You can buy the Essential Collection (MGS, MGS2, MGS3) for $30. Thirty dollars, man! Any gamer owes it to himself to include these games in his collection. They're fantastic. The Metal Gear Solid saga is about story and characters. If you really want to get everything you can out of MGS4, you need to play the previous games and get to know these characters.
If you absolutely cannot part with 30 bucks, fine, watch the cut-scenes on YouTube. But I seriously, seriously recommend that you play these games. Seriously.

big boss, uber extreme elite soldier, goes on mission in the 60's.
after said mission, goes on another mission in the 70's. (quick note, Ocelot is the son of the Boss and the Sorrow.)
the 90's. Big Boss creates outer heaven in hopes of creating a world full of strife, perfect for a soldier like him.
snake arrives. infiltrates. defeats but does not kill Big Boss.
the 90's, again. Big Boss creates Zanzibar Land. has a hostage named 'Dr. Marv', who is a genious and created some sort of invention with Petroleum.
snake infiltrates once more. people die. snake kills Big Boss this time.
the shadow moses incident. new Metal Gear called Rex. terrorists sieze the facility.
snake infiltrates. a monumental never ending stream of lies ensue.
cutting to the chase, Snake kills every FOXHOUND member except Ocelot. beast. oh, and the Ninja is Frank Jaeger. friend of snake, but now some sort of elite killing ninja zombie guy.
meryl lives. (MGS4 assumes you saved her.)
i'm missing so much, it's not even funny.

I really, really want to buy MGS4. But I don't know because I haven't played the previous MGS's. Does anyone have a site that explains the full story? Cause I really don't want to buy MGS 1, 2 etc. Does anyone know what I should do?DEF-JAM
Actually if you go to gamestop, the regular game comes with a dvd that has all of the cutscenes put together as a movie.
