Kojima Teases Central Theme Of MGSV

Hideo Kojima has a question to ask you. It's probably impossible to answer; it's just a really frustrating tease.

And he's pretty good at teasing. We'll learn a lot more about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain next week at E3 but in fact, we'll get more info on June 6. That's well before Sony's press conference, by the way...and just a few days away besides.

A new Tweet from the MGS guru has gotten people talking:

"Question Gene(MGS1)→Meme(MGS2)→Scene(MGS3)→Sense(MGS4)→Peace(MGS PW)→???e(MGSV) Answer will be revealed in Pre-E3 on 6/6."

Obviously, he's talking about the underlying theme that we'll find in MGSV. He also reminds us of the themes of past entries:

"Theme of PW was PEACE. Paz/Kazu (both means peace) starred & was about deterrence as one of the method of keep peace in human society...(cont) The ending of PW was he/she's chosen deterrence in order to keep his/her mother-base. Theme of V is "???e". 2 characters in Kanji."

And:

"PW was about deterrence, & peace as theme. Story of MGS3 was about Cold War, &SCENE as theme. In MGSV will be about "??" & "???e" as theme."

Anybody have any grand ideas? We just want to see as much of MGSV as Kojima is willing to bring to E3. Chances are, we'll be far more interested in seeing some gameplay but hey, that theme is always central to each MGS story, so... Yeah, it's pretty important.

Life? Meh, my head hurts to try and think more complex themes. Whatever it is, it sure will be a spectacular theme.

To bad Kojima wasn't totally backing up Portable Ops, I would love to play that game in HD. I don't want to buy a PSP just to play that game.

Being on psp is not the bad thing....but the controls of that game are so bad >_<, wish it made it to the collection with improved control, the game is BETTER than Peacewalker also it has actually charismatic bosses some Peacewalker awfully lacked.

going off what weve seen so far, the hospital scene with the burned faces, and then the mock up producer in bandages mimicking a burned face, gotta go with something to do with fire, and also maybe something to do with living with losses.
be that physical, mental, or spiritual.
another one could be augmentation, what it means to be human, but that just does not seem to fit the style he likes to play.
