Ground Zeroes Speed Run: 10 Minutes
This probably isn't the headline Konami wanted to see.
The most controversial element of the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been its length. An early Game Informer report said you could finish the prologue in under two hours.
Since then, we've seen varying time estimates from different sources, but the latest won't make gamers feel any better: Eurogamer has a video up that shows a 10-minute speed-run. Yep, 10 minutes. They "finished" the game in that ridiculously short span of time.
Of course, it should be noted that the player knew exactly where to go and what to do, and he skipped all the cut-scenes and side missions. Obviously, Ground Zeroes will take you longer than 10 minutes. But the mere fact that it can be completed in less than a quarter of an hour won't go over well with the gaming community.
During the initial backlash, Konami dropped the price of the physical copies of the PS4 and Xbox One versions by $10 each. Hasn't stemmed the negative tide, though.
