I'm so behind with the Metal Gear Solid series it's bordering on pathetic. Since playing through the famous bait n' switch in MGS 2, I've maybe only given the franchise a few hours of my life.

I made it across to the bridge in MGS 3 and dropped a few missions in Ac!d, but after becoming too impatient with the incessant loading screens in MGS 4, Konami's classic tactical espionage thriller has fallen by the wayside.

Well it's a good thing series director Hideo Kojima recently offered a bit of advice, on Twitter, for those (like myself) looking to hop into the franchise with the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection.

The famed director also noted that for those wanting to catch up on all the nonsensical brilliance of MGS and MGS 2, the upcoming Legacy Collection includes a digital novel which can be used to become acquainted with their stories.

So what does everyone else think? Is Metal Gear Solid 3 the best in the series for newcomers? All I know for sure, is that I have a whole lot of cutscenes to start playing through.
