Metal Gear Envisioned Gene Therapy’s Application to Soldiers
In the Metal Gear series, Kojima once again showcases his predictive prowess, this time centering on gene therapy’s application. Within the game’s context, gene therapy augments enemy soldiers through injections of “soldier genes” or DNA rearrangement, intensifying their aggression and alertness while compromising neck strength. This parallels the real-world imperfect nature of gene therapy, primarily used for medical purposes like rectifying genetic anomalies or producing beneficial proteins. This concept could potentially extend to military use, aiming to enhance combat capabilities through gene therapy’s potential adaptation.
