After finishing the game the first time all I can say is...wow...just incredible. I have concluded MGS is the best game series of all time, it trancends any gaming experience I have ever had in my entire life!
Resident Evil comes in a distant second, even more distant sence the bastard child we all know as a great game but not a great Resident Evil game RE4 poked its head out.
Back to my point! Seriously you can not call yourself a real gamer if you do not play MGS 1-4 (and the other Metal gear games besides Acid or portable ops)* I know this sounds kind of stupid * But I don't care what system it's on, you should just not miss any of these game they are a masterpiece and Hideo Kojima deserves every ounce of respect that everyone gives him and none of the flack some poor people are trying to poor on top of him for no reason.
But before I start to insult people who don't like "Stealth action" games, I'll shut up and leave it to your preferences to pass up the best series of video games in history.
