Did anyone even consider it to be a possibility?

If you haven't finished the game DO NOT OPEN THE SPOILER BOX AND LEAVE THIS THREAD IMMEDIATELY

I heard it was actually a change in the script? I think I would have enjoyed the original idea better. What we have now, as much as I like the character, is blatant fanservice and not genuine.

When you saw his name in the credits, did you think to yourself something like "That's weird, Big Boss wasn't in this game because he died from flaming hair spray 15 years ago and his body was burned on the Vol---OH SHIT"

I was an idiot for looking up the ending back when I didn't have a PS3 to play the game.


Anyone who managed to actually connect the dots and find out that the body wasn't solidus is a freakin' genius.

But fanservice is everywhere!

I can understand people's gripe at this scene but there's worse, haha.

I still don't understand why they didn't use cyborg parts for Big Boss rather than Solidus and Liquids remains. I also don't understand why they replaced every part of him except the missing eye.

Because Eva (Big Boss's former love interest) was in charge with the restoration of Big Boss's body, which meant that she must have wanted him to regain his former characteristics back, there was more to this choice than by just placing prosthetic limbs and a left eye, it's out of respect and also the relationship between the pair most likely made this choice preferable.

What I don't get is, they replace other parts of the body but not the injured eye into a cybernetic eye :P

He mentioned something interesting... Konami, they claim that what they're doing in Casinos are the missing piece... money, to surpass video games.

I had a feeling that Big Boss isn't dead and when I saw his name at the credits and the credits stopped on his name I was 100% sure.

Plot Twist: BB walks on screen, arms and legs start twitching. DBZ style fusion voice in action, Solidus and Liquid... "BROTHER!" (That is if we're staying true to how MGS2 was and how at the time of MGS2 it wasn't nano's, it was actually supposed to be Liquid inside Ocelot. Then in came the nano's.) I miss the good old days where the mystery behind those things was intriguing and not ruined by nanos. =[

lol. No I didn't anticipate something of that fashion to happen. I knew BB was going to be in the game, but I felt something was off when Solidus was killed in MGS4. (No I didn't notice the eye being the wrong one either, that was a sly move). But I also didn't expect BB to make a full-on appearance like that. it was a pleasant surprise given that the whole game was fanservice anyway.

The whole point is that if he did kill himself, he'd be no better than anyone else...and he is better than everyone else. But this is a ludicrous opinion, one that I've been crucified for.

no offence,but that is actually a pretty invalid argument because he DID mean to kill himself,his gun just jammed on him when he was about to.and how does allowing yourself to live a couple of more months and kill half the world in the process make you "better than everyone else"?


its true his nanos werent actually going to kill anybody(because of the newest version of foxdie that drebs injected on him) but he had no idea about it until big boss told him.


cant believe its been around 4 years since i last cleared the game while watching every cutscene and i still remember this.

No offense also, because how can you say his gun jammed? There was clearly a shot.

And nanos weren't going kill anyone...because FOXDIE isn't nanomachine based.

What? Why didn't he die!? Because he didn't shoot the gun while it was in his mouth :D I'm sorry, but the slide isn't the thing that makes the bang, it's the exchange of energy. Energy that has to go somewhere.

I've now seen this argument go two ways, he either shot the gun because Kojima is tricking the player or that he shot the gun while it was in his mouth but it didn't work.

Does no one think he just couldn't go through with it just yet? It's not the only bullet in the world and he hasn't got a minute to do it in.

There is no interpretation of how a gun fires.

I wasn't expecting it. Mostly because it didnt make sense to me how Big Boss was still alive (which does end up getting explained) but in the end it was a nice fan service. I enjoyed the epilogue.
