In short: yes.

To put a longer spin on it: Kojima put a lot of work into each of these games. The evolution between each title is both intelligent and grand. If you put 5 minutes into playing every game in the series it becomes immediately obvious how much of a jump there is each time in both the amount and the depth of the mechanics at play. This means each game feels pretty different and never half-baked.

The first game is the only one that might feel a tad clunky, the game overall is meant to be tense, think Resident Evil-ish (Firefights are dangerous and stealth is generally a better option than getting rushed by three soldiers with automatics, but firefights are certainly still viable).

It's still superior to the Gamecube version (Twin Snakes) which is a remake using MGS2's engine, mechanics, and graphical upgrade, as you lose a lot of the charm of the original, plus they change some things that are questionable. Still an incredible game though. Every numbered game is an incredible experience well worth playing. The side games like Portable Ops or Peace Walker are also fun but not as necessary.

If you go into MGSV without playing any of the others though the story will be confusing as balls. The series takes place at different historical points between the 60s and 2014, MGSV takes place in 1984, after MGS3 and MGS Peace Walker, though a lot of the games content will likely reference the events to come.

To be fair, Midnight NZ time was the official intel up until like 24 hours ago. It was a bait-and-switch! :(

So when's steam gonna retroactively release every single MGS game so that it's not only the dang fifth game that's on there. Really I just wanna play 4 but I don't have a ps triple anymore. Cock.

Well they'd have to release both 3 and 4 (and probably Peace Walker) on PC first.

Also heads up, haven't followed up this morning to confirm but before I went to bed last night the crash bug for everyone appeared to be some new tech MGSV is running, SSE 4.1 or something, basically AMD Phenom processors and older aren't built for it and the game doesn't run, so watch out.

Thankfully I have an i7 in my laptop, dang I need to upgrade my desktop.


Edit:
They've confirmed an issue with AMD Phenom processors, and are hoping to have the patch out later today, which is crazy.
