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 story...so 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...
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."
@GusHasGas 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.
Or he'll do nothing about the situation and everyone will eventually forget about the whole thing..,
Why would any character in that situation where clothes like that?
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.
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...
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 .
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?
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
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.
This site is full of his shit characters, its getting ridiculous, really. Why not put some "serious" characters in the game? Mentally unable, mentally instable? Koji-Kondo dissapoints me, really ...and all those mentally handicaped fandicks acting like it is cool having such virtual abomninations in-game? Are you serious? Oh ..."her ass is too flat", "her face is too fat", "my ass is too fat too", tutuuuu ...stop it, it is a Piece of sh2t made of polygon, deal with it.
I agree with the point of making the characters more serious and realistic , it suits MGS universe. I still think kojima can improve MGS more then this. But i'm satisfied for what he will bring in V though . The more reasonable the game the better. Best example is the last of us. That's what will take gaming to the next level :P ..
He is just a perverted old man. Let him be.
He is perverted WTF so what am I, I love looking at beautiful women especially when I go to the beach.
He shouldn't have to explain himself, if you don't like the game because of what the character is wearing then dont buy it. Go and play Mario brothers
If I want to see full-time ridculousness, I just browse the internet, but leave this kind of BS out of videogames, please. Watching TV does not allow me to see the things I want to see, browsing the Internet does not always allow me to see what I want to see, there is always some ridiculous sh2t thrown at me & my poor eye-lids and now Videogames, are we joking? Is this some Kind of late-summer joke?
Nobody complained wheen you could get the BatB squad from MGS4 dancing and posing infront of a camera... or all the pin up posters in... Every MGS game... This is nothing new, people are complaining about something that has been in MGS since the PS1 days!
Too many f*cking crybabies on the internet nowadays.Don't like it don't buy it simple as that.
Yep . People expecting him to tackle this with taste, or lamenting the impracticality of character's dresses, or disappointed by how tacky it all is, i must assume never played a MGS or never liked one.
That's what MGS has always been, some good and interesting point in a sea of weird wacky shit that sometimes comes across as charming, sometimes as gross (also subjective).
MGS has always been overwritten, melodramatic and humorous, and i don't think it's an acquired taste, either you can stand it or you don't.
it's in Moment like those you can spot "posers" , those that pretend they know games they clearly missed , but but deemed to cult and "unseemingly" to pass upon .
Of course Not everyone privy to Metal Gear past HAS to agree with his quirks and tastes , but some people , especially in the so called "press" had reactions way too extreme for old time MGS players imo .
This is nothing new to mgs. I bet most of the idiots that are complaining about this don't even play the franchise. They complain as if kojima is the only one to do something like this in the gaming industry. There are games that have done much worse. People need to stop crying like freakin soccer moms its a rated mature game for effing sakes if you cant handle it dont play it or buy it.
It's not really his fault, if the cosplayers stopped relying on skimpy clothing and sex appeal, and society focused on attractive of things other than half naked women, than the problem wouldn't even be there.
A female soldier in a bikini. Reaction: No, omg, silly, perverted kojima, how could he. GTA with all the killing and illegal shit you do. Reaction: OMG, BEST GAME EVERRRRRZZZZ, GOTY, GOTG. So you see, the internet is full of hypocrites, crybabies and morons.
nobody give a memo to kojima what in this moment you can not try include sexy girls in your games without have to deal with the closed minded,feminazi and especially the hypocrites "journalist" what take advantage of this thing to make controversy and gets hits in his articles.
He can do whatever he want with his game.
God forbid that anyone intentionally design a sexy and/or unrealistic character in a ****ing video game. I guess we should only have average- to ugly-looking characters in our games... /s This is just another case of whiny people trying to create a problem where there was never one to begin with. Honestly, if this collection of pixels bothers you that much, just play a different game, or better yet, find a new hobby.
HEY Kojima, you don't have to clarify S***!!!!!
