In September of 2013, not long after the reveal of Metal Gear Solid V’s scantily-clad sniper, Quiet, director Hideo Kojima took to Twitter to talk about one of his latest creations.
When Hideo Kojima encouraged folks to cosplay as Quiet, the under-dressed "erotic" sniper in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid, do you think he expected dudes to throw their hat in the ring? I like to think so.
Phrases you see all the time on the back of video game boxes: "Blood and Gore," "Intense Violence," "Strong Language." The "Sexual Violence" content descriptor has only been used once before, back in 2006. This year, that infrequently used tag will be used to tell consumers some of what happens in Metal Gear Solid V.
Metal Gear Solid has never been a franchise that's lacked fan service when it comes to depicting attractive characters, but that doesn't mean the characters don't have a reason for looking the way they do.
