‘Metal Gear Solid V’: Will gamers be playing as Snake or Jack Bauer?

Konami shocked the gaming community when it unveiled that actor Kiefer Sutherland will replace David Hayter as the voice of Snake. The problem presented is the actor who has been synonyms with Snake is being replaced by an actor who is synonyms with another iconic character. Could Sutherland bring the same character motif as Hayter did or will gamers feel like they are playing as Jack Bauer?

I watched every single episode of 24 and watched the movies, so I'll always hear Jack Bauer whenever snake speaks. But if you haven't seen the shows you'll most likely enjoy the new va. I won't be supporting the game though.

David Hayter is Metal Gear Solid. Now, it's like some other game with some other guy standing in. A series like MGS with such a HUGE diehard fan base is not something Kojima should mess with. We are loyal to the game and it's true cast. In this day in age when there are so many great choices in games. I feel Metal Gear will just get lost in the mix and not be the once true legend of a game it once was. Something Kojima himself will see once the game is out. He just broke something that never needed fixing.

yea, firstly David Hayter is not MGS, Kojima is, Hayter is just a voice, a character we all know(multiple characters actually) and they're changing him.

I'm sad he's gone but I do think it will be ok, its not like they're enlisting some unknown person to take his place, its Kiefer Sutherland an amazing actor.

This will not affect the game at all, it will be one of the biggest games again, it will dominate the sales charts and websites and people will both hate and love it like only fans and fanboys can. We will get accustomed to him and focus on the story and the gameplay.

Those who will actually not buy the game because of a voice will be very few and very foolish.

Thanks for your "opinion" Been here since day one of this series. So again, thanks for your "opinion ". You are entitled to it and it means nothing to me. I stand by what I said and I know how it's going to turn out.

you know discussion requires back and forth, preferably in civil language but using the word "opinion" to defend your point is not participating in a discussion.

Also before you say you don't want a discussion remember that you posted on a site that has a "reply button" (hell just posting on the internet implies discussion). You are entitled to your opinion but you would've been better off not replying to my comment than posting that "opinion" bit.

ZBlacktt2009d ago

Well aware and you know I said thanks right? Right? I'm not blind or dumb to discussion. As I've been on Internet sites since the Internet was launched. But at the end of the day, it's still opinion. You stated yours, I stated mine. No biggie right?

Big Boss will be played by Sutherland much like Richard Doyle played BB in MGS4. And David Hayter will play solid snake because I'm sure this game is about the birth of the snakes. Everyone I happy. Kojima is laughing in a dark room somewhere.

ZBlacktt2009d ago

We can only hope. But was that the case with the MGS movie as well? Nope, he is trying to part ways with David.

Every time I picture Kojima, it is always this image.

Somebody explain the surplus of bubbles!?

RBlue_Desire2009d ago

All the bubbles got reset.

Did you even read this blog post? Everything is explained there.

xBigxBossx2009d ago

No I didn't see this but thanks.

I speculate Hayter and Sutherland will both be voice acting in the game. This is a prequel of sorts; clones galore.
