Metal Gear Solid is an incredible franchise, and I thought that with the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it would be fitting to take a look at what people contributed to each instalment. One of the first things that is apparent, is that these are Hideo Kojima games as he's been a producer, writer, and director for every major entry in the series. This makes fact that he’s leaving Konami even sadder.
