# 1 Old Snake.

Agreed, Old Snake is the greatest gaming hero there has ever been.

He sucks at CQC compared to Big Boss though. If they would had fought hand to hand combat, I'm sure Big Boss would had smacked him silly.

Big Boss from MGS3 vs Solid Snake from MGS. Would be a very intriguing match up.

Not enough Deckard Cain
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   753d ago
Haha. I like Deckard because he was named after a kid from my school. He won the contest that Blizzard ran years ago, so they made a character with his name.
HebrewHammer  +   753d ago
NO WAY! So the famous Deckard Cain was named after your friend?!

Does your friend also happen to say "stay a while, and listen!" lol

Captain Price fulfills the author's criteria.
And what about Altair? He truly retires as a grandpa and becomes a legend. Even for grandpa Auditore :-P
