Seriously. It's awful. I can barely get through the opening to MGS4. 
 
If i met someone with this voice in real life I would direct them to a throat doctor.

Duh, in MGS4 he's an old man who smokes like a chimney. Of course he sounds haggard as hell.
 
PS: David Hayter is awesome.

I liked it in MGS and MGS2, but for some reason found it a bit too much on the gravelly side with MGS4.

Yes. You are probably the only person who hates Snake's voice. I don't even like the MGS series, but I love Snake's voice.

I understand why people might dislike it, but I can't imagine it being any other way.

Personally I think Snakes voice suits him perfectly.
 
Although I prefer David Hayters performance in Snake Eater the most.

Weird.
 
Btw it's not the gravely quality that puts me off, it's the fact that he sounds like he's taking a shit 24/7.

Well, I can get why you might not like it, but it totally suit's Snake's character. David Hayter is a really good voice actor in my opinion. 
Now, here are some voices that are REALLY worth hating: 
-Ramon Salazar (Resident Evil 4) 
-Scout (Team Fortress 2) 
-Cole McGrath in the inFAMOUS 2 Trailer 
-Pretty much everyone from the Star Fox series

For such a ridiculous plot, you need a ridiculous voice. His matches perfectly.

I'm not as much of a fan of his voice as I am of his character. Snake is a much more well written character than most video game characters.

Snake is a chain smoker, his voice is supposed to be a little rough.

David Hayter is the only one who can do the voice for Snake, anybody else would ruin the character.

I haven't played any of the MGS games but I don't think Snake's voice is bad.

Even Kojima himself has said that he likes the english voices better than the Japanese ones, Snake included.
