I thought it has been said that GZ will be a prequel to MGS5

itani2016d ago

WTF how many Metal Gears is there that are being made simultaneously?

Hanso2016d ago

2 or 3 now
we still dont know if GZ and 5 are two different Games

i think Ground Zeroes is the first mission of the game, the helicopter crashes and thats when "the phantom pain" happens, 2nd mission.Combine both of these together and you get the prologue for MGS5. So Ground Zeroes, The Phantom Pain, and then MGS5 is all one game.

Jasimulator2016d ago

This is what I was thinking, Ground Zeroes is the prologue, Phantom Pain is Chapter 1, Mobby Dick is an in-game organization at the first chapter, and the whole thing is one game that you know what it is.

doesnt quite make sense. Snake isnt in a helicopter he is sneaking through an enemy camp. Perhaps you meet up with someone in a car. They then drive you to some destination but you crash before you get there. You then wake up in this strange hospital leaving the player wonder if its real or not.

I was thinking that that moby dick was created by one of the bosses in the game. Do you guys recall the guy in the flaming suit? Good point though, dubbnasty.

I have never played a Metal Gear solid game. I just picked up a Ps3 and finished the Uncharted series. Thinking about going with metal gear series or God of war series where should I start?

RedDeadLB2016d ago

Tough call, but definitely play both series. I'd suggest MGS if you're in a sneaking mood.

ANIALATOR1362016d ago

yes but I suggest you play MGS1 first and give yourself some time after you've finished it to relish over it than start on the other 3

Hanso2016d ago

if you start with GoW play in order first:
GoW 1
GoW 2
GoW 3

for MGS
MG Rising

Do not play MGS4 first. You'll be absolutely lost and nothing that happens will mean anything to you, I also didn't much like it as a game but I'm in the tiny minority there. If you can handle old old old games the first Metal gear solid still stands up well.

Overall though I'd have to say for the perfect balance between easing yourself into the story and playing a well rounded Metal gear game I'd start with Metal gear solid 3. It's the first part of the story chronologically (I think) and even though its a sort of prequel story that can be played at any point in the marathon (as long as its played before Peace walker, which is its direct sequel) it's got the smoothest controls and the best mix of accessibility and originality. The only problem there is that it's probably the best one so it'll be downhill from there. Not far downhill but still no other game in the series stacks up against it for me.

If you can handle old PS1 games you should try playing them all in order of release. If not I'd say start with MGS3, then either MGS2 or Peacewalker, then MGS4. Just be sure to at least watch some of the cutscenes from MGS1 on YouTube before playing 2.

Warning, be prepared to take a lot of stuff with a pinch of salt. It's an amazing series but there's more then a little craziness and melodrama in there that can put off the more weak willed.

You know out of all the mgs games I think I like mgs2 the most
I fn love dead cell and yes I know people hate him but raiden is my boy!!!

Hanso got it completely wrong! Metal Gear has one of the most complex stories in gaming history, probably media history. Starting at MGS1 would be retarded as by MGS3 you'd be completely confused!

The chronological time line is;

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (HD collection)
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (PSP only)
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker (HD collection)

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (coming next year)
Metal Gear Solid V (coming in the near future)

Metal Gear (HD collection)
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (HD collection)
Metal Gear Solid (The Twin Snakes) (PSN or Gamecube)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (HD collection)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3 only)

Edit... Play in this order, MGS3 first and MGS4 last to get the most out of the story!

I'd avoid Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, not a proper Metal Gear.


You've hit the nail on the head. Ground Zeros seems to be the warm-up acted before MGS V. Ground Zeros is a sequel to Peace Walker and the prequel before MGS V. MGS V will probably be the prequel of Metal Gear, the original game in the franchise.
