I'm playing my first ever one of these games thanks to Wilkins. 5th one and on PC.

Couple of thoughts after playing an hour
-this opening is super long, brutal, and weird
-i didn't realize these games had fantasy/sci-fi
-i was bummed when Snake was going to get a makeover so I got to create a custom character. The surgeon who was going to give you the new identity immediately gets killed after you pick a new face and before he can do it.

About 3 hours into V and I feel they are throwing so much stuff at you.
Missions
Side Missions
Mother base
Recruiting
R&D
Upgrades
Base expansion
Horse/Helicopter updates.
Etc

This game is waaaaay deeper than I thought it would be. I thought linear levels like a Splinter Cell, but it's more open world.

I played another hour of this and I think I am calling it quits. I can't get into it. I think part of the reason is the desert setting where everything looks the same. Sorry Wilkins!

The game has a 95% on Metacritic so I know I'm wrong.

Eh happens. Some games just aren't run unless you're a fanboy of the series
