Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Snake's showing his age, but he isn't slowing down anytime soon

Familiar characters are also expected to turn up, including would-be love interest Meryl Silverburgh (apparently not dead)andblond prettyboy Raiden, who has the distinction of being the single most hated character in the franchise (although Kojima swears he'll be likeable this time around.) Don't get too excited, though. This one won't be out till it's ready, and battlefield veterans are betting on a 2007 debut.
