Metal Gear Solid 4 and the theme of Dehumanization

‘Dehumanization’ is one of the most important themes of Metal Gear Solid 4. The game takes place in a depersonalizing world where the borders between a single centralized decision making System and society are starting to blur together. What is the role of the individual in a tight, well oiled machine? Is there even a free will left for human beings as single entities? This article seeks to find the instances where the theme of 'dehumanization' is brought forward in the game. (Culture, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection, PS3)

I knew MGS 4 are full of interesting and complex themes about human. And this articles gave some new perspective for me about how human lost their identity because of their own rules and system. Great articles btw and keep up the good job ^^

Thanks a lot! This is just one way of looking at the game, there's a lot more. But I'm glad to hear it gave you a new perspective!
