The main reason I trudge through some of the more terrible final fantasy games is because that series has some damn good storytelling they almost become like books that you want to finish because you want to know how they end but at the same time you don't want it to end because then it's over also run on sentences.

I think the difference is the way the story is told. In Metal Gear Solid it's built around the suspense genre and the action is over-the-top and dramatic without being cheesy or stupid. The first one also had that cool mystery behind it and "OH ****" moments near the end as the plot all came together.

You can tell it's made by Obsidian, because they didn't bother with any quality control.
On uberhigh settings, the textures don't match the meshes. The character models are inconsistent. The imported meshes from FO3 don't match up with the altered models.
