Okay, fellow Tropers.

Could one of you please dumb down 'World of Cardboard' Speech for me?

Because having read the page several times, I still don't get it. Why is this a trope? It just seems like "Hero Gets Even More Determined and Says So Dramatically". Am I missing something? Fuck, even the Laconic version isn't helping.

Everyone go and do this so I can stamp tropes all over you.

So I'm sippin' my morning tea (yes, I know it's 1:30, long story) and reading TV Tropes. As you do. I stumble upon What Could Have Been, which is a collection of what some of your favorites stories might have been before circumstances or Executive Meddling forced a change.

And I find this:


Okay, I'd heard the MGS4 one before (though the staff mutiny is news to me and frankly fucking awesome), but MGS2?! Oh my god, I know the game's ending had to be changed because of the Too Soon, but there is.... there is so much awesome right there. And not just my wee slasher heart going "HAL AND DAVE, BOYS, ILU~" but Snake actually having a decent disguise, the even more mindfucky "Is Rose Real?" thing, and the Hudson Bridge thing (not shown here, go look at the entry)?

I love MGS2, don't get me wrong. It and MGS3 are my absolute favorite games of all time (except Okami, but even Kojima is powerless against that masterpiece). But I wanna go to the Alternate Universe where that was MGS2. Some of those ideas are so epic, I'm pissed they aren't canon. This is the first time I wished TVT did cite their sources because maaaaan. I want more info.

lol staff mutiny, haha Kojima, you twatwaffle

So I'm on TV Tropes, right:

Lucy: What, really? :INSTANTLY DIVES FOR HER COPY OF X2: Oh my god, That Troper is right.
Mum: :after passively watching her daughter dive for the DVD cabinet in the middle of Countdown: What the hell was that?
Lucy: TVT's Estrogen Brigade page says Dayter is on the commentary for X2!
Mum: :with a look like It's not worth it to ask: Okay. :goes back to reading:

WHAT? I really kinda like David Hayter. He's like... And here you'll see just how much of a Troper I'm becoming. He's like an Inverted Promoted Fanboy because he became a fan of MGS through his voicework on it. Also, he wrote the screenplay for the goddamn Watchmen, okay? A screenplay that apparently Moore even gave his blessing to (as much as he can give his blessing to a movie adaptation of something he never wanted adapted).

Also, before I even knew he was a screenwriter, let alone the guy who did the first two X-Men movies, I liked X1 and X2, but hated X3. OBVIOUSLY I WOULD HAVE LIKED X3 IF HE WROTE THAT ONE TOO. I bet you he wouldn't have killed Scott. I liked that Jerkass.

Bweeee, Dayter, ilu, you crazy fanboy. ♥ But if Watchmen doesn't kick seven kinds of ass, you better believe I'm gonna hunt you down and re-enact the MGS1 torture scene on your ass.
