MGS5: The Phantom Pain Can Benefit From David Hayter Absence

EGMR writes: "Perhaps you’re wondering why I would be revisiting an old topic such as this (read that in a Bane voice), and the reason is because I’ve just spent the past two weeks reliving the best moments of my time as a gamer by playing through the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection. I’ve been told that I’m ‘incessant’ in my worship of Metal Gear Solid, which is my favourite game. I’m playing the series again to not only recap before The Phantom Pain, but also to revisit the game series as an older, wiser, more critical and more experienced gamer. The one issue I didn’t really comment on regarding The Phantom Pain was that of the voice actor situation, and I wanted to revisit the issue of David Hayter being replaced by Kiefer Sutherland now. But it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve discussed an issue like this, as I also debated Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil’s replacements in Batman: Arkham Origins."

It sure can, if he comes in near the end as a Solid Snake taking on Big Boss at the end, one can dream right?

Tody_ZA1727d ago

That happened in the original Metal Gear games :D I know Solid Snake has accelerated aging, but it wouldn't have been that fast! Best we could dream for is a cameo :P Unless Kojima does end up doing something crazy and brings elements of Metal Gear in.

PaleMoonDeath1727d ago

Or the screen cuts to black, credits roll, after the credits "Year 199#" and boom, you're in a certain someones shoes, Kojima's a nutter, he can do it just fine dude!

I just want an option to play with the original Japanese voices.

Oh yeah, because like an 8 year old child is gonna have a gruff voice. LOL

Hey, he's the Clint Eastwood of the video-game world, obviously he'll have a veteran's voice, sporting a mullet, and having his way with "older" woman.

This is Snake, not you we're talkin' about here.

CobraKai1727d ago

I won't be surprised if you hear David Hayter say "Metal Gear" to Big Boss in the after credit dialogue.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1726d ago

Oh, did calling you out on Snake being a child at this point in time sour your precious mood so much you need to resort to insulting people? LOL
Sorry for pointing out your flawed logic, must suck to be wrong so frequently. :(
I wouldn't know the feeling though.

I'm pretty sure he means there could be a scene at the end, set during the 90s when mg1 takes place. Not voicing a 12 year old solid snake in 1984.

Hayters gonna hate....

(sorry, I had to do it!)

When I first heard that hayter was being replaced I did feel sad, but after a while I noticed that kiefer is alright. Also played through the mgs games and noticed that mgs solid snake had the best voice. Others seems a little comical.

I wouldn't mind Hayter being replaced if it was a good replacement like Richard Doyle but Kiefer Sutherland...come on. He's awful as Snake, he puts no effort into it.
