But 2... I dunno. The whole thing felt way cheesier than 1. I guess it was pretty impossible to beat the experience of 1. I remember the first trailers being shown at Gamestop where Snake was hiding from Fortune, and I was like "oh god, another Raven-type fight." Except when it released... well, it was Raiden and not Snake. Huge disappointment. Kojima said later in many interviews that Raiden was introduced to show the character that would eventually replace Snake. Plus, the whole story behind 2, the fact it was essentially a clone of 1... I dunno. Just wasn't that good.
My two favorite boss fights, Psycho Mantis from MGS, and The End from MGS3.
Damn it... Now I'm gonna go play them this week.
"You can call me David."
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! /end by riding into the sunset
The End is also my favorite boss. Also holding him up and taking him out with the tranquilizer to get his camo and Mosin Nagant... that made that boss fight even better.
But I dunno, I disagree with everything about what you didn't like about MGS2, other than Snake obviously being a better character than Raiden. That said, I don't hate Raiden as much as I think a lot of people do (and I usually dislike the Japanese "pretty boy" kind of look in games). And he was less of a pansy in MGS4 which redeemed him a little bit for me. I do agree that MGS2 is the weakest in the series, but I still think it's an amazing game. The entire MGS series, along with HL2 and the episodes are my favorite games ever.
I also think I'm gonna have to replay these games soon too... sigh. And I still have to finish several other games (which I haven't played before). And then I'll have to play them AGAIN if/when this HD collection comes out!
