Hideo personally wanted the cutscenes to look the way they did, which seems pretty clear to me that Hideo Kojima believes Snake is capable of performing everything he did in TTS. "Kojima has told a story in several interviews about riding the train home and running into one of the staffers working on Snake's Revenge, and being asked to rejoin them and help make an authentic sequel to Metal Gear.

Locking the page may be a wise decision. [88] In 2007, ScrewAttack ranked him as the sixth "coolest" character in video games.

Solid Snake has appeared in a number of other games, including other Konami games, and more unusually, under license in games developed and published by other companies, such as Sony and Nintendo. [75] Snake was one of the characters easiest to draw by Shinkawa as he notes that his appearance is consistent despite suffering minor changes across the games. Harada states this was a prank as many fans believed it was a hint for a possible usage of the character as downloadble content. I'll tell you then. [99][100][101] A comparison between Solid Snake's and Big Boss's characters was made by IGN in article "Stars Thunderdome: Snake vs. Big Boss.

Snake's voice actor is named David Hayter y'know, and knowing the MGS series' uncanny habit of breaking the fourth wall, I was sure that wasn't canon, but instead Snakes' voice actor talking through him somehow for an endgame joke. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:30, 21 November 2008 (UTC), We could say that at the end of Guns of The Patriots he quits after at least 19 years of doing it, that would be something. Additionally, there's no source to support the claim that Snake was intended to look more ragged in MGS2; this is easy to infer, but not sourced. The Phantom Pain also shows that his low-polygon model from Metal Gear Solid can be an alternate outfit for Venom Snake after transferring the save data from Ground Zeroes. [62] Kojima later described Snake's role in the original Metal Gear as the "player's presence", contrasting the defined personality acquired in Metal Gear Solid. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:14, 6 May 2008 (UTC), I don't remember any evidence that Big Boss is part Japanese or part Mongolian.

While I'm not suggesting to turn this article into a fictional Solid Snake biography, I think it would interesting to show the reader how the character progressed from a typical silent protagonist with no backstory to a fully realized character in Metal Gear Solid. Any additional extras, and the answer to whether Snake really does get to do a Tony Hawk, remain secret until the final version is complete (if you're really desperate to see Solid Snake on a skateboard you might want to check out his cameo appearance in Evolution Skateboarding in the meantime) but it's impossible to imagine that if you're a Metal Gear fan you won't enjoy this. We already have one image illustrating how Snake is based on 70s/80s action heroes, so the first image isn't needed. Hideo Kojima makes a habit of referencing his previous work.

Zidane tribal (talk) 17:50, 13 June 2009 (UTC), I'm not normally big on those things but this article is slightly confusing without a character bio - bits of the article suggests he's a person and other bits suggest he was created?

"[95] IGN also remarked their rivalry, saying "Few rivalries in games have spanned as massive and confusing a timeline as Solid Snake and Liquid Snake". [116] Hayter's performance was called one of the best ones in gaming as well as one of the character's most recognizable traits. There was a point where both character's life bars appear at once. Konami's Evolution Skateboarding features Snake and Raiden as hidden characters, as well as two stages set in the Big Shell (the skateboarding minigame in Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance is a demo of Evolution Skateboarding composed exclusively of these elements). Can anyone add this to the article? It's obviously a milspec 1911 (and will be identified as such in the game, I'm willing to bet).

It was filled with the joy of Considered to be one of the most popular protagonists in the video game industry, Snake has been acclaimed by critics, with his personality and both Ōtsuka's and Hayter's voice acting being noted as primary factors of the character's appeal.
