It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute gameplay presentation garnered a lot of praise and showed that the best is yet to come.

But the enthusiasm hasn't stopped there. In a recent update on the official MGSV website, various filmmakers, actors, and producers offered their thoughts on the recent trailer. And of course, they were just as excited about it as we were.

For instance, Guillermo Del Toro (director of Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, and Pacific Rim) spoke very highly of the piece of media that was shown at E3.

"Kojima-San remains a massive inspiration for me and METAL GEAR continues to deliver the edgy, vital, jaw-dropping world and feel that we have come to expect but it pushes the envelope every single time. It is a window into the future of the medium and its breathless narrative and artistic expansion. Amazing!"

Following Del Toro's praise was that of Danish filmmaker Nicholas Winding Refn - who directed Valhalla Rising, Drive, and Only God Forgives (this movie was great and I will fight anyone who disagrees). Refn in particular has a great friendship with Kojima, and even visited during production meetings in the UK.

"The trailers for Metal Gear Solid V, prove once again that Hideo Kojima is a master at portraying a wider and more complex view of human nature combined with breathtaking action sequences.", said Refn. "A daring and bold move from one of the founders of the future of technology. With Metal Gear Solid V, Hideo Kojima has created the perfect marriage of cinematic storytelling and cutting edge gaming technology. For me, it all culminates into one word: Genius."

These were just a couple examples of the enthusiasm that came from filmmakers. Other talent such as Chan Wook Park (Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, and Stoker), Norman Reedus (Daryl from The Walking Dead) and the producer of the film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, Avi Arad, also weighed in and showed optimism and excitement for MGSV and the future of the Video Game medium.

What do you think, MGS fans? This sound like too much hyperbole, or are these guys right on the money? In any case, it's pretty exciting to see such talented filmmakers offer their thoughts on one of E3's most talked about games.

Modders are having so much fun with Ground Zeroes
