Character Talk: Big Boss

“You Either Die A Hero, Or You Live Long Enough To See Yourself Become The Villain” Harvey “Two-Face” Dent in the Dark Knight

Oh boy, here is a big one. This is kind of a follow up to last Character Talk about the Boss. He first made his debut as the villain of original Metal Gear back in 1987 release wise.
