As we all know, MGS4 shows the death of Big Boss.

The end of MGS4 has Big Boss propped up against a tombstone with Solid Snake (his clone) standing before him.

Big Boss drops a cigar out of his mouth, Solid Snake picks it up for him. Then as Big Boss is passing to the next world he says “This is good… Isn’t it?”


Now I haven’t looked up what Hideo Kojima’s metaphor or meaning was behind these final words. But I get the sense that Big Boss was saying that in death he had finally found peace. Yet he has a question mark at the end, which means, he really loved some mother fucking war!

Metal Gear Solid is beyond epic.

    As much as MGS 4 bugs me as an ending to such a great series…. and how it seem to avoid being a game at times….

    This scene was excellent. A highlight of the series that truly made the entire game worth it.

    And I say that as someone who thinks big boss showing up out of left field just to make some reveals and die again was somewhat of a mistake.

    But to see solid and big boss have this final moment…. it was epic indeed.
