(Warning: Metal Gear series spoilers throughout.)
No game this generation has occupied my headspace quite like Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. I've spent many a late night poring over every trailer, gameplay video, and article I can find, obsessively scouring them for something - anything - that will reveal itself in some grand eureka moment. Something feels like it's missing, like we're not getting the full picture. Like The Phantom Pain is hiding a twist the likes of which we've never seen before. And as the swansong of master prankster Hideo Kojima, I would expect nothing less.
