has any one played through both these and what are your thoughts. I tried a few times but couldnt get into them.
I think I'm too into current videogames and the high quality graphics to really get into such an old game. I did however read summaries of the plot just so I could undertand the overall MG saga better. Having played only MGS3 it was weird and kind of sad to learn that Naked Snake turned out to be a bad guy...
ya me too. im used to the older arcade games but many cant wait to get these with the hd set according to hd posts. maybe its the top down 2d i cant get into anymore. mgs3 subs. any day of the week.
I've played them, I really enjoyed them, but then I grew up with these types of graphics so they don't bother me at all.

Neither the graphics nor archaic gameplay were really a problem for me. I played and enjoyed Metal Gear 1.. and I'm playing through Metal Gear 2 which is ten times better than 1...
I really wish to see remakes of both of these... especially MG 1...
I've played them and I am happy i did. first time i played i was completely lost. it gave me a headache and i stopped playing it for a while. but then i accquired a map from the web and it helped alot and i had alot of fun.
i too hope to see a remake, even though after playing through the first two games MGS feels like a remake & a Sequel rolled into one game. lol
Yeah MGS kind of removed the need for a remake of the Metal Gear games.

First time I played them, the fan-translated versions, before MGS3 Subsistence was released, I was lost as balls and needed a guide for the game. Now all I need help with is the codec numbers when they change as part of the story but the game expects you to look at the case/use the manual to decipher the code rather than just tell you. Something I hope is fixed somehow in the HD collection.
Sure I could just go online, but there's something about breaking the 4th wall and grabbing my handy game case to progress in the game. Hell, I still go to grab my copy of MGS1 to find Meryl's Codec number despite remembering that it's 140.15
Played them, clocked them, loved them. And this was back in the day (MG1 was released in the UK for the MSX). Well, the second I played a fan translation, but I've replayed both several times.
I don't understand how anyone could have trouble with them. They're pretty straightforward for games from 1990 and that era. MG2 especially is quite slick and streamlined.
I prefer MG2 to MG1, Ghost Babel, MGS2, and MGS4 (which I found confusing and dull). MGS and MGS3 are still top though.
