20 Best Cutscenes In The Metal Gear Solid Franchise

These cutscenes from Hideo Kojima's beloved game series are... pretty good!

Konami

Metal Gear Solid remains one of the most beloved gaming franchises of all time. Its final chapter, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, was released back in 2015. Since then, fans have been clamouring for another addition to the series, but with game creator Hideo Kojima’s banishment from Konami, all hope for a new game is lost (and no, Metal Gear Survive does not count).

However, there is much buzz around a rumour detailing a potential buyout of the Metal Gear IP by Sony. It is unclear whether there is any truth to the hearsay at the time of writing, but we can always hope…

Besides the fantastic stealth gameplay and memorable characters, Metal Gear’s style is what sells. It can be camp, cheesy, but always memorable. Kojima’s flare for paying homage to various movies in his games is present throughout the game’s history. Many people criticise Metal Gear Solid for being too cutscene-heavy. For other players, this is what makes the game utterly unique. Nobody does it better.
