Agreed (as a whole on the gameplay front), although for me (talking about the game series):
- Splinter Cell: better gameplay mechanics than Metal Gear Solid and has more replayability value than Metal Gear Solid (I played Chaos Theory on PC/PS2, and I played Double Agent on PC once and on PS2 once on the console, and twice via PCSX2, an emulator in which
is famous for betatesting), but its storylines aren't THAT original or has an original take on the common storyline formula (e.g. US government has rogue people, Third Echelon gets involved in some yellow/brown man's country blah blah blah blah SNORE).
- Metal Gear Solid: gameplay mechanics are primitive compared to Splinter Cell and its games lack replayability (that and the idiotic instructions that Roy Campbell (Paul Eiding) gives out make me cringe a bit, such as "press the X button to f*ck Naomi Hunter in a 69er whilst she gives you a vaccine", and "press the O button to give Mei Ling a dickslap"), BUT the strongest point for me is how the storylines are structured, and how thrilling and/or original they feel, sans the lengthy cutscenes.
Having said that, even though I prefer Splinter Cell on a gameplay basis, I tend to prefer the Metal Gear series mainly because of the gaming experience as a whole, and I feel that the storylines (and the gaming experience that comes with it) plays a huge part in what makes Metal Gear what it is today
