Ps1 MGS is still the best game out of that bizarre series, and I love the accents. They're the best part of the game, that gives it flavor, spice.

Nobody was ever outraged or paid attention till the change happened

Yeah, there was no outrage. It was simply explained that when they did the voice acting for Twin Snakes (and MGS4) they didn't think her having an Asian accent made any sense so they changed it.
