Metal Gear Countdown: Top 5 Fight Scenes

The Metal Gear series is known for many things, one of them being fight scenes. Those can stand out for a number of reasons, ranging from great choreography and camerawork to importance to the story and symbolic nature. Below are the five fight scenes, and an explanation why each was chosen. (GameCube, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, PS2, PS3)

Old Snake vs Liquid-Ocelot by far. That scene recaps the entire series best part of mgs4 for me.

Yeah, that was very nicely done, with the music and life bars from the previous games, chronologically.

"Old Snake vs Liquid-Ocelot by far"


Big Boss V Young Ocelot when Snake is escorting Sokolov. When Ocelot stops him and(tries)to eject the bullet by hand (using a technique in the battlefield for the first time or something like that)That CQC was amazing.Not having that on your list is a Sin.

Although not a playable fight it is still one of my favourites. C'mon he wiped out an Ocelot unit while kicking Ocelots ass.

But was Ocelot actually trying? Not insinuating that Ocelot would be a match for Naked Snake. But given his actual mission, I like to think that things such as his gun jamming were done by Ocelot on purpose.

The second playthrough of MGS3 I started thinking things like *that.

Why reply first before reading the article if I may ask?
Number-Nine  +   972d ago
I wanted to see if my favorites matched with their favorites before I read the article. I skimmed through the title and misread it...oops!

I really liked the Naked Snake vs Young Ocelot fight. I was especially surprised that he managed to learn a few things about CQC from the previous scuffles with Snake.

i think i would swap out the resistance fight with that. epic fight scene on the plane.
pbasson  +   972d ago
I Disagree, this game series is too epic to make a top 5. That is insult to the series. I mean what about the fight The End, theres more than one way to do it. What about MGS4 Vamp Vs Raiden, that was crazy epic. I mean what about the fight with Grey Fox and you cant shoot him. Basically there cant be 5 when every fight is epic.
Nyxus  +   972d ago
Of course there are many more great ones, but this top 5 isn't meant as an absolute truth or something. Just see it as a way to think about the best fight scenes, and to put these five into the spotlight.

I am not a big fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, but I really liked the last boss fight in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots, it was somehow special.

You guys are all wrong, The best fight scene is Johnny's fight against diarrhea.

End story.


Def Old snake vs Liquid Ocelot, but Psycho Mantis fight blew my mind when i was young.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   972d ago
Gray Fox vs Rex

But I did like the Liquid Ocelot vs Old Snake flashback to when Ocelot fought Snake in MGS3. That was pretty awesome.
