Hideo kojima stated this game is too long for gamers to finish...

Nice marketing strategy.

@chibi_cute: I thought it was 1 mission that takes like 5 hours to do.

@chibi_cute: I don't know where you're getting your information, but you're very wrong. The controversy surrounding the game has to do with its main campaign being completed in 2 hours by Gameinformer. No one has ever claimed otherwise, and it even led Konami to knock down the price of new-gen physical copies by $10. The quote you're talking about is Kojima referencing MGS V: The Phantom Pain (Ground Zeroes is basically a demo/prologue to the main MGS V game), which will be 100-200x larger.

@chibi_cute: No prob. I was confused for about a year after their initial announcement. It took them awhile to clear it up. Phantom Pain is an open world game, and Kojima's worried it's too long for players to finish.

Anyways, IGN gave Ground Zeroes an 8, so not bad at all. The lack of a Platinum trophy on PS4 is incredibly annoying though. Apparently Sony only allows them for full-price games. :/

The controls and mechanics really threw me off at first, it wasn't like the classic games or the current MGS4/Peace Walker. However once I got used to things, it became one of the most thrilling stealth experiences I've ever had.

I'm REALLY taking my time with it, I've spent hours just wandering around the base. Still haven't beaten it yet.

Ha ha, I'm not used to the controls either. 0.0 I accidentally keep crouching and etc.

Same here! I've gotten one of the patches but, plan to do everything.

What's your PSN by the way?

Really? You're the exact opposite of me as a gamer. I keep my games like I keep my comics. It's a collection and I like having a large library.

@wolverine08: @pr0metheus: @nick_hero22:

Literally the best gaming experience I've had and I got it for 20 dollars. IMO this game is worth the money and is much much better than games I've paid 65 dollars for in the past. I've never played a metal gear game before this but I will finish the series before the phantom pain is released. Obviously it's visually stunning but the story is incredibly impactful and gut wrenching ;), and the characters are so vivid and alive and....bravo Hideo Kojima is all I have to say. In a game I beat in about 2hours and have now totally mastered I still play through and find new things about it. This is what games should be. Simply put: this game is like a nice meal.

exactly. I thoroughly enjoy this game because of the gameplay and the replay-ability of it. you can do that mission in any number of different and creative ways and their are side missions you unlock that are, imo, far more challenging than the main mission not to mention side quests like the xof patches
