Metal Gear Solid 4: Where to Begin?

InfoAddict's Matt Butrovich writes, "With Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots a scant two months away, eager games are no doubt wondering how to best prepare themselves for the conclusion of the Metal Gear saga (or so Kojima says). MGS4 is primed to answer all of the lingering questions that have built up over the decades that his series has been around, but how will first-time players know what's going on? Big Boss, Revolver Ocelot, and Solid Snake (among others) all have story lines that span multiple games across multiple platforms, so catching up could be difficult...Thankfully not all of the games are necessary, so I've compiled all of the Metal Gear materials for you and I'll set the record straight on what should be experienced."

That's a lot of text.

Worth the read though. He was pretty harsh on Twin Snakes though.

Spot on, Twin Snakes blows.

The original MGS is way better than the rubbish that was Twin Snakes. The only good thing was the graphics, the rest was crap.

Not only that, but Silicon Knights also blows as developers. I remember when they went to the IGN MGS forums (Denis Dyack)and said about all the awesome content BLA BLA BLA that they were going to add and guess what, they didn't add anything.

Any MGS fan understand this so I don't even have to say it, but yeah...

I remember wanting Twin Snakes for the GameCube, glad I ended up not buying a copy. Could have ruined the series for me.
