What is your favorite Metal Slug game in the series?

My personal favorite was Metal Slug X for the original PS1. I remember trying it out at Funcoland at the time, at first I really hated it and thought that it was a bad Contra imitation :( My brother bought it a month or so afterwards and then I really warmed up to it. I loved how they had all these mini games in it and the survival mode. Now IMO I think the Metal Slug games are better than the Contra series... except for Metal Slug 6 on the Anthology... something about that one feels unlike a Metal Slug game.

Maybe because Metal Slug 6 had KOF characters Ralf and Clark? It does feel like a Metal Slug, it just had new features and etc. which I thought were pretty cool.

As for my fav., I must say the first one. I simply love it. It's easy to play and very enjoyable. I know the levels the back of my head and beat the game countless of times without continuing. Not my fav. because it was easy, just wasn't all god damn frustrating like the other ones which doesn't make it fun to play at all.

Mine is still the original metal slug because I have fond memories of emptying all my change into the arcade machines.

Thats a tough question as I love them all. But I would have to go with 1 and 2 as the were the first ones I played on those neo-geo arcade machines with pockets of quarters when i was like 11. Ahhh memories...

I think the first Metal Slug I played was on the Neo Geo Pocket Color, which was just Metal Slug 1, I believe. So that version is my favorite just for nostalgia. Arcade-wise, I have played all of the Metal Slugs, and 3 is my favorite just because of how ridiculous the last two missions are. But they're all good.

As for 6...aren't the graphics a little different from the other games? I think they're more noticeably redrawn, but I'm not sure anymore.
