Donna Burke has announced the winners of the Sins of the Father music video contest

Donna Burke has selected three Sins of the Father music videos as the winners of the contest. Last month fans could send in their own music videos using footage provided by Donna Burke, as well as any video material they could come up with. Today three winning videos were selected. On Facebook Donna wrote:

The winners have been chosen!! Sorry for the was so difficult. But I chose ones that moved me and showed Snake’s pain and story the best.

Furthermore, on Youtube she added:

I couldn’t decide- all of them were very strong. I judged on the editing, how shots matched the audio, and my performance

The winners will get a ‘personal video message from Donna’.

    Since she seems to be the go-to singer for MGS now, I’d like to hear her sing “The best is yet to come” and “Love theme”.

    • Invader_skoodge

      My girlfriend had a go at “The best is yet to come” Karaoke and let me tell you, Gaelic songs are no joke. It’s pretty had to sing and she’s Irish.

      • No Place For Hayter

        God I can just imagine trying to sing Gaelic…. yeah that would be hard, not something I’m going to try, lol.

        • Invader_skoodge

          Yeah…It’s a beautiful language but, I’m not even going to try. lol

  • Shalashaska Has Landed

    LOL I knew SneakingFox was gonna win. Hell, I knew before he even entered the contest lmao.

    It’s ironic too, because he actually said he doesn’t like Sins Of Father (which IMO, I don’t really care for either) and created a MGS4 parody of it, before he made his contestant video. I’m assuming seeing his other friends (TP, DevilFox, Kefta, etc) motivated him to create one. That guy is just a beast at what he does.

    EDIT: I just witnessed R Production’s video too. Good lord, that was fucking awesome. Kudos to all the winners.

  • kirtanloorii

    I need better video editing software…

  • Vegas

    The awesome thing about MGS is how people from voice-recording and music enjoy the game and making part of it. You see Troy Baker, David Hayter and even ol’ Kiefer saying things about the story that I don’t really imagine other voice actors saying about other games. Its just so interesting to see how this game makes even non-gamers enjoy it. Hell, even my gf gave a try xD

  • César H. Sandoval

    LOL the Hayter voiceovers… Poor Donna, She can’t show Kojima those now xD

    • Big_Boss88

      Haha yeah XD.

  • Venom_Big_Boss

    KefkaProduction’s video wasn’t one of the winners : O

    • No Place For Hayter

      Oh hey yeah, I forgot about KefkaProduction’s, though she was probably like “There is to much of me in this video and not enough visual flare in direct correlation with the lyrics”, the video itself saved all its visual flare on off lyrics sections and I see why with all the emotional yelling and all but I think she was looking for correlation with the lyrics sort of thing. For her it was probably trying to find more positives in one video over the other instead of trying to find any negatives considering her choices lol.

    • JohnaAKAJack

      I’m also surprised

    • Adamska

      I thought I was done crying after seeing the three videos. I was terrible wrong.

    • AdamskaRevolver

      Strange. This was best one in my opinion

    • Invader_skoodge

      Looking at the winners, it seems this video didn’t have enough MGS3 footage with The Boss that’s why it didn’t win. Which is sad because I would have guessed a little more creativity might have made it to the final

  • No Place For Hayter

    Nothing like chilling to some MGS fan music videos 🙂

    Not surprised in any way to see sneaking fox up there, he is the only one I actually know of enough to watch most of and remember the name, lol.

    Lol at Snake having two voices in one video, I can go with it but is was certainly weird lol.

    Sins of the Father is a song I like the more I hear it, it just keeps growing on me 🙂

    P.S. Love the game release countdown Nyxus 🙂

    P.P.S. I never realized how much Kojima loves to reference older scenes and games with visual similarities, most of the time making them very VERY similar, though I still miss it most the time.

  • David Collins

    I thought for sure Jose Mellinas was going to be one of the winners.

  • No Place For Hayter

    And now is the time we all ask ourselves “Why doesn’t any edition of the game come with the soundtrack?” I mean SERIOUSLY!?

    • kirtanloorii

      I really want that soundtrack. And the Behind the scenes documentary.

  • ElAlca

    Those are really good videos. At least I tried.

    • Adamska

      Hey, you made one? Link please.

      • ElAlca


    • Shalashaska

      keep going bud 😀 I’ve seen your stuff and it was brilliant 😀
      I made one too and was hoping to make more but my editing software keeps crashing on me so i cant make anymore videos until i fix that :'(

      • ElAlca

        Thanks, and hope you fix it!

  • Big_Boss88

    Wow soooo amazing videos, I love them :D. Gotta give some credit to everyone who participated in the contest and the winners :).
    Sins of the Father ftw!

  • Golgari

    This is amazing. Metal Gear community is the strongest community. So much passion and love for the franchise. I’m amazed.

  • Adamska

    Mission: Don’t cry and fight the feels.


    • No Place For Hayter

      Emotions have no place on the battlefield.

      • Adamska

        Otacon: I want to ask you. Do you think love can bloom even on a battlefield?
        Solid Snake: Yeah. I do. I think at any time, any place, people can fall in love with each other. But if you love someone, you have to be able to protect them.

        I falled in love with those videos. And I must protect them.

    • César H. Sandoval

      Adamska? What’s wrong?

      Anwser me! ADAMSSSKAAAAAAA!!

      • Adamska

        César, I’m ok. In fact was a Fission Mailed.

  • kirtanloorii

    Any US/NA people here know if we can preorder the Collectors Edition yet?

    • Silverius

      Nei, best bet is on Monday, Gamestop regional manager told me so, but Amazon i don’t know a thing.

      • kirtanloorii

        Great! Thanks. I intended to get it at Gamestop anyways, so this is perfect for me.

    • vic boss

      i’m still waiting for it, I just need to preorder it and It’ll be easier for me to let time pass until TPP arrives

  • FMercenary

    These videos were the best… by default. Don’t get me wrong, I like the majority of the editing but they could have mixed the dialogue audio lower or not include it since we already know the context to those MGS3 scenes. I was also hoping to see a winning video that made good use of the green-screen Donna Burke videos, but to no avail. Oh well.

  • turkishgamer35
  • Shalashaska

    This MUST HAVE BEEN A REALLY hard choice.. I mean seriously.. EVERY VIDEO posted on that page was like “WOW”. I had made one myself and then checked the other work to you know.. compare.. and then it hit me.. “Man, why.. you could not have posted that and made her work easier by having one less video to check because obviously, your’s isnt going to be anywhere in the top 300” xD
    Anyone else glad that there is more news.. i was beginning to miss MGI and the community in the past few hours/days 😀
    Lol me after watching the videos :

  • MrVux007

    SneakingFox my fellow country man aswell,made countless of great trailers before this one … check them out !

  • Cipher

    Just noticed the ” Time until release ” count down clock
    nice !

    • RevolverRoden

      25 weeks.

  • Alex

    No one used the segment from TGS, with the lyrics “Let me suffer now, and never die… I’M ALIIIIIVEE!!!!”

    Felt like it would’ve gone great with some of the hospital segments, the first time he sees his prosthetic arm, the struggle to crawl out, etc.
