What happened to the gruffness? Kiefer doesn't sound like he's on a dangerous mission, he sounds like he's going camping or something. It's like he didn't even listen to David Hayter's voice for inspiration before going into recording. He somehow manages to make Snake sound younger, despite being 10 years older since we last saw him.
Now I know there may be a possible explanation for this. Snake's been in a coma for 9 years. Obviously, he hasn't touched a cigar in all that time. Maybe this is his "normal", clean voice? No... that doesn't make sense because he has the same voice in Ground Zeroes which takes place just one year after Peace Walker.
Or, y'know, Kiefer just screwed up. I haven't really determined which one it is yet.
He sounds fine, he doesn't need to sound the same as Hayter. Hayter's Old Snake and PW Big Boss were awful. I don't know if Hayter just can't do the voice as well anymore, or he was trying WAY to hard but he's obviously losing the touch. Kiefer sounded fine to me, people really need to just get over it.
