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?
