I've never played mgs before but ended up with this after getting a ps3 and I started mgs3 first what order is it recomended to play these three is it thr way the game lays it out on the select screen
I have a better idea. Put it into the fucking trash. Knowing that the whole series is leading up to that absolute shitfest known as Phantom Pain, I wish I never played this shit. It's not worth it. Phantom Pain is so shit it retroactively made the whole series trash.
RELEASE ORDER, motherfucker.
Get MGS1 and 4 from PSN Store, and play MGS1 first!
Read up the summaries of MG1 and 2 from the main menu, and watch the briefing files.
Why the hell did you not get the LEGACY Collection? It has the whole series!
And like said a billion times: release order.
Stop what ever you're doing right now, and play MGS1 first. No exceptions.
Ignore MGS2-fangirls and PW haters.
You'll be horribly lost if you do not play the games in the order they came out. You're doing a big mistake if you play them out of order.
MGS1 is available on PSN Store for few bucks, and can be easily emulated on PC too.
...yeah, there's that PC port too, but it's kinda shitty.
>what order is it recomended to play these
(MG1 -> MG2:SS ->) MGS1 -> MGS2 -> MGS3 -> MGS4 -> MGS:PW -> Ground Zeroes -> Phantom Pain.
You especially simply cannot play MGS2 without playing MGS1 first, and you miss a ton of references and jokes in ALL of them if you skip the original game.
This. Also obviously the visuals will improve with each title as well. GL trying to adapt the jumpy visual and gameplay quality if you play them randomly.
>MGS1 looks like ass anyway
And here comes the graphics fags.
Fuck of. PW is one of the best MGS games, ever.
