Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been criticized profusely for its length, and quite a few media outlets are scrambling to post videos of just how fast they can beat the game. Producer Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi decided to fire back today on Twitter, mentioning that some talk without even having tried the game’s missions.

Don’t forget this game have a lot of replay value. Some people hasn’t even try all missions and said too short. Enjoy!

Imaizumi-san also mentioned that if you can complete all the missions in under two hours the first time you play the game, then you should probably work at Kojima Productions.

If you can beat all the missions under 2HRS your first time playing MGSV:GZ, we would love for you to work for us!

While I still haven’t played the game, so it’s hard for me to judge, it’s hard not to notice that the discourse on duration is becoming a little colored by hyperbole, often replacing the question that should come first: “is it fun?”
