So, for those of you that don't know much about me, I love Metal Gear, like a lot. In fact saying I love it may be an understatement in itself. As I sit here and stare at my profile picture and all of my Metal Gear games and related items around me this becomes painfully apparent. It is because of this profound adoration that I try to play through the main series at least once a year and all of the information coming out about Metal Gear Solid 5 has got me particularly eager to jump in. Whether you have already played and love the series or are just curious to see what Metal Gear is all about, why not stop by and "Chill With Phil" on your Saturday night!
So this is the part of the post where I detail out how this playthrough is going to go down. First off, no, I am NOT playing the Twin Snakes version of MGS. For the sake of flashbacks in later games on top of the fact that I love showing how games in a series have grown and changed as they have went on this is the way we are going to do it. Going hand in hand with my "showing how games have changed" angle I REFUSE to play the series in chronological order as this, to simply put it, is the wrong way to play it. I mean you can have your opinion, but it's just not the right one. <3
If you disagree with this I implore you to rationalize why you think that chronological order is the way to play through down in the comments.

SeymourDuncan17 Too lazy to put all my favorite Pokemon/Personas/Demons in one image, but Shadow Chie is yet another favorite of mine. DOMINATRIX BANANA HEEEEEEAD! :3True Green Sphere I like it when comments suddenly spark new blog ideas in your mind.Larxinostic PSA to the collective Waifu / Pokemon / SMT War combatants.

It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.Dreamweaver There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough. OverlordZetta I see your "favorite Pokemon" and "favorite demon" and raise you a "favorite full party"!The Dyslexic Laywer Man they really blue balled me hard with that Ip Man vs Mike Tyson fight.Parismio Well, I did it. I pre-ordered Fire Emblem Fates. Guess who I'm siding with?:LynxAmali First Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run, now GameTrailers. Some people just want to watch the world burn. If you excuse me, I'm going to go cry and weep in a corner.GoofierBrute GameTrailers just announced on Facebook they're shutting down. It's a damn shame, since I rather liked them, despite not agreeing with a lot of what they've said. Best of luck to everyone who worked there.JohnSmith123 That's a really short campaign Destiny has isn't it? Wow lolNiwannabe Goddamn I'm excited for Street Fighter V. This is gonna be my first Street Fighter ever, and Ryu being in Smash is definitely helping me transition to more traditional fighting games. I'll probably end up playing Chun-Li anyway, though.CoilWhine I'm just now 2/3 of the way done with Tearaway Unfolded's campaign, 45% to 100%. This game is really long!Amna Umen You people love your Persona, having never played any of them would I appreciate 4? It should be known I found Valkyria Chronicles too anime-y to enjoy though.OrochiLeona One week to go. Oh ho ho ho.
RadicalYoseph What I've gathered from the quick posts the last two days is that demons from SMT look like genitals.
