Ok, so I just finished MGS3 today (first one I've finished in the series-oh, and it's one of the single greatest games I've ever had the pleasure to play, BTW), and I love the character of Big Boss.
However, I read the relationship between Big Boss and Solid Snake, and I have to ask-which one did you like more? I know that technically they're the same guy, but they have different personalities and whatnot.
I have to say, after completing MGS3 and seeing it all, I think I like Big Boss more. But then again, I haven't played all of MGS1 (can't find my freaking PS1 memory card.....probably gonna have to buy Twin Snakes if I ever find it) or MGS2.
