I keep seeing photosets for women in video games, but for Metal Gear it’s always the Boss, and that makes me sad because as incredible as the Boss is, there’s so many other great female characters in the Metal Gear franchise.
So here’s a collection of most of them(I realize I don’t have Para-Medic of all people T__T), and since these are all official and (almost) icon-sized, feel free to grab any of them.
From left to right:
- Mei Ling
- Meryl Silverburgh
- Sniper Wolf
- The Boss
- Nastasha Romanenko
- Naomi Hunter
- Olga Gurlukovich
- Emma Emmerich
- Screaming Mantis/Screaming Beauty
- Crying Wolf/Crying Beauty
- Raging Raven/Raging Beauty
- Laughing Octopus/Laughing Beauty
- Courtney Collins
- Paz Ortega Andrade/Pacifica Ocean
- Sunny Gurlukovich/Sunny Emmerich
Metal gear solid obviously has its issues, but it’s the war game with the most diverse cast of women that i know, honestly.
Women who are clever, women who are not, woman who are strong, women who are weak, disabled women, sick, addicted women. Women who don’t shave, who don’t care, who don’t cry, who cry a lot. Women who are feminine, women who are masculine. women who are scarred and proud.
Women in love, and women who don’t show interest in romance. Funny women, scary women. Black, asian women, middle eastern women. Women who are mothers, daughters, wives, but not just that. Women who are faithful to others and women who are selfish. Women who die for their own cause. Women who are manipulated and women who manipulate. Women who are ripped.
And girls!!!! Girls who change the world!! Meryl had only just turned 18 on her first mission. Mei Ling was an expert in aerial photography and air intelligence at MIT before she even turned 18!! Don’t even get me started on Sunny and Emma…
This is one of the things that really let me enjoy this game. Yes, their treatment is super problematic along the games, and sometimes I want to rip my hair at how bad they are handled. But they’re here. And one of them is ready to starve for weeks to shoot you AND poison you at the same time three blocks away. Especially if you’re a dude. Bc fuck dudes, tbh.
i see a lot of people are confused about who this is:
this is Chisato Moritaka, aka Chisato Eguchi. she was a japanese idol and is still a singer today. she writes most of her songs and does most of the drums in her music as well.
there is no one expecting dick to taste good though. i’ve never ever once met a cis dude paranoid about his genitals tasting weird or salty or sweaty or whatever. but of course pussy has to taste like fruit and whatever. OF COURSE.
Real talk tho
he just got slapped with kimchi i cant handle this
#he praises women to the high heavens in his music and y’all still don’t believe that he loved us#imma start a campaign called bi not gay#and another called pale not white#just for him (tags by @stankface, not me)
#white ppl just can’t accept that their precious white gay fav is actually an indian bi man and would slap you in the face if you thought oth#*otherwise#ppl praise british music for being the best but ignore that freddie brought his indian roots into it
