I kinda feel bad for Kojima

According to him he wanted to move away from the series ages ago, but keeps coming back because every time someone else tries to make a Metal Gear Solid game they get it wrong.

That and Konami bankrolled a development studio solely for Kojima projects.

I've heard what Kojima has said, but I don't think he completely wants to let the series go. He's one of the most respected developers, he must be able to get funding for other projects if he wanted to. I think part of him is attached to the series and another part of him doesn't want to give the MGS series off to someone else unless he's sure they can live up to standard he has set. There is part of him that wants to do other stuff of course though.

I stopped believing in what Kojima says a decade ago.

If Konami is what pays the bills and puts food on the table for Kojima then he sure as hell better keep making Metal Gear games whether he wants to or not.


Then he needs to stop acting like he's moving away from MGS. If he don't have enough confidence in himself to believe he can make it without MG, then stop the nonsense...

Why is a below average developer, who hasn't created ONE acclaimed game from the ground up, allowed to repeatedly screw up the biggest name in gaming????

It's mostly the fans faults. Kojima tried to move away from MGS4 but he received so many death threats, and no matter what you are or where you are you should never take a single death threat as a joke. He stuck with MGS once again. I guess he might kinda enjoy it.


You can tell he's trying to move away though. The way Metal Gear Peace Walker played it could have been a whole new game.

Also Kojima reported that the next Metal Gear game will have many ideas from different new IP's he wants to work on. (If Phantom Pain is a sign of anything) that might have been one of the new IP's he wanted to do jut with Metal Gear skin coated over it.

Kojima is God so he can do whatever he wants. Konami is not a factor.
