Rank the Metal Gear Games

1. Metal Gear Solid - Had pretty much everything you cuould ask from an MG game. Deep story, moving characters, plot twists, awesome environments and boss battles, music...it had it all. Also had my favorit eending in the series.

2. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty - Often attacked for starring Raiden and its plot that requires one to think. No doubt you have to be into the story to appreciate this game but as I do love the story of the series, I love this game. The areas outside the Big Shell were gorgeous and I generally liked the new characters (Solidus and Vamp mostly though)

3. Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake - Played it with my copy of Subsistence. It had many of the elements that made MGS1 so amazing. It's cast of characters and the story told throughout the game was awesome. All culminating in Big Boss' speech of his war-controlled vision of the world.

4. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater - To contrast with MGS2's twists and turns, MGS3 was probably amde to be very simplistic. There were no scenes that made you scratch your head (except when the giant flaming head came after you i guess) but it still told a deep story of how Big Boss became Big Boss. I also loved the underlying James Bond vibe they gave it.

5. Metal Gear - A fun game but lacking the storyheavy depth of its sequels. I sitll enjoyed it.

6. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - Lacking a thick story actually beats this tripe. Meryl marrying a character who originally had no place in the series other than as a comedic foil who shit himself all the time? Talk about kicking in the face the epic ending of MGS1.

Never played PO.

[Edit] My mistake.

Also is this going by just the main console games or are we taking all the handheld and side games into account?

Metal Gear Solid 4

The way it concluded the plot was flawless. Gameplay was given a much needed overhaul. Great Multiplayer bundled with MGOnline. Everything about this game screams polished.

Metal Gear Solid

The first MGS I played and one of the most memorable experiences I've enjoyed in gaming. Clever storyline. Gameplay was nice at its time, but it had some inherent flaws. Never the less this game is a classic that set the standard for the rest in the series.

Metal Gear Solid 2

Eventhough the story had flaws it didn't keep me from enjoying the game. The gameplay was a nice upgrade over the original. Graphics were phenomenal for its time(though most mgs games have that trait)

Metal Gear Solid 3

My least favorite Metal Gear. The story took a turn for the super natural...I found the Cobra unit to be ridiculous at first, but they later grew on me. Playing as a young Big Boss was nice, but they could have made him more original instead or pretty much copy/pasting Solid Snake. Better graphics than MGS2 ...however the gameplay was tedious.

MG Portable Ops

Good story. Big Boss had an identity of his own here. Graphics for the PSP are quite good. Unfortunately the controller layout kept me from finishing this game.

---

Never played the first 2 Metal Gears nor Metal Gear Acid 1 & 2.

I'm afraid you're wrong my friend. The real sequel of Metal Gear was Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

Snake's revenge was just a cash in. It played poorly and Kojima doesn't even aknowledge it.

Considering I don't like most MGS games outside of 4, I'll go with 4.

As other people have said, the gameplay needed to be better and becoming more westernized helped it alot. It was really fun. The cutscenes were pretty cool also. I don't like the last level though. They took a wicked paced game with stealth and small encounters and gave me respawned enemies and all action. In my opinion, the final boss encounter was annoying, and the ending cut scene was a bore. And seriously, the story near the end was awful, in my opinion.

1. MGS4 - Awesome graphics, decent storyline, and overall a good shooter/stealth game.

2. MGS - The trendsettah! The 1st MGS game I played. Great storyline, graphics were ahead of its time. Only con is you can't move while crouching. Great.. just great.


Haven't played the others, and probably won't play them evar.
So meh.
