For people who want a brief, spoiler-lite synopsis of the last chapters of the game it goes like this:

Regular Ending

-You just beat the Big Boss
-As he dies, he says "You Fool! Only I could beat Bigger Boss! We are doomed!"
-He dies and Bigger Boss shows up!
-You go and kick Bigger Boss' ass
-You return from beating up Bigger Boss, get the Girl and celebrate
-However, characters and plot points that were important and left hanging are never brought up again........

True Ending
-You just beat the Big Boss
-As he dies, he says "You Fool! Only I could beat Bigger Boss! We are doomed!"
-He dies and Bigger Boss shows up!
-You go and kick Bigger Boss' ass
-You return from beating up Bigger Boss, get the Girl and celebrate
-A comrade of Big Boss, who got their ass handed to them a few chapters back and then disappeared, shows up seeking revenge on behalf of Big Boss
-Suddenly another character who you haven't seen in a while shows up, proclaims "Can't let you do that!" and bitch-slaps Big Boss' friend
-This character then reveals that they are in fact BIGGEST BOSS, were responsible for everything that happened the entire game, assumes their "true" form and taunts you
-The End.........

So........yeah. The regular ending is a conclusive/happy ending but under any scrutiny you'd question the quality of the writing due to several dropped story points. Not like something left to interpretation but rather things that were just plain forgotten about. The true ending completely overwrites the regular ending and ends on a big cliffhanger.
