Warning: MGS5 story and ending spoilers throughout

To say that Metal Gear Solid 5 feels unfinished - whether that feeling is intentionally designed or not - is an understatement. Broken into two chapters and a prologue, MGS5: The Phantom Pain tells the story of Big Boss, the creation of his private military organization, Diamond Dogs, and their quest for revenge after the events of Ground Zeroes. It's a fine story, if perhaps a bit one-dimensional, but it ends abruptly. Something definitely feels like it's missing, and there's a group out of hardcore fans that are scouring the game for the smallest hint of closure.



Any other game in the world and players would have moved on from its disappointing conclusion. But this is Hideo Kojima we're talking about. Things are rarely this simple. That's why a group of intrepid die-hard fans have taken it upon themselves to solve what they think is Hideo Kojima's greatest puzzle: the existence of a final chapter to Metal Gear Solid 5. They meet in a newly formed subreddit, dubbed 'NeverBeGameOver' after the awkwardly translated phrase found on the back of Eli's jacket. Here, they mull over every single clue, connection, or gameplay quirk they can find, no matter how ridiculous the theory may sound.
