Seems like everywhere I look, all I see is people yelling and crying over David Hayter not voicing Big Boss this time around. As someone who has played and loves the MGS series, I have no problem with David Hayter not playing Big Boss. Love him as Solid and Naked Snake, but he should have been gone after Guns of the Patriots. Furthermore(bring on the hate, if you haven't already) I'm excited that Kiefer Sutherland is playing Big Boss in Phantom Pain.
Am I the only MGS fan who doesn't have a problem with Hayter not voicing BB?
No, you are not the only one. People love to be bitching around for everything. I know that Kojima must have had a good reason for this. Kiefer Sutherland may have a different voice but it still very similar to David Hayter, not a big difference for me, it's almost the same "style" that fits Snake.
Anyway, true MGS fans will buy this game, regardless about the voice change of Snake. If you see some people whining too much about this saying stuff like "I'm not buying", then you can be sure they are:
1.- Trolls (poor attepmt, probably xbox fanboys burned because they never had the chance of playing MGS4)
2.- Stupid kids in general... because again people who are fans of the series won't care about a simple voice change. And if they weren't fans at all in any way, then they wouldn't have any reason to be used to the voice of david hayter anyway. You see, they contradict themselves alone LOL.
I don't have a problem with someone else voicing Snake. So far I barely notice the difference. I can understand how people could have a legitmate issue with that though. As an example consider the difference between Cyborg Ninja MGS PS1 and Cyborg Ninja MGS Nintendo. The original MGS Ninja was significantly better.

While I would certainly prefer David Hayter to play the role, no I don't have a problem with it. In fact it kind of makes sense as Big Boss is getting older and we know from MGS4 that his voice eventually changes. Personally though, I would have gone with John Cygan, both in this game and as Big Boss in MGS4.
