i only have MGS 2: Sons of Liberty, and i reaaaaaaaally like that game.. it's just a bit short (not the first time though, but when you know everything it's short).. but amazing story and great gameplay..

(i like the fact you can make the character stronger by doing pull ups alot)

Nah, its fun and all but, FF is one of the greatest franchises. Or maybe Half Life 1 & 2.

Half life 2 put me to sleep.

MGS was amazing though. Some of those telephone conversations lasted quite a while though :D

No, I think the Splinter Cell-series is better. But I don't think any of those are the best games for PC.

I dont know I didnt enjoy the story, I wish it had focused more on the 1942 (the george orwell novel, i think I have the date wrong) aspect, people being oppressed etc. I find the G-man insufferably boring.

Anyway im bored of FPS just now :D

I will play them again when Natural Selection: Source comes out.

I love MGs 1 and 2, not played the rest. They're not my fave games though.

Plus Mattster- its 1984 not 1942! ;)

I love the story of HL2, it really is War of the Worlds/ 1984 with more rebellion in it where we actually overthrow Big Brother :D Hurrah!

If you talking about JUST Metal Gear Solid then yes indeed, it can be considered the best game ever created in ITS category (RPG.) (Final Fantacy be damned Lol!)

Many reasons:

- The story line was absolutely phenominal. The game never focused on one character alone. There is no definate good or bad in the game. Even the bad guys had heart wrenching stories about their past (Sniper Wolf has to be the most heart felt antagonist to greet any game.) Even the side characters like Grey Fox (My Personal Fav.) had qualitites and characteristics about his that made him an admirable friend/foe.

- The game play is just brilliant. The Sneaking, the strategizing, the methodical infiltration... It just can't be beat. This game isn't your conventional RPG; Its a whhooole lot more. The camera angles and the stealth aspect of the game was a wonderful input which later on inspired the Splinter Cell series.

All in all... It makes games with little runts with goofy pants make a run for their money ;).

*Personal thumbs up.*

Resident Evil 4, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy VIII, Klonoa, and Phoenix Wright all disagree with you.

The original Metal Gear Solid (on PSone) is among my top 5 all time favourites along with Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy 7.

Nope. Never was good with stealth - I spent far too much time running in and out of the same room over and over again, trying desperately to avoid cameras and guards that I gave up when I got to the Tank guy out of sheer frustration.

Always did prefer the run-ie, jump-ie, acrobat-ey kind of game...

Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PS2 is one of my favorite games ever! That was the best MGS game, IMO. :)

MGS is one awesome game, definitely a game in the "best of" catagory. I also think MGS3 is also one awesome game with one of the best endings ever.
