World peace was a farce


Kojima weeps gently

It pains me to report that, no, all Metal Gear Solid V players did not cast aside their nuclear arms in pursuit of world peace. We have been hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray, run amok, and flat-out deceived.

Earlier this summer, the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid V finally realized Hideo Kojima's ultimate goal as every player disarmed their nukes and world peace was achieved. It was peace on a smaller scale because PS3 doesn't have the player count of PC or PS4, but it's a start. For every nuke to be disarmed is a feat no matter the platform.

Konami had to rain on our parade. As Kotaku reports, Konami confirmed that the "All nukes destroyed" cutscene was triggered because of a trickster:

The Banksy of video game hackers has been caught and banned. Gandhi -- the one in Civ, not the real one -- would be beaming with pride. We've achieved nothing.

It's not like 2020 is overflowing with feel-good stories. Konami, couldn't you just let us have this one? Ignorance is bliss, what you don't know can't hurt you, etc. Never, not even for just a few short minutes, have Metal Gear Solid V players lived in peaceful harmony. It'll almost certainly stay that way forever.
