Yes & a lot of codec dialogue. That's the only real criticism about the MGS franchise but overall its a A+++ series.

"Criticism"? Depending on who you ask, I suppose. I love the story of the MGS series, so I see the cutscenes and dialogue as huge pluses, not as anything worthy of criticism.

Man, Amazon is really taking their time to ship this out to me. I placed two first-party orders over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday), and here we are Monday night with both of them "shipping soon"... meanwhile, a third-party order I placed over the weekend is already on its way. [Potentially] one-two business days to ship isn't bad overall, but it seems bad by Amazon standards. ;)

I still have the 360 version of the limited edition sealed...wonder if it's worth anything or if I should just play it.

I have never played any of the games in this series. In terms of the story, should I just start with MGS 1 before playing the HD collection or is each game a stand alone adventure? I'm curious to know what fans recommend. Any input is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance. :)

It is recommended that you start from the first one but MGS2 (the reason I say the second is that the first one has not aged very well in terms of graphics so that may turn off the younger gamers used to high end graphics.) is also a good start. It is not like Final Fantasy where every iteration is different. They all connect in story.

I don't mind the graphics like the younger kids do these days. I'll start off with the first one just so I can understand what's going on. Thanks for the reply. I've heard good things about this series so I'm eager to start.

Yeah starting off with the first one is a good idea. But to really understand what's going on story wise you really have to start with mgs3 and the peace walker series. That'll give you a better over view of the background happenings of the MSG 1, 2, & 4 games. Gameplay wise though start with msg1 since its the oldest and doesn't have some of the features of the later titles.

Yea I agree with the other guy, start with the first and play them in the order they came out. The first one still might be my favorite MGS.

$30 for these three games is a great deal, I haven't even played Peace Walker yet, but 2 and 3 are well worth the money alone!
