How a game plays is, of course, a crucial aspect of any experience, but quite often (and with increasing frequency these days), the story can be just as crucial- even more so, some might argue. There’s no single way to tell a story in a game, but more often than not, games end up employing the most direct measure- and that means cutscenes. Often, that means a lot of cutscenes. Here, we’re going to take a look at a few games that had more than their fair share of them.

METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS

As always, we’re going to kick things off with the obvious choice- because you all knew this game was going to be in here. Metal Gear Solid 4 has been notorious for its many (and long) cutscenes for as long as it’s been around. The total length of cutscenes in the game is over eight hours, which is longer than entire games can often be, and quite a few of those are ridiculously long. One particular infamous sequence stretches on for over 70 minutes- that’s longer than a hockey game.
