How long did it take you to beat MGS4?

Roughly a 1 1/2 days.. bought it at midnight launch... after the install was completed about 12:30 (i live around the corner from the GameStop), i started playing the game... not skipping any cutscenes and trying to find every secret.

I ended up getting a little confused around the "tracking bit" in the forest area. I ended at the end of Act II.. went to bed for a few hours (around 3pm that I said I was really trying to find all secrets, lol) and woke back up to finish the rest of the game by like halfway through the second full day.

Yeah first playthrough for me was around 18 hours on Solid Normal. The longevity of the game was due to all the cutscenes. In fact, skipping all cutscenes and codec conversations cuts down to 5 hours of total play but why would you skip them?! THEY'RE ALL AWESOME!

Once MGS collection comes, whats the chronological order to play the MGS games?

Keep in mind I have MGS 1 remake for Gamecube still...

chronologically it's MGS3, PW, MGS1, MGS2

but personally you should play them in the order of release, not storywise

MGS1, MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, PW is the order to play, there is Portable Ops which comes after MGS3 and before PW but iv heard it's not important to the story and it's only on the psp
I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

Cutscenes count to your timer, FYI.

Mine was around 15, so probably 12-13 hours. The act with Raven was terribly annoying.

With cutscenes or without? Probably 20 hours with cutscenes, 5 hours without cutscenes. .

Minus the cut scenes, it took a little less than 3 hours. very short game

My first play through took just under 16 hours iirc, but I had to skip the ending scene because I had to head out.
I didn't expect it to last that long but I watched about 45 minutes of it.
