Metal Gear Solid 2 I haven't played in a while but I remember the great graphics and the great tanker level with Snake. I hated that it was the only time you played him during the game. I didn't hate Raiden's guts like some people but I thought being able to play as Snake was way cooler. The biggest gripe I had was that the story took so many twists that at times you could have no idea what was going on.

The third I feel took the best of the first two (simple story of MGS 1, Graphics and interaction of MGS2) and put it in the best setting possible which was the jungle. There were also some great boss fights and solved some of the questions of the first two games.

I haven't played the 4th one yet but from what I've read and seen it looks pretty awesome. Too bad I don't have a PS3

Most psx/n64 games have aged terribly imo

I remember sleeping over at my buddys house when I was about 8 years old and playing Nintendo really late and one of the last games we played was the original Metal Gear for NES and I saw the cardboard box in that game. I remember thinking that was the funniest thing in the world as an 8 year old.

I wouldn't mind a port of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2:Solid Snake which is supposedly really challenging.

And I still think MGS 3 was the best one but all 4 of them were fantastic.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

Metal Gear for the NES is a fucking joke. Play the MSX version if you want to really be wowed.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

Personally, the biggest thing I like about the NES version of Metal Gear are all the bad translations.

I FEEL ASLEEP~!

THE TRUCK HAVE STARTED TO MOVE~!

Awesome

Edit: And the awesome Michael Biehn ripoff game cover.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

You can get ported version of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 in the Metal Gear 3: Subsistence but it can cost a helluva lot of money and at the end of the day probably isn't worth it. On another note I picked up MGS3 for £6 today. Bargain.

Re: Retro Gaming Discussion

MGS 1 is sort of a remake of MG 2

After reading this, I popped in MGS3 into my PS3 wanting to play it and fell asleep watching the opening cinema...




It is common to hear of a peasant's dream of striving for knighthood as an
escape from hardship, but who would ever think it possible?
