The Top Ten Best Metal Gear Games

1 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

The STORY is so so perfect...This GAME is a masterpiece for sure!

I actually didn't finish it but it is AMAZING the way you have to be stealthy to do good at all in it or the fact that the bosses were so well done but I love this game so much

The greatest stealth game ever! The story, the grafics, the weapons and gameplay, everything is perfect in this game. Simply a masterpiece.

Most FUN metal gear and 2nd most entertaining (held by MGS4)

2 Metal Gear Solid

By far the best in the series. Fantastic story, interesting characters, easy to understand gameplay and amazing bosses.

This game is Kojima's masterpiece. It doesn't need other games to help tell its story because it works as a standalone title. The gameplay was challenging while it also helped accommodate the story at times. This game was revolutionary and will always stand as one of the greatest games of all time.

In my own opinion one of the best games ever made! Interesting story, wonderful music, amazing bosses, easy to understanding gameplay. A revolution!

Definitely the best of the series, and I didn't play it until a few years ago. Gameplay and story still hold up

3 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

An incredible end to the story of Solid Snake, great graphics, genuinely heartfelt moments and characters, excellent music, a beautiful tone, its all here.

The 2nd newest one and in my opinion the best one. A lot of fun and only on ps3. One of the most popular games on ps3. Really good!

Best Game ever

MGS 3 Is The best game of the series but this...this beyond a game

4 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

It's not the story of the game that does it for me. It's the fact that this game is a very post-modern one. Kojima basically predicted the future of technology and the internet.

Intriguing story, Mature themes, Extremely controversial. This hands down is one of my most favourite games from the MGS series

Hands down number 1!

I really love this one - RevolverOcelot

5 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

This is a fun game with strategy, a mix of Assassins Creed, Red Dead Redemption, and with a pinch of challenge. I love the way that over time, the enemies make strategies to resist you. I really love this game. You can play with staff, kick sheep, punch things, steal soldiers, find puppies, ride things, and everything in the real world. What's to hate? - CnCF_0878

I think this deserves to be tied with or just under MGS3 for best game. While they are two very different games, Phantom Pain is an astoundingly awesome entry into the open-world genre which incorporates lots of game mechanics from previous games, but since it deviates so much from the traditional Metal Gear formula, I'd say MGS3 retains the crown of the best "true" Metal Gear game.

I can accept snake eater and maybe metal gear solid being above this, but 2? 4?

Honestly this is the best metal gear. It has the best gameplay, the best levels design, a fascinating story and unlike the rest of metal gear, here there is a lot more gameplay than cinematic.

6 Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

This is honestly my favorite in the entire franchisee because its like... I don't know but I love the cut scenes and the interaction cut scene's. The only bad thing is the torture chamber escape because you have to mash down triangle still 10/10 IGN Rating

Amazing! The story, the action, the strategy, the amazing boss fights! The best boss fights I have experienced in a game in a very long time! Plus the cool art cutscenes!

Incredible! Loved the Operations side of it. Recruiting soldiers and building up the base felt great. Downside was the bosses and I didn't have that great of a feel for the cutscene style

Best in the series for me

7 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

This game was so awesome that it had to be on here twice

This is my favorite game ever.

Best thing ever

I love the edgy hack and slash theme

8 Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops

Ten times better than Peace Walker. Tighter gameplay and story, pretty good bosses. I strongly recommend you play it =)

Much better than Peace Walker. Real bosses and real story. This is NOT a build-your-base simulator where you fight robots. This is a solid game =)

Calling to the Night... That's it

Fantastic game

9 Metal Gear

The original one that revolutionized the stealth genre of gaming. Nothing more to say.

10 Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

An incredible remake. It's a golden piece in the saga.

The Contenders

11 Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Great game only problem is it's too short. - HeavyDonkeyKong

My favorite Metal Gear game... Ground Zeroes is simply just awesome!

Come on, it may be short but it looks rad

12 Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake

Ahead of it's time, much of what made this great would be implimented in metal gear solid

13 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

This is an amazing game! It has the best Metal Gear game, along with Metal Gear Solid 2, both with improved graphics and HD! I can't get enough of this duo!


14 Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color)

Underrated classic on gameboy

15 Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D
16 Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence

No. This is an improved version of Metal Gear Solid 3, with better camera angles, similar to Metal Gear Solid 4 camera, and also additional content, such as metal gear 1 and 2 solid snake for the MSX. This is the best version of Metal Gear Solid 3 available.

I'm confused, is this a game similar to the Metal Gear Solid 4's database for PlayStation 3? - Gehenna

17 Metal Gear Acid
18 Metal Gear Solid Touch
19 Metal Gear: Ghost Babel
20 Metal Gear Survive

10/10 greatest game most underrated game in the series I play this game daily I have 500 hours or more I can't stop playing screw metal gear solid 2 or 3 this is the best THANK YOU KONAMI!
