Actually the idea Metal Gear is tonally inconsistent is a very, very common claim by people who dislike the franchise, and it is a complaint I personally do not like, since I do not view silly moments in a game in which the president is a clone with Doctor Octopus arms as tonally inconsistent.Zachary Amaranth said:I'm sorry, but you do understand that criticism of the lack of a consistent tone in no way indicates people wanted Metal Gear to be a gritty, realistic series, right? They just want the tone to be...consistent. A story can be silly and still be consistent in tone.Edl01 said:All this criticism of Kojima not being able to keep a consistent tone. But the thing is, Metal Gear isn't meant to be 100% gritty realism, it's always been a very silly over the top franchise. I mean I always see this website complaining about games trying too hard to be, "Realistic", so why is it such an issue when Metal Gear doesn't?
Also, all the criticism? You mean, all one people in the thread?
