I think I am going to get this game. I have never played any of the series but I think I will give it a try.

Nicky,

If you haven't played any of them before, I'd recommend you pick up a used copy of MGS 2 somewhere...Should be cheap.


Okay, minor spoiler: Solid Snake (the hero of the series) isn't the main character for most of it, but it also has a section off the main menu which tells the full backstory. Seems MGS4 is going to continue more or less where 2 left off, albeit a few years later.

MGS 3 is also great, but is more of a prequel.

Never was a fan of the original Metal Gear, but once the Solid series took off, I was hooked.

"Snaaaaaaake!!" :fist:

Thanks for the advise, I guess I will look around for a copy.

UPDATE (Minimal spoilers):


This game may very well be the grimmest game I've ever played.
I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to say that it feels more like a suicide mission than ever before.

Haven't gotten through much of it, but I'm eager to see others' opinions.

That is a dangerous question to ask, it is similar to the 9mm vs 45. I have both but I prefer the 360 to PS3 for games. I use my PS3 for Blu-ray. I never had a PS2 so I don't have a library of games and I never used the controller. My wife bought me an Xbox years ago and that was my first console since the Atari 2600. So I became comfortable with the controllers. I personally love the 360 and I even like the achievements that you can get for the games, it gives the game more playability for me. So IMHO if you want games then the 360 is it, at least for now, but the PS3 does have the built in Blu-ray player which is really nice and they do have some good games out and coming out.
