I was right at the 15 hour mark when I beat it on medium, but I rarely ran, explored every place I could, and paused the game several times to get up for food.  Going through it in 8 hours sounds like bullshit (easy mode maybe), and if you did, you missed any kind of suspense or ambiance the game offers just to plow through it.  I'd say if you liked the play and length of RE4, but want a dark sci-fi theme, this game is it.

CoD4 is short, but it was filled with action, and the game is far more successful for its MP anyway.

It's been known for some time that MG isn't as popular a franchise as it appears.  From day one it alienated a lot of players with it's very distinct gameplay.  It sells very well and it's arguably the only franchise left that Konami gives a damn about anymore, but it's always had an over-inflated reputation when money left pockets.

MGS4 is a good game, but it's proven that it didn't have the gravitas to sell the number of PS3s many thought it did, and the number of PS3 owners that ignored it as well only cemented that fact.

It reminds me of Metroid Prime 3, a great game that came and went, with crappy sales and the only reason being that the audience that wanted it wasn't the huge Wii demographic buying mini games.  Just like most PS3s are BD players instead of game consoles.  The fans bought it - that is - the fans with PS3s bought it, the rest looked on waiting for the next Blu Ray movie to drop.
