How many people are into this series? I've had an aversion to stealth games for pretty much my whole gaming life but I've finally forced myself to play MGS this year (despite having owned the first three games for probably 5-6 years now). And I have to admit, it's not too bad. I'm finding the characters and story more appealing than the gameplay, but I'm also not minding the stealth too much. Really like Otacon and got a few chuckles from some of his lines when Snake first met him. Mei Ling is annoying though, and holy stereotype. I'm thinking I might pick up the HD Collection when I'm ready to play 2 and 3, since I'm sure they don't hold up well on an HDTV. But we'll see.
