Although Death Stranding is an excellent game, it is evident that the name of Hideo Kojima is attached to Metal Gear. It is there where the Japanese creative gave us many joys for decades (the first installment, in case anyone has been confused, came out in 1987). And just about this mythical saga we proposed you to debate last week on our Discord server using this question:
What is the best Metal Gear and why?
The first to open fire was our reader aturroh94 with a concise and direct message:
“For me the best Metal Gears are: Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4. Both for their history and their animations.”
And that’s it. It is clear to him, he lets it go and it’s over. Very good games, of course. Alejandro Espinosa, for its part, extends a little more:
“What a marvel of the saga! I think the best without a doubt is the Metal Gear Solid from PS1. For several reasons: it was one of the first (if not the first) games that raised the” game-movie “roll, with a Serious plot, with action, intrigue and even several script twists, I think Kojima is evident here that he was influenced by Hollywood.
At the time it was a revolution, not only as I already said from the script, but also for graphics, music, sound FX, playable mechanics (inventory system, real weapons, Codec system, use of medicines and artifacts for infiltration, etc. ). It was also clearly the game that popularized the stealth subgenre. After 1, for me the second best was 3. Another twist, putting the hunting system, advanced healing system, camouflage … “.
JAER-27 go back to the thing about leave a very direct message:
“For me Metal Gear Peace Walker. Tremendous what they managed to do on the PSP. Very good graphics, good story, portable. A luxury.”
Ari, one of the regulars in these parts, told us the following:
“Well, I have only played 1, 2, 3, 5 and Vr Missions and they are all unique and special, the MGS saga is a masterpiece. But if I have to keep one, then the first one without a doubt (although It was not the first to come out, since there are previous snes if I remember correctly), I am talking about the first one that came out on the PS1, that game broke schemes, incredible in every way, a work of art.
And the reason is because it did everything right and raised the bar for tactical action games to a level never seen before. Not to mention the story, the relationships between characters, the battles against each of the bosses, -even the Easter eggs! -. Everything is extremely careful at the absolute level of detail. Impeccable”.
Finally we rescued the message that he left us Elmasbestgame about:
“The one from Game Boy Color. Portable. Vr Missions to throw something quick. Very nice pixel art. And it was less annoying to ignore the story when everything is presented to you only in text boxes, and not endless cutscenes.”
We made our private list ordering the whole saga from worst to best and, now, we encourage you to follow the conversation in the comments where you can tell us which one is yours Metal Gear favorite.
Thank you very much for participating, we will leave you a new discussion on Discord for this week.
