Re: Why the hate towards Raiden?

Oct 8, 2012

I don't hate Raiden as a character, I just hate that he's in this game. He doesn't belong here for a game about Playstations history. Most ppl like me could think of hundreds of other 1st / 3rd party characters that would represent the Playstation brand more then Raiden. To me Raiden is advertisement in this game just like Dino. I don't want to see him in here. 

 

I've never played MGS2 but I'm not seeing that Raiden being represented in this game, I'm seeing MGR Raiden in this game being represented. His game isn't even out yet -_-

 

Seriously though most people from what I hear hate Raiden because he was a crybaby, always talked about some girl, and was overall boring I heard. I'm not sure because once again I haven't played MGS2, but this is what I hear most of the time.

^Well, those people were stupid, and didn't get Raiden's significance in MGS2 at all (please excuse my rudeness).

Raiden was a child soldier. He had been fighting since he was a kid, and his reason for acting inexperienced was because he didn't want anyone to know who he really was. Okay, he had a scene where he had to run around naked, but he took on like 6 RAY units by himself (he didn't win, but still, it was awesome). The guy loved Rosemary, and their Codec moments were kind of funny to me.

IMO, Raiden was boss ever since I found out about his involvement in the Liberanian War (I think).

 

This is off-topic, of course.

Going by that logic deimos instead of Kratos should be in, clank instead of ratchet, elena instead of drake, and so on so forth. When you think MGS you think tactical espionage action and sneaking around not ninjas slicing stuff. Solid snake was in five metal gear games and big boss was in six mg games while Raiden was in two and only playable in one and in that game he is unanimously hated as the biggest bait and switch character of all time. This is just superbot having to bow down to companys wishes to put in characters. People want the face of the franchise in a game like this not an embarrassment from the past who some say got cooler because kojima gave him the gray fox treatment. Would you rather have luigi and falco instead of Mario and fox?

I think it's more to do with the fact that Snake/Big Boss isn't it. If they were, I don't think anyone would have a problem with Raiden, but when he's the sole representative of the MGS franchise, people get bummed. I don't blame them, but I would also say that Raiden is a really cool character, and looks to bring with him a very interesting move set.

Like people have said, it's not that Raiden is hated, it's just that he got it in over Snake, that's what people don't like, because Snake is the true all star of MGS and easily 100 times more deserving. Maybe Raiden will be an all star in the future, who knows, anything's possible. But right now, Snake is better, and for many people, always will be, so the fact we're getting Raiden over Snake is leaving a bitter taste in a lot of people's mouths.

This^^^

 

Most big MGS fans agree that Raiden was made cool in the fourth game just because of how much the fanbase hated him in MGS2.

Raiden is a badass.  And dont get me wrong I like Big Boss / Solid Snake as much as the next guy its just Raiden is a cool character so I don't mind him being in.
