    Regarding Metal Gear Solid, I still think the first game was the best. In terms of storyline. Solid Snake is one the most inspiring created characters I've ever come across.
    When it comes to overall gameplay, presentation and story nothing can touch the original MGS IMO. Everything about that game was perfect. The development of Snake as character was so innovative and new at the time for a video game character. Even the Bosses had a unbelievable back story that allowed you be really immersed in the game. I mean Sniper Wolf and Psycho Mantis really became characters and not just just enemies you had to kill. The music was spot on, I mean that first scene when you rise out of the water into Shadow Moses, and that music was playing in the background, it totally set the tone for the whole game.

    Though the following games in the series did improve the gameplay (Hanging, shooting in first-person, Camo, CQC etc.) and of course graphics, the first MGS still has to be at the top for me, no doubt.

    Oh and for the record MGS4 was awesome. Didn't take me that long to finish surprisingly. And the boss battles weren't as hard as they were in MGS3, but it was still a good game. You can really tell it's the end in the final conversation after the credits. Sucks that Snake has to go out like that though.
    Spoilers


    There was an article that came out that said David Hayter (Voice of Snake) really wanted Hideo to kill off Snake at the end in the cemetery. Saying how Snake would never allow himself, with the mutated Foxdie, to make the selfish choice and spare his own life while endangering others. I believe Hideo's response was that it humanizes Snake, which makes sense I guess, but I would have to agree with Hayter. Either way I still enjoyed the ending. Especially with Big Boss and Snake reconciling. Wasn't to happy on what the Patriots actually were though. That was kind of lame.

    And I usually try not to geek out this much, but with MGS it's worth it.

      On the other hand at least it wasn't the typical kind of thing you'd expect...like Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop...

        • I bought my first HDtv for myself tonight and now I pretty much need to buy a HDMI cord for my ps3. I have read at some places you shouldnt spend over 25 dollars on a HDMI cord. So i was wondering if anyone else has one a hdmi cord hooked up to an HD TV and what cord they bought and how much.

          • I bought the special Sony PS3 HDMI cord, but that was quite expensive, and it is no different (or at least I think) then regular HDMI cords.

              I got mine off of amazon for 4 bucks. It's cheap and it is just as good as the 100 dollar cables.

              Speaking of Metal Gear Solid......anyone want to buy a copy? I got one with ps3 bundle and played it twice but really didn't like it much.

                      You shouldnt have to spend much. I believe my roommate got one for his PS3 for like 10 bucks at most.
