Yeah MGS is great, probably my all time favorite. Even now, I go back and play through it every once and a while just to enjoy it's story once again. It never gets old. While 2 in my opinion isn't as good, it to is still a great game. I also think that the third is right back up there with the first. Have fun!
MGS2's story will break your mind.
Yeah, Metal Gear Solid was a great game. I played that game a many of times back when it was originally released.
I still need to beat MGS1. Only beat MGS3 and 4.
I'm backwards. I beat MGS1, 2, and 3, but I never played 4 until recently. I just finished 4 today. For the heck of it, I'm going to try the multiplayer on 4, but man, the update is SLOOOOOW!
Yeah, they all tend to start a little bit slow, but then some sort of catalyst comes along and it starts to get amazingly good.
I loved Metal Gear Solid, it's the only one I finished (gave up halfway through 2). MGS has one of the most WTF credit sequences ever, I'm glad you've now seen it.
All of the MGS games are really great, but just be ready for the biggest mind-fuck ever at the end of MGS 2. Don't worry though, all is explained in MGS 4 (and it actually wraps up pretty nicely too).
"I NEED SCISSORS, 61!"
I feel asleep!
Oh, sorry wrong Metal Gear.
Congrats, that really is an epic game. The whole "one night adventure" always makes for a better story in my book. I'll try to remember to drop you a PSN friend request, but if I forget, mine's Kiemoe (also very original)
MGS is a great series. I bought the collection as well but I played 4 first. Made alot more sense afterwards. I didn't understand anything at all at first so it didnt take much. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the first 3 even after playing 4. I spent like 2-3 weeks beating the first 3 then went into withdrawal cuz I didn't have a daily MGS fix. I don't think MGS2 is as bad as some people say but man.....phew...
Just recently I've been playing through MGS1 and MGS4 again. Beat MGS1 back when it was new, and MGS4 when that came out.
MGS1 is so awesomely atmospheric, there's really something about every aspect of that game that's amazing. The music, sound, colors, graphics... I had forgotten how primitive the graphics were. When playing MGS4 and using the MGS1 Solid Snake head camo part of me refused to believe it was really that bad in MGS1 (and it was actually worse as the image quality wasn't nearly as good).
For whatever reason I am also appreciating MGS4 more than ever now. There's so much fantastic about the game.
Never fully beat 2, and didn't get too far in 3. Why? I don't know.
Glad you enjoyed the original. I'm partial to MGS 1 and 3, which are relatively straightforward in the stories they tell, and also can stand alone as individual stories without playing the rest of the series (whereas 2 and 4 rely heavily on the extended series lore). Hope you enjoy MGS2!
Not played MGS since 1998, one of my all time favourites.
It is a good game. Metal Gear Solid 2 is the best in the series; from there stuff starts going downhill. I think you'll find that MGS4 isn't worth your time after you've cleared the other three.

MGS2 is so crazy. As an event, including the enormous E3 trailer - I think MGS2 stands as one of the most interesting moments in gaming history.
