    Well i got all the games of the series (I havent played them all ) and this series is really confusing. I was wondering if yall guys can help me figure some stuff out.
    Why are there different types of snake? (solid snake, naked snake, liquid snake)
    What are the differences between the snake characters?
    Are all the games in order chronologically?

    3) 3 (Snake Eater) comes first. It has a direct sequel on the PSP called Portable Ops.

    Solid Snake and Naked Snake are both voiced by David Hayter, though.

    The games aren't in chronological order.

    MGS1 is the first game so I'll use this as a reference point.
    MGS2 is set some years after MGS1.
    MG3 is a prequel.
    MGS4 is set some years after MGS2.

    I was wondering why they sounded exactly the same
    I havent really played amy of the games through yet so should I start metal gear 3 since it is the first one set in the timeline?

    Am I the only person who doesn't pay attention to MGS's story line?
    I played portable ops and mgs2 and would just skip the cutscenes when the game allowed.
    It was always some ridiculous plot anyways, but at least the gameplay more than made up for it.

    You can play them in any order, but I played 3 first and I would recommend playing the first game first since the gameplay elements are a bit.. different.


    Edit: Disappointed was the wrong word to use. Re-wrote the post.

    I would recommend playing through them the order in which they were released, starting with MGS1. Starting at MGS3 is cool, but the experience is much more shocking and awesome once you've gotten accustomed to who everyone is and such. There's quite a few surprises in MGS3 that some wouldn't understand if they just start with that title first.

    This is actually quite funny, I just bought the MGS Essential Collection a few months back to play through it all again and I'm about to start at the beginning as well... [​IMG]
