Yup, chronological order. MGS was fun, but MGS2 just took all of the good parts and improved them. I appreciate a good mindfuck once in a while, and MGS2 most certainly is one. Plus MGS2 is probably the best of the series to mess with the guards in. The balance of stupid/dangerous is just right.
Solid Snake is just a player avatar. So is Raiden. I kind of liked seeing Snake from the outside, really, and Raiden was fun in his own way.
