Yeah you can tell the extent of Kojimmy's hollywood poisoning on its portrayal of russians in these games.
A russian Hind-D in MGS1 being in an American military base to serve as a boss fight for no reason.
The enemy soldiers in MGS2 are russian despite both the tanker and the plant being american property located in fucking NYC.
MGS3 features soviets as enemies and has the KGB and GRU fighting each other in gunfights wtf? Also Volgin is by far the most deranged villain the series bar none and he happens to be soviet russian hmm curious.
PW Zadornov was a complete caricature but I'll give that a slight pass because everything in that game was absurd.
Granted, americans tend to serve as "bigger" badguys but that's always portrayed as a twist.were there any russians in MGS4? I kinda deleted that game from my mind
