The 15 Best Solid Snake Quotes

Solid Snake is a man of few words. When he does talk, his sentences often consists of repeating something he just heard about or saw in a questioning manner. But at the same time, he is also a character with a surprising capacity for self-reflection, his own ideas about morality, and, from time to time, a philosopher’s attitude. These qualities are displayed in the following fifteen quotes, that expose Snake’s personality or show his beliefs about the world.

 

“I’m no hero. Never was, never will be.”

MGS4-Im-No-Hero
These are among Snake’s most famous words from the fourth installment in the series. Snake doesn’t see himself as some heroic figure, even though the people around him do. ‘I’m just an old killer, hired to do some wet work’. Snake feels that what he does, the missions he carries out, are a necessity and even an obligation, even if he sometimes has to get his hands dirty. At the same time it reflects a certain stubbornness, believing that the mission is his duty and his alone, and this conviction is more important to him than a happy ending. In other words, he doesn’t have to come back alive, let alone be celebrated by others.

 

“A strong man doesn’t need to read the future. He makes his own.”

MGS1-Solid-Snake-Own-Future
Psycho Mantis spent his entire life diving into other people’s minds, trying to understand their motives, what drives them, and what’s to come for them. He can see into the future and is able to base his actions on what he knows will happen. But Snake doesn’t believe in fate. Why look into the future when you can shape it yourself? MGS1 is about individuals trying to break free from their genetic fate, choosing their own life instead, and this quote illustrates Snake’s view on it.

 

“He who controls the battlefield, controls history.”

MGS4-War-Becomes-Routine
In Metal Gear Solid 4, war exists within its own controlled ecosystem. The Patriot system is creating and fueling proxy wars as a means to generate money. War as a business model. And of course this level of control over war also means control over the fate of whole civilizations. Control over history. A simple quote, but it has a lot of meaning.

 

“Unfortunately, killing is one of those things that gets easier the more you do it.”

MGS1-Sniper-Wolf-Death
Even though he doesn’t embrace this ‘destiny’ the way Liquid does, Solid Snake acknowledges that he is a weapon, someone who was made to be on the battlefield, who was created to kill. This also made him see this harsh truth. He doesn’t like it, but he doesn’t deny it either.

 

“I’m a shadow, one that no light will shine on. As long as you follow me, you will never see the day.”

MGS4-Old-Snake-Shadow
Many of Metal Gear Solid 4’s characters recognize their own sins in life and try to make up for them before they pass away. Snake is one of them. He feels he has one last mission to fulfill, to leave behind a world no longer affected by his mistakes. He feels that he must walk this path alone, as to not drag anyone else with him.

 

“I’m just a man who’s good at what he does. Killing.”

MGS1-Solid-Snake-vs-Vulcan-Raven
Solid Snake’s cynical view on his own life and his place in the world is something that returns in various games. Snake doesn’t want his deeds to be glorified, because while he does try to fight with the best intentions, it still requires him to kill, and as he says in Metal Gear Solid 2: ‘there is no right part in murder. Not ever’. The results of this life make him a monster in the eyes of some, and a hero in the eyes of others. But to himself, he is simply a skilled killer.

 

“War has changed.”

MGS4-Old-Snake-Battlefield-Control
One of the most well known lines from Metal Gear Solid 4. Snake isn’t talking as much about the nature of war, but the means its fought with and the reasons its fought for. MGS4 takes place in a world where war has become so important to the global economy that it’s indispensable, and that’s why the governments of the world are afraid to do anything about the situation. War has become nothing but a means to keep the economy running, a repetition of patterns within a controlled system, a ‘well oiled machine’. It isn’t waged as a result of a difference in ideals, or over who controls what territory, or any such reasons wars used to be waged for in the past. War has become the goal itself. And in this way, ‘war has changed’.

 

“It’s easy to forget what a sin is in the middle of a battlefield.”

MGS1-Snake-Sin
Here Solid Snake summarizes how it is possible that war often seems to change people into monsters, or as Drebin says in Metal Gear Solid 4: ‘War transforms us. Into beasts’. The battlefield is a place where killing is not only accepted, but necessary, and where the normal rules of society don’t apply. In this setting, where everyone has to fight for his own survival, differentiating between right and wrong and remembering your values can be a lot more difficult than it is to the outside observer.

 

“What little time I have left will be spent living… as a beast. A shadow of the inside… of the old age.”

MGS4-Old-Snake-Beast
Snake’s task is over. He is the last thing that remains from an era that has passed. The last chapter of the Patriots’ long and tumultuous history. Now he has a few months left to live. He’s going to ‘see the world off’, observe it once more before he dies. But, he will never be truly part of it, for he doesn’t really belong in this era. He’s an outsider to this new world. A remainder of the old times.

 

“It’s only when I’m cheating death on the battlefield. The only time I feel truly alive.”

MGS1-Snake-Cheating-Death
Snake never saw himself as a hero, and this quote explains why. In Metal Gear Solid, he’s not fighting out of idealism or bravery, he’s fighting because that’s the only thing he knows. It is also the reason he can’t leave the battlefield behind, he needs to face death to feel alive. And this is why he keeps finding himself in the midst of war.

 

“I don’t have any more tears to shed.”

MGS1-Tears-to-Shed
After killing Sniper Wolf, Snake says these words to Otacon. They suggest a deep trauma within Snake that has left a scar, and at the same time they imply he hit a mental switch, where he no longer tries to bring emotions to the battlefield, or to other people in general. This has made him a lonely man.

 

“No one quite knows who or what they are.”

MGS2-No-One-Quite-Knows
Many people find themselves searching for an identity, finding out what their role is in the world, how they are going to live their life, what they find important. In short: who they are. This search for identity is always an important theme in MGS, and especially in MGS2. Raiden’s identity has been shaped and molded by others, he has been manipulated and controlled, and now he has to find out for himself who he wants to be. ‘Who am I really?’ he wonders, after which Solid Snake responds with this quote. He goes on to remind Raiden that there is no such thing as absolute reality in this world, so you have to find your own truth, and choose your own life.

 

“I’ve never fought for anyone but myself.”

MGS1-Never-Fought-for-Anyone
In Metal Gear Solid 1, Snake is a cynical man whose perception of his past is completely different from that of Meryl, who sees him as a hero. As a young soldier, she looks up to him and admires the things he has done. Snake however, denies everything that is human or good about himself, shattering every characteristic Meryl tries to attribute to him, ultimately concluding with these words.

 

“A name means nothing on the battlefield.”

MGS1-Snake-Name-Means-Nothing
When Meryl asks Snake to tell her his real name, this is his reply. Snake knows the battlefield well, and what it does to people. When you’re fighting in a war, you will forget who you were. It doesn’t mean anything. At the same time Snake tries to keep Meryl at a distance, just as he’s done with everything the past six years. Meryl sees him for what this has made him: “You’re a sad, lonely man.” And Snake cannot deny this.

 

“Building the future and keeping the past alive are one and the same thing.”

MGS2-Solid-Snake-Pass-the-Torch
If we want to create a better world, we have to learn from our mistakes. Our failures can help us prevent them from happening in the future. It was The Patriots’ intention to advance our species by carefully selecting information, by manipulating knowledge. But maybe we need those failures, and the ability to fail, in order to shape our future.

This list contained the most meaningful and telling quotes by Solid Snake. For his most recognizable and iconic words, go here.
  • Cipher

    My favourite quotes ” I’m no hero, never was, never will be ”

    ” I’m just an old killer, hired to do some wetwork ”

    “There is no beauty and the beast ending for me ”

    the saddest thing about David, is that he had been played like a fiddle his entire life

  • Big_Boss88

    I love MGS quotes and these articles :), thanks Nyx!

    “I’m no hero. Never was, never will be.”
    The first one is one of my favorites, but still they are all so epic so hard to pick best ones.

    “I don’t have any more tears to shed.”
    Perhaps because of the scenes that happened in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake ;(…

    Also Solid Snake killing Gray Fox+Big Boss. No more tears left.

    https://40.media.tumblr.com/d835e2bee36686257f3c6f6584e2d7ba/tumblr_mmud1nDwf21rpkkuqo1_1280.jpg

    • Yeah it’s really hard to pick, and to leave so many out.

      • Big_Boss88

        Np, you picked 15 amazing quotes. ;D

        • John Mánuel

          Dude you watch Berserk. That is so cool. (fellow Berserk fan)

      • This article made me restart MGS4 right after I read it. I didn’t have time to reply to anything today haha.

        I like his quote if you don’t save Meryl in MGS

        (Even though it’s non canon)

        “I gave into my fear, I gave into my pain. I sold your life to save my own, I’m a loser! I’m nothing you ever thought I was”

        Another I like from MGS
        “Don’t regret your past. Learn from it. Regrets only make a person weaker”

        But my favorite

        Meryl: “Is there anyone you like?”
        Snake:”I’ve never been interested in anyone else’s life”
        Meryl: “So you are alone, Just like Mantis said.”
        Snake:”Other people just complicate my life. I don’t like to get involved.”
        Meryl:”You’re a sad, lonely man.”

        The last one hit home when I was younger, When my mother brother and sisters left me and father all alone. It was just me and him and I couldn’t or wouldn’t bother to let anyone else in my life, Until I met my wife of course. I’m a sucker for Soild Snake and Meryl too. If you haven’t guessed HAHA.

        Killer list and article Nyxus

  • Tibor

    awesome. do you think you could do this for Big Boss ? I know he probably has less “deep” quotes but he sure has some good ones. my personal favorite is “There is always another reason to keep on living”. helped me a lot

    • Yeah, it’s in the works, but it would be better to wait with that list until MGSV is out.

      • Tibor

        great! yeah with the deeper tone of TPP I hope will come a lot of great quotes, not only from BB

  • Golgari

    Yeah. That is amazing.

    Personally I would put full MGS2 ending as a big quote from Solid snake. Everything he said there was an excellent in writing.

    We need to see what MGSV brings to us with big Boss.

  • jack_coban

    Mostly MGS1 and MGS4. None from MGS3. That’s not surprising. The Boss was the quote-machine back then. Snake was “still a child”…

    • This list contains only quotes from Solid Snake, not Big Boss. He gets his own list some day. 😛

      • jack_coban

        Oh! Right!! xD How emberassing *equips stealth camo*

  • Venom_Sina

    Fantastic article.I love it.Thanks,Nyxus.

    • Glad you liked it!

  • MrVux007

    goddammit now i have to play Solid Snake saga again….. ^^

    • Do it!

      • Mini gear

        how bout for every fiddle kojima plays, we have to replay every single metal gear game in timeline order :p

    • decoyF0XX

      Makes me want to replay MGS4 in particular. Those feels 🙁

    • Le Guy who drowned quiet

      im doing it because of the wait for tpp.

  • Rikimaru

    Metal Gear Solid was the first game I’ve ever played, It is IMPOSSIBLE to me to read the quotes without hearing Snake’s voice sounding in my mind. Thats what makes MGS a great franchise, it is so much more than cutscenes, gameplay, etc. Dialogues are one of a kind.

    • Rikimaru

      Also, thank you Nyx! these articles are great and also a great time travelling experience!

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Heh I don’t mean disrespect but snakes voice has always bothered me in mgs1 mgs 2 and mgs3. . His voice is so monotone and only has one way to express emotions. That always bothered me. Mgs4 snake was my favorite. Voice. You could hear when he was in pain tired mad sad excited. Gz did a good job of showing the emotion in voice. I think a lot of people haven’t reeally played or listened to the voices because compared to some other games . His voice gets annoying

      • Rikimaru

        No offense taken, its your opinion 🙂

  • Invader_skoodge

    My favorite Solid Snake Quotes are a little more light-hearted and just outright nostalgic for me.
    – “A Hind D? Colonel, what’s a Russian gunship doing here?”
    -To May ling: “I just didn’t expect a world-class designer of military technology to be so…cute”
    -To Master Miller: “There’s no one I’d rather have in a foxhole than you.” Snake is a fanboy.
    -Talking about Metal Gear to the DARPA chief:”Metal Geearr. It can’t be”
    -To Meryl: “You haven’t even taken the safety off, rookie.” and then to Johnny in MGS4
    -To Meryl again: “Yeah…you’ve go a great butt”
    -To Naomi after torture scene: “You can leave out the benzedrine. That stuff makes me too frisky” lol
    -“I gotta go and swat a noisy fly” < OMG he's so cool!!
    -To Meryl "Maybe it's time I live for some one else." "Someone like you." ( ^ 3 ^) ♥

    And that's just Metal Gear Solid. I could go on and on with MGS2 and 4

  • Apokalypze

    Would love to see a remake for the old metal gear and metal gear 2, anyone?

    • Jonny McLaurine

      Metal gear 1 Big Boss quote: I have forget to tell you about that!
      Was everytime you about walked into a boobietrap

    • Jonny McLaurine

      And yes. Everyone says mgs1 was best but the original mg games were hard. Not casual as the rest of mgs series became.

    • Big_Boss88

      Words wouldn’t be enough to describe how amazing and emotional that would be :D. The final confrontation between my 2 heroes to death (if don’t count MGS4 😛 ), and also Gray Fox.

      “Very well Snake, I’ll release you from your suffering. As your former commander, I’ll do you one last favor…and put you out of your misery”
      Just imagining the scenes or speeches between SS and BB with voice acting+Fox Engine makes me so excited hehe.

      I guess we see after a decade will there be remake of them.

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Idk about emotional. That’s what sucked about mg. wasn’t much of a fight. Takes ten seconds if you know how to launch the missiles and corner him . Bcuz u got 2200 seconds to kill and escape b4 base explodes. Metal gear 1
        Was still very hard to get thoer unti you got game mezzed

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm yeah, but it’s quite old game, so if they would remake it I bet it would be a lot different. Better graphics, VA, longer conversations and battles etc.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            That’s what I think is gonna happen. Every game we see what happens then at next game we find out it was bs. Someone gets played. Why did boss show up alive and well in mgs4? That’s why I beleive the madd hatter voice conspiracy for TPP is actually biggest clue we have that none of metal gear to metal gear 4 happened or is a future reading from mantis. We will see all remade and retconned

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Have you played the games in order as they would of happened in timeline? If so. Do again an keep mind open about stuff we see in TPP. TPP is the remake . That’s the surprise. See if the previous metal gears not true then what really needs retconned? If mantis was telling boss the future then TPP will restart the future of MG and MGS

          • Big_Boss88

            I have played few times in timeline order yes, but I usually prefer to play in release order. But when TPP release then it will be pretty cool to play through chronologically, because the saga has gone like complete circle.

            Well that is interesting theory for sure :), but I guess we will find out in few months :D.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Truthfully I had read something about playing them in the way they are released. The guy broke it down to the memes of each game. Actually made a lot of sense. What’s funny is that each installment tells a part of the story and the characters are bent to make that installment good. Most game developers could not do that and sell a game because people would complain. Yet KOJIMA makes it work.

      • PrinceHeir

        Hey you became a mod here? :O

        Cool! Congrats!

        • Big_Boss88

          Arigatou very much Prince 😉 ! Yeah we formed a small team to strengthen the security of our Outer Heaven :D.

          • Hanna-Mari

            Joo kiitti 😀 <3! Ihan kiva kun vielä favorite-sivulla ;)!

          • No other page was worthy of me creating a account for haha

          • Big_Boss88

            Nice ;D, yeah it’s pretty much same with me too :P. XD

          • Tibor

            was you recruited via fulton or did you heard about the spreading word of MSF? 😀

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,Kiefer and David will make a great team!!!
        By the way,Congrats on becoming a mod.I strongly believe that you’re the right person for this.

    • Venom_Sina

      Oh!Absolutely!!

    • Jonny McLaurine

      See this is sad. Almost all think MGS was the beginning. We need mg an mg 2 redone so you can get the complete story of big boss and snake relationship.
      That’s just sad that almost everyone is worried about the argument to VA instead of the NES and Super NES remake to get more on par with the new vision of metal gear universe. The games are pretty much a single mission in a small place.

      • WhatTheJuicay

        “almost all think MGS was the beginning”? that’s a broadly false statement.. the correct statement would be that Most people haven’t played the games before MGS. I haven’t, but I’ve known about them after playing MGS1 in 1998. I was just in 6th grade and I knew there was more to it that existed before MGS. I have the HD essential collection and still haven’t played the Metal Gear games. Don’t really care to. Theres lots of information about it and MGS stands on its own without it.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          You fail to understand what I mean. For instance a lot and I mean a lot of people have not played mg1 and mg2. Yet thy have played everything else in the series. What game do they want remade? Mgs1 and forward. I know a lot of people also agree with me that mg and mg2 need redone because the story is pretty bland . Obvious do to the tech out at the time.
          P.s I’m bad with words so it’s my fault for the confusion. I meant to say alot

          • Big_Boss88

            Yeah this is kinda true. Some new fans to the series might not even know about them or try play, because they’re so old. They’re pretty hard games imo, like most games from the 80’s or 90’s, NES-Sega era etc.

          • Jonny McLaurine

            Exactly but one other thing. Snake from MGS1 history was built off what he did mg1 and mg2. Yet none of that seemed to happen. Somehow big boss being burnt up =s being thrown off a bridge. How in mgs2 nobody knew colonel Campbell? Also the alien references. I was driving home I saw lights around me then I woke up at home. Do you know what happened to me? All saying is mgs gets retconned whenever kojima needs to. Every game has done this in some fashion in the MGS franchise. Seems to me kojima has to retcon or add something because he has said in past he wanted to do each ge twice because of the issues?
            Ok that could be a maybe alternate universe where bb does not have same shit happen to him in our history in his.
            All a idea I have on a lot of the cryptic ideals in series

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Also that’s another point I was making. You haven’t even attempted to play and are relying on information wrote about it . I beleive tht those two games deserve a makeover because so many have missed it . They really do pertain to the MGS series. The la-le-lu-lo- whatever the hell lol is first mentioned in mg1. What sucks is that you really have to use your imagination compared to future titles where the tech helped tell the story. Was all I meant

      • Sage Bustamonte

        You know what I hate? When people call them the NES games… THEY WERE THE MSX(2) GAMES ARGGHH!!!!! But seriously the NES port was bad and Snakes Revenge is utter shit.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          Yea lot don’t know what msx is… I just put in layman

        • Jonny McLaurine

          That’s what I’m saying haha. They were awesome back then. Hell that was next generation then haha.
          It needs redone plain and simple.

        • Jonny McLaurine

          On the msx front mg1 had so much txt in a game. That was never seen before and if I remember right , back then , it got a rating of a 8.5? Could be wrong but compared to the other MGS titles it is shit. Just as MGS 4 got a damn near 10/10 back then but now people say it was bad because of Doyle. Same thing

  • George Sears

    “Building the future and keeping the past alive are one and the same thing.”
    Always been my favorite.

  • mr white

    Best article I read in my life!!!

  • FOX

    War has changed. Our time has ended. Our war is over. But there is one last thing I must do…one last punishment I must endure. Erase my genes, wipe this meme off the face of the planet. This is my final mission

    This is my favorite and most emotional ONE!

  • Jonny McLaurine

    Solid snake is cool loves metal gear solid. Just so happy the story is focusing on the best of the best . It’s kinda weird because of all the cloning but every character tried to distinguish themselves from big boss some way. What I always wanted to see was big boss perception on the U.S and NATO bombing outer haven in afrika. Killed all the war orphans to cover up their mistakes. Boss was never bad nor big boss. Though as so many true soldiers that when you can no longer help or seriously wounded. Your tossed out like garbage.

  • CrazyGuy207

    I like the part in MGS4 on Shadow Moses where he says “A surveillance camera?” and it breaks. Nothing deep, but it sure is nostalgic. Maybe that could be filed with the “Shadow of the old age” quote.

    • CrazyGuy207

      Continued.

    • Yeah, the whole Shadow Moses act had this ‘faded glory’ like feeling to it. Actually did an article on it earlier, also mentioning the camera: http://www.metalgearinformer.com/?p=9967

      • CrazyGuy207

        Yeah, I remember that one. I hope MGSV will have something similar. Not counting Camp Omega, because that’s only one game away.

        • WhatTheJuicay

          Camp Omega is instant nostalgia if you put in a whole bunch of hours trying to get 100%. Going to one place over and over and over and over will do that to you.

      • decoyF0XX

        How are your MGS1 screenshots so sharp lol??

        • Downloaded the HD cutscenes from Youtube a few years ago. Maybe they were recorded using an emulator. And they are also resized, so that makes them look sharper as well.

    • Rikimaru

      Thats gotta be THE most nostalgic moment I’ve ever experienced in a game…I remember when I started walking down towards the heliport and “The Best is yet to come” started sounding in the background, oh man lot of emotions there.

  • PrinceHeir

    “I’ve never fought for anyone but myself.”

    Is my favorite one, but i’ll always remember him in MGS2 answering to Raiden if they enough Ammo for this to pull off.

    “Infinite Ammo” XD

    http://metalgearinformer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Snake-Infinite-Ammo.jpg

  • Venom_Sina

    In this part of MGS4,Old Snake has a lot of great dialogues!!!

  • Plissken

    Not originally Solid Snake’s quote, but one he adopted: “We’re not tools of the government or anyone else. Fighting was the only thing I was good at but at least I always fought for what I believed in.” Probably one of the most important quotes in the series. While in the beginning of MGS3, The Boss tells Naked Snake that soldiers are “a political tool. Nothing more.”

  • turkishgamer35

    great article actually we didn’t need only news from mgs5 all mgs games have a lot of great things like characters,cutscenes and these kind of things hope next one about boss fights,emotional moments or maybe songs

  • Hanna-Mari

    These all quotes are remarkable, not just MGS quotes but others too. It’s good to remember them when you have a hard time.

  • cardboardbox engineer

    “It’s easy to forget what a sin is in the middle of a battlefield”
    wow, i am very intrigued by the writers of mgs, not just the whole Kojima twists and his ideas about the story, but generally the dialogues , one of my favorite characters of all time is Solidus, the words that this character spoke of , about digital age and leadership still shake my ideas about how much we know of our modern society, as always Nyxus thank you for making my day

  • Cassio

    I like these
    Solid Snake: I’ve never been interested in anyone else’s life…
    Solid Snake: Other people just complicate my life. I don’t like to get involved.

  • MichaelPayneV

    My most favorite Metal gear Quote is a Big Boss quote.

    “Does it have to be one or the other, love or hate?”

    • Good one!

      Eva was hungry for that Naked Snake!

      I was wondering where you went haha.

    • Big_Boss88

      I love that one too, MGS characters got best quotes ever :D!

      • MichaelPayneV

        Wow, Congrats for being a Mod, i’m happy for you…but also don’t understand why i’m not one already.

        Anyway keep this place clean from Trolls.

        • Big_Boss88

          Thank you mate. i don’t know why you ain’t yet, but I wanted to give it a chance :). Maybe we get more in future.

          I guess one reason I was trying to keep it as secret at first lol, was because if someone else like REALLY wanted to do it and then might get mad at me :3… It stupid I know lol, but want to keep this site peaceful.

          If there will be some moment that I can’t do this for a while, then someone else can take my place for sure. It is up to the Commanding Officers in the end though.
          Yes I will defend this place 😉 !

          • MichaelPayneV

            Damn right.

        Nice maybe it will be ;D, been long time since I heard that ^_^.

        My guess is that this will be next XD!… 😛

        • MichaelPayneV

          Yeah, or maybe, just maybe we will see this scene recreated in TPP in some way shape or form, while keeping the song, the Same Song, as an Homage to THIS 1984 Classic Masterpiece.

            OH YEAH :D! I can already imagine Quiet being at some party in Mother Base and Big Boss will walk in there with full arsenal, and we all know who the target will be.

            “When the time comes, I’ll pull the trigger!”

          • MichaelPayneV

            I was thinking more at Skull Face (Replacing The Terminator) looking after Cipher (Replacing Sarah) and just when he is about to Shoot him Big Boss (Replacing Kyle Reese) to Shoot Skull Face Down

            Another possibility would Big Boss Going after Eli, and Ocelot shooting Big Boss down when he is about to Kill Eli…quid Snake.

          man i hope Kojima will use some classic 1970’s-1980’s songs. with his editing it would be awesome

  • MichaelPayneV

    Off Topic, Not MGS Related, but Sony related. I think we may just have found the Joel and Ellie Actors for The Last Of Us Movie.
    Watch it till The End and then, only then say whether or not they would pull it of!

    PS: The Video is 5 minutes long, so if you already reply in less then 5 minutes from the moment this comment is posted it means you didn’t watch it all, therefore you can’t have an accurate opinion.

    • Big_Boss88

      I think they could pull it off :). But it depends on if the movie makers want to get actors who look exactly like Joel and Ellie from the game with same kind of voice. That for example is the problem imo with many other game movies. Because they usually pick just lookalikes who can’t act.

      But that being said, I think even Shia here looks quite similar to Joel with that beard.

      I’m not into this kind of music very much, that performance was strange but at the same time good especially in the end.

      • MichaelPayneV

        I personally liked the Song, but what is the most important is that Shia is a Good actor, and Joel in TLOU may be his Breakout Role.

  • Captain

    Maybe he really is dead. A shadow gone from this world entirely.

    I still prefer Solid Snake any day.

      Kill yourself?

      Love your site btw Nyxus

      • MichaelPayneV

        I’d rather not.

    • Mr.Pony

      Let’s not forget the real Snake Pliskin, Kojima’s inspiration for Solid Snake and Big Boss

      • MichaelPayneV

        Indeed, i actually think that Hideo got Hayter for MG:S because Kurt Russell wasn’t available.

  • Remco

    What?! why isn’t ‘kept you waiting huh?’ on this list?

  • MichaelPayneV

    Question to see who is a Real Fan of Hideo’s work, and not just a Fan-Boy, to see who recognizes the Filming Technic used for MGSV, and which of these 4 Directors is most known for using it.

    a) David Fincher
    b) James Cameron
    c) Michael Mann
    d) Michael Bay

    Sniper Wolf: Is that right? Well I’m going to send you a love letter, my dear. Do you know what that is? It’s a bullet straight from my gun to your heart.

  • MichaelPayneV

    Fun Fact, the Filming Technic used for MGSV in GZ and TPP is called Hand-Held Camera, do not Confuse it with Shaky Cam, i Repeat, do not Confuse it with Shaky Cam.

    Hand-Held Camera is a Technic used by Directors like Michael Mann, Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Rob Zombie that has the Purpose of making you feel like being there in the Action, for example in Michael Mann Movies Shootouts you feel like you are there thanks to this Filming Technic and the Outstanding Sound Design, and the FACT that Hideo is using this Technic for MGSV Combined with a 1 Shot Camera and a Wonderful Sound Design makes the Cinematography of MGSV be one of The Best, if not The Best ever seen in any Media, not just Video Games.

    • Invader_skoodge

      Have you seen Birdman with Michael Keaton? That’s one great film that uses the “shot in one take” technique that Ground Zeroes uses.

      • Big_Boss88

        This movies is on my must-watch-list and I heard it’s really great one too :D.

      • MichaelPayneV

        No, but i will definitely go see it this week!

    • Big_Boss88

      Nice info thx and I agree totally it’s the best :D. I love MGSV camera work so much in GZ. It’s just so awesome, how first we follow XOF and then the camera starts to follow the patches down to Snake. A bit similar to the Quiet cutscene where camera follow her down to Mother Base.

      So darn beautiful 😀 and can’t wait to see more this camera technique in TPP!

      • MichaelPayneV

        And the good part is that someone like Kojima can do a Virtual Hand-Held Camera in a Video Game without going all shaky Cam like a lot of Gaming Directors end up when trying to go hand-Held.

    Pero, ¡¿que coño?!

    Solid Snake’s infatuated with ‘the battlefield’, heh.

  • proceeder

    Solid, the best Snake ever!

  • moto hellogoto

    Solid is my favorite character in the series and one of my favorite video game characters ever. I can’t wait to buy a ps3 again so I can replay these games.

  • the gaming guy jackal

    in 5th quote, “to leave behind a world no longer affected by his mistakes” im sorry but what? what “mistakes” did solid snake ever did? he dedicated his whole life, not even living it as a person to do his best to leave the world as it is after mgs1 when he joined philanthropy, he had no goal in life but just to do his best for it. to leave to its best. he was carrying out the bosses will, all she wanted to do is to leave the world to its best, unlike zero and big boss even skullface who were ought to change it. big boss understands it in the end. thats the point of it all.

    you forgot about kaz miller when he said
    Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg… and my arm… even my fingers. The body I’ve lost… the comrades I’ve lost… won’t stop hurting… It’s like they’re all still there. You feel it, too, don’t you? I’m gonna make them give back our past.”
