can we please make that poster the official cover instead of the generic boring ass dude chin down, eyes up cover we have now?
I preordered digital but yeah the box art could have been so much better seeing how there’s tons of beautiful art for this game. Always weird to see teams going with something more bland. The Witcher 3 and Bloodborne come to mind.
I think you missed the point of those games. Big Boss is not a good guy, his philosophy is not to be worshipped. Kojima is clearly a big liberal who believes in democracy, freedom, globalization, and big government.
The main theme of MGS4 and Ground Zeroes (one of the most anti-american games ever made) is a cover of Here's to You, a song about two anarchists who wrongfully executed by the U.S government. The three main characters (Big Boss, Raiden, and Solid Snake) are all betrayed United State soldiers who form rogue groups to combat the U.S (Big Boss way more then the others.). Outer Heaven's philosophy is based around anarchism, and there's a whole lot more.
Except the government is always portrayed as incompetent, or at worse, corrupt and villainous. Metal Gear is one of the most anti-government series in existence.
Pretty much what watching gen:LOCK feels like. In both cases, still interested in seeing what they're getting at, just wish they didn't more or less drop me in the middle of the story they're telling.
This game sure makes people angry and upset.
