Solid Snake is not in this game. Shouldnt it just be Metal Gear?

the Solid doesnt just refer to Solid Snake, it also referred to the game's transition to 3D with Metal Gear Solid 1

Grand Theft AUTO is not about stealing cars anymore. But if GTA wasn't called GTA not as many people would buy it.

Same logic applies here.

Because Metal Gear Naked would have sent the wrong message.

The Solid in the title denotes that the game is in 3D, as opposed to the classic 2D "Metal Gear" games that starred Solid Snake.

Or would it send the best message?
An opinion doesn't mean much if you don't try to back it up.

Solid in the title also means 3D graphic
the first MGS is the first Metal Gear title using 3D technology.

MGS3 don't have solid snake in it and still called Metal Gear Solid
