Canadian-American actor, screenwriter and voice actor David Hayter has been voicing Snake for more than a decade but which Metal Gear title was his favorite?
good taste mr.Hayter. 3 for me too
They are each fantastic in every way. Personally, I like to think of them all as one giant game, one giant story arc, because I don't have a favorite. To me, it is the perfect game (the whole series) and everything about it is amazing. I do however think that the octocamo suit in 4 is one of the most genius ideas I've ever seen in my life. If military ever comes up with something like that...dang.
for me, MGS1 story, atmosphere, bosses, Otacon, Ocelot, Rex, endings, emotions, etc. the game was masterpiece, as well as the rest of MGS games Kojima ftw
He's said that MGS3 was his favorite a while ago. So it's not really much of a reveal.
I agree with BigCMan.
Very well said BiggCMan, completely agree with you.
MGS1 still the best!
Personally 4 is my favorite.. Not because of the ps3 or some weird reason like that.. Guns of the patriots had some of the most jaw dropping moments i've ever experienced in a game.. Anyone who has played 4 knows what I'm talking about.. Shadow moses and of course outer haven.. Every single question I ever had about MGS was answered in the span of this game and for that it will hold a special place in my heart... 3 is a very very close second btw ;)
Absolutely. Going back into Shadow Moses was simply humbling. So much nostalgia playing the original game.
I remember when I entered shadow moses in MGS4 and had a flood of some of my fondest gaming memories.. It was a special feeling that not very many games help me achieve.. When the game ended I was sadened and overyjoyed at the same time.. Sadened by the fact that it was over, I didnt want that game to end. But I was happy because my biggest fear involving snake didnt happen... I'm sure you know what I mean, I dont want to spoil it for those who haven't played it...
I still get goosebumps, ahh when the music starts playing and all the flashbacks :') Let's not forget the hall full of microwaves :'(
You all are going to make me play MGS4 again. ......I was holding out for the trophy patch.. silly me.
The Song! The Song Man, when you put a foot in SM... when you get close to the hangar/facility and you see the old camera there, WOW! all that stuff was really unique...
MGS4 was great, but I think the execution of a lot of ideas could've been better. Like the explanation for Vamp's invincibility, the identity of the Patriots, the whole of Act 3 sucking, etc. The start of Act 5 was amazing, pure classic MGS stealth. Shame it was so brief, though.
Actually, call me crazy but... My personal favorite is Peace Walker! I feel a lot of people haven't played this :( But for those of you getting a Vita, def check it out!
its really a tie between mgs4 and peace walker. especially being able to play PW in hd on my ps3. i love 2 and 3, but the view and controls just don't do it for me
The Subsistence/HD version of 3 uses the same camera as Peace Walker...
MGS3 by far
Yup, MGS3 is the best of the series to me too (and my favorite overall game ever [see my bio]).
MGS3 imo is BY FAR the best game ever. So good in fact that to me MGS4 was a huge disappointment... and MGS4 is on my top 3 best games of the current generation -_-
Yes... I also feel Snake eater was the best. Some people hated it, but i loved the survival aspect of the game. My second is peace walker... by far the best PSP game I ever played I can't wait to pick up the MGS collection on Vita... I lost my 3DS.... so when I buy a vita Im sure to pick one up
"Some people hated it" Those people (whoever they are) are a waste of natural resources.
I actually don't know anyone who hates MGS3... in fact, most people I know list it as their favourite...
@ PirateThom Well at my school, Im the only one who says Snake eater is their favourite. Most favour MGS4 or the original MGS... Snake eater is amoungst their last because they disliked the survival mechanics
Respectfully disagree, my favourite is MGS4 but I can appreciate different opinions. :)
Same for me, that's the reason i picked HD collection...time to spent a weekend going full Stealth 100%
If they ever decide to make a Metal Gear Solid movie.. they need to have this guy to portray as Solid Snake.
3 is my favorite over 4, god damn, 4 was epic.
3 is the best, but doesnt get credit most the time.
Ya really, people always talk about the other three solid games first.
Majority of people usually say MGS3 is their favourite.
I'd say 3 for its theme song along! Never mind the fact that I also found it to be the most emotional one. 1 and 4 were also amazing games though.
Indeed, i agree, everything about it was perfect. First time i nearly cried over a game, at the ending. My favorite game of all time, cant wait to get the HD version.
I did cry over 4.. Despite how much of a beast big boss is and the ending of 3 was one of the best of all time I will alwasy be a snake fanatic.. Metal gear solid was the first time I ever played a game that left me in awe.. So MGS4 is my pick, heck I'm buying a 1911 operator (they're real) handgun bc of 4 lol...
4 was pure epic, but to me 3 had more of an artistic touch too, and I like that. That one area where you climb that interminable ladder and the theme song starts playing A capella, that really resonated with me. One of the most memorable events in games I've played, for me.
4 for me was probably the best "game", but weakest story in the series, not that it was bad, just the others were better. Even 2, when people think of 2 they think of Raiden, but 2 was very important to the story and was actually a great game with some of the best MGS moments and memorable characters. But yeah, as groundbreaking and memorable as MGS1 was, MGS3 is still my favorite. Like Blaine said, the ladder climb was amazing, the game had so many great moments, such as the greatest boss battle ever in my opinion, "The End", the ending scene with "The Boss" and "Sorrow's River" among others. Best series ever.
Oh shit, forgot Sorrow's River! MGS3 was actually the first MGS game I played (I got into the series late, finally got around to it when MGS4 was announced, and figured I'd do 3 first since it's a prequel) and I didn't really know you weren't supposed to kill anyone then. Took me over an hour to get across that river... Worst part is, I didn't realize you're supposed to die and use the pill when the gameover screen comes up, so I had to do it twice! (If only I'd known I could just drown myself and skip it...) I learned my lesson; it was fewest-kills playthroughs for me after that. How many games actually turn people into pacifists? MGS3 taught me a life lesson! (And although I'd forgotten about the river, the lesson stuck.)
Part 3 is my favorite as well but I do love all of them. Favorite game series.
I personally favor MGS2 as the best of the series. I know it always gets a bad wrap because Snake wasn't the main character, but it was a revolutionary game. The presentation values and level of detail in the graphics were insurmountable at the time... Excellent voice acting and cinematics, a fantastic musical score, and some of the most dramatic storytelling found not just in a game but any medium for that matter. All this wrapped around deep yet immensly satisfying stealth gameplay that never got old.
I very well have listed the qualities that were found in each of the other metal gear games as well, but for me MGS2 was just groundbreaking at the time for what was possible in a video game, in every regard.
MGS2 was my first MGS and PS2 game, so I just love it.
Agreed. I actually thought Raiden was a good main character, I was disappointed when it was him, but he got better. Second to me would be Portable Ops, I liked having to drag people into the truck for recruitment, over the parachuting in PW.
I agree sir. Although the part on the tanker was short, it was amazing. And Raiden does get a bad wrap, but he wasn't bad and I really enjoyed the oil rig.
No MGS gave me the same chills as the first one but 3 is definitely the one I played the most.
I Agree !!!!! And i aint even gonn read the article Because if its good enough for Snake Then its my Favorite too
3 is my favourite, but I have a soft spot for the MGS1 4 didnt do it for me, I found it too weird, not enough stealth
Although I loved how everything ended in 4, 3 was by far the best MGS of them all~
I love all of them!
I'm actually replaying 4 right now... it's pretty funny that the character models are STILL some of the best this gen. Whole game looks awesome, games coming out this year don't look as good which is ridiculous.
MGS1. That's where it all started, so it'll always be the most special to me.
It all started with Metal Gear (for the MSX) which I played when it got ported to the Nintendo Famicom in Japan. But yes possible Metal Gear Solid was the start of something new with the change from over the top view and the nice use of the soliton radar. But I still hold the original Metal Gear as one of my favorites as it was one of my early games that I bought with my own money and for my own system. (Note: the title asks which Metal Gear Title while the article actually asked which Metal Gear Solid he liked. Two different questions.)
4 for me, best game i have ever played. However 1,2,3,PW are all fantastic.
MGS2. Raiden is my favourite character.
I must have played through 2 over 10 times getting all the dog tags. Gotta be my favourite for that reason.
mgs3 > mgs1 > mgs peacewalker > mgs4 for me
Totally agree. Snake Eater is by far the best Metal Gear Solid game followed by Peace Walker. MGS1 remains in my heart. The rest are beautiful too! I really can't choose :P
I guess I belong to the small camp of people who like MGS2. I played it so many times. It revolutionized the MGS experience. I still remember playing the demo of MGS2 that was packaged with Zone of Enders. Man, blew my mind. I think I was in 10th grade when it game out. Just about 10 years ago now. I'll always love MGS, but two just sticks in there. I think I almost collected all those f***ing dogtags from all the difficulties.
hayters gonna hayte!
4 was my first and one of my favs. i just loved that game
GOTP! hands down!
I was the one who asked him the question. I expected him saying MGS1 but was really happy when he said Snake Eater.
Really !?? Who cares ? David Hayter is not really a story ..... Kojima's favorite would have been something to read about . Stop over acting the brilliant characters created for you David .......
David Hayter is not a story? Well, yeah. I don't think a person can be a story.
No surprise there.
