Hideo Kojima suggests starting with Metal Gear Solid 3

Control scheme is more modern than earlier titles

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.
