[Dtoid community blogger Bory Borham goes way deep into the Metal Gear Solid universe with this write-up, and maybe even uncovers some secrets concerning the series' next iteration! Fascinating stuff! Oh, and be sure to check out Part 2 in our Community Blogs once you're done with this one! --Mr Andy Dixon]
Before we get started here, let me say that you are now entering spoiler city. If you haven't played every Metal Gear game and you don't want to be spoiled absolutely rotten, turn back now. Hell, depending on your definition of a spoiler, we may even learn more about Metal Gear Solid V than you are comfortable with. So yep... you've been warned.
Before we start, make sure you've watched the trailer for Ground Zeroes.
But wait a minute... MGSV!? When did we start using Roman numerals? And Ground Zeroes... like more than one zero? We'll get back to all of that later.
Anyway, enter our Mystery Man. He's a tall man, but his face is intentionally hidden from our view. When we eventually get glimpses of his face, it's all burnt up. If he's a new character in the Metal Gear universe, why bother hiding his face in the first place? Right? He is likely somebody we have already seen before.
Cue Tall, Dark, and Handsome (aka the Mystery Man):
Perhaps Ground Zeroes sees the AI Network start to become aware? Maybe JD needs more testing? The ever-growing power of this AI Network would surely put Zero at unease, if it didn't obey him. Is Zero the Vanzetti to Big Bosses Sacco? Are they both in urgent danger? Is the AI Network's first priority to clear away the Patriots, just like the Patriots' first priority was to clear away the Philosophers? History does always repeat itself in the Metal Gear world. Or do you think Zero himself is still in control and launching Big Boss into infamy to be hunted like a dog? My money is on Zero not being such a bad guy after all, but that's just me.
