What was so wrong with smoking?

Yeah what's with all the smoking?! Give him a slice of pizza to play around with, as that was seriously cool!!

Because a Dante who smokes will drive more impressionable minds to smoking like Santa Claus did with the whole pipe thing.

Yeah, it had nothing to do with the fact that he was pushing 70 too.

He was only in his late 30s or early 40s age wise.
I forget what year MGS4 takes place in.

Solid Snakes looks were due to accelerated aging. Something they did during the cloning process.

No s***? I looked that up on Wikipedia. Apparently the game takes place in 2014,about 9 years after MGS and 5 years after MGS2. I have to admit, I've never played the game but when I saw MGS4's Snake, I just assumed he stopped a bridge game midway at his nursing home so he could come out of retirement for one last hurrah.

I don't understand where this "cool" stigma comes from. Like I have said, smoking is just something people do. Nothing lame about it, but nothing cool about it either. It's just an activity...

Dante is a character that was consciously designed. Unlike humans who smoke, Dante did not choose to smoke. Dante's character designer chose for him to smoke. Why did the designer choose for Dante to smoke? What was the purpose? A random character trait? "Ah, let's just make him smoke. Because, why not?" No, this Dante was designed with the intent of being cool and hip with young adults. This was stated in interviews. It's fairly easy to extrapolate.

If you don't understand why smoking has a "cool" or "fashionable" stigma attached to it, you should look into basic sociology studies. Related: look into "smoking in the 40s and 50s".


Hahaha you used the word "hip" :D

The Les Enfants Terible happened in the 1970s.
Only person actually pushing 70 or past 70 in MGS4 is Big Boss and well...RIP Big Boss
