Hideo Kojima says that Rockstar's team are the best.
Wow.... That means a lot coming from Kojima... Rockstar has outdone themselves it seems with GTA V. That said, I'm looking forward to both GTA and MGS V. I will buy them both on launch, no doubt.
It doesn't matter what they say, both games will be purchased. These two games are epic.
I've always been a fan of this guy. So humble..
both are LEGENDS, two of the greatest games, i prefer gta but mgs is one of my fav games, just a little step under gta i'll never forget MGS 2 and GTA 3 days, San Andreas and MGS 3 days and MGS 4 and GTA IV days can't wait for GTA V and MGS V
I have Nothing but respect for Hideo. It takes a big man to state that someone elses product is better. He never said that MGS V wont be epic, he just thinks that GTA V will be better. Alhough it is like comparing apples and oranges, at the end of the day it shows that he is still a fan.
This 1000x. Meanwhile, Peter Molyneux is somewhere making promises about how revolutionary the next Fable will be.
Can't believe you got disagrees for that. We need more developers like Kojima that have respect for each other and not people like Molyneux that just hype their product. If your product is good, hype comes by itself.
Naughty Dog need to learn from this man
As far as open world games - GTAV wins In terms of Graphics and Story - MGSV Wins Gameplay - Tie Overall - Gamers Wins
Story i think is a tie. While gameplay GTA V wins simply because there is such a vast array of things to do and all those things look to be designed with such attention to detail.
Hey omi, "Story is a tie" Didn't you just wrote "I lost track of who's who in MGS" in an above comment? I don't mean to disrespect your opinion, but if you don't have a good grasp of the characters (and thus the story arc), how do you make a comparison? I agree that there are too many characters and that there is a convoluted relation between them going on, but that's just the beauty of it and why we love MGS games. The story of MGS is one of the best stories in the gaming history if not (arguably) the absolute best. It's just in another league while GTA had always been gameplay centric. I don't even think they are comparable in terms of storytelling.
gameplay tie? hmmmm
Maybe he's hinting at mgs is going to be open world
It is an open world similar to red dead redemption.
Nice. Wonder how much stealth will be involved or will they throw that out the window.
@billythebarbarian You really need to go look at the new trailer released at E3
Or just check out the article... they posted the trailer in it.
Watch the trailer man, the stealth is still there in all it's glory.
Watch the trailer from Microsofts e3 conference. It looks incredible.
Its open world stealth. Remember the OGRE thing Kojima was working on, Open Ground (i forget the rest). MGS5 is Project OGRE. It's open world.
MGS5 don't have to be on GTA5 level. It's on another different level. I'm getting both games but I'm more excited for MGS5 than GTA5.
agreed man, I'm more excited for MGS5 than GTA5 :)
he always making games with GTA in mind i remember in one of his interviews before MGS3 he said that he wish if their is an engine that make open world games more approachable and realistic his example was GTA:VC
I take it he means interactivity with the open world element. GTA5 will have more stuff to do than MGSV. There are more cars and things to play with in GTA5. I'm basing this assumption off of the previous games I played. Gameplay wise though, MGSV seems to be more of an evolutionary step than GTA5. GTA5 just looks like more of the same, but prettier. whereas MGSV's open world element adds new things to do for that franchise. Driving stuff in an open world is new for MGS5 as well as dynamic sneaking around. Which one will be better? We have to play both to find out.
Both are day one , that's all it matter...
it's day -7 to me, games get released early in the middle east the last of us released june 2nd here
Yes but their going to abuse the price especially with GTA, remember GTA IV?
I appreciate his honesty in this age of deceptive advertisement, but I'd still pick MGS over GTA every time.
id pick metal gear solid over gta too. .......actually id pick any game over gta.
truly doubt you being a true gamer, gta is one of the few games in the industry that shows what gaming is all about
@ape007: its the same effing game as the last one. every time the same stupid missions. follow this guy in a car, do a drive by to this guy. im more of a gamer than you to effing see that with the same wannabe gangster plot everytime so if thats what you think gaming is all about your a sucker. i stop playing gta after gta 3.
No matter how good GTA V will be experiences like the one I get from every MGS game I'll never find anywhere else, MGS is the only game series that keep the standards at the TOP for more than 15 years now & keep deliver with every new sequel/prequel/spinoff constantly, it never disappoint & that's why more than 6 millions fans follow the series & buy every new MGS game they can find, Hideo have nothing to fear he is a genius & he have our trust & support in anything he decide to do :)
gta can give a true gameplay/substance feel that make mgs feel shallow, 2 different games "MGS is the only game series that keep the standards at the TOP for more than 15 years now & keep deliver with every new sequel/prequel/spinoff constantly, it never disappoint" umm, what about mario, zelda and metroid? nothing against mgs, it's legendary but there are others too
All those you listed have either milked their franchises dry or have been in hiatus for way to long, hes right MGS is always top notch and Konami Pace themselves brilliantly with the series, its not the only one but certainly top 3.
And with every MGS game, the gameplay changes. MGS3 to MGS4 is an Example, and to a lesser extent, MGS4 to Peacewalker. They just keep getting better and better, and they've never messed up.
GTAV needs to be on next gen systems.. MGSV looks incredible and I can't wait to play that on PS4.
Well, you don't say?
i'll take MGS over GTA, but that's just my feelings
Big difference being - GTA V will be a game to have fun in. Do the story, then you run over pedestrians and blow up cop cars. MGS 5 will have a convoluted story and cutscenes that will put some of Peter Jacksons film running times to shame. You'll play for the story and those special moments. Will the open world of MGS 5 be full of stuff to do? In the trailer he just rode on a horse and they had to fast forward because nothing was happening. It looked impressive, for sure but I doubt it'll have the amount of 'time sink' activities that we've seen in other games. We shall see though.
Dont forget the mutliplayer and the RPG elements that are being implemented in to GTA V that will no doubt add days of gameplay.
Oh of course. My point being is GTA has much more to do than just the story side of it and you often play it for humor and to kill your friends online etc. It's something you'll pop in a few months down the line to have a killing spree and maybe jump online MGS has a long, long story behind it or characters we know. I can imagine, much like MGS4, play the story through 2, maybe 3 times and then having my fill of it. I know there will be fans that have played through the games probably 150+ times and found all the easter eggs or whatever but, personally, GTA always keeps me coming back to have a 'quick blast'
I find that when most people say a story is convoluted, they really mean they don't have the attention span to follow it all.
Way to sound really pretentious. Because calling the MGS story convoluted and contrived, it's quite clearly a case of "You don't get it!" am I right?
if i had both game.. i wouldnt even touch GTA5 till i finish MGSv at least two times... then i would play the hell outta rockstars game...
I know that Kojima has a lot of respect for other devs in the industry, but what the hell has been up with him lately?
What do you mean? Honest question, haven't been following up with all the news lately. Thanks in advance.
He's honest and realistic, I like that. Both games will be great but I agree with Kojima saying that R* North are pretty outstanding.
I never got into the Metal Gear Solid series. I bought Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots, but I hated the gameplay, not my style. And artistically the visuals are not appealing.
are you kidding me did you ever play any of the other mgs games if not go play them some of the best games ever! and "visuals are not appealing" please mgs games have had some of the best graphics of there time all the way back on ps1 ps3 and on ps3 mgs4 has some really good graphics and as for the gameplay of mgs4 yeah it got away from all the stealth but was still a GREAT GAME.
Way to throw your studio under the bus! I'm sure that not what they would want to hear while they are developing MGS5.
This is a japanese dev with a lot of respect for other studios
Humility, i respect that.
I can tell you all one thing, its great to be a gamer.
ok now that I have read that article I will say this mgs and gta games is the two series that have keep me a gamer since ps1 I have deep respect for both. to me nether are better than the other. both have always been two different type of games if mgs5 goes back to stealth ways it will be epic. and gta5 yes I will say it looks to have more freedom but sometimes giving all that freedom at the very begging of a game could also ruin it. with that said gta will hold me off till next gen cant wait.
Very obvious, Rockstar has set the bar for open world, always has. As soon as they announced mgs5 to be open world, I said no way it will even come close to what GTA5 open world is. Rockstar doesn't use the words "open world" just for hype. I respect Kojima but I think he went out of his element for mgs5, hope I eat my own words but we will see.
Mr. Kojima s a well respected guy, he earned my respect..
Jeez, is this whole page filled with rockstar fans? Everything that demotes gta 5 is completely bashed with "Disagrees" lol
not if the GTAV goes the GTAIV way...GTAIV was utterly boring game. but Kojima is just too honest and humble.
mgs has nothing on gta sorry man
we need more developers like kojima and less like cliffy b
Also, less like the arrogant David Jaffe.
He's just being humble, but I respect that. MGSV will be utterly amazing.
If it was the first MGS i would have disagreed with him. But expect for MGS3 Kojima hasnt made a game close to the brilliance of the first MGS. And thats been a while now
How can people lose track on the MGS saga? A bunch of tards here. Go download the MGS database from PSN if you can't keep up with the story.
I love kojima's honesty. He shouldn't worry though .
I want more Z.O.E!!!!
Kojima, that is a sad excuse for not putting all you can into a game! Just laziness....if I was a boss, and I had a team of people like GTA, I would make the MGS team learn from the GTA team to be as good.....sorry to say that Kojima wimped out on this one!
He's not even close to done with the game, what are you talking about? He just stated he doesn't think it's gonna reach its level. This is just like he thought after seeing The Division he has to try harder. He's giving credit where it's due
No excuses Kojima, you suck!
kojima should keep doing his thing in terms of gameplay because he knows what hes doing, but he should SERIOUSLY take a note from western videogames on how to write and tell a story. Good grief MGS4 was just offensive at how awful that story was told and just how convoluted it was
