Theft Auto V Solid V: The Horned Snake aka Not Hayter Phantom Menace Pain isn’t anywhere near one iota of a release date and there’re already many David Hayter fans (myself included) who’re in an uproar about Kojima’s decision to replace Hayter with a completely new VA.
YouTube user theRealAnonymousRain made a video pleading his case to Mr. Kojima about David Hayter’s absence from
MGTAV MGSV. I gotta say, he does make some good points and I agree. Like the one about the Japanese market being able to retain the same Japanese VA for Snake in MGSV. It’s like Optimus Prime not being voiced by Peter Cullen! Where’s the love for the English speaking MGS fans? What’s up with that, Koj?
Hey listen, it’s not like I won’t get the game because the voice actor was replaced. I’m a big MGS/Hayter fan and have emotionally invested in the characters of its rich universe, especially Solid Snake/Big Boss. David Hayter’s voice performance was a huge factor in that. I’m still definitely getting this/these game(s) but I’ll be scrutinizing the hell outta the Rookie’s voice. In terms of MGS he’s probably no 10 year vet. AMIRITE?!
