"I'm no hero. Never was..."

Yeah, that one could fit in the list as well. Although I associate it more with MGS4 specifically than the series in general (that goes for number 5 on my list as well though).

My favourite quote which isn't included in the article is in MGS 1 were Snake says to Octacon just before the hind battle: 'I've got to go and swat a noisy fly'

Yeah, I like that one as well. :) Although this article is more about iconic quotes than favorites. But good one!

I only chose quotes spoken by Snake himself. ;)

Love Metal Gear.
This is a funny article, love how Snake keeps his quotes short and simple and to the point.
Just to add Snake also says "Kept you waiting, huh?" at the end of the installing screen when you press start to continue in MGS4. Always made me chuckle to myself that did lol.

Snake also says "kept you waiting huh?" in other Metal Gear games like MGS 2.

Metal Gear is my favorite single player game series of all time.

Yeah I know I'm a huge MGS fan too, love all of the games. Which is your favourite Metal Gear Solid? mine would have to be the first game.
