Hideo Kojima, war fetishist, conspiracy theorist, and creator of Metal Gear Solid AND increasingly complex narratives that don’t-quite-pay-off, sits with IGN to talk about his eight favorite cutscenes from the Metal Gear Solid franchise, of which there are roughly 74 hours of. Tough to narrow down to just eight, I know. Here’s what the man had to say:
MY personal favorite is from what I consider to be the best entry in the series so far, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, when Ocelot & Snake meet for the first time. Not only do you get to see Snake’s badass CQC up close but he also inadvertently gives birth to Revolver Ocelot, a character who’ll dog him (ed.note: ocelot him?) throughout the series.
