Metal Gear Solid IV: Guns of the Patriots
As a franchise, Metal Gear Solid is just as known for its unexpected and controversial game endings as it is for its tactical espionage action. And while you could really opt for any entry, Metal Gear Solid IV’s unexpected appearance of legendary solider Big Boss – who had been previously thought dead – was remarkably pulled off as a post-credits scene of sorts.
After finally ridding the world of the underground organisation known as the patriots and taking down your evil twin brother’s arm (still with me?), Solid Snake attempts suicide before being greeted by his genetic clone father for the first time. After finally understanding his reason for living, learning that their presence together will finally kill Big Boss, Snake reconciles with himself to enjoy what remains of his shortened lifespan.
