The new issue of Game Informer has all kinds of Snake fun with coverage of Metal Gear Solid V, but it is news about the game’s prequel, Ground Zeroes, that is making all the kerfuffle.

BTW- kerfuffle is an actual word. No spell check went off so I had to see for myself.

It seems that the main story of Ground Zeroes took them all of two hours to beat.



Two hours.

Now this was not including any side quests or extra exclusives but can you really imagine them adding much more than an hour or two more to the proceedings?

For a “game” that has a price range of $20-$40 that is low-class hooker territory for 2-4 hours.

I have a feeling this will be included in a “special edition” of MGS V whenever it is released, so I will be waiting until then to play it. Sure, there are plenty of indie games priced around the same for a few hours of content but I, and you, should expect more from a franchise this big.
