|I'd buy that for a dollar!|
|Kirby + Solid Snake = too much awesome|
|Memes are just delightful|
Anyway, Snake's pretty much the American James Bond as he fights a veritable rouges' gallery of terrorists be it FoxHound or his father taking on Cobra Unit, has the tech helper of Moneypenny in Otacon. Colonel Campbell reminds me a ton of Colonel Trautman from Rambo as well. Come to think of it, Snake has the Rambo thing down pat....holy hell, Snake essentially is Bond, Rambo, John McClane and Commando all wrapped into one. His original design from the NES cart was noneother than Kyle Reese of Terminator fame and his face in MGSolid was modeled after Christopher Walken from the Deer Hunter...You see??? Take any awesome hero from your upbringing and Solid Snake is simply a stone's throw away. The Kevin Bacon of ass kickers, if you will. As for instilling patriotism and making you feel like your saving America, The Metal Gear series does all of this pretty well too, I mean Raiden doesn't come close to Solid but he does take on Solidus right under Old Glory at Wall Street. Between Big Boss and Solid Snake, they save Alaska, stop an all out Nuclear War numerous times, win the Distinguished Service Cross, take on an evil twin (and wins), rescue the girl (or Otacon) and look great in tactical camo. His cynicism only makes him more of a realistic, strong yet flawed character...which is parallel in what it means to be a real American hero.
|Some humbling roots, Mr. Snake.|
