I’ve been missing Snake recently, so I asked you all to ‘shop up some information about what the Metal Gear protagonist has been up to recently. You didn’t disappoint, and now I have a lot of Snakes to display.

I’ve got a lot of respect for Snake. After all, he’s a guy who can’t catch a break, and it seems like every week there’s another super soldier or ghost wizard who is out for his blood. It’s a family problem, of course, given that his dad went through some of the same problems, but several of you dragged him out of retirement specifically for my entertainment.

Our winner this week is ChefRobertIrvine, who puts Snake in the video for the a-ha classic “Take On Me.” The video is all about traveling to a wonderful new world where you can be enchanted by men with mullets so, well, I guess Snake probably belongs there. Congrats to ChefRobertIrvine!

We have lots of honorable mentions, though, because many of you had some excellent ideas about what Snake is up to these days. You should read through the comments of the original post to see all the entries.
