From Best to worst:

1. Metal Gear Solid- Gameplay may not have aged well (what game from that gen has?) but the level design, mechanics, story and boss fights all fit together perfectly.

2. Metal Gear Solid 3- The story, the setting, the ending, the boss fights! Just an absolutely incredible game.

3. Metal Gear Solid 4- Good gameplay, great level design with an incredible first two chapters. Way too many cut-scenes though.

4. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes- A good game held back by the fact it's only a Prologue and only has a single area to explore, albeit, repeatedly.

5. Metal Gear Solid 2- Overly convoluted plot although had some hidden depth to it. I didn't feel it really pushed any major boundaries in the way the first did but a solid game nonetheless.

6. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker- This was OK, had some good gameplay but held back by its portable hardware. The base building mechanic was a good idea though.

7. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops- A decent attempt to bring the stealth gameplay to portable. For an MGS game though, I think most could give this one a miss.

I suspect Phantom Pain will be at the better end of this list.
