Backtrack: Saddest Moments of Metal Gear Solid 4

PSReveal.com: "Warning: This article contains Metal Gear Solid 4 spoilers.

Although Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots released four long years ago, revisiting it today will still produce plenty of emotional feelings. It was criticized by a good sum of reviewers for being more like a movie than a game, but is that necessarily a bad thing? We think not.

Here are some of the saddest and most emotional moments of Metal Gear Solid 4."

So many moments across the franchise, let alone MGS4.

The 2 moments that get me everytime *SPOILER ALERT* are Big Boss's death in the graveyard, where snake finally forgives him, gives him a hug and lights his cigar one last time ='(

and sunny asking otacon if she will ever see uncle snake again and otacon says "Snake... had a hard life... he needs some time to be alone" *wipes tears*

I can never state enough how iconic that franchise is, it's not your ordinary shooter, it's also a movie, a deep political message, a statement about war and humkind.

Metal Gear Solid is not just a game, it's an experience, and i cried at the end of MGS4 because i have been through everything Snake has since 1998 and seeing it come to a close is almost like an era of my life ending.

The above may sound OTT overly personal and prompt some "jeez, it's only a game comments"

But those who have played the games through the years start to finish will know exactly what i mean.

Oh my god yes. The moment with Sunny and Otacon had me tearing up. Such and amazing series.

The whole trilogy is sad lol. So much tragedy all around

morganfell1330d ago

Agreed. It really hit when I realized how much Ocelot had sacrificed. He gave not only his life but his identity. But above all that, for me the saddest moment was watching Big Boss die.

SageHonor1330d ago

This is good. Isn't it?

Omar911330d ago

the saddest moment for me is the microwave hall. I was seriously about to cry when I was playing through it

NotSoSilentBob1330d ago

From what was happening on screen or from your fingers hurting from mashing the controller so hard?

Welshy1330d ago

I almost smashed clean through my Dualshock mashing that button all blurry eyed too in the microwave hall.

No other game this gen can even touch MGS4 imo, until maybe MGS:Gz =P

NotSoSilentBob1330d ago

I do agree with most of your statement but I do think the end of Heavenly Sword/story overall is right up there next to MGSIV this gen.
