I too thought MGS was crap. Then I played the games. It's my favorite series. Not anyone's fault you can't appreciate the amazing story, incredible characters or the well done stealth gameplay. Your opinions aren't facts.
You sure haven't played many games if MGS is your favorite series.
The series is so weird, in a bad way.
Maybe you just don't like stealth games. Many people who don't like MGS is because they want to kill everything in the screen and don't like tedious thing like hiding and avoid being detected by the enemy. Story and gameplay wise MGS even better than FF in their golden era.
Wait did somebody post that Uncharted franchise is overrated and overhyped? That's crazy though. IMHO Uncharted is THE franchise of this generation.
No. The Souls series is, and Uncharted does not even come anywhere close.
I put more hours into the Souls games than any other this gen, I think Diablo 2 is the only game I've ever put more hours into. So I love the Souls franchise. But they are not mainstream games. And while they pack stellar gameplay, they do not have the overall quality of Uncharted, which is "greatest of all time" status for production value, voice acting, dialogue, etc. And it's a franchise anyone can enjoy, a franchise that might turn nongamers into gamers. The souls series is really for the hardcore.
