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." (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3)

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

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.

This is good. Isn't it?

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

From what was happening on screen or from your fingers hurting from mashing the controller so hard?
Welshy  +   722d 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
NotSoSilentBob  +   721d 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.

Big boss death ;(

The one thing I've never understood is if Big Boss was really a bad guy or what. I've played Metal Gear (MSX) but I still don't really know.

For me it's the moment when Liquid threw Big Boss's Pix in the fire. The way it's screened with Eva seeing all her life fail so miserably in such a short moment had me tearing up.

Of course that goes without saying the "WTF!!!" moment that passed through my head when I saw Big Boss at the end of the credits and learned it was Solidus Snake's body.
