Best Metal Gear Games


The Top Ten

1 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

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)

I like this game. Very sexy. - RevolverOcelot

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!

This is the first Metal Gear game I played. - N3GAT1V3

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

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.

A Metal Gear game with a hint of Assassins Creed and Red Dead Redemption? What's not to like?!

Great story, fantastic graphics ( both old and next gen consoles), first mgs game with open world, tons of stuff to unlock and upgrade ( weapons, costumes etc. Can be developed). Need I say more?

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

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

1 word: Co-op.

8 Metal Gear

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

9 Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops

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

Amazing boss fight. awesome gameplay.good. good story

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 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!


13 Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake

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

14 Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color)

Underrated classic on gameboy

15 Metal Gear Acid
16 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

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

17 Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence

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

18 Metal Gear Solid

The only MGS game so awesome it appeared twice. - Dominicmgm
