This may not matter to a lot of you, but for MGS4 fans like myself, the idiots who still go for a Big Boss playthrough every six months, this is big news! Finally, finally it appears as though Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is going to get the trophy treatment on PS3.
It’s hard to explain why this matters without getting gushy, but I’ll give it my best shot.
Metal Gear Solid 4 is good for a single playthrough. It really is. But, like almost every MGS game before, it truly rewards those who replay it. It’s a game that rewards players who tug and pull at the fabric of its mechanics. It’s one of the few games that is sturdy enough to withstand the prodding of curious players. Therefore a new set of challenges, for trophies, if they’re creative enough, could really make the game worth playing again. For me at least.
I’ll be going for playthrough number five, that’s for sure.
