*spoilers* does playing MGS1 tie into playtime?

 You know the flashback at the start of act 3. I was wondering if it affects playtime.

I assumed it does, it only takes like 10 seconds to complete. But alerts/continues don't count though.

I wasn't sure either, so I assumed it counted towards everything (time, rations, alerts, etc). I suggest you do the same, or test it for the rest of us.

I can confirm that it DOESN'T add to playtime.
I looked in the strategy guide the other day and it was one of the things that doesn't go to your playtime.
It was that and loading and installing. Those 3 things don't add to playtime.
