I'm voting MGS2. While I love Cyborg raiden, I think he had the best character development in MGS2 by far. He was really the only one questioning just what the **** was actually going on. I prefer raiden to snake. I don't know why, haha.

I prefer MGS2 Raiden. At first I thought MGS4 Raiden was just way too sad but now I'm not completely without sympathy for him to be honest. As far as he knows, he loses his son, his girlfriend left him for a man twice his age and after he saves Sunny, he's captured and experimented on being forced to become a cyborg. He lost his humanity and his only family along with any possibility for one. Coupled with the fact that through all this he's coping with the trauma of his memories as a child soldier and is STILL helping Snake destroy the Patriots he makes for a pretty strong guy, I think he's entitled to feel sorry for himself a little.
Still, I always have a soft spot for the "rookie" Raiden.

MGR, in 2 he was a rookie and in 4 he lost a lot and was nearly killed.
So? You're like that guy that only likes a football team when they are about to win the super bowl.
In 2 he was a rookie but not at the end. Besides, he had something that was lacking in MGS. Humanity. Yeah Snake had humanity but until MGS2 we were used to super bad asses who barely had feelings and were extremely manly.
Raiden was more relatable and even though I like Solid Snake more than Raiden, Raiden is a better written character than Snake.
In MGS4 he still seems like MGS2 Raiden but like a cyborg.
MGR Raiden doesn't even seem like MGS2 OR 4 Raiden unless you have codec conversations with people. Then he seems like himself.
PS3, Vita, 3DS. PSN: xLionhartx I love DMC, DmC, and MGR. Deal with it.
