virtually impossible: how long did it take you?

i haven't attempted this yet, but i remember back in the MGS2:S days i would rage hard trying to complete the missions.

so, to whoever has done this, how long did it take you? and how would you rate the stress factor in getting it? easier or harder than great dane?

I think playing on extreme is a bit easier. I've got four missions left and have clocked just under 32 hours.

I did on PS3 and I think it was around 20-25 hours without a guide. Already did stuff on PS2 years ago. I am planning to do it on X360 soon and I suppose it will take me much less time.

The only thing difficult about the dog tags are not the boss fights or dog tags themselves, but the long tengu fights. I prefer the legit and difficult way without using the cooling spray to avoid fighting them.

Can you use the unlockables by collecting dog tags in the VR? Anyway I'm not done yet, but I'm like 15 hours in and about 50% done.

No, you can not. They are speaking of playing extreme when inside the metal gear.

Finished Virtually Impossible last night. Took about 35 hours.

I expect to start tomorrow on the VR Missions, I'm going to close out today on the Great Dane achievement with Extreme Mode, do the final Snake Tale right after that (I've been doing a Snake Tale after every completion of the Plant Chapter on each difficulty mode) and move on to VR. I intend to make Snake Beater my final MGS2 achievement and Snake Eater my first MGS3 one =)

I believe my final time was around 50 hours, most of it spent on sniping Variety Missions. Snake 4 and MGS1 Snake 1, to be precise. The rest was fairly easy.
I never want to do those again.

34 hours, 31 minutes and 9 seconds. Why did it take so long? MGS1 Snake Variety 1...probably poured 4-5 hours into losing my sanity on that one before I finally got it. Then the rest of MGS1 Snake pissed me the fuck off...his outfit is so awesome but he himself SUCKS!

Also I often left the game running in the background, so I don't doubt 5 more of those hours is because of that. I might be in the 20 range myself if not for that crap.

Hi there, is there anybody else working on VRs?

Let's discuss and encourage each other.
I was around 40% and working through milkin (I skipped Raiden). I'm looking forward to unlock mgs1 snake ASAP to experience the mgs1 sniping and will decide later if I have to give up or not lol.

In order to unlock snake mgs1, we don't need to do Raiden, right?

Uhm, I'm gonna finish all of these before start MGS2.

I'm stuck'd in the Snake VR mission where we need to protect Meryl from the 26 enemies with the PSG1/T. Any tips to complete it?

If you having a hard time for this one, try it from the platform beneath you, simply drop down. Focus your aim on the stairs and kill as many as you can. When the timer hits 2:00 keep your eyes on Meryl.

I did all of them from this position with the PSG-1, quite easier if you adjust the crosshairs so that you can get headshots.

Oh and btw, look forward to VR Snake (MGS1) Variety 1 if you already hate this one hehe.

I just unlocked MGS1 Snake at 27 hours. I look forward to countless hours of frustration trying to complete his missions.

Just finished today, at 39 and a half hours.

For the sniping levels, it's probably advisable to use the PSG1 over the PSG1-T, for the simple fact that it's a guaranteed kill, though it can take a few hits if you don't hit vital areas. The tranquiliser won't stagger them, and it can be very hard to keep track of which guards you've tagged. It won't give you a great score, but you will eventually pass the mission. I found that after killing about 15 enemies as MGS1 Snake, I was beginning to have to watch the box, at which point I went superhuman and started nailing headshots everywhere.

38hrs, but come on, the earlier characters were a cake walk. I know at least 10hrs were idle. didn't know your time continued to count in the menues. The rest half was mgs1 snake lol..

Surprisingly i got more 1st scores in MGS1 Snake than I think all the others lol. 40 1st places out of 48 missions (excluding weapons).

Is that 360?
Btw Just started it Yesterday finished today at 31hours was pretty disappointed. Finished the MGS1 variety on my first try. Hardest thing for me was probably finding the bombs I am terrible at that.

Finally finished it last night clocking in at 29hrs 30min exactly. I can't believe it took that long for one single achievement. I feel like it should've been worth like 100 points at least, or 150. 80pts doesn't do justice for how much effort it took. Hardest ones for me was protecting Meryl (even more than the box oddly enough), the Pliskin grenade missions, and MGS1 Sneaking missions. Glad I can move on to MGS3 finally.
