MGS1, MG, MG2: Solid Snake, MGS2, MGS4, then MGS3: Subsistence. I liked all of them a lot, though, and I was never disappointed.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for me. People complained about the story because it was confusing, but I loved the story because of how much depth it had, and how it opened up all sorts of discussion on forums. MGS2 made for the best forum discussion I've ever experienced. People also complain about Raiden, but Raiden turned Snake into such a badass that I never cared. Yeah, I wish I could've spent more time as Snake, but the trade-off was worth it, Snake became a real legend after MGS2.


MGS is meh, the gameplay is way too primitive for me to play and enjoy nowadays, the only reason to play it is for the story.

MGS: Twin Snakes is probably my second favorite. The boss battles are a lot easier than MGS when you don't play on Extreme, but so long as you ramp up the difficulty, the game is a blast. I loved the over-the-top cutscenes, they were purposefully ridiculous, it's like a parody of old games and how they are generally remembered better than they really are.

MGS3: Snake Eater was lame for me, I never liked it and Subsistence came too late to repair my image of it. Between the top-down camera and the nuisance of changing your camouflage all the fucking time, I couldn't enjoy it. In my opinion, pressing the start button all the time is not good game design.

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?



Currently playing: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, NBA2k11, Metal Gear Solid, Picross 3d

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

Probably the original. And I mean the original original, not that shitty GC remake.

Sad that Ghost Babel got ignored entirely, it was 100% awesome and easily more deserving of a listing than Portable Ops. Though really, it's not technically a "Solid" game.



My mind is blown, MGS is currently winning. I just. . . wow.

OT: Yes number 1 is the best, it really was something to behold for the time I imagine. I just played it for the first time last year and it was still absolutely amazing, something I can't say for another big title from that year.

MGS1



I have a man-crush on Solid Snake, plus I loved the experiences that were MGS and MGS4. The wow factor was definitely highest for me when playing MGS1 and MGS4. My favourite stories also were MGS1 and MGS4. Probably my two favourite games of all time are MGS and MGS4.

I am definitely not surprised that MGS1, MGS4, AND MGS3 are leading the poll. They are all great games- I just give the slight edge to 1 and 4 because I prefer Snake over Big Boss, and the stories of MGS and MGS4 over MGS3. Not to say MGS3 is a bad game...



Human contact, the final frontier.

MGS3 - in terms of plot and how the narration of the story went was something i liked very much. Game play wise it was good however the changing of the camo was a pain at times

MGS4 - one solid gameplay i've seen, always respect it. in terms of plot or story narration not so much but still not as good as 3.



How is MGS4 loosing?!!!!!

EDIT:

and MGS2....wow only 8 votes
