The original Metal Gear Solid on PS1 was definitely a great game for its time as well as being my introduction to the series, but I thought it would be a little too obvious of a choice to list for this kind of thread. It's a hugely popular and influential entry in the Metal Gear series. That said, I think it would be very interesting to see a remake of the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake or possibly even a remake of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Otherwise, a sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, perhaps more in line with the ambitions of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, could also be very cool.

Anyway, I'm curious to read about your personal opinions on these games and whether or not you would prefer a remake of the first two Metal Gear games, a remake of MGS4, or a sequel to Platinum's Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance?

It's a crime those 2 first games have not been modernized. They arguably have the most epic encounters there as Solid Snake confronts Big Boss.

I can live with MGS4 in its current state and revengeance not getting a sequel, altho i wouldnt say no to either.

Make a movie of MG with Kyle Reese instead.

The answer is MGS 1 and 2 remake ofc, not sure why that has to be said tbh.

Why a remake of 4? Instead of MGS 1/2/3 remake?

Edit: Ok, I read the OP. Not particularly interested in any of these.

Having a remake of MGS4 would be great, they can hire a writer that actually knows how to write in coherent sentences so people can understand what's going on, because then and only then will the story make sense. (actually you could do that with all the games)

Also condense about 16 hours of the 30 hours or so of cutscenes. lol.

I love the story of MGS4 and I'd agree to that too.

Its also why I even like MGSV more. I actually got to spend majority of the time PLAYING vs "time to sit down and wait this cut scene funa be a while" lol I almost fell asleep during one, not cause it was bad, I love the fucking game, but 1 cut scene dead ass started to be the opening length of a film and I just remember being so tired, out here begging for a save lol

Remaking (re-imagining even) the old 8bit games could be a lot of fun. Especially if they make 'em like 80's action movies with a lot of muscle and explosions, instead of the grand sweeping themes and symbolism wank of the later games.

Maybe.

Its simply too much of the series to really ignore and not have it part of the remakes. You can still have that and still have muscles and explosions btw.

I don't personally feel the need to replay through shadow moses a 3rd time with better graphics.

If I were interested in any sort of remake, it would be for MGS2.

The MGS games don't need any remakes, they still look great. They are also so idiosyncratic that I can only see a remake by a third party fucking it up. Rising 2 has the highest probability of being great even without kojipro

MG 1 and 2 by far.
I wish Kojima got around to that and the WW2 Boss game.

I remember there was a very old rumor MGSV's 2nd half was going to be Metal Gear 1 and 2 - but of course that never happened.
One of the coolest things about MGS1 is that it assumed you played the MSX originals. I always loved that the 8bit games actually mattered and held huge significance throughout the entire series.

If remade, MG 1 and 2 should be contained within one game as two acts(and possibly Ghost Babel as a DLC act). Both are slightly too short as standalone stories.

MG 1&2, no shadow moses there. Never in any sort of modern graphics. A remake for those would make so much sense.
Ah my mistake. a MG1 Remake would be cool, but I would prefer Kojima to be involved in some capacity.

I loved Revengance, but there is no way in FUCK I'm going to pick a sequel to a Platinum game over a proper Metal Gear stealth title. Put me in the "anything but Rising" camp.

Hmm. The only thing I remember about what The Phantom Pain could have been was the cut mission Kingdom of the Flies.



Even the original idea they had for Rising, an interquel to Metal Gear Solid 2 and 4, I'd love to have seen that.

Prime Snake in MG 1 and 2 Remade.

Id like a Snake adventure between MGS1 and MGS2, and even MGS2 played as Snake not Raiden lol
And like Someone said, that WW2 Boss game would be cool

Ofcourse a new game, Rising 2. Rising was a rough diamond, wasn't entirely sold on it but it was made within a very short timeframe.

MGS4 is a narratively deeply flawed game, a remaster wouldn't solve a thing.

MG1 remake has my vote.

MGS4 doesn't need a remake, it just needs a port.

Remake all of them except 5 and Twin Snakes, I have played those :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:

I couldn't get into Rising, so I don't want a sequel of that.

First two games with a modern engine. I still think the first is the best game story and character wise. A 2 remake playing with the option of playing as Snake instead of Raiden would be nice as well but that's when the series started going off the rails to me.

Since 1+2 are perfect the way they are and 4 is a complete mess of a story, that rapes the lore of 1+2, Rising is my choice. At least with Rising you know it's just a parody story but the gameplay is exciting.

No, just let the series rest.

Without Kojima and his old team they'd be as soulless as Metal Gear Survive.

I was always against the WW2 Boss game, mainly because it made no sense to me because it's unrelated to Metal Gear.
A spin off yeah, but no mainline

I wouldn't trust anyone to remake MG 1 and 2 outside of Kojima. They'd basically be building the narrative from scratch.

Gimme an MGS1 remake anyday since more of the foundations have been laid.

Imagine the creative freedom though when remastering MG1.

I'd love to see Bluepoint take a swing at this.

MGS4 remake.

It is the only one you can’t play outside the primal platform.

In any case I already played all of them.
