Will Akiba aka Johnny be the next Metal Gear Solid hero?

Just got done playing through Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots…again…love that game so.

Anyway, I just kept getting this feeling throughout my playthrough that Hideo Kojima was preparing us for a new hero, the obvious route would’ve of course have Raiden be the successor and at first you think that’s exactly where it’s going but Raiden (And I believe Kojima’s fully aware) seems to not resonate with fans the way he wanted them to, even with this new cyborg transformation and his “show” stealing performance — his fight with Vamp.

Enter Akiba, Akiba? (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Xbox 360)

I always thought it was weird that they were so focused on him as well. Akiba seems like he has some major role to play in the future. At least, that's what it seemed like they were going for.

I think he was the result of trying to tie everything up from the previous games. Sasaki was in MGS1 (physically) and 2 (voice only) and you get to see his dad (or was it granddad?) in MGS 3. So I highly doubt that Kojima's going to pull another MGS 2 with Johnny this time.

Kojima is gonna pull another MGS2.

Hope not.Easily one of my least favorite characters ever, in any game.

Hell Negative. Who wants to spend half a game sh%#*^ in a barrel?
youndamie  +   440d ago
Lmao he was mad funny tho in MGS4.
Number-Nine  +   440d ago
please no.

I might be okay with that. Snake has had his time. And Raiden.... well... he's complicated.

The guy unleashed his s***pipe in the middle of battle. You cannot undo that and make him the star of a game...

Exactly. I was just about to say that no one wants to play a guy who diarrhea'd all over himself. If it was the fiery kind that makes it even worse.

Lmboo at all yall with the crap references...but that doesn't necessarily mean he can't morph into a hero, didn't Big Boss pee all over himself at one point?

Suddenly the Raiden reveal from MGS2 isn't looking so bad.

Jokes are supposed to be funny.

I hope not. I want everything that happened in MGS4 to be forgotten. That game almost ruined the franchise for me, but Phantom Pain looks set to be amazing again.
Number-Nine  +   440d ago
HA
360ICE  +   440d ago
Seeing how he was the star of all the other games, maybe?
KillrateOmega  +   440d ago
So we can sh*t ourselves in every level? I'll pass...

Horrible idea I hope not
I'd rather play a spinoff with Akiba than another mediocre game with Raiden in it.
trenso1  +   440d ago
no id rather not he was fun to use in MGO though not being affected by liquids SOP attacks and being able to lay down traps and find other ones was cool

Kojima once said the Boss would be a candidate for a metal gear solid game. That would be epic. Espionage in world war II.
