Metal Gear Solid 4 to Feature 90 Minute Cut Scenes

Did you also do a double-take? Let me clarify, that is not 90 minutes of cut scenes in the entire game, that is 90 minute separate cut scenes within the game. The story of the Metal Gear series is one that cannot simply be entirely told through gameplay, so it is necessary to add longer cut scenes, but the 90 minute length is something we have yet to see in any major video game. CVG reports that PSW Magazine played through and completed MGS4 and told of the 90 minute scenes. According to CVG, PSW Magazine stated " "MGS4's story is massive. The videogame equivalent of all three Godfather movies on one disc." They also state "They [cut scenes] can be skipped, but you'll be missing out on some of the finely crafted examples of FMV footage anywhere in gaming."
