That said, posts like yours add nothing to the discussion at hand. I could say you're desperate to make people as happy about MGS as you are and my point would be as non-existent as yours. This a forum for people to discuss, if you don't like reading dissenting opinions go do something else or ignore my posts.
Who said anything about dissenting opinions? I agree, MS first party output isn't where most people (myself included!) want it to be. I just think you're bringing an unnecessary level of hostility and vitriol into things, is all.

You say your happy with their output, but sales/hype and gauged excitement would say your in the minority.
ReCore was pretty fun, but what I meant by ReCore tier (given the followup example of Ori...) was more small-ish experiences. ReCore being unpolished and unfinished doesn't invalidate the concept.

Basically agreed. I'm fine with leading with a CGI trailer to build hype and set the tone/expectations, but you really ought to have a gameplay segment waiting in the wings. Certainly don't do it if you aren't totally sure there'll BE gameplay. *Looks at Phantom Dust remake*
