  • The Metal Gear Solid series spans decades, but not necessarily in that order, as the games are not released in any particular order. This should help to put things in perspective.

Beginning in 1987 and concluding with Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima was the man behind the Metal Gear series’ inception. Death Stranding, developed by the game designer who was fired by Konami under dubious circumstances, shows he hasn’t given up on sharing his vision with the world.

A List of the Best Villains in the Metal Gear Solid Series

Even if his final work was Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, he left a lasting mark on the medium with the Metal Gear series. The games’ narrative spans six decades. Here is a list of all the Metal Gear games to help you keep track of the timeline.

Metal Gear has created an alternate history that spans from the end of World War I to several years after 2018. No other franchise has done this. Despite the fact that 2018 is already a long time ago, the Metal Gear universe features much more modern technology. It’s worth revisiting this list to see if any new spin-offs have been added. There aren’t any canonical new entries, but even if they weren’t, many of these games are still worth checking out for the sheer novelty value alone.

Snake Eater from Metal Gear Solid 3 (Released In 2004, Set In 1964)

Serpent eater The very first Metal Gear game lays the groundwork for the series’ central conflict between the main characters. Interestingly, fans were unaware of its significance in the canon when it was released. It wasn’t until 2008’s release of Metal Gear Solid 4 that the series explained how characters like The Boss and Major Zero influence the rest of the games.

  • As a stand-alone title, Metal Gear Solid 3 succeeds even though it is the third in the series.

Portable Ops (Metal Gear Solid IV) (Released In 2006, Set In 1970)

Portable ops with no boss fight Even though it’s official, you don’t need to know about this portable spin-off to appreciate the larger storey. For the first time, Big Boss meets a young Roy Campbell in this game, and it’s worth the price of admission for that alone. In addition, the gameplay introduces a number of concepts that would be expanded upon in later games like Peace Walker and The Phantom Pain.

  • Portable Ops was never released on consoles, so getting back into it will require a PSP.

Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are directly connected to Peace Walker’s plot points and themes. There were three Metal Gear Solid games included in the PS3 re-release: Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4. He solidifies his position and philosophy to create an army without nations here, and he begins his shadow war with Major Zero. The majority of the storey takes place in Costa Rica, where colonialism and the Cold War are prevalent themes. There is less gore than in other entries because the game is rated T, but the storey still hits hard and goes in dark directions.

The Phantom Pain’s prologue is only about 90 minutes long, but there is enough content here for those who want to see it all. In addition to introducing a significant tonal shift, it serves as a bridge to the full game. Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are so oppressive in tone that they have sparked controversy in the gaming community. As much as the price has caused some controversy, Ground Zeroes these days can be had for as little at a few dollars. Even bundles of Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain can be purchased for a low price online.

Metal Gear’s prequels would have finally been connected to the original Metal Gear if the Phantom Pain had been given the development time it needed. Play These Open-World Games If You Enjoyed Them The Phantom Pain, the fifth Metal Gear Solid game

Even though Phantom Pain is still a fantastic game,

The ending is missing a few key elements. Regardless, the storey is top-notch. The 1984 date is logical because of the game’s focus on the Patriots and the use of language to control people. There is a strong desire among fans for The Phantom Pain to receive the same treatment as Death Stranding. There are a number of storylines that need to be resolved.

Despite its quaintness in today’s terms, the franchise’s first entry sowed the stealth-action seeds that later entries would water. Many well-known characters appear here but are never given any further attention. It is hoped that this game’s place in the canon will be strengthened by a remake that references events from the other games. The Phantom Pain, in particular, places the first game in a new context.

  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which is available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, is the best way to play it today.
