I really just made this thread, so I can show Spiker that his opinion is wrong.

I liked 2 a lot as well. I liked where they have gone with 4 in terms of "universe"... I still have yet to play 3, so it is hard to comment on it (yes, it is in my pile of shame, still shrink wrapped even).

I'll give you 2. I'll give you 3 or 2. If someone picks 1 or 4, I'll argue. I love the shit out of 1, but compared to how much they improved the game in 2 and 3 it's hard to put it up there with those. I think a lot of people say 1 because they like the story the most and their just nostalgic for it. As for 4, it WOULD be the king if the game wasn't so fucking uneven. By all means it certainly played the best, and if the entire game was like Act 2 it would have easily been number 1.

But seriously, Koji Pro should be absolutely fucking ashamed of themselves for putting out MGS4 in the state it was in. 20 min INSTALLS for each Chapter? Cut me a break. Shameful.

voted for 3. its is the most balanced and well thought-out one out of all of them, and i've played all of them except for 4 at least three times each. shit i think i played the first and second one like 5 times each. the 3rd just offered far more variety of locales, paths through a particular screen, and ways to avoid/dispatch the enemy. it also has one of the best boss fights ever with The End.

i'm not knocking 2 either. i love 2, and i think it was one of the most ballsy moves you could've done by taking snake out of the player's control and giving you raiden. creatively speaking, doing so also served the game's narrative so it wasn't just a move to elicit headlines on game blogs.

four played the best, but i think i agree with phil that it is the most uneven out of all of them. it has moments of brilliance only to be followed up with moments of nothing. however, at the end of it i felt very satisfied despite some clumsy narrative at the end.

i <3 MGS very,very much.

Yes, if you look at them in the broadest sense, they share similarities, but nobody was reading my mind or using telekinesis on my controller in MGS2.

True. They also didn't hide a codec number on the back of the game box and make you put a controller up to your arm to sooth it. Fuck that game was awesome.

However, MGS2 trolled the fucking shit out of you, that should count for something. Hahahahaha.

i really should play MGS4 again. like i've said before i've played them all multiple times over the years except that one. enough time has passed that i think i could get a more level headed view of it as a whole. it's now an old friend that i need to pay a visit to.

was it ever explained why it had 20 min load times? seriously. was it just shitty coding or something? because, no other PS3 game that i know of does that.

Most likely a case of shitty coding. They had their excuses about how it maximized the disc and shit like that, but it's just shitting coding and it's unacceptable. So much so that they haven't even bothered to port the game elsewhere nor even be bothered to make a Substance/Subsistence version.

I bought MGS4 years after it came out (sometime in early-mid 2011 I think) and I fucking hated it so much. To be fair it isn't really my style of game but holy shit do I hate it. I never really played any of the others although I messed around a bit with the Gamecube one at my buddy's place.

Don't worry, you're not the only one that doesn't like MGS. And if 3 is the best, I don't think I'll ever want to try the others.

Yous guyses opinions are wrong.

That said, I could see hating MGS if I started with 4. It's not a good starter one. Three on the other hand is a perfect starter.

the MGS games are a different type of game than just running around shooting everything in sight. starting with the 4th really would be a bit out there.

I've never played 4 so I can't include it, but my list is 3-2-1. Snake Eater was awesome and MGS2 had the fake colonel going nuts toward the end of the game.
