I'll watch any and everything that gets put out on this leading to release. Sometimes I wanna go in dark for story focused games but for some reason this isn't one I'm bothered being spoiled by. Show it all to me Kojima.

Even if the game is shit I own a lot to Kojima so I trust him. But I can't resist watching the footage, my memory is bad and its still 2 months for release, so probably I will forget a lot of things.

At the movies I mostly close my eyes during the trailers beforehand (I don't like getting spoiled with movies).

That said: I'm gonna watch this gameplay; gonna watch it all! *grabs popcorn*

Kojima is one of the only creators that has never disappointed me, but I want to and probably will watch this out of needing to know more

I'm more than intrigued enough. If it's intended to be a game of discovery/surprises, then I'm all in.

Time to strap on the blindfold for a couple of months.

Fuck yes i trust him, the man is a legend.

His track record more than speaks for itself, it's nothing but top tier quality games. Some of the best of all time with game mechanics and gamefeel that is unrilaved.

And while my hype is at an all time high and it will be insanely hard to resist watching this, because of this statement he has put out I'll be resisting the urge.

I'm planning to get this bonkers video game no matter what it is even if it fuels this chaos.

I never watch anything more than official trailers of video games, "the first 30 minutes" of games and such is never something I watch. I'll see it when I play it.

After the disaster that was metal gear solid 5 I'm hesitant to buy another one of his games

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 completed the Gears 5 story yesterday.

Right now i'm enjoying Greedfall but i'm not playing games all the time. I enjoy reading about gaming news and watch stuff on youtube. Blocking stuff for a week or two is possible but for 2 months?

I won't watch all of the gameplayvideos but i'll watch enough. I'd rather be slightly spoiled by Kojima than by some random asswipe on youtube/ERA.

I get what you're saying. I'm not going on a complete blackout either, I'll still take part in DS threads but that's where I draw the line.

Time will pass as long as you stick with what you're enjoying.

I have the feeling that he caving in here will hurt the game in the end. He followed his own agenda with his own unique kind of marketing, like he always did, but for the first time, he caved in and is trying to explain the game like crazy recently, while the game doesn't f'n need that.
And now this gameplay with the message to not watch it if you trust him.

That feels so desperate, like damage control and just not like Kojima at all, kinda like pressure from someone else. Very weird.

So I havent watched anything since last years e3 trailer for the most part, and I dont trust them but I dont distrust him. From the sounds of it, this is an online only game?

I can’t even begin to understand how this would convince someone to not watch the footage.

You’ve barely shown your damn game after a colossal failure with MGS5. I’m not just going to trust you the game is good.

So I don’t really trust him - but I do value going into something like this a little blind. Not watching

Yeah actually, I'm going to agree on this one. Commencing blackout. Will have to find that browser extension to hide spoilers.

I still need convincing, so I'm gonna watch. Even if I didn't, my self control I don't think is as strong as some of you guys that go on total blackout before game release.

Not ready for the inevitable thread that crams as many spoilers as possible into the subject line.

I'll be watching and waiting for reviews. I had the realization that I havent really enjoyed a game from him in 15 years. Since this is his chance at getting to do something fresh I'm hoping it turns out to be a must play game.

Dear Kojima, I know how to go on media blackout for games I'm interested in, thanks.

Still haven't gotten RDR 2 yet, still on media blackout. I've just seem some glitches and whatnot. Nothing major.

I’m watching because I’m not a fool who will blindly pay 60 dollars for a game without knowing anything. Less in these months that are LOADED of games.

I still trust him though, I’m one of the few people who liked MGS5 ... but everything that has been shown about DS was bad.

It makes me wonder if this was a reaction to the response the other gameplay received.

It's a bit heady to think your fanbase should just want your game based on your involvement. I don't think this should be a spoiler, even if someone loves Kojima. It's a new IP and there's infinite potential for it to be something one might not enjoy. Either release the footage or don't, but if you ask me there's no harm in a true gameplay reveal so near to release.

The game looks very mediocre from what's been shown so far, so I'm going to have to watch this.

Trust no one.
