Just to explain if some people don't understand, non-canon means they weren't related to the main story.

Mainman3902d ago

I dont know what this guy is talking about, but MGS: Portable Ops is canon. Portable Ops takes place after Snake Eater.

Hatchetforce3902d ago

Absolutely canon. This covers how Roy Campbell first enters the story line as well as a host of other events are given their early explanation.

meepmoopmeep3902d ago

Portable Ops is canon. It had a lot to do with the story line.

solidt123902d ago

Agreed. Canon. Im playing MGS3 now since I beat DMC4. After that I will go back and finish portable ops. Anyway I thought that was a great video. I would like to see one that includes portable ops though.

metal gear is the greatest gaming series that has ever been created.

i dont understand how nobody ever dies in those games. meryl comes back in mgs4 after being dead at the end of 1. vamp never dies. that ninja guy always dies but always ends up coming out in all mgs games. otacon pissed his pants. and i dont know wtf is going on anymore!!

sandip7873902d ago

in the proper ending, meryl doesnt die. the cyborg ninja dies in mgs1, but is deepthroat in MGS2, and olga guluchovich dons the cyborg suit in MGS2 and dies.
Ocelot doesnt die.
liquid died but is back when his arm is planted on ocelots.
vamp doesnt die because, well he's a vampire. apparently when hes near water he comes back to life - eg fortunes tears, the water that he falls into after you fight him, and the ocean when you snipe him.
the boss dies in MGS3, the big boss dies in MGX.
most of the boss's die when you defeat them. emma emmerich dies.
so yeh, i do agree that people die and come back to life, and the story is confusing as hell, but thats part of the lunacy that is metal gear. it doesnt stop it from being a brilliant creation.

Panthers3902d ago

In MGS1 there were 2 endings, and if you survived the shocking chair part then you got an ending where Maryl lives.

Timesplitter143902d ago

Yes I don't know how those who didn't play the MGS games manage to survive.

Greatest franchise ever
Better than any movie or game

Portable Ops is related to the story!

Vitalogy3902d ago

Awesome video capturing the MGS essence! I've had a NES and SNES and i didn't knew that i had MGS that time :S shame on me!

gaffyh3902d ago

Well it is related to the story, but not as much as the main games...the ones that were the Major hits, and the ones that everyone relate MGS with. I played the potable ops games, and they're not really that necessary to play to understand MGS.

They are if you dive deeper in to the story and dont accept it at face value...check my Forum post in Ps3 games to understand. Its titled Theories of MGS PO.
