I have the Metal Gear HD collection, im planning on playing all the games this month. Only one im missing is Metal Gear Solid.

Im debating whether or not I should get Twin Snakes. I have a Wii so I would need to buy a gamecube controller as well.

Its 40 bucks used and 109 new!

Should I get Twin Snakes or should I just wait for a Metal Gear Solid Remake?

there won't be another MGS remake anytime soon, go for Twin Snakes.

You could get a PSN card and get the original MGS as digital for 10$. I luckily found that remake at a movie store 4 or 5 years ago for 6$ while it was selling expensively on Amazon.

This. Even though I own and have beaten twin snakes a few times, I still prefer the original playstation version overall. They really nailed it with the voice acting in the original, lol.

Why play a remake if you don't have to? Get the original MGS.

I say get the original off the PSN (like what everyone else is saying). I love The Twin Snakes and it is totally worth the $40 but if you're not a big Metal Gear fan then just get MGS1 for $10 off the PSN.

If you end up liking the game a lot then go back and buy The Twin Snakes.

Seeing as MGS4 uses the Twin Snakes accents it might be less jarring to play that instead of the original.

Don't forget you need a memory card too TC. Don't get a 1000 block one as the Wii has issues with them. Also, try and get a white Japanese controller because it has a 3 metre cable. I got one for Christmas for $29 brand new. 256 memory cards are around $16.

Anyway, just don't get the copy of TTS I've got my eye on because I'm getting it next pay day! : )
