Oh dear. According to this CVG piece, Metal Gear Solid 4’s cut-scenes run up to 90 minutes a pop.
The info’s taken from the latest edition of UK mag PSW, who’s quoted as saying, “MGS4’s story is massive. The videogame equivalent of all three Godfather movies on one disc.
“As you’d expect, you’ll spend a lot of time watching cut-scenes, so if you found previous games’ story exposition laborious, then you’d better find yourself a nice cushion and plenty of teabags in readiness for MGS4’s.
“They can be skipped, but you’ll be missing out on some of the finally crafted examples of FMV footage anywhere in gaming.”
For the record, the only things we do for 90 minutes are write and sleep. Just saying.
