    This is a fairly easy achievement, and have kinda multiple ways what to do.

    First off if you think you are a REALLY slow player, then skip all cinematics, use taxi and everytime you fail a mission reload save. Personally i got my story through in 12 hours with this method and i totally recommend watching the story cinematics so you can easily let that off.

    But yeah modify those as you like, most of you should do enough by just reloading after fails and using taxi, no needing of cinematic skipping.

    And before you panic after finishing the story...This achievement DOES NOT come after the "You won" one, you get this one after the credits, and it dosent matter if you skip em.

    Brett Evans15Hey is that right for just skip the whole cutscenes? Not the whole story or no?! So, I gonna do is to get two other achievements for me is One Man Army and It’ll Cost Ya. And then I’m ready to play whole story missions mode to skip the whole cutscenes for less than 30 hours to get Liberty City Minute Achievement after I saw the ending credits for 20 minutes. Not too much. I hope this works or not for me I guess. Please let me know it. Thanks!

    It's very easy to get this achievement in the first playthrough. The only thing to do is to reload save after saving. And by the way there's 94 missions in the game and you have 30 hours to complete them so you do three or four in one hour and all will be fine. At a moment I had only 30 missions done at 15 hours of the game, then I really started the quests and I finished the game within 25 hours without skipping any cutscenes (exept after failing the mission) or taking any taxi.

    People talk about loading up saves and skipping cutscenes. Would make sense if the achievement was for 15 or 20 hours. But 30 hours is a lot of time. Watch cutscenes, heck even do side missions; The key is to use taxis wherever you can. I got a couple of side missions done, still managed to get the achievement. Don't let getting this achievement ruin your GTA 4 experience.
