Once you realize this, it's much easier to get past how convoluted the story appears. It's actually pretty amazing that they managed to push the story this far.

It's just fun to see the connections between games that they come up with. How MGS3, MGS:PW, and MGS5 were basically all just a big justification for why the final boss of MG1 was named "Big Boss", and why he built an evil fortress in the desert. At the time of making MG1, they probably named him that just because he was the final boss.

All these details are so much fun to think about. But if you haven't played the past games in the franchise, it's something you will definitely miss
