Hey, so I have never played a Metal Gear game. I know, I know, I have heard the hype surrounding them but I did not play this one so I felt like I couldn't just jump into the middle. With the recent news surrounding the series, Ground Zeros and The Phantom Pain (pretty obviously a Metal Gear game I think), and I have gotten interested. I have absorbed some of the story and some moments throughout the years, but I would not say I know what happens in each game or anything. I own the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, but I only bought it because a friend of mine who does not own any consoles really is into them and let him play, so I have those 3. I would also be willing to buy any others I needed to for the main storyline (I think only MGS1 and 4?). So my question, do I start with this and work my way through the whole series? Is it worth it? Since I have not played them I do not really know what I like that is similar, so maybe name something that people like for the same reasons and I can tell from that? I don't know, I am really thinking about it, but it is a serious time commitment and I just want to be sure before I start.
Thanks in advance for any help!
