I have Metal Gear Solid on ps2, never played it though, think I should give it a shot then work my way up to the newer ones?
Beat them chronologically:
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (X360/PS3)
Metal Gear Solid 1 (PS1/PC/PSNetwork)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PS3)
As for The Phantom Pain, I'm 99% sure the hospital scene is set in 1972 - just after Snake's wake up from coma.
"After Big Boss became exposed to nuclear radiation at Bikini Atoll, he was discovered to be infertile. Not wanting to let the genetic legacy of the greatest soldier to have ever lived simply die out, as well as not wanting to lose the Patriots' icon, Zero hatched a plan to create clones of Big Boss. This became known as the Les Enfants Terribles project.
In 1972, when Big Boss returned from a mission in a coma, Zero used this opportunity to extract DNA from him."
This can mean one thing: The game's storyline is divided into two different times - before Peace Walker (around 1972) and after Ground Zeroes (post 1974).
I would say, play them in the following order:
Which is not only the order in which I like them the most, but its also the correct order.
As for your prediction, it is obviously not 1972, for one simple fact, Big Boss had all his body parts during Peace Walker (1974).
I mean, it could all be a hallucination, every single thing in the trailer could mean f*ck all, if Kojima decides to go that way he will do it. So in the end, anything could happen at this point and its kind of futile trying to judge it all, because there are way too many outcomes, seeing as the whole point of the games are to make you think " what the f*ck? " " how the f*ck? " the whole time.
What annoys me is that I am pretty sure there is nothing in any kind of factual information in ANY of the games that indicate Big Boss losing any limbs, other than being injured from battles with Snake. If this is true and it is an injury from a Snake battle, it would have to be set AFTER 1995, which makes no sense to just jump from 1974/whenever Ground Zeroes is set, all the way to 1995 (The first Metal Gear game). So we must be missing something, the limb in itself is a hallucination as well, either that or he just gets a new arm, I mean Zadornov in Peace Walker seemed to have a working false hand. Possible I guess, it just annoys me because I want evidence to back up this happening, and its annoying if Kojima wants to just make up anything then figure out ways to reset it in order to fall into lines with the later told plot lines.
