In Metal Gear Solid 5, this shameless trend continued. After getting chased with a giant flying whale a unicorn, along with a child and escaping a hospital, the game sends you to rescue Kazuhira Miller, your second-in-command. Kaz has trademark aviator glasses, so you grab a set for him, before going out. It’s the Sort of adorable self-reference Metal Gear is known for, and it gets instantly ruined because the glasses have their own credits:
Had it have just been “Kaz’s Aviators,” then that may be chalked up to MGS‘s patented wackiness. Which it kind of does, but that is from the little font under the a lot more obvious “J.F. Rey Eyewear.” But if you’re going to get “adorable reference” along with your audience thinks, “Wait, is this a commercial? Is J.F. Rey a character I forgot about? It probably stands for Justice Fox Rey. Is Solid Snake likely to end up being Justice Fox this time? I should probably draw Justice Fox fucking Sonic the Hedgehog.”
It ends up J.F. Rey is your new choice for show creator Hideo Kojima. He and J.F. awakened to market glasses while making among the very feature-intensive video games in human history. It comes up a couple more times also, like in this scene, in which Revolver Ocelot is sporting a set that end up missing “cool” and landing squarely in “grandma coming back from the eye doctor.”
Really, movie game designer and sunglasses salesman’s fantasy team came up with both people mentioned — six trademark colors in complete and four which would have worn. Not all of them ended up in the match, probably because Kojima parted ways until he completed his vision. Presumably, if he had his way, there would have been a three-hour assignment during which Kaz and Ocelot try on different sunglasses, every sillier than the past, till they find the perfect pair!
It’s extra inappropriate in this particular game, although it inappropriate to discontinue an infiltration mission to pose for glamour shots. These aren’t “good men.” The sport is all about man’s slow descent into villainy. Human lives are cogs in a military industrial complex that will eventually grind us all into blood. Snake hides weapons and kills tens of thousands of guys. Kaz is warped by torture that he is made out of hate. And Ocelot’s favorite two items are shooting at torture and people. They represent men’s weakness and evil! So, children, purchase their colors?
