After playing the entire metal gear series (apart from Portable ops, the MXS2 games and the latest MGR) I am curious to know out of those of you who played it which installment of the series was your favourite.

For me, it would have to be MGS4, I loved the modern gameplay, epic cinematics, massive references to  previous games and the great storytelling.

MGS1 would have to be a close second but I did really like the rest of the games too.

Around the Network

I really enjoyed MGS: Peace Walker

Snake Eater.

Practically perfect in every possible way.


I haven't played Portable Ops & Peace Walker yet.

From those I have played, close call between 3 & 1. I picked 3 because the story and set-pieces were just slightly better, in my opinion.

3 > 4 > 1 > 2.

That being said all are so close to each other in enjoyment. Haven't played Peace walker yet. I think 1 and 3 have the best story lines, the backtracking in mgs1 always annoyed me, 4 was a bit too sad but had the best gameplay.

Around the Network

The first one was the only one the blew my mind back then. I played it some years ago on the PSP and it was barely unplayaple though.

Game of the year 2017 so far:

5. Resident Evil VII
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
3. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
2. Horizon Zero Dawn
1. Super Mario Odyssey


Peace Walker by a damn sight.

The first Metal Gear is the best, no doubt about it, it's one of the best blend of interesting complicated story and innovative and brillant gameplay. Snake Eater comes close too.

Guns of the Patriot is my least favorite of the series.

Signature goes here!

MGS3 is just pure perfection.

No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.
