Stop Complaining, We Don't Know What The Phantom Pain Is Yet
During the VGAs, a trailer was shown for a title called "The Phantom Pain". Little is known about the title or it's developer, Moby Dick Games, but gamers have been throwing conspiracy theories ever since. Many have concluded that all of this is a teaser for the next game in the Metal Gear Solid franchise. For some reason, though, members of the gaming community have started to wave their "if it's MGS We Riot" signs. These are likely the same gamers who have been buying the same Call Of Duty, Madden, WWE, and Assassin's Creed games for years. If this does prove to be a title in the Metal Gear canon, then kudos to Konami for all of this. It has us talking about Metal Gear Solid without reference to Raiden or "Revengence" being attached. This also proves though, that fandom can and does suck every ounce of fun out of a room every time. Can we not just let Konami and Metal Gear fans have this. If you don't want a new MGS, then don't buy it. In all honesty, we don't know what "The Phantom Pain" is yet, but for me, it may be you flamewar inducing fans.
