Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Plot Theories

The Metal Gear Solid franchise is one of the most decorated and revered in gaming. Scoring an average of 92+ on Metacritic, the franchise has continued to develop and change with each installment. Director Hideo Kojima is now building up the anticipation with the impending arrival of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes – set to serve as the prologue for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The narrative behind these two titles is extremely fascinating, especially with the certain plot theories that surround them. My intention is to explore some of these ideas and offer my own thoughts on them; in the process, discussing some of the conclusions I have drawn up, too. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I won't participate in any plot theoreries because
a) I want to go into this game completely fresh without expectations
b) Kojima will surprise us anyway with the most ridiculous things

This is the one series that I can not get enough of. I'm still waiting for a "the Boss" title set in WWII. I think that would be awesome. Honestly more awesome than getting more Big boss or solid snake. Don't get me wrong. Solid Snake is my all time favorite video game character but I think we can let him go.

I agree with you But I wanna see solid snake on next gen platforms

Honestly I want a remake of Metal "Gear" not "Solid" 1 and 2, if they want to continue to use snake or bb

I think it's more likely that we will see a remake of the first two Metal Gear titles.

@MGSZelda: Wait....WHAT?! I was just talking to my girlfriend about this! Is this "confirmed" to be in Kojima's future brain fart list (is he thinking about this or did he mention it)? I would love that! Or even a piece of DLC that is an episode or 2 involving this story lineup. The Boss is the best and I would LOVE to play as her! Knowing Kojima it wouldn't be a skin swap either!

I would like to see more Solid Snake though. Only in the form of a good remake or something where he is young like MG 1 and 2.We only got to see 2 games where he was young Metal Gear Solid Ghost Babel and MGS1 so it would still be nice to play as young Snake with David Hayter as his voice.
Nero says it pretty well: I want to see him on next gen platforms too. No octocamo either! Young Snake!

I like Big Boss too, sometimes even a bit better than Snake but I feel like alot of Solid's younger "Legacy" years have yet to be shown in HD which I need in my life!

I like Big Boss much more than Solid Snake so I'm happy that MGS:5 is about him.
ZombieKiller  +   250d ago
I can see why. I like both characters so much that I can't decide who is better honestly. They both have their strengths and awesomeness. I want to see more of young Snake though
