The Moral Conflict of Ground Zeroes, or: The Springsteen Analogy

In this opinion piece, writer Zack Wheat, a longtime fan of the Metal Gear franchise, looks back upon the darker tone of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V and questions Hideo Kojima's ability to make it all work.

I have to say the trailer didn't really bother me at all. Maybe I'm just a phycho sadist but I love stories about war that don't pull any punches. This is a game that doesn't seem to be glorifying the savage nature if war. Before we go saiyan this game's too dark let's not forget MG's never really been very light.

MGS-Man gets arm hacked off, Woman gets viciously shot several times by a woman who enjoys it, woman dies caughing up blood as the man in love with her watches, implied rape, torture scene, man eaten by crows.
MGS2-Man shot in face, terrorism from tortured soldiers, child soldiers, turture/suffocation, dude gets eye gouged out by broken glass, murdered innocent girl, stachatory(sp?) rape, sex with boyfriend's daughter, blood drinking and self mutilation.
MGS3-Implied rape, turture (knife and beating this time), eye shot out, kidnapping, manipulated into killing good guys, nuke strike,
MGS4-Suicide, mutilated cyborg man, man shot in face, cannicalism, family murder, rape, cancer death.

Hell, even Rising had organ harvesting...FROM CHILDREN!

If people don't like dark things why is Game of Thrones so popular?

MGS5 looks really promissing and glad its more realistic and darker this time around.
