I wouldn't recommend starting with anything other than MGS1, and then doing 2-4 before playing 5. Even though it's chronologically set before 1, I'm pretty sure 5 will be designed for someone familiar with plot points from the other games, and so you'll enjoy it a lot more if you're filled in on all the story. If you don't fancy playing all the games, then as someone else suggested there are compilations available on YouTube. They're great games though, so check them out!

I'm Welsh, and I can't believe any Scot wouldn't jump at the chance to get away from the toxic British ruling class. The politics of fear have really come to the forefront recently and they have gotten increasingly dirty as the possibility of a yes has actually become more and more likely. What is the worst that can happen if you gain independence really? Because nothing at all will change with a 'no'.
I hope they vote yes for their own sake, even if it might be detrimental to the UK as a whole.
I'm Welsh and have to agree about the No campaign becoming increasingly desperate in recent weeks. The level of scaremongering in the mainstream media is disgusting, you'd think the world would come to an end if Scotland voted Yes.
For my own part, I'd be very pleased to see an independent Scotland as a knock against Westminster and the monarchy.
@vincentavatar: I found Witcher 1 a bit of a slog at times, but overall I enjoyed it, and I think you'll be glad you played through it when you get to Witcher 2 and import your save file. Even if it doesn't make a huge difference to the gameplay, it's a great feeling to recognise various characters and locations and feel further immersed in the world as a result. I might even say that it was worth seeing the clunky aspects of Witcher 1 so as to better appreciate the improvements in the sequel.
"Really feel as though the scriptwriters of the GiantBomb show could write some better dialogue for the character of X, he's just not gelling with me right now. They really should try to make him a more likeable character."
This is a great post.
@scizzy: I must say, I'm impressed with your rational, even-handed assessment of these figures. I've recently spent some time reading presidential biographies and it's really helped me understand how complex evaluating a presidency can be. Other than Washington I haven't been too impressed with the presidents I've read about, but for that reason I'm looking forward to reading up on Lincoln and FDR.
