Here’s Why Quiet Is So Naked in MGSV [Spoilers]

Quiet has been in the center of the media for quite some time as the hype leading up to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain built to a fever pitch. Her odd choice of apparel made everyone wonder what the heck Kojima was thinking, but he swore up and down that it had a very good reason. Even going so far as to say that we would feel ashamed once we found out why.

Wait seriously? That's the best they could come up with?

poppinslops1331d ago

Legitimately dumb... I mean, I'm no biologist, but I'm pretty sure people breath with their lungs - not with their skin condition.

Seriously, what happens to her when it rains?
What if she works up a sweat?
Does she drown?

Knowing Kojima, it's probably just his idea of an excuse for her to strip... 'genius'.

Not to mention the effect such a 'condition' would have on her hygeine... poor thing probably reeks.

KurtRussell1331d ago

She would be red like a lobster on that sun. Plus the skin peeling off would be a really sexy combination.

BG115791331d ago

@poppinslops, she's like a frog. Frogs also breathe through their skin.
So in a serie where you have a cyber-ninja fighting an artificial vampire, giant atomic laughing robots, AI, clones, human beehives, where the strongest soldier was a great woman, why does this concept sound so strange?

kneon1332d ago

What a moronic excuse. Why can't they just admit that the real reason is to appeal more to teenage males.

Jaqen_Hghar1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

a man isn't a teenager and it appeals to him *commences ooogling*

NobleTeam3601332d ago

I'm 23 and it appeals to me, lol.

insomnium21331d ago

FFS it's all biology. If you have a penis you are more than likely interested in a naked woman no matter if it's a pixelated one.

I guess LESBIANS won't and can't be attracted to Quiet then...

I think it a reasonable explanation. And at least there is one.

frostypants1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

Reasonable? Are you kidding? It's the sort of thing someone makes up AFTER they decide they want a chick in a bikini running around in the game.

"Uh, guys, they're asking for a reason."

C' makes sense the same way that saying "she forgot to do her laundry" would make sense.

chrisx1332d ago

People who act suprised might have never played an MGS game before.Those who play the series know stuff like these happen all the time, its typical Kojima

frostypants1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

Yeah, it's his strange sense of humor. And his strange sense of humor is one of the things that has always made MGS difficult for me to get into.

Jaqen_Hghar1332d ago

a man thinks they've never played the "hold X to stare at EVA's boobs" cutscenes in MGS3

BG115791331d ago

And it's not the first time we see someone naked in the MG series...
Who did forget about Raiden in MG2? I wonder why wasn't any uproar because of him. No one said that Kojima was sexist toward man because of that...

ChrisW1331d ago (Edited 1331d ago )

Well... That's not the worst nor lamest excuse I've ever heard for something that doesn't need explaining.

OhMyGandhi1331d ago

I'd rather they say, "her cleavage is her vision, and she needs to make sure she can see."

showtimefolks1331d ago

I am as big of a fan of mgs as anyone but please stop it. Is that the reason that every scene she is in the camera focuses on her breasts and ass

Just admit it kojima she is half naked because that's the way we men see beautiful women and in games majority and I do mean vast majority of the times the women are presented as sex toys or sex appeal

Persistantthug1331d ago


So what's the problem?


paradigmfellow1331d ago

It still doesn't hide the fact that it promotes unrealistic standards of beauty.

insomnium21331d ago

I'm pretty sure there are douzens of women who fit her standards quite nicely. You don't seem to understand what the word unrealistic means do you.

bennissimo1331d ago

And she looks like Carl from the Walking Dead.

Hahahahahaha what in the actual living hell is this nonsense? THAT'S the big reveal? Dumbest explanation I've ever seen.

joab7771332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

May not be a huge reveal but it makes sense.

NarooN1331d ago

Makes sense only in the bizzaro world of MGS, lol. The explanation is pretty stupid, but it's par for the course in the series.

mopground1332d ago

youve never played mgs?

ChrisW1331d ago

The only thing deadlier is cellophane...

idsanty1332d ago

I hate it when I think of cooler reasons for stuff than what developers confirm is real.

TheFirstClassic1332d ago

Yeah I thought it might actually be dark or meaningful.

crazychris41241332d ago

lol he was better off saying "I like boobies"

mechlord1331d ago

right? it would have been the end of it. Now, we will have to suffer weeks of all kinda articles about this "excuse".
No wonder DoA doesnt even bother with these...

why do we even need explanations for the obvious?
