Bisexual Villains of “Metal Gear Solid” Franchise

Lezgetreal: Hideo Kojima‘s Metal Gear Solid franchise is known for many things. It was the first series to center its gameplay around stealth, rather than combat, and features one of the most ludicrously convoluted stories we’ve ever encountered. Even so, MGS is perhaps best known for its huge cast of colorful characters, several of which are confirmed to be members of the LGBT community. What makes this remarkable is how the series handles sexuality, not restricting a character’s personality to reflect sexual stereotypes. Mix this with Kojima’s tendency to write some of the coolest, most original villains in gaming, and the results are rather ‘shocking’ (you’ll hate us for that pun later). (Culture, Metal Gear Solid)
