Not sure. Shimerman is probably better and more consistent, but Hayter is near and dear to my heart

if it was just MGS1/2/4 Hayter it's an easier choice. MGS3 Hayter is questionable and Peace Walker Hayter is not good.

Shimerman

I respect Hayter's vocal endurance/decay and his delivery is not only iconic, but spot-on. But as others have said, his performance peaked early and is questionable at times. Still exceptional - there's a smarmy charm to Snake that can never be taken away, and he does really fantastic work whenever he plays Snake comedically - but Shimerman is an utterly commanding presence executed to near-perfection.

Shimerman for the big upset.

I still replay the og Bioshock from time to time, and I always halt the action when I find one of his radio recordings.
