    I would be interested in it for PC if I could get 3 and 4 as well. For games so clearly relient on their story they sure like to spread them between platforms.

    hopefully it's going to be a proper port, none of the "B" to go back crap, and must have proper mouse support. also, there should be no need to go into options to change input device (looks at Battlestations Pacific)

    Yup this sounds like a nice long wait for nothing interesting at all. I gave up on the series after 2 anyway.

    I'll give it a try. Thanks to its consoleness I've never played a single MGS game, but they always did look appealing.

    It is probably as the first poster says though, the convoluted story will be impossible to follow without having played the previous ones. :(

    Whatever people say about MGS, the first one at least was a tremendously good game, and in all honesty still one of the best told stories in gaming in a long time. It's worth having a go on an old PSX, because as its the first there's no crazy plot to follow. Just the fact a crazy bio-enhanced super-spy has been hired to take down a bunch of his old team-mates who have gone loco and nicked a super-weapon, and that's it. The gameplay even lasts longer than the cut-scenes!

    Tsk, tsk, tsk... Never tried Snake Eater? EASILY as good as MGS 1. 4 was good, but I think it had a lot about it (9 hrs of cut scenes? Seriously?) that brought the overall enjoyment down. Seems as though only the odd numbered ones were particularly good.

    Raiden was annoying, but maybe losing part of his head and spine made him less whiny.

    Yeah, like PS1, 2, 3.. :p

    And yeah, Snake Eater was pretty awesome. I'll need a decent controller though, I can't stand playing non-FPS/RTS games without one.

    The last PC Metal Gear game had pretty terrible reviews, hopefully they know what they're doing this time.

    As I said in the thread for this game in the Gaming section, I HATE Raiden and wll NOT get this game.

    Besides this game is just a crappy spinoff and not a real part of the series.

    Hideo announced at E3 today the MGS game for PSP saying it is a real part of the story and not a spin off or side story. I wish that one was on PS3 instead of PSP.

    I will wait for MGS5.

    Am I the only person who hated Metal Gear Solid? I didn't like one aspect of it, so never wanted to play any other games in the series.
