The Fastest Way To Prepare Yourself For 'Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain'

Forbes: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain comes out in a little less than two weeks. It was always going to be one of the biggest games of the year, but the recent drama surrounding Konami and Hideo Kojima, and the fact that this will be the last Kojima-led game in the series, means that expectations are higher than ever.

And yet, there seems to be a problem for some people who feel as if they’re behind on the series, or simply never got into it in the first place. Is it possible to jump right into Metal Gear Solid 5 without knowing what came before?

Wow 26 hours of videos! I might take the plunge and eventually come around to trying mgs5 when done.

I haven't played a MGS game before, other than MGS4 for an hour maybe.

The story looks like a lobotomy mindfuck, which I friggin love! Just need to find some place to learn the backstory without spending 20 hours.
