MGS4: Guns of the Patriots was an amazing experience the first couple times I played it, but when it comes to replaying it, I can't stand the game. Drebin is totally unnecessary, the bosses suck because they have no character whatsoever and are annoying with their poorly acted screams, crying, and laughing, the ending SUCKS, and there's very little room for interpretation. I rated it a 10/10 after I played it twice, but now I feel like it's a solid 8/10. It also infuriated me that you could have about 9 or 10 items equipped for easy access, but only 5 weapons. WTF?

I think MGS4 could've been polished out so much more. I don't even know where to begin.

Kojima would've been able to put out a complete version of the game if Sony would've allowed him to release it on two Blu Ray discs like it should've been.

I don't think he did fill up 50 GB.

 

But one thing he could've polished out is the stealth gameplay as you said. I need an incentive to use the tools he's given, because you can breeze through the game without using them. The game engine could've been better too.

 

There is so much that could've been fixed. But I really can't be bothered to write them down. The same goes for MGO. It's flawed in so many ways, especially the body mechanics. The idea and execution of the online play and features is brilliant. But technical blunders really tainted the game.

He couldn't because Sony told him not to. If he did he would've made the Blu Ray Disc seem pointless for ambitious devs leaving multiple discs to still be an option. Sony didn't want this, so they told him not to add and cut him off at one Blu Ray disc.

do you have a link or proof of Sony telling Kojima/Konami what they can do with "their game" ?

I voted for MGS but they should have had an option for Twin Snakes it my preferred version. Great story with MGS2 graphics.

I didn't include Twin Snakes because it was a remake. Plus, a lot of people thought the game's cut scenes were cheesy, as Kojima did not use MGS2 graphics, instead he experimented with different graphics.

MGS1 is itself really just a remake though, of Metal Gear 2.

Honestly, I think Twin Snakes would've been a better option than Portable Ops (which isn't even a full MGS).

MGS2 is itself just a remake though, of Metal Gear Solid which itself is a remake of Metal Gear 2

TTS is not canon, MGS1 is, the poll is about the main saga, which should include MG and MG2 (MSX2 versions) but the OP decided to leave them out, so PO should be there

The canon diverges.  MG2, Snake's Revenge, MGS1, Twin Snakes and Ghost Babel are all essentially "alternate timelines" following MG1.  MG2 and MGS1 literally can't exist in the same canon, though I'm not sure if Kojima ever gave a preference for one or the other.  

the canon does not diverge, the official canon released by Konami on PSN includes MG1, MG2, MGS, MGS2, MGS3, MGS:PO, and MGS4, although the English translation contains mistakes its canon, and it does not include MG1(NES), Snakes Revenge, Ghost Babel, Acid, Twin Snakes, Comic Book mini series etc.  and explain your last sentence more

MGS2 is my favorite and the first I played. I really wasn't expecting such a thrilling and awe inspiring game. I couldn't turn it off and the plot twists at the end were cool. I didn't mind playing as Raiden because I didn't know anything of Snake. MGS3 was very good as well. Never played MGS 1 for ps1. I bought MGS4 but haven't gotten around to finishing it. Not sure why, the overall feel for the game and less need for stealth maybe? I'm sure I'll finish it one of these days.

You have a good point. If you didn't play MGS1, chances are that you liked Raiden and you probably liked the game a lot. Even the people who beat MGS1 liked MGS2, but not nearly as much because of Raiden, Rose, and the more narrative approach to the game. Plus, Solidus Snake was not nearly as great/memorable of a villain when compared to Liquid Snake or Liquid Ocelot (MGS4). 

 

@Anarchy West- Metal Gear was not included as it was not a Metal Gear Solid game. 

the "Solid" part of Metal Gear Solid means the transition to 3D as the series started out 2D, Metal Gear 1 and 2 are still canon although they have been retconned to death they are still canon. Metal Gear 2 is also a favorite among the elite Metal gear saga fans

That's the first time I heard about that, but why would it become obsolete? It's not like developers have made any big games to this day.

 

May I ask where you got this info from, though?



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

You have MGS and MGS1, which are the same games. Probably just a typo

I know that. But I wanted to compare the 3D games. Why? They are a lot of people in their twenties who didn't have A NES growing up and they didn't buy MGS3: Subsistence. Also, they are only so many spots I could fill out. If I were to add MG and MG2, I would have to kick out one MGS game, which I decided not to do.

Now this is going to be pretty sad, but I finally beat MGS4:GOP on The Boss Extreme. It was definitely a challenge. To anyone complaining about MGS4 being too easy (the people who do generally beat it on Solid Normal or worse and say it was easy), try MGS4 on The Boss Extreme or at the very least, Big Boss Hard.
