside the main OT and gameplay threads? You know people gonna be spamming shit with some bs memes to be "cool".

I want to go in blind but people time and time again cant stop themselves posting spoilers everywhere.
