Aside from the obvious connection, are the games at all similar? And more importantly, can I play MGR:R without having played any of the other Metal Gear games? --- Now Playing: ZOE HD, Okami.

No not even close. Your probly gonna need to play MGS 2 but while not necessary I suggest you play then all so you have a better sense of whats going on. --- psn: bdawgtimes84

Why just 2? If anything 4 would be more important than 2 for Rising.
But yeah, play them all. In numerical order. --- PSN ID: TheBlackFool

There will be some small references to past games, but nothing important to the plot. --- There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can't

I've only played MGS3 which has very little to do with Raiden. I'm just getting MGR for the gameplay, I'm sure most of the past games will be summarized in the lengthy codecs anyway. --- What is faith then but persistent hope in the face of relentless doubt.
