Guess The Keyword For Metal Gear Solid V


Hideo Kojima has posed a question to Metal Gear Solid fans, asking them to guess a keyword associated with Metal Gear Solid V. On Twitter, Kojima writes:



“Gene” refers to Metal Gear Solid’s emphasis on genetics. “Meme” refers to Metal Gear Solid 2 exploring what you can do outside of genetics to shape someone, as in Raiden’s case. We’re not entirely certain about the “Scene” and “Sense” keywords associated with MGS3 and MGS4, but “Peace” for Peace Walker is self-evident.


So, what is the keyword for Metal Gear Solid V? Kojima won’t say yet, but he says it’s not “Love” or “Hope” or “Fate”.




Take your best guess! You can re-watch the GDC trailer for The Phantom Pain here, but keep in mind that The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are two separate games that both make up Metal Gear Solid V.
