Also I don't believe in a million years that the 'heads' of multi million companies really believes it comes down to a popularity test at the end of the day.
Plus there is no such thing as a second rep in a level, the stage is a mix of 2 niether 1 is greater then the other.
Also to new gamers which is the current generation of gamers they don't even know who he is and if they do they know him as 'old snake' so I wouldn't say he was originally thee best choice outta snake n raiden
MGR wasnt made by the same people who made MGS. It was infact I beleive the guys who made vanquish.
Either way I would enjoy another LBP stage as long as its based more on the second game and contains more dynamic hazards.
Mgr was originally scripted and constructed by konjami (< how ever it was spelt) productions and they f'd up so Hideo gave the script to platinum games (same peeps as vanquish) and it was managed by Hideo (so the 2 studios were mixed).
Uniquely with konjami productions they don't own anything metal gear licensed niether does platinum games.... It is hideo konjami the inventor that owns the characters. So in the end it comes down to him what character he wants in a game.
Well, one thing I can imagine is a stage where you fight on top of Huge Spaceship, similar to SSBM's Corneria stage. You're leaving Avalonia and are being attacked by the Negativitron's forces amidst the brawl. Second stage, you find yourself in the mountains of Nepal in Uncharted 2, where a Mi-35 helicopter now becomes the hazard. Eventually, just like the Patapon tribe destorying Hades and Kulche destroying Metal Gear RAY, the helicopter gets destroyed by H.O.N.E.Y. Cannons piloted by Sackbots.
Mostly just wanna see that helicopter idea implemented somewhere.
