To be honest I think most of the cutscenes are too long.

In mgs1 I watched all the cutscenes, but I skipped the codecs.
In mgs2 I watched most of them, but some of them just bored me to hell. Especially the last part of the tanker part.
Mgs3 I watched all the
Portable ops and peacewalker I though had pretty good cutscenes so I watched them all.
I skipped almost every single cutscene in mgs4 and watched them all on youtube.

I skipped almost every single codec in the entire series though...

The cutscenes were good but too much unneeded stuff makes them too long.

Especially mgs4.

A thirty minute cutscene is unacceptable.

Didn't one of the cutscenes in MGS4 top 45 minutes?
If your accuracy is over 10%, you're trying too hard.

After you beat the final boss, there's gonna be abunch of cutscenes. And apparently they all add up to about 90mins.

I actually like the way MGS does it. Especially MGS4. Don't like it? Skip it. Is it a long cutscene and you wanna see the second half but not the first? We cut them up into segments.
Look a you.... sticking to the plan.

A bunch of the cutscenes could have easily been gameplay.
I'm watching fights and thinking "why am I not playing this?"

Sure. They have great cinematography.
Why? Because **** you is why.

they are terrible

feels like im watching a damn soap opera....

how many times do trained soldiers have to reload their guns AFTER being in position to fire?
that scene with ocelot on the boat announcing his plans was beyond stupid, the soldiers literary reloaded their guns 3 friggin times and had to take to take the stance just as many times

The one with Eva on the mountaintop ended way too early
