Why the hate towards Raiden?

48 replies 453 views Edited Oct 8, 2012
Yes I know, literally EVERYONE wants Snake, but why is everybody hating on Raiden? Now if I'm not mistaken, people didn't like Raiden on MGS2, however, when he made appearances on MGS4, a majority of people's jaws dropped when they saw how much of a badass he became. (Especially during the scene when he fought all of the Gecko and Vamp the first time. Don't deny it...) It came to the point where people BEGGED Hideo Kojima to make a Metal Gear game just for Raiden. Not only are we getting Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, (which looks awesome by the way), but they are also putting him in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and everyone's complaining about it? Here is the reason why Snake isn't in PlayStation All-Stars.

To be blunt, Hideo Kojima begged the developer of Super Smash Bros. to put Solid Snake in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but they couldn't because the roster was full, so they guaranteed Snake a spot in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Now think rationally; if he begged them to put him in Super Smash Bros., why would he do the same thing for a completely new game that just happens to be the same genre as Super Smash Bros.? Since Snake is in Super Smash Bros., it makes perfect sense to have Raiden in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

He is a perfectly worthy character, because if he wasn't, why would hundreds of thousands of people beg for a spin-off of the Metal Gear series just for Raiden?

Enough said...

I don't hate him. It's just that Snake deserves more the spot. It's like if in the next Smash there's Luigi but not Mario. Luigi is good, but Mario is Mario.

 

Also, his inclusion stinks a lot like an advertise thing, and that sucks.

 

Anyway is not even remotely bad as Donte.

Yeah but when you see things like "Raiden isn't worthy to be in this game" or even one of the threads saying Sackboy is more worthy than Raiden (Not saying Sackboy sucks), it makes you think otherwise. All of the characters have an honest and equal spot on this game. (Except New Dante, who hasn't contributed to PlayStation yet, but even he plays like Old Dante...)

Dante is Dante, so he has contributed to playstation. A costume does not completely change a character. Slightly off topic, Why is Dante hated also, I like his new look.
