Top 11 Emotional Moments in Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid games are famous for heavily convoluted plot, dramatic sequences and some of the most amazing boss fights. But there is one more area where the series has excelled too. There have been many instances throughout the 20 year old history of the franchise where the player’s heart has been touch or got so driven by the moment that we actually started feeling a part of the game. (Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, PS2, PS3)

I have and always been the biggest fan of the series for over 12 years. I am still gaming due to a man called Solid Snake. Enough said.

Favourite moment is when Otacon cries...
Pick any game, he's contractually obligated to cry in all of them.

I'd put a spoiler warning in your post...

I always come back to Otacon talking to Sunny: "Snake...had a hard life."

That one.

I agree whole heartedly with the writer..

Yeah, this is a really good list. Which is very rare, because these types of lists usually vary a LOT compared to my own opinion. Maybe I would take out/add one or two, and change the order of a few, but overall, very good list.

*some spoilers for MGS4*

I agree completely with #1 (mainly the salute) and 2. The main thing I would change is that instead of number 3 (which was great and would be on my list somewhere), I would put in the end of MGS4 before the Big Boss part, where Otacon is talking to Sunny: "Snake had a hard life..." Such a sad moment.

I've been playing Metal Gear for almost all my life, these moments will also be apart of me.

Brilliant article overall, screens and videos....This is the ultimate 11 list. 11 is kinda odd but still pretty good!

MGS is just too epic for just 10. there were too many awesome moments in that franchise.
Valay  +   1479d ago
There are many memorable moments in the series.

#1 emotional experience : The fact that it's only on consoles.
Rashid Sayed  +   1479d ago
Thats incorrect. Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 : Substance were released on the PC and I think you can the classics MG and MG: Solid Snake on PC as well. Plus Metal gear Solid rising is coming on the ps3, 360 and THE PC :) enjoy!

The cut scenes!
MGS is just too EPIC. The cut scenes are some of the best in all of video gaming.

Please brother put the [S P O I L E R] tag in your comment, thanks.

Yes, I disagreed with you because of THAT.

I think that I speak for the most of us here, Metal Gear Solid is part of our lives in a way that no other game has, nor ever will..

Ps: excuse my english:(

Absolutely true, Metal Gear Solid is the game the truly got me into gaming. There is nothing that can hold a candle to this series. Halo? CoD? You're having a laugh. This is an experience that will leave an impact on your life.

The Boss's role in the MGS universe is soooo understated ... until
Peace Walker.

She was the first PERSON to go to outer space. Let alone a woman.
mistajeff  +   1479d ago
Those tapes that eva sends in Peace Walker are amazing
CobraKai  +   1479d ago
I agree
She was such a tragic character, and to be used the way she was, was so sad. After playing Peace Walker I played MGS3 again and it made the ending even more emotional.
C L O U D  +   1479d ago
Theres way to many to be my favourite!

I think I'm gonna hook the PS2 back up and play some Metal Gear Solid games during the summer.

mgs will be a part of our lives.
i felt more sad than when i finished harry potter 7. When i finished mgs 3 i actually stood up and did a solider salute. When i finished mgs 4, i couldn't help but leak a tear or two. There is no shame in admitting this game makes us cry. We will miss you
Takoulya  +   1476d ago
Are you kidding me? All I felt after reading The Deathly Hallows was anger. I read all the books to end up with that pathetic excuse of an ending. Utter BS.
BannedForNineYears  +   1479d ago
I stayed up as late as I could trying to beat MGS 2. >_<
So far, it's definitely my favorite PS2 game.
I could tell the end of MGS4 would have been really sad if I had played through all the MG/MGS games before I played it.
cygnuszero  +   1479d ago
MGS4 was terrible, but there were some strong emotional moments in the previous MGS games, the best being the end of 3.
BannedForNineYears  +   1479d ago
Takoulya  +   1476d ago
I'm sorry, and I'm going to let you finish, but MGS4 is one of the best video games of all time... of all time!
