They could fill in the 20 year gap between PW and MG1, or go post MGS4, perhaps with an entirely new character. It would be a shame if the only Metal Gear post 4 is Revengeance, they need to do a proper one.
Also I really doubt they'll bring back Solid Snake. His story is over now, as of the end of MGS4 he has months to live.
They should remake Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 : solid snake ( Not MGS! ) pretty sure i've said this before but i don't care because i want it to happen so bad!
I hope this doesn't end badly.
Yikes, it's strange to see how long this series has gone on for given how much Kojima himself has tried to kill it off.
Really... With how MGS 4 was wrapped up, I really don't want to see another Metal Gear game that has to do with Snake.
Fucking Kojima, This is how awesome game series turn to shit.
"Next" Metal Gear Solid you say?
I hope they can get a hold of Nic Cage for the voiceovers
Maybe that'll be what they'll tackle now? The teaser image on the Kojima site obviously points to hounds.
I don't think it'll have Big Boss in it, since didn't he die after the credits in MGS4?
""That's "good" to hear""
Actually, I wont consider it canon. MGS4 was the last in the story, and its gonna stay like that for me.
I have to say that we've looked into the life of Big Boss as much as we can, what's left for him? Playing from his point of view in metal gear 1 and 2, getting lit on fire by your son wouldn't be the best gameplay.
Solid snake has decided to live out his years in peace.
Raiden gets his own game.
Boss, it better fucking star the boss, how cool would that be, maybe you could also play as the other cobras.
Also, having played MG1 and two, they werent really that good, MG1 was shit. And MG2 was just very poorly done, for Odin's sake you fought Grey Fox (The fight that everyone in MGS raves about) by punching him in the face as he ran around a small room filled with landmines. Yeah, that would transition to 3D great.
MGS3 barely starred any characters from the other games and yet it was an awesome game.
Except if by "snake" you mean naked snake in case my bad.
You could remake MG1 and 2 instead. And it would surely be better than what you said.
IMO, they could star Big Boss (somehow, but not likely), Solid Snake (if a remake from past games) or The Boss (back before Snake Eater, but I don't know how well would people embrace it)
Everyone is missing the fact that it's Metal Gear Solid and thus related to Snake in some way. MGS3 was because it's how Big Boss founded the Patriots and got EVA as a surrogate mother for Les Enfants Terribles.
I think they should just start a completely new series. Complete with new characters, plot, story and everything.
The main reason games like Final Fantasy have stayed fresh for so long (no matter how bad the recent games have been) is because even if every single one of them may be just a copy of each other in terms gameplay, they all have a completely new lore, with small exceptions.
We already know everything that matters about the Metal Gear universe. What is there left anymore? Forced plot twists?
Sweet there hiring for an environment artist! Oh wait i would have to move to japan wouldn't I?
Kojima permanently ended his story, its only raiden or big boss now, and for them, only prequels, or possibly the boss if only in a WW2 scenario.
Booth #1914, it's clearly set during the Great War.
The patriots kill Franz Ferdinand.
And it's not obvious. At all. I thought the 15 part analysis kinda implied that.
There are god knows how many articles that come to the same conclusion, the latter link pretty much confirming everything discussed as the author conducted an interview with Kojima who pretty much said "yeah that's what happened." You can't look at all the evidence and just say "nah not enough people agree with it so it must not be true."
campaign play as the boss, co-op sidemissions that fill in whatever the boss didn't do with 4 players as the cobras (sorrow could be the briefer/debriefer considering he doesn't really have that many defining character traits)
2) I was exaggerating.
3) Why not just present the latter link in the first place? It was the quote from Kojima I needed - despite that evidence I'm still a little dubious on the matter though.
The only quotes from Kojima are quite vague and I think the author might have been hearing what he wanted to hear, I still don't consider it solid evidence.
One game I'd definitely be interested in would be one where you play as Raiden before and during MGS4.
Fighting Vamp while Snake is keeping the gekko at bay with the railgun would be awesome.
I hope they do well with a new MGS production. It really did piss me off that they practically abandoned Metal Gear Rising's initial purpose which was going to tell Raiden's story from MGS2 to MGS4 if I am correct. I mean there was this gap in the story in which they were going to explain to us how all this stuff happened.
