    Do Metal Gear Solid fans hate Raiden?

    At one E3, I remember fans booing Raiden and cheering when they saw Snake. How do the Metal Gear fans on PSU feel about Raiden? And do Metal Gear fans hate Raiden because they're jealous of his hotness? (Last question is a joke)

    The poll needs a 3rd option for those who feel neither love nor hate. The only thing I didn't like about Raiden was that I wasn't controlling Snake.

    There should be a 3rd option that says "Disliked in MGS2; Loved in MGS4".

    I personally didn't mind the change up in MGS2.

    But I thought MGS4-Raiden was badass!

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Raiden is a good character now, but it's just that he'll never be as good as Snake. Revengeance still looks cool as hell.

    I think Raiden is actually Hideo Kojima's favorite character in the series.

    Anyways, I don't hate Raiden. Although I did like him more in Metal Gear Solid 2 than 4, I feel like all of the complaining people did with Raiden back then might have influenced Hideo Kojima's decision to turn the guy into the stereotypical brooding, cryptic badass that we see in Metal Gear Solid 4 and Revengeance.

    I don't hate him, at all. He deliberatly had that unknowing, slightly childish/snobby attitude which would get him a lot of hate but I thought he fit in well in MGS2 for the purpose he was serving. Obviously in MGS4 he was a motherfucking beast, so..yeah

    I actually think Raiden is cool, but you didn't have to make me pick the option saying he's sexy... I'm not that kind of guy. He is girly at times though, his suit in MGS2 was terrible, but he was still a good character. A lot of MGS fans hate Raiden because he isn't Snake.

    It's sort of a love/hate relationship..hated him in MGS2, loved him in MGS4 because he grew a pair. I mean when you confuse someone for a girl (mgs2) and fap to them and then find out it's really a guy by the Arsenal level..then it's kinda $#@!ed up.

    Honestly, never liked him. Thought he was lame in mgs2 and in mgs4, he basically goes into beast mode but it felt forced. He had some major cool scenes, but still didn't think much of him even with all his over the top craziness.

    Yeah exactly lol. Metal Gear Solid 2 started off with a bang and then come to find out you're not playing as Snake for more than a half hour at most for the entire game.

    It was a let down. So i can see why there is some angst towards Raiden but i think he's a cool character either way.

    Yes. He's a wussy subhuman with massively feminine overtones who does not compare very favorably to Solid Snake.

    He was never meant to be another Solid Snake though. In one of the Metal Gear Saga volumes, Hideo Kojima said that he wanted to have a main character that appealed more to female gamers.

    A guy can think another guy is sexy without being attracted to him. It's just like another woman may think another woman pretty without being attracted to her. But I think I understand, guys may not express it like that.

    Yes.

    He absolutely ruined MSG2 for me.

    He's too effeminate for me to take seriously, his character is annoyingly whiny, and even in MGS4, when he supposedly became bad-ass, I still found it to come off as 'trying too hard'.


    On the question of attractiveness. You are right, men generally don't express it the way women might regarding the looks of the same gender.

    However, if you asked men the question of 'who would they rather look like', I'm thinking most would say Snake actually. I would at least.

    The hate comes from MGS2. I like him as a robot ninja now.

    I actually liked his character except his cheesy ass $#@!ing lines. I didn't cringe because he was a $#@! but because he was a $#@!wad.

    I don't hate him, think his kinda cool and I dare say worth having his own game but they shouldn't name it MGS but MG Raiden.
