Question regarding the 30 hour cheevo

does the 30 hour cheevo only count the minutes that your doing the story missions or from the moment you enter the game, sounds strange to be force to play the game quickly for an cheevo!

I'd assume it's the time between starting the first mission and the the last mission, so all the stuff between that is like a race.

Just play the game at your own pace, they way you like it.
Then, a few weeks or months from now, start a new game and rush it for the achievement.

This'll make it easier to get too, as by then, you'll know the city and the missions. Can't imagine you'd get it on the first try anyway, without knowing the city and the missions. You'd get lost all the time and keep having to retry missions.

Of course it's not for first time players, it's for the people who have finished the games more than once, the speedrunners, etc, who do it after they've taken their time with the game and got to know the best cars/routes/weapons to use in missions.
