* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts: The CQC system has expanded to support some rifles, shotguns and other long arms in addition to handguns. Because of this, Snake holds his knife in his off-hand while holding the weapon to facilitate CQC moves. However, some who have proper martial arts experience and training believe that this gun-knife combination in reality is flawed; It is very uncomfortable to hold and aim a weapon in the way Snake does, not to mention that it restricts the dexterity of the knife hand while performing actions like reloading, opening doors, etc. A more in-depth analysis can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAovwsxsQ8w here.]]

** The cardboard box with "No place for Hideo" written on it [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain was a lot more prophetic than it should have been.]]

** If you didn't gasp out loud when [[spoiler: Psycho Mantis]] returned to torment you one last time, you certainly did when [[spoiler: The Sorrow]] dropped in to save you.


Added DiffLines:

** Two for the price of one: [[spoiler: Psycho Mantis]] returns from the grave to torment you, and the equally dead [[spoiler: The Sorrow]] returns in the same scene to put him down once and for all.

* EightPointEight: Combined with CriticalDissonance. The game received spectacular scores; however, a number of reviewers mentioned they ''would'' have given ''Metal Gear Solid 4'' a perfect score if not for those [[StoryToGameplayRatio long cutscenes]]. Of course, for most fans who have grown emotionally attached to the characters and followed the storyline throughout the series, long {{cutscene}}s aren't necessarily a bad thing. In retrospect, the dissonance now works in reverse; the game has received considerable HypeBacklash in the years following its release and now has a sizable hatedom, in contrast with its positive critical impressions.

** [[spoiler:When ''Outer Haven'' first rises from the ocean, we get a shot of "Mount Snakemore": a reproduction of Mount Rushmore built into Haven's hull, with the likenesses of Big Boss and his clones in place of Washington and company.]] It appears on-screen for all of three seconds, after which it is never seen or mentioned again.

** Having it turn out that Liquid's spirit was [[spoiler: DeadAllAlong, with Ocelot cutting off his arm and only pretending to still be possessed via nanomachines and hypnotherapy]]. Some fans consider it an AuthorsSavingThrow for one of the franchise's most ludicrous plot twists, while others think it cheapened the conflict between Snake and Liquid by [[spoiler: having him be exorcised offscreen and be forced to fight a cheap imitation throughout the game]].
