Oddly enough, I'm finished 80 missions with 22hours15minutes or so. Odd that it is that close, lol.

I've been dickin' around with roman and brucie, and I slammed Michelle a few times. The missions thus far have been pretty straightforward though, and from what I read before, for the bare minimum you should be doing 3 missions a gameplay hour or something close.

33 Missions in the game done and I'm 11 hours in. I'm thinking I can still get it, but I'm not sure. I just got the Playboy X missions and have 2 missions left with Elizabeth and Manny.

Would have been 2 or so hours less, but I was messing around with Brucie and some other achievements.

I'm wondering is there a way to skip missions and make it easier? Like I know that *spoilers* with Derrick and Francis you have an option to do something to one of the other (tryin not to spoil anything) and if you choose one option you get 2 extra missions. Which means going the other way would save you time. And I'm wondering *another possible spoiler* if you let Packie die in the Elizabeta mission, do you get to skip all his missions or what?

I'm currently in the mission "Catch the Wave". I've played about 17 hours. Can I still make it? I'm asking this because I've no idea how many missions are left.

You definitely have enough time. I was doing that mission yesterday with 8 hours left and I completed the story at hour 26, so you're all good.

so yea i beat it last night with a total time of 26hrs and 57min... i got to like 20 hours with 50 missions completed and i freaked out that i couldnt finish in 10 hrs so i went on a spree of skipping cut scenes, reloading missions when i failed, and reading the guide in detail before each mission so i could know what to expect, also i used a cab everywhere i went and skipped those scenes... had like 64% completed in the end... not too bad... whew... now i can relax and play GTA the way it was meant to be played... care free relaxin with a rocket launcher in my hand

29 hours 23 minutes. I took the last two missions extra slow so I wouldn't screw up. That's one thing I love about this game: no timed story missions. I was getting pissed watching the final cinematic, not quite sure about where I was time-wise and not wanting it to put me over. I hope I didn't miss anything by skipping the credits. The achievement doesn't unlock until after they roll.

Not too shabby if I say so myself. If you're tweaked about finishing under 30 hours .. bear in mind that the missions are only about 60% .. and it's pretty easy to come in under the radar. I even did a lot of extra stuff (as evidenced by %) ..

I'm at 36% (finished +/- 50 missons) right now and 16 hours of playtime? Already completed Three Leaf Clover. Enough time left to make it? I think it should be very well possible..

I beat the story in about 19 hours watching all cutscenes. Grabbing a Taxi everywhere is a must.

I just beat the game a couple of minutes ago.My total time was 28 hours with 16 minutes.I didn't skip the cut scenes but I did reload my saves whenever I would get killed or failed a mission.I also started using the taxi cabs around 20 hours into the game.

Nah, the last I don't know, 10 missions took me about 2 hours... but that's including the 20 minute credits. Beat the game in 24-25 hours. Missions are all easy... except if you choose money...

*SPOILER* Chasing Dimitri after he killed Peg was a bastard... fucking rockets.*END SPOILER*

Revenge is much easier if you want to make time... and the ending is alot ummm not as sad.

They make half of the game. Really good story.

If it's just a matter of seconds, couldn't you reload your last save (which is hopefully at the last mission or so and try to do it a bit quicker?
