An open letter to Hideo Kojima

The Void:

Dear Mr. Kojima,

I think it’s pretty obvious that you are definitely going to read this open letter. And I think it’s even more obvious that, after reading it, the mad ramblings of a crazed Metal Gear fan who isn’t particularly smart will completely change your mind and alter the future of your productions. With this in mind, please forgive me if I come off as a bit harsh, as I love everything you’ve ever touched. (3DS, GameCube, Metal Gear Series, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Well written, but I still think a prequel involving The Boss, Big Boss and the children would be an amazing idea and I think that MGS5 will feature multiple timelines that will have The Boss & Cobras in one act, Big Boss in another and the Snakes in the final act. Showing what was going on with Liquid and Solidus(and Raiden) while Big Boss and Solid Snake were tearing each other apart and of course it would be nice to give us more details about Zero and Ocelot and show how The Patriots evolved and the war that occurred between Big Boss and Zero and how The Patriots(with Master Miller) shaped our hero Solid Snake to fight and face his own flesh and blood father. These plot holes are very interesting to cover in Metal Gear Solid 5 and I think they will answer lots of questions that Metal Gear fans wanted clarified. Soon, we will witness the premier trailer/teaser for MGS5(July) and hopefully things should get clearer about the direction Kojima-san will be taking.

One important note that should not be missed, never underestimate the creative mind Hideo Kojima has because this man managed to keep this series kicking for 25 years and every entry in the franchise was simply mind blowing. Expect the unexpected with Kojima and the future of the Metal Gear franchise will always be bright under Kojima's vision.

Always be faithful.

I just wish he actually WANTED to continue Metal Gear Solid... Though people keep wanting him to make more. Honestly, I think MGS 5 is going to curse him either way. On one hand, if he does something involving Solid Snake again, people will be mad his story didn't end on MGS4. On the other hand, if he doesn't have Solid Snake in it, people will be mad that he's not in it.

He's kinda backed into a wall here, and I'm not sure how he'll manage to get out. But I certainly won't underestimate him. MGS4 was the reason I bought a PS3 and one of the only collector's editions I've ever bought. I know MGS5 will be amazing in every way, and I can't wait to see it, no matter what he decides to do with the series.

I like MGS but it's time for people to stop harrasing him about making another game. I just wish he would put his foot down and say enough is enough, i mean if he's happy making MGS, then he should continue doing it but he's forced to do it basically. Let Kojima work on new IP

Awesome! Way to start a letter telling the reader you are about to insult them!

"as I love everything you’ve ever touched." that's a disturbing notion, are you sure about that?

but seriously, not bad.

Hideo kojima is no david cage.
In the 80's, 90's hideo pushed story's in gaming but now he hasnt made anything original in over 10 years.
I look to david cage and quantic dream now to provide original risky narrative games.

I mean MGS5? not sure i can respect kojima anymore.. he's sold out.

There's still a lot of options for great new games in the series. Stopping it would be completely unnecessary.
