Can't see the main story being more than 30. I do all the side quests and like to mess around so I'll probably get 100+. Obviously more if I like the multiplayer, but I didn't care for the multiplayer in GTA4.

The average first run of GTA's story is about 20-30 hours. I could see this one being on the long end.

I remember reading somewhere that there is supposed to be fewer storyline missions than GTA IV had. Mostly because of complaints about IV's story being too long. I can't recall where I read it, though.

Read that too, I think it might have been that GI preview from some months back. Problem with GTA IV's story length though, it was just boring. =\ Hopefully each character has a ton of personal missions that aren't factored into the main story.

Probably around 20-30. Anything more, and it would start to drag on. There should be a lot of side stuff though.

I think you're right. And I'm also hoping for some personal missions too. Given the whole three protagonist thing, it seems somewhat likely.

Eh, IV's story wasn't that boring to me. Sure, some parts could've been taken out, but I was cool with it.

Rockstar could easily make the story longer than 30 hours and still have interest with this game. Largely because of the fact they're working in threes off the bat in this one. There's three stories to tell and three perspectives to look at. That right there could bring a much longer natural experience.
