** Part of the reason why this troper loves the MGS series (and has since he first played [=MGS1=] in 2000) is that the game is full to the brim with easter eggs and moments that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall lean on the fourth wall]]. The most obvious has to go to Psycho Mantis, who talks about Konami games that you have on your memory card in the [=PS1=] version and Nintendo/Silicon Knights games on your memory card in The Twin Snakes, but there's so much more than just him! Like that if you call Mei Ling upwards of ten times and end your conversation by choosing not to save, she will stick your tongue out at you and refuse to save the next time you call her. She does the same thing if you run into the ladies' bathroom on the 1st floor basement of the Nuke Building, but more out of [[WhatTheHellPlayer disgust]] than annoyance. What's more, if you go into first person view in Otacon's lab after the Gray Fox fight, you can find a VideoGame/{{Policenauts}} poster and a [=PS1=]. It becomes a poster for Zone Of The Enders: The Second Runner and a Gamecube in The Twin Snakes. There's also Mario and Yoshi figurines in Otacon's lab in [=TTS=], and shooting the Mario figure gives you a 1up (it plays the jingle from getting a green mushroom in Super Mario Bros. and gives you a slight health boost), while shooting the Yoshi makes it emit the cheer sound from VideoGame/YoshisStory. Isn't that just the best thing ever?! [=MGS3=] doesn't skimp on the easter eggs either, and it's responsible for what I view as the series' CrowningMomentOfFunny. Two words: Croc Cap. Call up Zero, Para-Medic, Sigint and [=EVA=] while wearing it. Zero and Para-Medic will say that it looks cool, Sigint discusses the previous use of animal disguises in war (he says that in World War II, the [=OSS=] made its agents dress as cows and hide in German fields), while [=EVA=]starts laughing and snorting and telling Snake that he looks like a dork.

Despite the company coming under heavy fire in recent years, it still has a long history of game development that has helped remind people why they enjoyed their work in the first place, and are waiting for them to return to their former glory.

** You kiddin' me?! MGSV sucked ''because'' of Konami! (Seriously, who cuts out an ''entire mission'' vital to the campaign?!!)

In spite of certain controversial happenings in 2015 and 2016, Creator/{{Konami}} games past and present still have their fans.

** Try to forget the whole debacle for a moment and let's just look at ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' as a game on its own. Is it good? ''Hell yes!'' If there's a good swan song for the good Konami, this game is definitely it.
