Troy Baker On MGS5 Voice Actor Controversy: David Hayter Is Snake, But So Is Kiefer
“Might be the most ambitious game I’ve ever seen.” says Troy Baker.
If there is one person who knows how difficult voice acting is, its Troy Baker. Troy Baker supported Keifer Sutherland by asking fans to hold off on their judgment until they have played Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Troy Baker stated that Sutherland “knocked it out of the freaking park”.
In an interview at Indy PopCon 2015 Troy Baker stated “glad that I wasn’t Snake”. He further stated “To his credit, Kiefer Sutherland knocked it out of the freaking park, and he came in and he put the work in,” he said. “I love David Hayter, I love David, he’s a good dude and he’s Snake, but so is Kiefer. And that guy showed up, rolled up his sleeves and got dirty on this game. So reserve judgement until you play it. You only have like two more months left and trust me it’ll be worth it.”
Troy Baker also showed his respect for Kojima “I don’t know what’s going on at Konami, but I love Kojima, and I love him as a dude, I respect him as a game maker, as really one of the first cinematic game makers that we had, someone that really understood in a very Sergio Leone spaghetti western way of making film in a game, and for giving us one of the greatest video game characters ever in the multiple iterations of Snake.”
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain releases on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 on September 1st, while the PC version launches on September 15th
