Veteran voice actor Troy Baker, who will play the part of Ocelot in Metal Gear V: The Phantom Pain, has spoken of the “massive” size and scope of the game.
In an interview with Kinda Funny Games, he said: “I’m really excited and anxious to see how people look at this new Metal Gear… It may be the biggest game I’ve ever seen, just in terms of everything you can do, like, Skyrim looks like an afternoon play-pen next to it – it’s massive!”
Baker went on to pay tribute to Kiefer Sutherland’s work as the voice of Snake in Konami’s upcoming game, as well as the way he’s been dealing with fan criticism. He said: “I wanted to stand up and applaud the guy [at the VGAs], because the way he came out, the heart that he came out with, it’s just very contrite and gracious to all the fans. There was like this understanding underneath and, ‘look, I get it. You don’t want me to be Snake. That’s fine. Neither did I, but let me tell you what made me fall in love with it, and how I told my other friends about how important this story means to the world and to entertainment, period.’”
