Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain

Ever since it was announced that David Hayter won’t be reprising his role as Big Boss/Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5, there has been a feeling that this is yet another classical ruse by Hideo Kojima. Fans believe that there will be a time jump in The Phantom Pain and Hayter will return as Solid Snake.

Hayter has denied any sort of involvement with the game on multiple occasions but according to information revealed to Raiden’s VO Quinton Flynn, Hayter is still Solid Snake. “More information has been revealed to me. I did not understand it in the beginning, I thought that Kiefer will be replacing David as [Solid] Snake which is not true but as Big Boss and then I was perplexed about the whole thing. Later it was explained to me that Kiefer will be replacing him as Big Boss and David will still be [Solid] Snake,” he said in an interview with AfterBuzz TV.

“I don’t really know what to feel about it. I saw an interview with David and he said he loved what Kiefer did, so if he is okay with it then I guess am okay with it. When I got this petition online from fans, I said David is not only a friend but he is an incredible [guy] and I would lobby to petition to keep his job. You know as well as I do, that there must be more to the story that none of us really know. There is management, there is agents, there is money…so who knows what it comes down to.”

Calling it now, are you guys ready for Kojima’s classical ruse cruise?

    David Hayter should never have been Big Boss in the first place. It’s like Robert Downey Junior to dub over the actor who played Iron man’s father in Captian America or getting Al Pacino to dub over Michael corleone’s father in the Godfather. Makes no sense for them to have the same voice. His only good voice acting was in MGS and MGS4. He was too cartoony and funny for doing seriousness during certain parts of MGS3 and MGS:PW.

    Kiefer Sutherland has done a grand job. listen to all the voice work he did in the MGS GZ pre-mission tapes. But there are a few and remember it is the same few that horde each and every article and youtube video that cry about this subject. They’d be happy if David hayter voiced every character from Snake to bloody The Boss. They are called “Extreme Fanboys” and are not true fans.

    I’ve been a fan of the series since Metal Gear came out and will be long from now. The Big Boss series is a different genre all together from the scifi genre that Solid snake inhabits. David Hayter is perfect for playing the unnatural clone super soldier but not as good at playing Big Boss, a normal human being who’s whole life is war and has had more trauma and scars in his life than any other video game character

      I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do…..

      Regardless of Hayter’s departure, Sutherland just sounds bored in GROUND ZEROES.

      “What’s the plan? Silence her before we’re compromised?”

      Every time I play the GZ mission that line reading makes me shake my head.

      It’s like what Freddie Prinze Jr. said: He’s the most unprofessional guy I’ve ever worked with.

    Kojima always makes it exciting and fun. I can’t wait for what aces he has left up his sleeve-but I do lament the actor switch for Big Boss.
