Ranking Hideo Kojima's 8 Metal Gear Games


With the release of The Phantom Pain nearly upon is, we decided to take a look back at the iconic games in the series that Hideo Kojima himself has directed and see how they stack up against one-another. Though there are dozens of strange portable games, card battlers, remakes, and action-oriented offshoots to the series, we decided to focus on the core eight games that Kojima had full control of. We all adore games like Ghost Babel and Revengeance, but we left them off the list due to their limited Kojima development. On the dawn of the arrival of his ninth and final Metal Gear games, here are his current eight, ranked.

MGSV is about to take the crown.

..MGS3 was conceived originally on PS2 not PS3 , they r wrong for the best i say from story and direction perspective-> MGS 1 (the most serious one)... but the best combination of story , mechanics , graphics and gameplay is MGS3

bradleejones1194d ago

I think you're right... Gonna be epic.

Epicor1194d ago

My personal list (of what I've played):
1. MGS3
2. MGS
3. MGS4
4. MGS2

I've got a good feeling about MGS5 (excluding Konami nonsense).

metal gear solid on the gameboy color

These eight were directed by Kojima and therefore found to be canon. There are some arguments to be made for portable ops, but this is the undeniable list.

Just got the legacy collection, hopefully I have time to play them again

Stringerbell1194d ago

Its a great collection minus the fact Twin Snakes is missing. Lots of fans like to tip their nose to that game but personally I love it. And its a damn shame that besides emulation we will never see an official HD remaster or re-release of the game.

Barnaby-Jones1194d ago

I will always love MGS3! I've played through it so many times.

Captain_Wormy1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

Where the hell is Portable Ops? I personally liked MGSPO a lot more than Peace Walker.

SolidGear31194d ago

Kojima didn't even like Portable Ops. I'm not judging because it's the one MGS I haven't played.

bradleejones1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

Opinions vary... But 4, 2, 3, PW, 1, snakes revenge. Never played the original. Edit. Never cared for portable ops.
