Raiden, brought to us by Yoji Shinkawa.
To this day I still wish that Raiden had been a woman, in part because it always felt liked a missed opportunity to create a good female protagonist in an industry that still suffers from a severe shortage of them over a decade after Metal Gear Solid 2, and in part because that’s how the art always looked (though his in-game model never exactly turned heads one way or another, he had such a bland face!). I guess I should be thankful since he was a bit humdrum much of the time. Anyways, all that aside, Sons of Liberty remains my favourite Metal Gear, and I’ve got a lot of great memories from playing that game. Except the quick time event at the end on highest difficulty.
Fuck you, Solidus. Seriously, go fuck yourself.
