Video Game Hero of the Month: August 2009 – Solid Snake


Perhaps one of the few video game characters to have survived 20+ years in the gaming world, Solid Snake is perhaps better known for the innovator if not the father of the modern Stealth Action genre. In his first game, Meta Gear, he played a quiet hero who was one his fist mission for the legendary FOXHOUND unit. He would later evolve into a collected and calm hero that we know and love. His obvious machismo, may make him seem like a clear cut meat head, but Snake has shown to have provided very logical and tactical insights of his mission, as well as the philosophical side of what he believes to be the human condition. As much as he is a badass killing machine, he has shown signs of regret and remorse for all the lives he has taken, showing that even the greatest warriors are also human even when doing an inhumane job.

Snake is probably one of the most well rounded characters out there, with brains and brawns who is not without his share of personal demons and flaws. A legendary warrior nonetheless.

    It’s true. Albert Wesker would one-hit KO his ass. But that’s not Snake’s fault. If Snake also had the T-Virus, among other viruses, he would pwn too…But still not as hard as Wesker, who beats women for fun I hear.

    First off. Wesker is a VILLAIN, not a hero. Secondly, Snake is the shit. Even with foxdie in him, basically every member of his family and the world out to get them, he still makes a crude sex joke and smokes a ciggerette. He would pwn then own wesker’s ass. He need a VIRUS to enhance him, that’s like steroids in Professional Sports. Tsk, that must account for his shrunken balls then. Tsk.

    Snake = owns and you know it.

    Wesker is a villain yes, but he’s still a hero because whatever he does, we all applaud with standing ovation.

    actually, how about we play a game called Wesker versus Snake? I’ll be Wesker, and you’ll be Snake, and we’ll have a boxing match next time we play cards 🙂

    How does that make sense? You don’t box outside weight classes foose. I’m like straw-weight, ur welter or lighweight. Besides, all I got to do is hit you in the nuts, foose. Lay off the beer man…-_-‘

    everyone agrees at my work that Albert Wesker is better after watching Mr. Wonderful on my phone. I couldn’t find any hardcore videos about Snake…

    *sigh* your an idiot, you know that? -_-‘ Every month it WILL be different. And for the last time: HE IS NOT A HERO.

    I’m really starting to get pissed off here. Play nice guys. I won’t ask again.

    Forgive me for being a thread necro, but I’d prefer his MGS1 incarnation here. I just think it looks more badass than any following incarnation.

    Delete this comment if something bad happens because of it. 😮
