About how long does it take to beat Metal Gear 1 and 2? I'm thinking about maybe playing them after I beat Snake Eater.

In the Middle East we don't hunt foxes, we hunt jackals. Instead of fox hounds we use royal harriers.

Quite a while actually. If you're not rushing you'll get some excellent playtime out of them

No direct quotes for you though, I haven't beaten either in ages so I cannot remember my time.

I think I beat Metal Gear in about 4-5 hours or so, but that was using an MSX emulator. Metal Gear 2 took significantly longer, about 7-8 hours I think. But I can't be sure really, because I was playing the game in bits and pieces. Like many 80s games, some of the things you have to do in Metal Gear 1 and 2 don't really make sense, so thank goodness there's guides for them here, or I simply wouldn't know what to do.

only a few hours for both...if u watch all story sequences and sumwat good at the game, probably 7-8 hours for mgs1 and 15 hrs for mgs2

Wow! It's like Speed 2, only with a bus instead of a boat!

He meant Metal Gear, not Metal Gear Solid. I can't remember how long it took me to beat the first MGS, but I think it was somewhere around 3-4 hours when I skip the cinematics. For MGS2, I beat the tanker chapter in about 15 minutes, and another 4 hours or so for Big Shell on Hard.

depends on if you know what you're doing or using a walkthrough.

I spent a LOT of time on MG1 using an emulator, but the second time I could finish it in under 3 hours.

MG2 is longer, but explains better where you have to go, but still it's about 5 hours minimum for the first time. I only played the subsistence version of this, don't know if there's anything different.

LMAO, my bad! I forgot to mention my times in MG1 and 2. MG1 took me something like 5-6 hours or so on the first try. MG2 was a lot harder for me, somewhere around 8 hours or so.
