Metal Gear Rising is the best game of the Metal Gear series.
Considering that MGS Rising is a spin-off and not even in the main series, I think what you're really saying is that the Metal Gear series is not for you from a gameplay perspective. You enjoyed Rising, which is a great action game, more than you enjoyed any of the other Metal Gear games which are great stealth games. Personally, Metal Gear Solid 3 is one of the best games I've ever played, it has by far one of the most memorable boss fights I've ever experienced, and the story literally made me pause to think about my own values when I was done beating the game. Rising is on the next tier for me in terms of the games I've enjoyed the most. Basically, there are 8 games I gave a personal score of 9/10, and Rising is on that list, but there are 9 games where my personal score is 9.5/10 (or higher), and MGS3 is on that list. Yes, I actually keep a spreadsheet of all the games I've ever beaten, how long they took me and what my personal score is.
These are my personal tastes, of course, and I think my point is you stated your own personal taste as an absolute fact. That may not have been so jarring if we were comparing games in the same genre (stealth games), but the fact that you're referring to a spin-off that is in a different genre sounds like your preference is more about the action genre than the relative quality of the different entries in the stealth genre.
