As much as I want to vote for the FF series, this gen FF sucks.

FF at its best>> MGS>>>FF at its worst

MGS currently>>>> FF currently.


While I think both series have pushed the industry forward in the past, both of them are also in danger of becoming out dated.
Both PW and 4 were fun but massively flawed, especially in narrative. Whats more, MGS story telling technique of using overly long dialogue is becoming less and less appealing in the modern age of gaming when more and more of a games story is being told within gameplay. Having all games sharing the one time line and the same cast of characters is kind of limiting. I mean, do we really need a third BB prequel showing us the development of the character whose out come we already know?
And the FF series is just a mess at the moment. SE's continued effort to try and force Lightning down our throats was old before XIII-2, and XIV, bleh. Meanwhile, we have no word the localization of fan favourite Type 0 and SE constant "please wait for VS" is now falling on deaf ears.

The MGS has a more promising immediate future, but they can only release so many games about one character getting ever so slightly angry. FF needs for SE to take a break and seriously reconsider their current strategy, and start again fresh for XV

MGS is more consistent but I'm really not a fan. I'd prefer Final Fantasy but I'll gladly skip on the newer ones like the XIII series or XIV

I would of said Metal Gear but since 4 came along and ruined everything. . .


Final Fantasy 13 sucked pretty bad but since those games are pretty self contained, it doesn't ruin my enjoyment of past games in the series in the way MGS4 did.


So I voted Final Fantasy

i loved mgs 1 2 3 4 and peacewalker, but portable ops, portable ops plus both suck, and acid 1 and 2 are average-ish.

mgs4 wasn't nearly as bad for the mgs series as ff13 was for the ff series; at least mgs4 was a good game

People like you really make my head hurt. You can't compare two completely different series. It's just stupid. I'd say Final Fantasy but I'd feel kinda bad since FF's RPG series and MGS is an action/stealth game. It's different and I like both for different reasons so no. I'm not choosing one over the other.

It's a matter of taste, really. Some won't like it, some will. I personally love it too, but it definitely has its flaws.
