Metal Gear Solid V Made Even More Erotic Thanks to Sexy Fan Art

For some reason, Metal Gear Solid V is erotic. Or sexy. Or something. But honestly, the game isn't sexy enough. Until now. Kept you waiting, huh?

DeviantArtist ZombieSandwich (aka Anne Pogoda) whipped up this "Big Quiet Boss XD", adding that she's "truthfully a big fan of this game" and created this "as a parody".

There are apparently reasons why MGSV character Quiet is so erotic or sexy.

    I guess MGS5 is going to be the next Dragon's Crown witch-hunt, isn't it?

    LOL!!

    On a serious note though, all those PC devs who came out and called the character design 'disgusting' etc. can go jump. Gaming is the last place I want creativity and expression dictated by political correctness.

    Also... this should be an unlockable outfit for Snake.

      Yeah. Creativity and expression. So long as character design panders only to teenage boys.

        To be fair, it's just this particular character that seems be to pander to teenage boys. Kojima has said that Raiden in MGS2 was designed to appeal to women, and he was designed by Shinkawa to be sexual eye candy with tight fitting clothing. He's also goes nude for a while, complete with spread eagled flip jumps. Not that that's very common at all, but at least they're more equal than most with their pandering.

          Yeah, and look at how he was recieved in MGS2 (and the entire game). Became a joke in MGS3. Was desperately trying to be cool in MGS4. Only in Revengeance did he redeem himself somewhat.

            Yeah, it wasn't particularly successful. But it was a sincere effort, and it says a lot that even after the backlash they received that they stuck with and developed the character. I have faith that there's an honest artistic vision behind all of the design decisions in this game, and whether or not it ends up being appropriate, I can appreciate that it's at least been thought out.

            On the topic of this fan art, I love it, and I love the entire hawkeye pose comparison series. I like sexy poses and I also like people making fun of them. I think I'd prefer to see a greater sexual pandering to all orientations rather than a curtailing of pandering in general.

              Actually no, the reason is a girl wrote to Kojima saying she loved MGS1, but in the future didn't want to play some old man. Then Raiden was created to pander to a market that shouldn't be pandered to. Regretted that decision but at least tried to fix the character. Although he got a whole lot worse before getting better. Artistic vision was ruined by the wrong audience. And 9/11.

                I've liked all of Raidens iterations. Thought he was awesome. I don't understand the hate.

                In the documentary that came with special edition MGS2 Kojima says that Raiden is designed to be almost ambiguous in gender, so that men and women could both see some of themselves in the character to draw them more into the game. It was supposed to be a move that helped people see Snake from the outside, to build him up more and have him become more of a legend. So the Raiden is really supposed to be the player, as opposed to when the player is supposed to be Snake.

                I had no problem with Raiden in that role in MGS2, it felt a bit over the top with him made to be all 'cool' in MGS4, but i guess he served the 'cyborg ninja' role and it was a pretty logical progression, especially in regards to him proving himself to Snake and also the fans of MGS.

        This is the problem with the discussion of this point.

        You, and quite a few in games media, are using language the preassumes that only "teenage boys" would like certain depictions, and not only that, that anyone else who *does* like it should feel ashamed.

        That's not discussing, that's dictating that a) females are only allowed to be depicted in group-think approved ways and b) if you disagree, you're either immature or a pervert, and your opinion should be discarded.

        There's nothing wrong with Quiet.

        There's nothing wrong with "sexy" characters.

        There IS something wrong with trying to force your own warped view of acceptability on others.

        Yeah. Creativity and expression. So long as it's made to please everyone single person on planet earth, who all have completely different and contradictory tastes.

        Oh wait.

          What's with all the assumptions? I don't like it when publishers force their developers do that. I don't like it when they CoD-ify their game to "appeal to a wider audience". So why you're getting angry when in a serious videogame I think that the women should be treated seriously as well?

            I'm not getting angry at all, I was just pointing out your statement is ridiculous.

            I'll ask you this: Why would it NOT be ok to have a game that caters to teenage boys and what they like? I've seen Barbie games, Bratz games, games that focus on Make up, Fashion Styling, Horse Riding etc which are all obviously aimed at young girls, are these not ok as well? They don't cater to me and my likes, so they shouldn't exist as they are too exclusive?

            I think it's fine to have games that cater towards certain audiences, it's not necessarily a bad thing, all games shouldn't have to try and cater to all different types of people, not to mention that it's physically impossible.

      What about "Whore of the Orient"? Or "Custer's Revenge"? There is a line.

        Whore of the Orient is an historically accurate nickname for the city of Shanghai. The place had a very bad reputation, hence where the term "to be Shanghaied" came from. I don't know if the same title on a book dealing with that period and setting would have raised the same controversy. Custers revenge is inexcusable.

        I believe there's a line, I just don't think inappropriate clothing crosses it.

      What is your attitude towards anime, feminine looking boys in Japanese games?

      Do you hate them?

    Hahhahaa, this is Brilliant.

    It takes a real MAN to pull this off, Big Boss, a badass in any outfit.

    Man I love all this controversial stuff (even if it does get really sad at times). Especially love it when people "defend" gaming by saying it's art and more competitive then any sports. But treating women like a person? Pfft, it's only a game, get over yourself. Games aren't supposed to be serious.

      What about making jokes about any subject at all? Fuhgeddaboudit!

    Now eyepatch and beard on Quiet please!

    Ok. Since this topic refuses to die, and everyone is content to argue about it. I really have to throw this out there.

    Am I the only one who doesn't find this character design to be even the least bit sexy?

    Don't get me wrong here. I'm all for free expression and creativity when it comes to making video games, movies etc. I have nothing against sexy characters in my games, and I've always enjoyed the designs in the Metal gear series. But if I saw an actual person dressed like that, with the g-string and torn stockings, it wouldn't make me think "ooh sexy", it'd make me think "eew, better steer clear of that, else I'll get the herps and my weinus will fall off".

      Honestly makes her look stupid. In the middle of a war in a sandy area? Stockings! They're easy to look after!

    Oh god stop putting ideas into Kojima's mind! We already had Raiden in a thong!

    Oh internet.

    Am I the one who has to bring out the favourite phrase of all feminists: 'false equivalence'. Besides there's already been plenty of scantily clad Snake and Raiden images ripped straight from the games, so this is hardly a new or shocking thing.

    Nevermind the fact that it changes the character into a cross dresser, which isn't what Quiet is. So yea, not the same.

    Now it's a male, people laugh at the joke and move on. Seriously though, Snake looks as confident and comfortable in himself as Quiet did so is there really a problem?

    Genuine question: What exactly does it take to sexualise and objectify a male? Most of the comments I see discount pretty much everything like shirtlessness, pantslessness, bulging crotch, exaggerated musculature, "pretty boy" features, and other things that the female equivalent we would normally associate with objectification of women.

      The problem is people keep using the term 'false equivalence' when it comes to this subject, but it's not exactly accurate.

      In their eyes having a shirtless male with bulging muscles who fights all day and drinks all night is perfectly acceptable and is not objectifying men at all, it's labelled as a 'male power fantasy' and thus 'falsely equivalent' to the 'sexualised' images of women and dismissed outright. Whereas it is in fact objectifying men, reducing them to little more than the some of their muscled parts, reducing them to boorish oafs who are only worth how many muscles they have.

      I have seen instances (such as the hawkeye posing like female super hero thing) which place males in similar poses/costumes as superhero women, but this is an example of 'false equivalence'. Some of the poses female superheroes are being drawn in are very over the top and exaggerated, and are designed to show off the female anatomy in an alluring way - to appeal to men - so when you place a male in the same position it is tantamount to changing their gender, or sexual orientation, so that they now appeal to men, instead of appealing to women. Basically it makes Hawkeye look like a gay man, who is trying to appeal to other men.

      It is a fact that women and men are attracted to each other for different reasons, so simply swapping the pose or costume doesn't take into account these differences and leads to 'false equivalence'. Men are exaggerated in different ways to appeal to the opposite sex, vice versa for women.

      So in this specific instance I would say having Big Boss/Snake rock around the desert shirtless, and rippling with muscles is an acceptable opposite to Quiet's attire, in that they are both dressed inappropriately for a battlefield in a way that emphasises their unique gender traits and appeal to the opposite sex.

      This of course doesn't take into account the fact that Quiet may posses some kind of skin camo, rendering all the rampant speculative opinions completely invalid.
