I agree totally with Solid Snake. I could still play MGS over and over without getting sick of it. The original has the best story line than the others in the series.

The original, untouched game is available now in the Metal Gear Solid Essentials box. Sure, the box also includes 2 and 3 (the special editions, only 3 is missing the second disc), but for just thirty bucks (!) it's well worth it. This is how I got my hands on it (in fact I was inspired by this very TV spot!), and even though I already own the original release of 3 it was worth every penny for such a wonderful game. They aren't bluffing - it IS the best reason to own a Playstation. Keep in mind that you need an original Playstation memory card, but those shouldn't be too hard to find.

Compared to the original Twin Snakes isn't nearly as good - they changed the perfect score (completely altering the effect of many scenes), some of the voices were changed, and the cutscenes were "pumped-up" to include flashy, incredible wire-fu moves obviously inspired by The Matrix trilogy. However, if you go in with an open mind and accept it for what it is, rather than tear it apart for what it ISN'T, it's a pretty solid (ha, ha, I kill myself) game. So I'd still check it out if you have a Gamecube or Wii.

Anyway...what's everybody's favorite ending? Without spoiling anything I personally prefer Otacon's.

It IS the best reason to own a PlayStation. This is, by far, the best in the Metal Gear series.

Have this for PC (yes, PC!)...still play it occasionally. The story/plot are timeless.

VengefulRonin, you could always get a Gamecube and pick up Twin Snakes. It's Metal Gear 1 but it plays like 2

Maybe THE best game on PS1

I still haven't managed to find this game, I have 2 and 3 on the PS2. Still...I don't ever remember seeing commercials for this game o_O

sonic64, once you've played a Metal Gear game only then when you'll understand the hype!

Playstation games had their own cool thing going on.

Metal Gear Solid is the best Tactical Espionage Action game.
