I was a late to the party of the greatness of the metal gear series. I have MG4 and I have peace walker for my PSP. Now i never played any of the other games so i was wondering if i should buy for 25 at best buy?

If you never played them on PS2 then yes. If you have a PS3 though I would get it on that.

I though about gettting it on PS3. the only two reason why i'm looking at it on vita is one the price and two it would give me something to do at school between classes.

Yes, it is worth it to play the 2 games. I still consider MGS3 to be the best of the series.

The games are great regardless of what you play em on. I've played the Collection on PS3 and Vita; they're both fantastic ports. Transfarring between the two consoles make it even sweeter.

I don't know, I bought the collection, played a little MGS 2 and then traded it back in for what I paid for it. I was hoping the recent PSN releases would be cross-buy. Felt pretty dated in my opinion and I really enjoyed MGS 4.

MGS3 is just awesome. MGS2 got a lot of flack for raiden, but it's a still a great game imo. You could probably find MGS3 or 2 in the gameshare thread for under $15 if you don't mind digital copies.

MGS 3 is so fun. MGS 2 isn't as good but doesn't suck.

Kind of a shame you played peace walker first the whole story of MGS 3 was pretty much ruined you for.

i love mgs2 and i probably played that one the most back in 2001. MGS is a must have also, both are classics and still hold up great for today even on ps2. Peace Walker is alright but im not liking it like 2 or 3. It feels too tiny and small.

MGS3 alone is worth more than the $25 so get the collection. that game is a masterpiece in every way. It puts MGS4 to shame.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

How do the graphics in MGS3 HD compare to MGS4?

I took advantage of the Best Buy extra 100% trade in value and traded 2 games to get this collection for $5 after the $15 RZ coupon.

MG3 is worth the price alone, MGS2 was okay but still good to have. Even at $25 is still a great buy, you should pick it up.
