Now if only they would do a re-release for current gen systems.

It’s a hell of a series... except for V, but man I remember when Snake Eater came out. It really made me start looking at games differently like more than just being “gamey”. Awesome Intro and a hell of story. The end when the flowers turn from white to red, just mwah!

It certainly has some amazing moments. MGS4 is my favorite but they're all great.

GZ & PP had the best gameplay though.

Oh, I won’t argue with you there and I’d say the beginning was pretty fantastic.

Problem is the game was unfinished and they rushed it out as such. I was not a fan of repeating missions and the ridiculous “open world” that was so barren and had me running for 5 minutes to get to an objection point.

There’s bits and parts I liked with V, but it pales in comparison to my experience with 1-4.

Depends on how you look at it, tbh. The first 4 games had far better and more memorable level design, boss fights and set pieces. MGS5 feels and plays a bit better than MGS4 but it's missing so much of what made the previous games fun to me. Even Peace Walker had lots of mech boss fights. I always thought they were saving the interesting boss designs for MGS5.

MGS5 feels like a series of side missions where almost EVERYTHING that can happen is system based. MGS4 was very system-based (particularly Act 1 and Act 2 where you can fight alongside the militia and gain their favour) but had lots of insane scripted events and distinct acts/chapters as well.

MGS5's open world was also quite hollow, and making your way to missions and repeatedly going back to Mother Base was a pain sometimes. I've never met anyone in real life who wasn't disappointed by MGS5, and I think that goes beyond the unfinished story.
