Bringing a sword to a gunfight never felt so good

9. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (2014)

[EN-US] The final trailer "cut" by Hideo Kojima himself! - [RISING]

  • Developer: Platinum Games
  • Genre: Action
  • Themes: Action ninja-ing and cyborg swordplay

A collaboration from Platinum Games and Kojima Productions, this game shines as a prime example of what a katana in the hands of a 3-D cyborg ninja can look like.

Mainly flashing lights and scattered body parts.

Taking the role of  Raiden, you find out that you should have never tried to sneak in previous games, as your main ability is to slice through human and robots as if they were butter. The story is quite heavy with the usual Kojima themes, so you’re going to be hearing a lot about war torn economies and dystopias, just before resuming the action in a world where all the cool kids are wearing cyborg suits and killing each other with futuristic katanas.

That’s not how physics work, but who cares?

But if something shines through the most, it has to be the precision cutting aspect of the game: you can slow time and choose just how you want to bissect any and all solid things in the world. So you can choose to spend your time chopping body parts or reenacting Fruit Ninja with a random watermelon, and you’ll still play for hours on end.

Boss fights.

Gaming and writing, enough said.
