I've only ever played the original MGS, the original version, and I thought it was pretty sucky and had a nonscensical story, but I suppose at the time it would have been pretty awesome given what had come before. Hopefully, the more up to date games will show what the series is actually capable of once I get around to them.
That's the BEST GAME OF ALL TIME you're talking about there.
There isn't even a hint of 'arguably', genuine belief right there? Madness.
The games are good but have aged badly. Having played just Mgs2 in this collection, probably brings my total number of play thoughts of the game, across formats to 5 or so, it really is nostalgia driving this beast. After the latest play through, I had no urge whatsoever for 3 or peace walker,
(never played them) and I've moved on to other games.
When the Mgs wave was riding high, these were great games for the time, I just really don't think Mgs2 stands up well today. I'm struggling to see the love for it, as a stand alone game today, judged by today's standards?!
