Metal Gear Survive “Why Zombies…?”




A trailer for the latest entry into the Metal Gear series – Metal Gear Survive – has been amassing a catastrophic amount of opprobrium online due to its zombie theme, with some even claiming the game to be a disgrace to Hideo Kojima’s name (despite him no longer even being with Konami).

Metal Gear Survive will apparently be a 4 player co-op game based around survival (hardly an original concept) and is set immediately after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, with the inclusion of zombies no doubt baffling many fans not just due to their blatant overuse in recent years but also their irrelevance to the series overall.

The controversial trailer, revealed at Gamescom 2016:

The few individuals excited for Metal Gear Survive can look forward to its release sometime in 2017 for the PC, Xbox One and PS4.

    This game needs to change the name for:

    Resident Evil crossover Metal Gear FPS

    Please Konami sell your IPs for other companies and DIE!

    Jim Sterling said it all about this game. A perfect "#FucKonami" move pulling off the cash-grab in most generic and blatant theme possible, not giving a shit for their IPs.

    Does Konami even have any original IP they haven't shat on anymore? Silent Hill, Castlevania, and now Metal Gear...

    I feel bad for Kojima. He now has to powerlessly witness the franchise he created be wrecked by the company that fired him. How bitter.

    Don't feel bad. We, the fans, will remember. Konami will go out with their pants down and their bottoms smacked.

    Too bad kojimbo already ruined it himself by releasing ground zeroes and phantom pain.

    But I guess its okay when kojima adds zombies to MGS, because the skulls are basically zombies.

    Oh, and lets not forget a flaming whale that eats a helicopter.

    But hey, its okay when kojimmy does it.

    Ruined what? Looks like it reviewed well and made a lot of money. Kojima, like his vision or not, is the goose that lays the golden egg. The fact Konami didn't recognize this and lost him just shows bad business decisions.

    Intelligence and super human abilities = zombie? No. And at least the flaming whale was unique and had some narrative logic to it. MGS has always been weird anyway. With Bees, telekinesis, giant mechs, ghosts, cyborgs, nanomachines, I don't get why anyone would pan something like the Skulls.

    The reason these zombies suck is because you know there's no creative drive behind it. It's there because some asshole at Konami said "People hate us. What do people like? Throw zombies in there!"

    So if Kojima is gone shouldn't you be jumping up and down for joy that maybe without him now they can go back to its roots? Honestly I think they should sell it off. Clearly Konami has no interest in maintaining their image or properties. I doubt Activision or EA could do it any worse... unless they turned it into an FPS.

    MGS was rushed out the door before it was finished because Konami wanted to hurry up and get rid of Kojima.

    The reasons it's good when Kojima does it is because you know he's going to make it engaging and have some sore of creativity to it. This is just Konami shoving zombies in there because they know people like zombies.

    Dude the skulls in 5 sucked and felt really shoehorned in the series. People have criticized the game for this already so i dont know ehre your getting the "its only ok when kijima did it" from. And for the record, MGS 5 sucked! The story was terrible, a lot of the things that made the series what is it was stripped away, and the only thing it really had going for it was the gameplay.

    Well if that's the Konami's idea to redeem themselves, then they better commit a mass suicide, because no one is looking forward for a continuation of Umbrella Corps.

    They get rid of Team Silent and Kojima Productions, they don't deserve for anything less than going bankrupt and with a bawl of rice left.

    So fuck them and fuck their shit.

    Maybe this is a joke, or an Easter egg, like that demon-slaying game in MGS3.

    How many people saying "Konami should/is go/going bankrupt!" realize that Konami isn't solely a video game company? They're not going to go away any time soon, they have other sources of profit.

    Yes, but if their video game departments consistently fail to make profit, they will eventually be sold off and shut down. If we can get them out of the games industry, that's a win for everyone.

    It looks like total western dumb american garbage! They're catering to the lowest, dumbest, mountain-dew drinking, nascar watching, spybox-1 playing, idiots who are the cancer of gammers. I bet the same people who liked Rising(the crap platinum made) will eat this shit up!

    I hope this shit bombs so hard that konami goes bankrupt and they have to prostitute themselves out to truckers just to have money for food, serves them right for doing this to mgs.

    Unfortunately that's why Resident Evil went that same route. The suits wanted the piece of the massive profit pie of the West shown by the likes of CoD and BF. So what do they do? Copy that and shoehorn it into well known IP's of theirs.
