Should I cancel my Ground Zeroes preorder

Anyone on these forums long enough should know how much of an MGS nut I am, and have known that I've been very excited about Ground Zeroes, but with the recent news I've been having second thoughts.

I have about $5 left to pay for this game, but in recent light of the game's length, I'm not sure if I want to pay $30 for it. I've been a huge fan of this series but this recent thing with splitting GZ and TPP have pretty much left me conflicted in that I want them, but this is a practice I don't want to support.

can you guys help me out here

I'd say cancel it if you're inflicted. Sounds to me like you've already made that choice anyway and came to us to help validate that decision.

Well yes, good choice.

Pick it up later when it's cheaper if it's as short as it seems then the price will drop rapidly.

If you feel like it's a waste of money then go ahead. Although if you're a fan you might enjoy it regardless of the length maybe.

Cancel it. Unless there are some cool extra items from the GameStop's offers, then go ahead and spend $30.

I've been a huge MGS fan myself, but their Konami's marketing to get more $ earlier from upcoming one short game MGSV GZ is pathetic.

I doubt Konami's marketing department had a say on game length. That was probably Kojima's call.

How long is it exactly? The first game is short as sin, and it's still great.

According to Gameinformer, the main story can be beaten in less than 2 hours in their first playthrough

Like Gareth said, it sounds like you just want validation on canceling your order. For me, I wouldn't. Of course, I'm a Big Boss fangirl so like it doesn't bother me the game is only 2 hours long. If you're not longer willing to make the investment, cancel it.

Well I think if you plan on just doing the story once and never play it again, just skip it and watch a LP. What recent thing happened? I'm pretty sure the two games were designed to be separate from the very beginning

I'm getting it since it's only $30 and it's MGS so it'll be totally replayable multiple times. Plus there are side missions too.
