Fantastic end to the series, Drew really kicked ass in A Quiet Exit, did it way faster than I did!

This has been my favourite thing on Giant Bomb for the last year and a half, so its really sad to see it end, but as someone who knew nothing about Metal Gear before I watched Episode 1 of Metal Gear Scanlon, I'm now totally converted and finally understand what everyone has been raving about all these years!

Thanks Dan and Drew!

What a season. I'll sorely miss watching Drew and Dan roll through the enigmas that are the Metal Gear games. o7

"Henceforth, my dear philosophers, let us be on guard against the dangerous old conceptual fiction that posited a 'pure, will-less, painless, timeless knowing subject'; let us guard against the snares of such contradictory concepts as 'pure reason,' 'absolute spirituality,' 'knowledge in itself': these always demand that we should think of an eye that is completely unthinkable, an eye turned in no particular direction, in which the active and interpreting forces, through which alone seeing becomes seeing something, are supposed to be lacking; these always demand of the eye an absurdity and a nonsense. There is only a perspective seeing, only a perspective 'knowing'; and the more affects we allow to speak about one thing, the more eyes, different eyes, we can use to observe one thing, the more complete will our 'concept' of this thing, our 'objectivity', be. But to eliminate the will altogether, to suspend each and every affect, supposing we were capable of this--what would that mean but to castrate the intellect?--"

While I will not lie that I fell off MGScanlon a bit into 5 (because I though 5 was pants) i'm sad to see it end :) looking forward to see what Drew and Dan cook up next... while Banjo Kazooie would be funny I would rather see something random... like a JRPG or something :P

While 5 wasn't my favorite game, overall I loved the MGScanlon series. So many fun moments watching Dan fanboy over MGS and Drew freaking out whenever something didn't go as planned. Gonna miss this series :D

I tapped out near the beginning of Metal Gear Scanlon 3, but it's been impressive seeing you guys actually follow through on doing the entire numbered series. Good work. o7

Love Dan but still surprises me how little help he provided throughout V. Not knowing to follow the footsteps up to the tree for Quiet, and telling Drew that the cutscenes in the early hospital scenes are the same were pretty inaccurate in this one alone.

Does this help?

The "o" is someone's head and the "7" is the hand saluting. o7

I can see why Kojima paraphrased that. Maybe he could've stuffed it in a Codetalker tape.

I ended up playing through the MGS series when I first started watching Drew and Dan play through MGS1. What a bizarre, fantastic, important, amazing game series that is. And thank you Drew, Dan and Jason for creating such a great video series!

@beef_melody: Sorry, that's not the quote that was paraphrased paraphrased; bit it is, however, the same idea within Nietzsche's philosophy discussed elsewhere than where the quote in the game is taken from. It gives some insight to the idea.

The actual non-paraphrased quote isn't all that different, but I'm not really a fan of the paraphrased quote because it makes the idea seem more garish than it actually is.

"Against that positivism which stops before phenomena, saying "there are only facts", I should say: no, it is precisely facts that do not exist, only interpretations. . . ." - Friedrich Nietzsche. Published posthumously; taken from his notes written in 1888.

I am going to miss this. This has been my favorite thing on Giant Bomb for so long, probably since the Patrick and Ryan Chrono Trigger endurance run. It has been great reliving my favorite series this way.

The best part of the Paz reveal is that her hospital room doesn't even exist. That door just goes outside.
