>own creator is slowly disowning him as Big Boss becomes the true hero and face of the Metal Gear series

At least he had a bro in Otacon and people remember Snake as a hero after MGS4 (too bad Raiden wetting his pants about how cool he thinks Snake was was in MGR isn't canon) until Kojima makes a post-MGS4 Metal Gear where Big Boss is regarded as the best guy ever.

Snake got to spend his last moments living the civilian life he never had with his best bud otacon. John marston bled out in the sand at the feet of a corrupt government agent.

I would rather be snake.
Yeah but his waifu running off with the kid was all a ruse to fool the patriots and he had his own happy ending during the final cutscene of mgs4.

High impact sexual violence
His MGS1 outfit is the best in the series. Also, Hayter's acting was the best then too
I really fucking hate what they did with him in Rising and a bit of 4 as well
He can do the mgs1/2 snake voice just as well as he used to, believe it or not. I think it's the voice direction that's wack, or Hayter is doing it on purpose
nanomachines and ocelot are behind everything

original snake, big boss and shit is going on mission
and his mentor betrays america
she taught snake that mission is important
so he fights very, very disturbing guys and saves america
and he kills her
that's pretty much saddest moment in game
and then she didn't betrayed america
her mission was to get killed by snake for sake of preventing war
because in the beginning of mgs3 big red russian retarded pikachu shoot US nuke at his own base
and she had to die because she bring that nuke, snake killing her was kinda like "she really betrayed usa and we don't like her"
snake was sad after that
he didn't even shake hands with some important faggot
now watch metal gear stupid, part of mgs3 secret theater
okay, and then snake stop liking america
he made his own mercenary company
there should be peace walker in nutshell but fuck it, it's not important

here, for beginning - short version of mgs3.

oh fuck i forgot about most important thing: short version of mgs3 patriots, all of that philosophers legacy and shit.
screw it, just watch mgs3 somewhere.
I always thought Snake was referring Sunny.
Since clearly, she cared for him more than literally everyone else, even going as far to using herself as a human shield to keep snake from even touching him.
I think it was very heavily implied.

Equally hard life.

There should've been an alternate secret ending for MGS where that swallod pack of cigarettes wrapped in plastic gets destroyd in his belly and snake dies of nicotine poisoning.
He also got groped, tortured, and lost an eye by Volgin and Ocelot. Including in getting his ass kicked by The Boss in the virtuous mission and breaking a shit ton of bones

I'm pretty sure Snake was referring to his youth and how he couldn't live like he could.
Let me tell you about hard lives.
How? He gets a naive loli for a love interest. He's blessed.

Him and the empress weren't even dating.

Berserk had video games. So my vote goes to Guts.

Fox had it coming, though.
He was an evil little fucker that was brutal on the battlefield, and you forget that he killed Naomi's parents.

If Snake were half the little fucker that Fox was then I'd see your point.

I like how Big Boss is hushed though, but I feel Cygan or Doyle could have been a better choice.
No-one else can do Solid Snake though.
There should've been another secret ending where Snake meets Kojima.

And then Kojima kicks him in the dangly parts while laughing.

There's also the mgs1/2 digital graphic novels that only had english voice acting done fairly recently (like after mgs4) as further proof.
