GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: After the credits rolled, I still had a ton of questions. And with all of the drama at Konami, it’s likely we may never get the answers. Yet I can’t help but ponder these mysteries out loud. These are the five biggest questions I had after beating The Phantom Pain.

I hope kojima at least tells his fans what was cut from the game story/content, I'm going to assume he won't though, he's probably glad to be finally finished with it

"What happened to mother base?"

Pretty sure Big Boss and his Diamond Dogs moved to Outer Heaven soon afterwards. Then it eventually became MGS2's Big Shell

JoakimMogren1180d ago

if you played mgs2 then you would know that big shell was made after the tanker incident,that nission at the beginning of the game

There's something I don't quite understand, maybe someone can help me. MAJOR SPOILERS!!!
So Big Boss just wanted around in perfect condition for 9 years on a hunch that our character would come to? Seems like a waste of a decade of Big Bosses life to me if I understand everything correctly.

Maybe he just wanted to 'walk the Earth'. You know, like Caine in Kung Fu: walk from place to place, meet people, get into adventures. /s

LOL he must've come and visit medic on a daily basis and be like "hows he looking doc?" and DR replies "Good good... But I dont think he'll ever talk again though..."

And why did he wake up with the Bosses voice ha.

That's something that I didn't get either. It's somewhat implied that Big Boss just sat in the hospital for the whole time, which makes no sense because he's literally drawn to war. It's something that made him similar to Solid Snake. They're both drawn to conflict, the difference was that Snake fought for a good cause while BB fought for the hell of it. I can't believe that BB would just sit in a hospital for 9 years just to watch over a random guy who /might/ wake up so they can fulfill some really obscure plan.

I'd love the twist more if it was just a ruse while BB was out doing stuff. But it all feels so haphazardly thrown together I have a hard time believing this game has been in development for so long.

I came to see Big Boss become evil, not see some random medic pretend to be Big Boss.

Big boss was in a coma as well. Listen to the truth tape where zero visits him in hospital.
