Video: Is MGS5 still good if you're rubbish at stealth?

Hush puppy.

I have always been perfectly awful at stealth games. Even as a child playing hide and seek, in fact; I was the kid who instantly needed a wee as soon as they found their hiding spot. Now that I'm a grown man, little has changed - except maybe my bladder capacity. I'm not sure. It's been a while since I last played hide and seek.

Anyway what I'm trying to say is that before I picked up Metal Gear Solid 5, I spent some time deliberating over whether I'd actually enjoy it or not, considering my innate awfulness at stealth games. As it turns out I'm not the worst at being Big Boss, but my enjoyment of the game still comes with a couple of caveats. I explain a bit more in the video below, which also features some spectacular failures to avoid detection. Enjoy!
