Is the watch really that beautiful and golden?

Seriously though, I missed out- gimmie a hug. Then again, I knew I'd miss out because I chose to savor the game. Spent like an hour alone just bowling.

i was surprised i got it tbh, i also didnt think the game was that hard to complete, ive only have a xbox a few weeks, and really enjoyed GTA IV, but was surprised when i had completed it in just over 26 hours...also had time to do some other achievements aswell, but i did escape out of the cutscenes as i am to impatient to watch them lol...

21-22 hours for me, and that was with some mucking about earlier on playing mini games.

when you put your mind to it and skip journeys you can rinse through it quick.

i even made the stupid decision at the end resulting in an extra four missions.

edit: at first i thought i'd get it on my second playthrough but then i thought about it and decided i may as well get as many points as possible instead and the chances of me playing through it again are very low

theres just too many new games coming out all the time to waste 20 hours or so replaying a game.

hehe, I have finished 45% of the game and have already played over 35 hours. Don't wanna rush the game the first time I play it, so it looks like there will be a second play only to do this achievement.

yea I'm currently at 27 hours and 30 mins and I'm doing the special someone mission. Not gonna rush my last 2 1/2 hours just to get the achievement. I could and get it easily and I most probably will but if anything I might just need a hug when I'm done.

Got the achievement on my first playthrough :P

I wasn't particularly bothered about it at first, but then completely blitzed the last 20 missions giving me a time of 29 hours 30 minutes. It was a close call, but at least i dont have to rush through it agiain skipping cut scenes etc, didnt skip a single one and still got the time ^_^

Go me!!

You probably can, but you're going to have to miss out on cutscenes and reload when failing missions. So I wouldn't bother, only because it would take too much away from the gaming experience. Don't you dare not enjoy GTA 4 to the fullest!

29:37:00 I even got about 17 other achievements as well. I skipped the cutscenes because I too am impatient. I just wanted to play and what an amazing finish. I like the whole Mass Effect choice your own ending

it's not that people have problems with it - it's that they chose to do other things rather than rush from the off.

I missed it by 2hours i wasnt a happy bunny but at the same time i had a blast messing around with bits and bobs. I shall be replaying it at least another 2 times, 1 to get the achievement and another to fully lap up the storyline

why would you want to 100% it on your third try and not play one of the previous two game saves?

I've got about 54 missions done and I'm like 12 hours into it. I've been messing around and taking Brucie drinking a lot lately as well. Gonna work on my last two friends while doing story missions.

Chojin, who's the babe in your avatar??

I didnt even look at the achievements when I first got the game. I just messed around for a while as I'm sure many people did then saw this achievement and went for it. Clocked in at 29:55:18. Crazy close.

just because you speed-run it doesn't mean you can't get continue with that game and 100% it...

rather than start all over...

that'd give you a 'fun' playthrough and one for speed? no?

I got it on 27 hours and 30 minuetes or so. I was also maucking around doing a fair bit of side missions etc so I think that it is possible to get it waaay less than that. Overall I thought this was a pretty easy achievement to get.

question...

Does anyone have a list of missions that compose up the main story? I don't want to get sidetracked doing side missions if I can avoid it. How many missions are storyline? What are the mission names?

Currently I'm 14 missions in at 2h play time. I'd like to think I'm on track, but who knows.
