Kiefer Sutherland: The Perfect Choice for Snake

Hardcore Gamer: David Hayter was a fine Snake and deserved better than being (apparently) unceremoniously dumped; but as good as Hayter's Snake was, it's a relic of gruff macho protagonist video game voices of the late '90s and early aughts. A motion capture and voice performance from one of the most underrated character actors, Kiefer Sutherland, will enhance the stakes of what Metal Gear Solid V is trying to accomplish.

Personally I think that the perfect choice for snake would be david hayter....

-GametimeUK-2021d ago

Pretty much what I was thinking.

I think changing from David Hayter sucks, but from what Kojima said in the Konami video today, it seems he wants a more cinematic game, with a more mature script and better acting. I'm pretty certain the game will be great, but it does suck that Hayter got the shaft.

Out with the old, in with the Jack "Dammit" Bauer.
I for one am stoked!

Mr_Nuts2021d ago (Edited 2021d ago )

I suppose he would be an alright choice :D

I still can't wrap my head around this, such a douche move by Kojima

Reads title.... Well, this story sucks and is just looking for hits from the real MGS fan base.

Btw, watch the video.

Kiefer stats:

I'm not a gamer

I've never done motion capture before

guitarded772021d ago

True, but he's not being asked to play a game... he's being asked to act.

ZBlacktt2021d ago

Hhhmm, lets see take the guy who's done the voice for over 15 years. Who has a background in movies and drop him. All to make up some bs story and give it to a guy with no experience in what he's hired to do. Rrrrrright. This real issue here is Kojima doesn't want David in his games anymore because of control. Yep, Kojima doesn't like the fact that David is looked at as a huge part of Metal Gear. So take David out and I take back that full control. Well, to bad it's the fans who really have the control. When the games sells don't do as expected..... Just like that total crap spin off Raiden game.....

guitarded772021d ago

I didn't say I was for it... I just stated the truth. The game is mo-cap, and Kojima wanted an actor, not a voice actor. You got a problem with it, take it up with him. I'm sure he'll care.

And Revengeance wasn't made by Kojima. MGSV is a Kojima game. Recommend checking out tonight's episode of GameTrailers, Kojima talks more about Sutherland.

CrossingEden2021d ago

many actors don't play games and have never done motion capture before, -__- being a gamer in no way shape or form goes hand in hand with acting, which is a completely different skill and mindset

ArnoldSchwarzenigra2021d ago

Hayter made genuine sacrifices for his role, he treated the characters with respect and gave life to two characters with his acting abilities. It was his defining role and he knew that. To Kiefer, it'll just be another notch on his Hollywood belt.

This is all because of Kojima's fascination with American movies and his desire to recreate Snake in a way he would have originally preferred had he been able to utilise Hollywood actors back in the early days of Metal Gear Solid.

dude you nailed it!! Hayter respected that character and had love for the franchise, respect to Keifer but he isnt here for the love of the game, he is here for the money. Kojima preferred paying more money to an actor who has no idea what MEtal Gear was before he started his roll, than keeping Hayter at a lower pay and with guaranteed passion for MGS

David Hayter the perfect choice for Snake

Big Boss and Snake are technically the same person, Snake is a clone of BB!!
