Exactly. I think there was a lot of people just not ready for the introduction of a new character. Raiden's role hadn't been really fleshed out yet and everyone was thinking he was too much of a wimp compared to Snake. Funny how so much was wrapped up in 4. I'm excited to see where Ground Zeroes takes us.
