All characters in Metal Gear Solid V have 'lost something'

As many already know, 'race' and 'revenge' will be the main story themes in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. But another recurring theme will be the concept of loss: the phantom pain. This was explained on the Kojima Productions Alert 4, the official podcast of the studio.

This game looks like it's going to be as heartbreaking as MGS 3 was...

I also think Robin Atkin-Downes (Kaz) did an excellent job with his monologue in the beginning of the red band trailer.

"Skull Face losing his face, Quiet losing her voice.", Kazuhira Miller loosing both eyes, his right arm and left leg, Punished Snake (not Big Boss) loosing his left arm.

Playstation fans lost sth too: the exclusivity of this game, the upper hand in graphics, and the trust for Kojima (at least in loyalty, honesty and money contentment).

I trust Kojima. More people get to enjoy MGS. How is that a bad thing?

Their original voice-over actors?

I'm kidding! Looking forward to this.

someone is always losing something in a mgs game. nothing new.

Someone, somewhere is always always being an unwelcome downer. Nothing new.

My goodness, you've even managed to bore yourself! Astounding!

Since I cant make out wtf is going in any MGS game. I guess it wont affect me. I'll just play and go through the motions. I like some, not all the game mechanics. I find it entertaining, but even if there was 1 billion dollars in front of me, I couldn't tell you ANYTHING about the story.

I'm sure part 5 will be good.

Salooh2001d ago

This may help you a little bit.

You play as big boss in this game in 1984 and he was in MGS3(1964) and Peace walker(1974) .

Solid snake in MGS1-2 and 4 .

From what i understand Solid snake is a clone and/or son of big boss.

MilkMan2001d ago

Sorry man, I'm even more confused now.
Thanks anyway. I still like the games.
(I had a legitimate chuckle after reading your post)

MGS5 happens after MGS3, but before MGS1, 2, and 4.

Mind = Blown!

Kiefer Sutherland will voice the false "Big Boss"
And who is the "false big boss"?
Frank Jaeger aka Gray Fox, Big Boss most trusted lieutenant.
MGS5 is like MGS2 you only play the real hero in the prologue chapter.
This is Game of the year material, I cant wait for it!
I see what u did there Kojima-sama.

Lol, get out with that conspiracy theory. It's already been debunked a couple of times.

Salooh2001d ago

Lol , you are overreacting. You may hate the change but it's a reasonable act from kojima , if he didn't do this then the game wouldn't evolve, No emotional faces means we stuck at current generation tech. Then people will complain no enovation ..

I could gather all the facepalm memes on the internet and place them in one gigantic picture, but even that wouldn't be enough to express how I feel about this Gray Fox theory I've been hearing.

Whoever came up with that crazy theory should play all the games from start to finish again, especially the Portable Ops.

Let me get this clear: he's the Big Boss, the one and only. "Punished Snake" is what Kojima wants to call him in this game, since he suffers the decisions he had made in the past, paying the ultimate price as he loses all he's got. He's not Solidus, not another no name clone, not Frank Jeager, not Decoy Octopus, definitely not my grandpa or yours.

He's the friggin' Naked Snake, at his 50. No big surprises here, sorry.
