Here is how I saw it working (using Solid Snake as an example). the Solid Snake page would be a disambiguation page that linked to the others. For each game there would be a corresponding character page for instance Solid Snake(MGS1) This would only deal with information from that game. This could be started by taking the current MGS section and making it into an article. On each page would be links to the previous and next pages.

This is various opinions/rants it's not official or anything so feel free to ignore it. But if I do something you disagree with check here before using my talk page. (PS I reserve the right to ignore any of this at any time.) eventually this will go on my home page.
- Articles should focus on the games and not on the real world facts. If there is not much information on the topic in game maybe it isn't relevant enough for an article.
- articles that don't mention any involvement in the metal gear universe deserve to be deleted.
- please don't leave comments in articles, it forces someone else to fix the article (and could be placed in the talk page instead).
- speculation should be discouraged especially in trivia sections (seems to be a magnet for …
