GamingBolt's Rashid Sayed speculates on the appearance of Solid Snake in The Phantom Pain and why Kojima needs to close Solid Snake and Big Boss' story arc before he leaves Konami.
It'll end with Kojima waking up, the MGS series being a dream, and a third person section where Kojima kicks every desk in the Konami office over. When he reaches the lobby he gets in a cab and the game fades to black. Fin.
Sorry, but Kojima got Chrisbenoited.
He got McMahon
You mean the guy who murdered his family then hanged himself? I was a Benoit fan.

Like I've said if they do a MGS2 twist and the second half of the game is a time jump where it's basically a remake of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 then I will f****** loose it. MGS2 showed you Snake during all the promotional videos and screens to release yet you played as Raiden for the majority of the game. Same could be done here.
I'm really expecting it since all they have shown outside of clips from the hospital is Afghanistan and Africa. It'll be an awesome twist, just like MGS 2 when they lead to believe Snake is dead. I'm hoping Kojima pulls out all the tops for some mind blowing twist and turns, an MGS4 for the Naked Snake story line.
The final battle would be a recreation of Snake's battle in Outer Heaven with Big Boss, but from Big Boss's perspective. That would be the perfect way to end the game.
There been a lot of high hopes for something like this to go down and what better way, right? That would be the most epic send off!
WTF? It's a prequel, it happens way before Metal Gear Solid 4 does. At the end of Metal Gear Solid 4, they are both old and walking together.
You're pretty good. /s OT: I think it unwise to go in expecting certain things to happen. I think Fox has a good mentality on it: Kojima has shown he is willing to "go there", and considering this is the end, I can see that happening. With respect I think the author is making the mistake of... trying to put Kojima in a box. I think some people might be setting themselves up for disappointment if you EXPECT 'x' to happen. I expected Eva to come running back to Snake(or him finding her) in both Portable Ops and Peace Walker and I have no one to blame but myself. Now I didn't walk away empty handed in that aspect, but man did it hurt. ;) I am very eager to see what's in this game, and where Kojima takes it.
Whatever, but this article is saying that the game will jump to the events after Metal Gear Solid 4, and have an old Solid Snake kill Big Boss. I guess after they walked together, old solid snake decides to bust out a weapon and kill him. Or Big Boss asks him to finish it or something like that.
@Lightning Old Snake didn't fight Big Boss in MGS4. The article is obviously talking about Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2.
How is Solid Snake gonna take down big boss at the end of MGS5? Take down? Like kill? We know how this ends, MGS4 takes place after MGS1 and MGS2 and Big Boss is still alive and he's walking with Solid Snake who is now old. So he didn't take him down, he's still alive all the way up to the end of MGS4 And MGS5 is a prequel to all these games, so "NO" there is no way that MGS5 ends with snake taking down big boss. Why is that so hard to understand? So I don't know what the fuck this article is talking about.
Metal Gear is the one in which Solid Snake "kills" Big Boss. That's well before the events you are mistaken about, though I feel you are feigning ignorance on this.
Great read. I had lost hope in hayter being im TPP, however after reading this, it kind of sparked my hope a little more. Just 19 more days
We have already seen the real ending of the saga - it's the final exchange in Metal Gear Solid 4 The Guns of the Patriot.
"This is good, isn't it..." -Big Boss, final words
Yes... Yes...yes...I wept uncontrollably... As the father and son soundtrack ran in the background.... Its more than good,epic....its good...it is( thats what I answered..I hate you one2thr#9 now I have to go and watch that part.....
What if we would actually play as Cipher aka Major Zero for the rest of the game?!
Your konami employee,aren't you?
No, I'm not. I'm just a bloke around the block. :p
Excellent read, I was thinking the same thing about this they could remake the metal gear games in the phantom pain, might be the big seacret there all talking about. Also could be why they cancelled that fan made remake some time back. Its starting to make sense now I hope this dose happen I will be so happy, ive wanted a remake of those games since I was a little boy playing mgs1 in 1998 👍
There is just too much ground to cover to reach a point in which Big Boss would actually confront a young rookie Solid Snake in battle. This game would have to portray all the atrocities that Big Boss committed and his true goals and intentions of non stop war, genocide, torture, use of children as child soldiers, nuclear deterrents etc. It's about time Kojima shows Big Boss' true self.
I feel mgs3 set us up enough to explain why bb turned bad but will be cool to see him go full villain
Solid read, this guy knows what's he talking about.
Would be pretty cool to end it that way. Goodness, I can't wait to see how crazy this story is going to be.
It would be also be a good F*** you to konami. If Kojima ends MGSV with Big boss getting killed by snake, there's nothing else they can do. He's finally finished the story completely. I wouldn't be surprised if he even made the game go a little further into history than he intended, just so it could end this way, even if it wasn't his original intention.
Regardles,, I just know this Metal Gear is going to be Solid
Hideo Kojima, Joakim Mogren and the head transplant doctor appear at the end and Kojima says "Did you rike it?"
