Didn't Kojima say MGS4 was his last one too?

Wedge191185d ago

It's kinda like 'Final Fantasy'....

gaffyh1185d ago

Well not really. Final Fantasy was called Final Fantasy because the company released it as their last game ever. But, it did so well, that the company survived and continued making games under that name.

With MGS, it's pretty clear that Kojima wants to work on other projects, but it seems like one of two things is happening:

1. He either passes the game over to another director, and when he sees what that person comes up with, he hates it and realizes he has to take over the game.
2. Konami knows that they need his name attached to the game in order for it to sell.

Obviously I'm just guessing, it could be a little of both, but the situation is definitely nothing like the FF situation.

Wedge191185d ago

@gaffyh I am well aware of the FF situation. I was being facetious, sarcastic and humorous, and did state it's KINDA like FF, which it KINDA is. Yes it's not an exact match up, but in general terms of it being the last one, but probably not (Also referencing the numerous FF XIII sequels.....).

Peppino71185d ago

MGS4 was a masterpiece well worth making his final game. If he replicates that experience or improves it, then we all win.

doctorstrange1185d ago

I think he's been saying that since the first game.

Codeman4201185d ago

yea he said it back in MGS2 trying to get Raiden to be the main character but the fan outcry changed it

Mounce1185d ago

8-12 years later and we're on MGS8

"T-the last game...please, fans, stop wanting more! I want this to be the last!"

... *Hideo Kojima's Grave* - "Here lies Gaming Mastermind behind Metal Gear Solid. The man that wanted to do more than just MGS but never could outside of ZoE because the fans just kept wanted more"

Root1185d ago

If it is then why the hell is David not voicing Snake then...if its hi last let him voice Snake.

George Sears1185d ago

@OP

Kojima has been saying this since MGS2.

Tdmd1185d ago

Also MGS2. Apparently, every MGS will be his last one, except that, uh, it isn't (thankfully!).

dasbeer881185d ago

I do believe fans threatened Kojima with dire consequences if he stopped creating the MGS series.

Well he has to retire from that franchise at somepoint but the psycho fans will likely send death threats at him for stupid reasons

WUTCHUGUNNADO1185d ago

He wants it to be... doesn't mean it will. Dudes way too young to retire from his No.1 franchise.

Summons751185d ago

Yupp that's true. I'm sure he says to himself a lot that this will be the last then Konami drops by with a bag of money saying make more and so a new game is born. It's at least respectable that he still treats all his games with care and makes them quality titles. Just look at metal gear rising, he asked different devs to do it because he realized his team couldn't. No one in any other developer would do that. And I'm convicted that without Kojima productions Konami wouldn't last long anymore. Either way love metal gear and I'll buy this even though I'm saddened by no hayter

Zechs341185d ago

"Kojima, now celebrating his 74th birthday, claims, being 100% honest this time, that Metal Gear RE:Solid IX is definitely his last Metal Gear game."

"In other news relating to the previous story, no release date in sight for the highly anticipated Zone of the Enders 3, despite being announced for the 7th generation of consoles."

All jokes aside, I cannot wait for this to come out!

Unicron1185d ago

Konami should give ZOE to Platinum. They'd do a kickass job with it.
