Remember the good old days when you could even enjoy shareware versions of games for days at a row because they were packed with gameplay? It seems those days are long behind us, an increasing number of games are getting very short main missions and in the case of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes it's getting pretty absurd.
Kotaku writes the prequel to Metal Gear Solid V has a main campaign that can be finished in under 2 hours!
"Judged just by the core story mission, Ground Zeroes is short," Game Informer writes in the cover story (only available in the magazine, not online). "We completed it in just less than two hours."1
Ground Zeroes is out on March 18 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. It's designed as a prologue to MGSV—because Hideo Kojima wanted to give people something to play while they wait for the next entry in his stealth-action series—but it isn't cheap: the last-gen version is $20 digital and $30 physical; the current-gen version is $30 digital and $40 physical.
