      I hope he gives everyone a time limit. Each game trailer always goes on about twice as long as it should

        that's what he said about the game awards. was only 15 minutes shorter, if that. I can't recall but it wasn't really. Could be that he was able to cram more into the same time, but there was talk of it being shorter than 2021 december awards

        just going by number of announcers 43, times 2 minutes for intro, another 2 min for trailer runtime, results in 172 minutes. 2 hours 52 min.
