What The Hell Happened To Metal Gear’s Story After Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater?

More and more throughout the years, video games have been growing as a stronger and more efficient medium of storytelling, and while there are several games that can be credited for making important strides in that respect, the one name that comes to mind more than most is Metal Gear Solid.

I'm not understanding this article. This is a prequel. Buy the collection and play them in story order. This one takes place before the MG series on NES.

You mean Metal Gear on MSX

The originals were on MSX not Nintendo, those weren’t even made by Kojima.

gamingbolt... Metal Gear Solid is one of the few game series where I actually cared what happened and what people had to say. Most games are so far behind in terms of story its hard to even compare them.

Deep-throat182d ago

There is something I really like about the stories in MGS games: Kojima's crazy plot twists. That's why I defend the ending of MGS5, even though the game is unfinished.

"Because, of course, this led to the birth of the ultimate deus ex machina, the one we all know as “nanomachines”,"

Nanomachines were first Mentioned in MGS(1998) not MGS4...

"The one thing that simply cannot be defended or explained away, though, is the mother of all retcons. You all know what I’m talking about- the infamous twist at the end of The Phantom Pain. The reveal that the guy we spent the entire game playing as – Venom Snake – was not the real Big Boss. He was just a body double- literally just “some guy”."

This I do agree with though, you're telling me that the legendary soldier is not any better than a medic?

MGS5 was a shitty MGS game.

exactly, why i prefer Ground Zero to Phantom Pain, Ground Zero should have been the game direction, instead they changed it to Phantopm Pain open world rinse and repeat * the gameplay and fredom was great, but to lose everything else? Great villans and heroes, great story telling? hell no, and i will be honest playing no named nobody triggerd me so much, i wanted to play my hero, i love 1 & 3, 4 and Peace walker

and what happen to my codec convos :( i miss that

Even MGS2 was great. Even though you play as Raiden in that one. But it was still a great game and felt like a normal MGS game.

"Nanomachines were first Mentioned in MGS(1998) not MGS4..."

While that's true, if you are looking at it from the story-telling perspective, he's technically not wrong. MGS3 took place BEFORE MGS1. So technically MGS3 did lead to the birth of nano-machines.

They may have been present in MGS1, but MGS3 shows the birth of them.

Well yeah becuase MGS3 is a prequel to the whole Metal Gear saga.

MGS4 just wrapped up the story, and did a materful job.

Best game in the series imo.
