In celebration of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, we decided to take a look back and see what made the Metal Gear series great. Having played every single Metal Gear title out there and being big fans of the series we look back and see what did make it great Was it the stealth? Yes, but it really would drag at times. Was it the story? Sort of, but as much fun as LA-LI-LU-LE-LO is to say the story does get confusing and tangled like a Kingdom Hearts plot . What always did stand out were the interesting and dynamic boss battles. The characters, their backstories and the actual battles themselves is what made them interesting. With that in mind here are the Top Ten Metal Gear Bosses. (Oh, and spoilers obviously)
10. Vamp – Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
OK, this one is sort of a cheat as it’s not really a boss fight…but it is. You’re not playing you’re watching but the events are still happening. To be fair, 99% of Metal Gear Solid 4 is watching cutscenes so it’s forgivable. Raiden vs. Vamp was one of the first videos a lot of people saw as a promotional teaser for Metal Gear Solid 4, and no matter how old it is, it’s always outstandingly badass to watch. Especially since this is where Raiden was transformed from a joke to one of the greatest fighters that ever existed. Seriously just watch the video below and tell me that it sucked. I dare you. It went on to show what to expect for the then upcoming game and it’s one of those rare moments that the hype was actually worth it.
