I"m a PC-only gamer (#PCMasterRace) and also I thought around buying MGSV. The poor thing is the I"ve never ever played any kind of of the various other Metal equipment Solid games, perform I miss out top top a big portion of the video game for the reason?

PS: i m really sorry if I wrote something wrong, ns don"t speak English (I"m Chilean)

You could yet I wouldn"t recommend it. The steel Gear series is really self referential.

You are watching: Can you play metal gear solid 5 without playing the others

The main story would be understandable but most the the side stuff will certainly go fully over your head.

girlfriend will have very tiny idea as to what the hell is walk on (but then, even world who"ve played all the metal Gear gamings are confused).

I"d recommend at the an extremely least reading a wiki, or finding a youtube explanation.

Better yet, pay for a subscription here on inter-base.net and also watch all of Metal equipment Scanlon.

I"m to plan on picking up the heritage collection and also going through it, virtually as a refresher and likewise because I never finished MGS3 or 4 - acquired most of the way through but for one reason or another I didn"t finish them.

Also not a negative idea to find out if you in reality like steel Gear games as they"re always...different.

So I"d recommend yes.

Maybe. Ns wonder if MGS V will fill the blanks v some in-menu backstory choose MGS1 and also MGS 2 yet my finest bet would certainly be to suffer it very first hand. There"s no guarantee they"ll fill in the blanks for you.

Ya, probably. Based upon the timeline. Return you"ll miss out on out on part stuff story wise.

All the gamings are crazy, though, and self included so also if you don"t recognize the history of points you"ll still have the ability to follow the story (well, follow in the same means anyone else have the right to follow a Metal gear Solid story =P) no matter what video game you played first. None of them require girlfriend to recognize anything walk in.

I"m sorry, but I can"t agree v this in ~ all. MGS4 specifically requires friend to know the previous gamings - it"s 90% callbacks come previous entries, and also the already bizantine ending might be even harder to follow. Hell, MGS2 makes little sense if friend aren"t familiar with 1, because of the way that game parodies to principles of sequelization and also power fantasies.

V might be the most standalone so far in state of straight sequels, yet I"d to speak you"re absent a many context if you don"t see large Boss" origin in 3 and also subsequent foreshadowing that his lower to villainy in tranquility Walker - especially when you enter everything around the Boss.

Are friend talking around ground zero or the yes, really MGSV becouse there is a world of difference. Noone has played MGSV and also can answear your question but if MGSV adheres to the ide of the other games in the series you better play them in stimulate or no at all. MGS1 is additionally the finest game so much so no issue what girlfriend are finest of starting with that one.

Ground zero is an entirely various thing as its prefer 30min that gameplay and also another 10h the challanges if youre into that and its gameplay very well stand on that own. As much as the story goes if you desire to gain anything that it simply play indigenous the beginning of the metal equipment solid franchise.

Your English is perfect, at the very least in this post.

The game you want to play is split in 2 time-zones. MGSV: soil Zeroes takes place in 1975 (and is not a full game, in-case friend didn"t know), yet MGSV: The Phantom ache takes location 9 years later in 1984.

1964 – Metal equipment Solid 3: line Eater1970 – Metal gear Solid: Portable Ops1974 – Metal equipment Solid: tranquility Walker1975 – Metal gear Solid V: ground Zeroes1984 – Metal gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain1995 – metal Gear1999 – Metal equipment 2: solid Snake2005 – Metal gear Solid2007/09 – Metal gear Solid 2: sons of Liberty2014 – Metal equipment Solid 4: guns of the Patriots2018 – Metal equipment Rising: Revengeance

Good luck!

weird enough, this game proceeds on from tranquility Walker, which was the the very least played of any kind of Metal Gear video game barring the MSX games. I doubt that it is virtually a offered that they will certainly summarize the large strokes the the plot with some sort tape entry or journal.

Ground Zeroes already does the to a certain degree v things favor Paz"s diary entries. Those tended rather to flavour yet probably complement any large strokes sort of document.

It won"t aid cement any type of notion the timeline, which might be reasonably important for someone to gain the many out of the story.

You have actually plenty that time to play through the collection before 5 is out. It"s no that large of a time sink.

Don"t worry around it and also just go in and have fun. If you find a story bit that you feeling is confusing because they space implying you play an previously game to understand it, decision for yourself if you need to google it up and get that piece of info. The vapor overlay is pretty useful to open up a quick internet browser session to get a tiny info there is no alt-tabbing if you require it.

Here"s hope MGS V has actually some type of back-story section to cater specifically for those that simply want to dive best in. Would make a lot of sense if they setup to relax a 5th game in the main collection to the PC and also (for the time being) carry out not consider porting the previously titles in the close to future (wishful thinking at the moment yet I"d buy the in a heartbeat need to they announce and also release them with reasonable quality).

madmadhascrashd: I"d really recommend at least watching playthroughs that MGS 1-4. The best means to perform that would be to subscribe to large Bomb Premium and also watch Metal equipment Scanlon, yet I"m certain there"s plenty of video out over there of those games. Drew and also Dan have committed to playing MGS3 in the brand-new year, and also I imagine they"ll execute 4 as well. If girlfriend don"t pat or at least watch videos of the ahead main gamings in the series, MGSV won"t make any type of sense, not also if girlfriend read detailed wiki pages. They"re simply too dense and also weird, and you really have to see what"s keep going to know it. I"ve play 3, 4, and also Ground Zeroes, and despite my finest efforts to recognize what is going on, ns didn"t really recognize much around 1 or 2 until I watched Metal gear Scanlon.

probably not. The story is for this reason DEEP through crazy lore and also an exceptional amount the double/triple the cross that it"s hard for also fans the the collection to keep straight. Walking in without understanding the story at this point would it is in pretty lot useless. You"d be fully lost.

My tip would be to track under some lore or allows play videos on Youtube and also watch them indigenous the beginning, and also maybe invest some time ~ above the Metal equipment Wiki reading the plot synopsis of the gamings and all of the major character bios. That will at least give you the basics.

The best method though is to one of two people play v the gamings or watch allows Plays top top Youtube. You can probably skip metal Gear and also Metal gear 2 since Metal equipment Solid go a really an excellent job that explaining what happened, however you at least need to be familiar of the events in Metal equipment Solid, Metal equipment Solid 2, Metal equipment Solid 3, and also Metal equipment Solid 4 to really acquire the picture.

If friend are trying to find what gamings to play based on the story timeline to store things straight forward, I would watch/play the games in this order

Metal equipment Solid 3 Metal equipment Solid Portable Ops (optional)Metal gear Solid tranquility WalkerMetal gear (optional)Metal gear 2 (optional)Metal equipment SolidMetal gear Solid 2Metal gear Solid 4

If you desire to suffer it the way we did and also have the complete mindfuck of do the efforts to number it all out, then watch/play them in this order

Metal gear (optional)Metal equipment 2 (optional)Metal equipment SolidMetal equipment Solid 2Metal equipment Solid 3Metal equipment Solid Portable Ops (optional)Metal gear Solid 4Metal gear Solid tranquility Walker
