I want to play MGS4 but i have heard there is no point in playing it if i dont know the story of the first 3 MGS 's , So is there a video or something where I can get to know the story enough to understand MGS 4 ??

there is a thing you can download off the store and it will give u a run down of the past games. mgs has a really deep story it will be very hard to learn all about it without playing

mgs4 pretty much recaps the entire saga in cut scenes. so long as you pay attention youll get the gist of it. might need to play it through twice though lol

you need to play the three first and to explain a little in mgs 1 you play as solid snake and you fight liquid and ocelot in mgs 2 you play as snake and raiden to defeat ocelot and liquid and solidus snake(solidus snake is one of the three brothers solid snake and liquid) and in mgs three its a prequal its naked snakes story or big boss the father of the three clones (solid snake, liquid, solidus) the story takes place in the 1960s and explaines how naked snake became big boss. The story is so long that you need to play each game three times to understand why the patriots did this and mgs4 is the sequal to mgs2. and i wont spoil to much because i dont want to get moded.:D hope this helps. buy the mgs games and see the cutscenes and understand how the story unfolds its amazing.

If you can, play MGS 1-3.

Coming from a big MGS fan, I would say that dont bother with 4 if you havent played the others.

I'm not a big fan of the MG franchise, but I've always had fun playing the games. It's still worth a purchase because just as others have said, there are plenty of ways online to get the stories history. Here's the thing that's going to really make you scratch your head...MG3 "TECHNICALLY" is MG1:P...in short it's a prequel to the first 2.

It's basically impossible to play MGS4 and understand the story/character motives without playing the first 3. Don't play MGS4 without playing the first 3 unless you really don't care about the story at which point I would ask "Why do you wanna play MGS4?"

Well, it's best if you play all four games in the order they were released for the original experience as well as ascending production quality....but... seeing as that option might be a bit difficult for most people today, your best bet is to bring yourself up to date with the story primarily through the MGS database....or, even better yet, find and watch complete video walkthroughs of each title.(Still doesn't come close to experiencing the titles on your own though..but it's better than nothing).

Don't bother playing 4 if you haven't played 1 2 and 3.

Yeah you will never get the full experience unless you play each one.

MGS4 is way sick! but i knew that if I hadnt played the others, I would of not enjoyed MGS4 quite as much.

Its an amazingly deep story that deserves of knowing everything about it
