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.

Kojima didn't develop TTS I believe he was a supervising producer similar to Rising right now

Ah yes that is true. Silicon Knights made Twin Snakes. It was sub-par for me. I mean, I was waiting for MGS3:SE and I was an expert in MGS1. The game became far too easy with the MGS2-esque controls. The cut scenes were cheesy. That was largely due to the facial animations.

I really want to hear a rationale for choosing Portable Ops. Just to humour me-XD

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).

He was sort of behind the cheesy cutscenes though.  Kitamura's team originally did the cinemas more faithfully to MGS1, Kojima rejected it and asked them to differentiate everything and make it more over the top.

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.

Sure.  



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.
