Hideo Kojima clarifies his 'sexy' approach to Metal Gear Solid 5's characters

Polygon - Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima garnered some (perhaps unwanted) attention earlier this week for a handful of tweets he made about the character design for his upcoming games, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.

He can explain all he wants, by this whole thing still just seems really odd to me.

Also, Hideo is making himself look like a 14 year old female "attention whore" who wears next to nothing in order to attract the attention of boys.

the only thing we have seen from Quiet is her getting tortured and standing out in the desert. During torture, women are usually stripped of their clothes for an embarrassment factor,maybe this could be it? then she escapes and obviously cant find clothes out in the Afghanistan desert.

The fact is, you, nor anybody else knows the whole I dont understand why people are bitchin over something so trivial and pointless. Why didnt people complain about the speedo scene with Kaz in Peace Walker...or the fact that you can even go on a date with him in that situation in the first place. Its just a bunch of dumb white knights hoping to get some e-poon

^this is exactly what I thought might be the case, although I did laugh when I saw her in the MS E3 trailer (doesn't show torturing I don't think) what she was wearing was just so rediculous. However women aren't the only characters sexualised in MGS plenty of the men have been at one point or another...

ThanatosDMC1474d ago

No one remembers the all female enemy soldiers in MGS4 apparently and the stuff that happens when you frisk them down for supplies. Oh well, must be people who's never played the series as a whole.

Kojima should just tell 'em "Go *uck yourselves."

dasbeer881474d ago

Great now Kojima is either going to generalize Quiet into wearing more clothes or end up being a controversial person all thanks to people like you.
It's like how Christmas has been generalized into "Happy Holidays" all thanks to religious morons who can't keep their own beliefs to themselves.

GusHasGas1474d ago

Or he'll do nothing about the situation and everyone will eventually forget about the whole thing..,

CalamityCB1474d ago

Why would any character in that situation where clothes like that?

Salooh1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

I only see the weather as an excuse. But other then that it doesn't make sense. However, it's not my right to complain since i'm not the one who's making it , i have a different believes so i can't change what they believe is alright , if i can't handle it i won't buy it :) .

And just like what others says , it's not a new thing from kojima.

JunioRS1011474d ago

Anybody who is confused by this approach is unfamiliar with the MGS franchise. Hideo Kojima has always put a half naked female somewhere in the game.

It's annoying that he has to explain himself like he hasn't done this with every other MGS so far...

Baka-akaB1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

I think he should just ignore the complaints and move on . he is not going to convince those offended . he should not however take action upon their complaint and change the game for such silly matters .

ThyMagicSword1474d ago

If many people get "offended" by his sillish design-choices, he better changes the game for "such silly matters", do you think its funny to stare at such ridiculousness and thinking: "why o why?", while playing the f... game? Do ya? Funny, aint you?

Baka-akaB1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

Many ? where are those so called many people ? Oh that bunch of angry blogs and site that got no news since Next gen consoles had their massive info blow out , and since GTA aint there yet ?

Get mad and pissant all you want , if you have an issue with his perviness ... then have it at least since MGS1 , with a russian blonde fighting in the snow with a Bikini top .

Is him explaining himself and giving "apologies" changing anyone's mind ? Nope , it's pointless , he should move and probably will .

Hell i should move on too , there is barely a conversation there to be had with you

EXVirtual1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

I get that Kojima is trying to get this whole sex appeal thing going, but that design isn't amazing.
I think that if a female character has good clothing with some attractive features, then it draws me to it more. But Quiet is basically wearing a thong and bra. Plus, with the tone of MGS, it can get kinda distracting.
That being said, it's nothing Kojima or even anyone should worry about.
