Come on Snake has always been the greater character.

Cant wait for MGS4. Will it be the end for Snake?...For some reason I think so!

EDIT: Wow only 4 votes, and a tie between Snake and Fisher I'm surprised.
It should be interesting to see how this turns out if it picks up.

EDIR: Assassyn is it because Snake is a Sony icon that you say this? I mean you already stated you would rather jeer the game than play it! Your example sucks by the way all it really shows is that MGS is original coming up with new ideas that other games dont have. If anything your precious Sam Fisher is a wannabe Snake. I can play many other games where I just hide in the shadows (I'm going to give Splinter Cell the benefit of the doubt because I havent played the newest one and it may not be just more of the same) but MGS has always ruled over Splinter Cell and as long as Snake lives and is guided by Kojima it always will.

Snake better? He litteraly grabs a statues balls and tackle to hide from stupid AI soilders and hes better? I rather ghost my opponents than experience that crap. SPLINTER CELL!

Staircase3899d ago

If you truly like Fisher better than Snake, that's fine. But i see some people hate on snake just because he is on PS3. Seriously, MGS is revolutionary, and people should learn to respect what it has done for the stealth genre regardless of what system it is on.

grifter0243898d ago

Hmm I dont know I think Sam and snake are both pretty good to me but I think the hat goes off to Sam not because its on 360 or ps3 but because hes more humanized in the story then snake. Hes lost his daughter hes on the run you feel sympathy for his suffering plus Michael is the perfect voice for him, Snake on the other hand does have some background but come on the story is a little hard to follow sorta like the RE storyline jumping back and forth.

By the way I love how you contradict yourself there monkey you say Snake is the best (Ps3 supporter no doubt) as "Long as hes alive" but before that you said you think he might die! So his reign is going to be over in the next game and that Sam is going to be the new top dog? I am only stating your statement on this matter dont get mad at me but yourself. Then you say hes a wannabe snake? Hmm both games dont look alike I mean MGs4 looks like one level in DA and thats kangikstan ( dont know correct spelling sorry) and then conviction looks totally different so I dont know where you got that hmm maybe chaos theory that got a higher score then any MGS title? but the bottom line is this Snake is a CLONE so his badassness is because hes a clone of someone else and not his own entity so ya Snake is automatically dq'd.
But all in all they are both good spy's in my opinion and the only 1 we should be arguing over is who decided to put Raiden in the MGS world?

monkey6023898d ago

Thanks grifter I know exactly what I said and I in no way contradicted myself. Also I am not a Fanboy never have been (my past comments should prove it) This is just a case of me prefering MGS.
So let me explain, right now Snake is the king and why because Kojima made him. So I think that since Kojima is leaving he will take Snake with him. Therefore Snake will go down as the greatest. I also believe that without Kojima and Snake MGS will most likely suffer in the future. Then SC will have no chance to prove it's supperiority because MGS is NOTHING without Kojima. So comparing Splinter Cell to MGS in the future without Kojima or to an old MGS game will just not be valid.

Hatchetforce3898d ago

No offense, but if you think Sam is more humanized then you haven't been playing the MGS series. His humanity is at teh very core of Snake's, and his father's actions.

To those that say Sam is more realistic get a grip. Such people obviously haven't been in the military, worked for the government, know anything about the workings of the intel community, operational methodologies of real agents, tactics, or bothered to take a class in history.

Both characters are equally fantastical and I like both for different reasons. They are actually more alike than people realize and such debates about who is better are the stuff of wasted web space.

JsonHenry3898d ago

Snake always seemed kinda metro sexual to me whereas Sam seemed like a man's man.

Kinda like the difference between Keauno Reeves and Russel Crow. Both play deadly characters, but Russell seems more "manly" to me.

rubarb233898d ago

the metal gear series is way better than the splinter cell series. but if we compare spy vs spy, stealth vs stealth, bad ass vs bad ass, honestly i think sam pwns snake. just my opinion. I'm a huge fan of the metal gear series and i'm considering picking up a ps3 just to play MGS4, but i would still have to say that sam is the spy king. i think splinter cell is truely about stealth. whereas metal gear is more about action, story telling with stealth on the side.

fbetancourt3899d ago

Well I don't think he can be any older and still be killing and being all stealthy like he is, so I am thinking this is the last one. Make sure you vote at the end of the article for your character too :)

Anal3899d ago

But sam is the cooler one..

cloud3603899d ago

Snake and snake is cooler wan. oh i understand you must be drunk

cloud3603899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

U hav to be an adult they like lame stuff

I didnt even know who simon fisher was until now......

Vip3r3899d ago

This could end up becoming a "which has the better exclusive" war, Playstation 3 with MGS4 or Xbox 360 with Splinter Cell: Conviction? And so will no doubt spark another flamewar.

monkey6023899d ago

The MGS Vs SC argument started some time ago and for it to heat up next year is expected really.

Dr Pepper3899d ago


Sam Fisher has spent time in prison (then later felt he didn't like it anymore so he escaped with ease), joined a terrorist organization and brought it down by himself and is now a fugitive. That is an extreme badass.

Snake should be sent to prison for inappropriately touching statues in public and inappropriate acts towards the soldiers he captures (aka humping them on the ground)...

Just a little joke don't freak out people. I bet someone will take serious offense to what I said about their hero Snake.

fenderputty3899d ago

... snakes just secure with his manliness. He knows he's the man, humping a floor or not ;)

monkey6023899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

Due to your avatar I'm not surprised in the least about your favourite of the two. But Snake is my choice.

EDIT: I'm sorry according to some idiot I dont prefer Snake, Funny I never knew that until now. If someone disagrees they should have the stones to tell a person why. The disagree function on this site has lost all meaning, just look at the piece on Colin McRae for example (not that you need one)

HeavyweightInTheGame3899d ago

I like both characters but that was just some funny stuff right there. LMAO.

socomnick3899d ago

lol that was funny I noticed that too guys why does hideo kojima do such gay things in his game. I remember mgs 3 the main bad guy touched the guy who looked like raiden in his privates lol now that I think about it the name of the game was snake eater Hmmmmmmm. lol but no seriously why all the gayness in metal gear solid games.

Dr Pepper3899d ago

@ monkey602

Yeah, my avatar tends to give me away...
I respect the MGS series, I just prefer SC.

@ fenderputty

monkey6023899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

HAha good one Socomnick I never picked up on the Snake Eater thing

@Dr Pepper: Im the same just the opposite (it makes sense to me ) ;)

fenderputty3899d ago

I like snake better. I just think this article is lame and a little humor is better then some virtual baddass pissing contest.

Chris_GTR13899d ago

@ socomnick ......LMFAO!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA five star post right there

beavis4play3898d ago

are you talking about the late-night manlove sessions he was having on a regular basis? you know how men like that sort of thing when they are in prison. anyways, even old snake would cqc sams @ss in 30 seconds.

Hatchetforce3898d ago

Snake had the entire free world looking for him, not just the US government. He was framed by The Patriots and so he had everyone from INTERPOL on down looking to take him out. He wasn't considered a member of a terrorist organization but rather a one man terrorist organization.

Dr Pepper3898d ago

@ beavis4play

I was actually referring to life in prison in general. It was just a little joke, and also he wasn't sharing a cell with anyone so your comment doesn't really make sense.

InMyOpinion3898d ago

In MGS4, Snake is old and wearing kinky g-string underwear. He's more gay than ever. Gay as in wear g-strings.
