The Metal Gear Saga is Complete, But Where Do I Start?

So you want to get into Hideo Kojima’s magnum opus of storytelling before being dragged into his newest trip featuring Norman Reedus and a fetus? There’s no other story-driven video game out there like the Metal Gear series and what better way to prepare for Death Stranding then by playing the games that skyrocketed Kojima to fame.

However, though he might be a master of storytelling in video games, understanding Kojima’s complete vision can be overwhelming.

Play the in the order they were released...?

Skip the whole thing entirely. There are better things to waste your life on.

I hope that you don't drive or reproduce because that's a scary thought. Telling other people they can't enjoy something because you don't find it enjoyable is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

Foxhound922, telling other people they can't have an opinion just because it doesn't align with yours is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard! At least we don't have to worry about you reproducing, you'll never get a woman down in your moms basement. (Well not legally anyways)

It's not meant to be played chronologically. If you start with 3 you'll miss a lot of references.

You can say the same thing about the reference if you start with 1st.

You left out Metal Gear 1&2. The proper chronology is MGS3, MGS5, MG1, MG2, MGS, MGS2, MGS4.

Yeah play the order they were released.

Some people suggest chronologically, but the way certain reveals happen in certain games the narrative was purposely written in a way that it makes most sense to play them in release order. There are certain callbacks or references in MGSV to the first metal gear solid for example. So if you played them in chronological order you will have no idea what those references in V are referring to

Order of release, no question.

CorndogBurglar48d ago

Start with Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 from NES. Then play the Metal Solid series in the order they released.

Tross47d ago

You can actually access the proper versions of Metal Gear 1 and 2 if you have MGS3 in some form on your device, and those are the canon games. I would recommend playing those first, yes, although MGS1 isn’t a bad jumping on point either. However, the NES games are an interesting curiosity, for sure.
