Metal Gear Solid has always been a series known for long cutscenes and elongated storytelling, but Metal Gear Solid 4 seriously took it to another level. The game constantly brings the action to a halt with long exposition scenes, introducing new characters, and paying homage to the series.

At one point, Metal Gear Solid 4 also held two different Guinness World Records for the length of its cutscenes; the longest cutscene at 27 minutes and the longest sequence of cutscenes at 71 minutes.

That’s right, MGS 4 basically has a whole damn movie at the end of the game that you’ll need to sit through. Now don’t get us wrong, MGS 4 is great and the story is a fantastic end to the saga of Solid Snake, with many of the gorgeous cutscenes supporting this.

However, anyone and everyone that beat MGS 4 can think back to sitting through that ending movie and wondering when it’ll end, so you can get on with the rest of your day.
