As we can read at Metal Gear Wikia, Guy Savage is the name of an easter-egg mini game that can be found in Metal Gear Solid 3. This mini-game was directed by Shuyo Murata (MGS3 writer) as stated in the credits. Guy Savage is a basic hack-n-slash game where the player encounters a vast amount of enemies, and must press the attack buttons repeatedly to defeat them.
While there’s not an official statement, rumors say that Guy Savage was supposed to be a Konami game in development, that was later cancelled. The playable demo that was created as an internal pitch for the project was added in MGS3 just for fun.

I don’t know if this is actually what happened, but if you compare this early version of Guy Savage to the Konami game Nanobreaker, which was released a year later, you’re sure to notice some gameplay similarity. I would guess that Guy Savage was actually reworked into Nanobreaker.
Thanks for the info Marshall, i did not know about Nanobreaker, but looking at some videos it really looks a bit like Guy Savage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbpn6oRQl5k
sadly only Konami knows for sure..
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy this website. As for Guy Savage, I played it thinking it was more of a insight into a later Metal Gear title maybe related to Grey Fox or Raiden (as I didn’t get to play MGS3 until MGS4 was announced). Now knowing what little we do about the next MG title, maybe this gameplay style will make a comeback in the story of Raiden?
If this was made by Konami-then.. it’s Castlevania Lord Of Shadows..
Hack ‘n Slash + Konami = DRACULA THHHHHRRREEE DDDDDEEEEE!
