    Solid snake had no parents. He was a clone, or rather genome solder.
  • tiff-tiff86
    Then Snake clearly made that story to the bartender up to hide the [i]real[/i] reason he carries that box around!

    If that was the story he made up to hide the real reason, do we want to know the real reason?
  • tiff-tiff86
    I doubt we'll ever know...

    I doubt we ever WANT to know.

    Awesome vid, Doug!

    My guess is he's afraid the NES games will come after him. XD

    Ironically, the NES games are what gave him that box in the first place.

    (Stares blankly at screen) Wow. That has to be the- the- I can't even- Wow- The greatest story to explain why Snake carries around a box. I didn't think you'd be able to top the last Video Game Confession, but you sir are a genius.
  • knuckles896
    I'm actually guessing that maybe the fact that Snake *is* a clone is meant as something of an inside joke. Anyone who knows the story of Metal Gear Solid knows the story is bull, and the joke becomes something based on the reactions of the Bartender. I take it as Snake just making up a story just to mess with the bartender for knocking his security blanket.
  • Sakanero  - and.
    and he killed his own father.
  • animeniac2
    He killed his father twice........and then he actually died in front of him
  • NCscritic
    yeah, he was a clone, but he still had to be raised by someone, didn't he?

    Very funny, I do get that it's a joke, but again got to add my 2 cents.

    Snake lying about his back-story is altogether an in-joke because his back-story has changed dramatically throughout the series, especially since the NES titles. His joke about his name being Plisken is an awesome example.

    He was raised by many people. Says so himself. :gah: And even if you're a clone someone has to feed you, clothe you, and teach you how to talk. They weren't 'The Sixth Day' incubated for crying out loud.
  • ThatTeenWithTheShades  - Why Must We Be Nerds
    He Also Had 2 "Brothers", Liquid Snake And Solidus Snake

    Quick question from someone who's never played Metal Gear: I know there's Solid Snake and Liquid Snake, but was there ever Gaseous Snake? :snicker:
  • ThePinkKirby
    avatar
    There was a third clone but his name ended up being Solidus Snake.
  • bugman113
    avatar
    then the person he's a clone of saw that and they put that memory in snake.
  • ralphy8663
    but you can say that bog boss and eve are his parents
  • cousinedd
    he actually did have parents Big Boss and Eva
  • Gamesfreak27
    avatar
    that is true but he has the memorys of big boss who did have parents so he thinks that they were his experiences =D
  • BioRage1920  - Being an even bigger nerd
    I do recall him mentioning a mother in one of the games for the MSX
  • zepher
    except hes a clone of he big boss born from the womb of eva aka big mama along with liquid.
  • Laharl
    avatar
    yes, he is a clone, but he is a clone of the Snake that appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3. Who did have parents. They didn't say anything about parents in that game, but seeing as how that Snake was a real person, it is to be assumed that he has real parents

    ... I think the murderer was Ask That Guy.
  • whatever42
    avatar
    I second this assertion. Either it's him, or Bennett the Sage. Only those two could committ such heinous, but strange actions. I'm leaning toward Bennett personally. After all, he came up with things that [i]scared AskThatGuy.[/i] :scared:

    Seriously though, nice to see another episode for this show. That story was so horrible and ridiculous, it had me laughing almost the entire time. Every time "it gets worse," I laughed even louder. Great job Doug. =D

    well if it was, there would have been a strong smell of onions
  • ralphy8663
    no it was tommy wiseau
  • cousinedd
    He did nAAAAAAAt! O hai Mark
  • Paulson
    this was like a video game version of Four Yorkshiremen.
  • j03b0b0fd00m
    wow 4 people posted in the time it took me to log in.

    I was about to say the same thing; Snake had no parents. He is a clone of Big Boss.

    Really, though, He just likes his box.
  • animeniac2
    he inherited the box from big boss!
  • Redrally
    Well Big Boss was his 'father' for providing the genetic material and Big Mama gave birth to him.

    Is it just me or does the robber look a bit like Otacon?
  • smokeynighttrain
    avatar
    I think it looked more like liquid....a masculine liquid.
  • Jackass Mask
    This one fell flat for me. I guess I have just played to much of this game. I know I should take it in stride as a joke. Oh well.

    I mean, Snake's entire story is really uncovering his back story. He's like Konami's own personal Wolverine in that sense.
  • Unluckiest7

    I have to agree with FullmetalNinja25 this is made to just be funny. Just don't think about the episode other than the jokes. Forget about snakes history and just enjoy Mr.Walkers story. Or in this case Dominics story.

    Bennett Sage helped you with the insanity of this didn't he?
  • Reaprar

    I love you doug, and everything you do.. but it kinda makes it hard to enjoy the video for anyone that understands his backstory.


    I mean it was funny, sure! but kinda doesn't make sense and is prety distracting.
  • Barlza  - It gets worse.
    Awesome. =D

    And, yeah, it DID seem like Otacon...
  • Ninja Delusion
    Hm...

    Big Boss?.....

    Thought you were gonna make a Snake obcessive compulsive fapping/peeping tom Tactical Rape Action type of thing out of it; or perhaps some sort of repressive behavior.

    *Jungle boogey*
  • novice snob
    Well that was morbid. o_O

    Poor Snake, he had a tough life right from the start. T_T
  • Unluckiest7
    avatar
    I wonder what he could do with someone like crash bandicoot or the tails doll o_O
  • Sintra4  - VGC
    I think it would be pretty interesting if he did some old-school adventure game characters like Guybrush Threepwood, or Leisure Suit Larry. Lots of potential for characters like that.
  • ThatGirlWhoDances
    Dang, no wonder Snake carries around the box.

    Great video!

    Wait a second here... Uncle Tim wasn't a liar! He really did kinda meet Solid Snake... oh poor old crazy uncle Tim. Never did like it when he babysat.
  • 159asmos
    like everyone is saying besides the fact that it has nothing to do with snakes actual story [b](WITCH IS FINE!)[/b] it was another [b]amazing episode!!![/b]
  • Arnuma
    avatar
    For anyone crying foul saying snake was a clone, he was still giving birth to and was raised by (and I'm quoting the wiki here) "a variety of foster parents." so even in obsessive cannon it can make perfect sence.
  • Stingrayx00

    another awesome VGC =D

    I lost it at the nunchucks part. Great as always, Doug!

    I luv it but i wish the piano was real and not 8-bit
  • 159asmos
    [b][u]Cloud from ff7 that would be grate!!!!!!!!!!!!![/u][/ b] =D
  • Lëzen
    As much as I resent the way FF7 overshadows its predecessors, I can't say I'd mind seeing Cloud getting ripped on for his general emo-ness.

    [color=green]Can't come between a man and his box...wait.[/color]
  • gaaralee1234

    Alas, Solid, I hardly knew ye.
    ...But now I know too much
    The confession was more about a killer who was messed up in the head than solid.
    Nunchucks? Really?
  • BabyImplosion
    avatar
    i liked the drawings of the killer having such a blast with snake's dead parents.

    but it still is hard to get over the fact that you seem to not really know about snake's origins.

    its like you pick out a notable video game character, ignore anything about them, and add your own story to them.

    well, except the connection of the box.

    maybe if you knew more about snake you'd have some jokes actually related to the series?

    but yes, anyways, drawings of the killer made this episode enjoyable
  • Bentley2210
    avatar
    Either Doug knows or does not know the origins of Snake. If he does then you see that Snake is telling this story to cover up the fact that he doesn't want people to know the real reason why.
    If not, then you can take it that way! :drunk:
  • Dundore77
    Solid snake Did have parents. Big Boss and Big Mamma (eva from MGS3) Just because he is technically a clone doesn't make him a test tube grown child. Eva was his natural mother Solid and Liquid were born from Eva's womb just they were genetically changed in the Les Enfants Terribles project so Solid would have all Big Boss's dominant genes while liquid would get the recessive genes.

    Pretty funny and explains a lot of things about Snake's character from a psychological stand-point...Anyway I am still surpriced that there is no Simon Belmont- I mean you think that the whole "jumping around in a leather skirt" bit would make for some awsome jokes.
  • mumbls  - WTF?
    avatar
    o_O o_O o_O o_O :eyebrow: That has to be the most implausibly morbid thing ever. I agree with anyone who says that it was made up to detract from questions.

    GREAT VIDEO MR.DOUG WALKER IT WAS SO FUNNY XD
    could you do Luigi next ???

    please !!!!!! :nuu:
  • themrginger  - Good but could have been better........
    avatar
    I liked it but not nearly as much as the other ones it seemed like it was too Dark even though it is part of the joke it seemed like you were trying a little too hard for laughs. Also I think it was too much about the robber and not enough about Solid Snake like you could have gone through snakes life and made fun of just how Absurde some of it is. But hey you get what you get some times Still good though man keep up the good work =D
