I was browsing online until I came across a website where parents review video games for other parents. Curiosity got the best of me and i researched mgs4 in which I found a lady crapping all over mgs4 with words like "this game is terrible. first off it has terrible graphics 2nd it has too much blood 3rd TERRIBLE online" only to leave an e-mail for discussion.
Now I'm not going to post her e-mail but you can see her post on this page titled "shocking"
How would you respond to her? I sent something like
Hi I recently I saw you post and I agree for the most point. This is a very mature game with lots of mature themes. I would not like my 8 year old sister playing a game with so much violence.
However as for it being terrible and with all due respect in the world :you are an idiot. The metal gear series has some of the most complex, elaborate, and deep story lines in the history of gaming. Not only has it received the best reviews from the most respected game critics in the world it's sales have surpassed 4 million. I'm not going to tell you what to do in your own home but I'm tired of idiots like you telling the gaming generation the "evils" of video games.
Look lady I'm 26 years old, pre med student, a responsible young adult and I have been playing the series for 20 years. One of the major driving forces behind the series is political intrigue (*gasp* kids do like to think), philosophical debate, ethics, science, and evolution of society. Is there violence yes, war yes, betrayal and sexual themes yes but it's just a form of entertainment.
Hey here is an idea how about playing the entire game first before you judge it.
