Metal Slug this Metal Slug that
I was having a nice MVS session mid week and had a thought after playing Metal Slug. Sometimes you gotta leave something a while then play it again to appreciate how good it is, what really got me thinking was how nice the graphics & backgrounds were.
I played MS5 shortly after wards which was released 7 years later and despite loving the game equally as much my thoughts were could a non NG gamer who had no knowledge of the release dates of the NG slugs put them in any kind of order.

Say for instance this non NG gamer ( but he could be a experienced gamer in general say a bloke of similar age to us old timers here 28+). If they were to play each game without seeing the title screen to give them a clue do you think they would have any chance of putting them in year/sequence order.

My thoughts yes and no, I suspect some may possibly pick MS3 as being the latest game due to the size of it and arguably the flashiest graphics. But apart from that I reckon it would be a big struggle considering the quality of the first game which although is maybe not as hectic in places it is still on par with the rest in terms of graphics.

I know this is a weird thread and probably a bit pointless but its one of them unusual thoughts I seem to suffer from. What do you guys think about a non NG gamers chance of even being remotely correct.

Ever thought about putting down the bottle, for good, STE ? Pfft

On an on-topic note... I think they could at least infer that Metal Slug 1 is the first game due to the fact that there are only 2 characters. They probably would think MS 3 is the newest, like you said.
