Hideo Kojima Explains Quiet, Blames Backlash on Cultural Differences, Details MGS5's Themes

In the past few days many have criticized Hideo Kojoma for his portrayal of Quiet, that some considered oversexualized and sexist. The legendary developer doesn’t seem to be concerned and has no intention to go down without a fight. He gives an interesting explanation on the design philosophy behind the character and of the themes supporting Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. (Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Update Update: Kojima posted his own English translation of the first tweet. The post has been updated with it, replacing the Japanese original

Update 2: the second tweet has always been translated to English by Kojima himself, and added to the article.

...Even though we've seen the character having some skin-altering abilities to camouflage herself.

There is no cultural differences when it comes to sexy half naked girls!? Real men love that shit no matter what shape, size or ethnicity they may be :-D
It's just that the U.S has more cry babies that have nothing better to do that's all.

That's the cultural difference though. The U.S. was founded on Puritan ideologies that permeated the culture and exist in some form even today. Conversely, if you look at Japan's history in terms of sex and sexuality, they were far less conservative in their past than they are now. And even now they are only publicly conservative, but privately?...

i dont think its a matter of being a "real man"
some people just dont like provocative character models. some like female characters with designs that leave more to the imagination.
im not trying to say "CHANGE IT" because kojima said it fit with the character in a way, im just saying at first glance im not a fan of it. this doesn't make me a "cry baby", a feminazi, a homosexual, or a masochistic woman worshipper. it makes me not a fan of a design.

He said "I want to make my characters EROTIC so their figures would sell better".

No cultural difference, just objectifying based on sex appeal. Take it as you want, but that's basically what pimps do as well.
Irishguy95  +   723d ago
Culturally, there is massive difference of Reaction due to this stuff @ Winter. Japan don't give a **** about 'objectifying based on sex appeal' and the US do. How this came to be? Christianity versus Shintoism and Buddhism. The values still fall through to today.

"Take it as you want, but that's basically what pimps do as well." Lol, yes, quiet is a real person who gets ****ed for money. Poor girl.

...I am a real man. I like looking at female sexiness just like any other heterosexual man.

But I DON'T necessarily want that when I'm playing a game designed to sell me on an artistic vision. If something seems like it was shoehorned in for the sake of shallowly appealing to a specific demographic (as sexuality so often is), then yes, it offends me not as a man, but as a consumer.

All that being said though, this particular example isn't as ridiculous as people are making it seem, especially now that Kojima has explained that she has a camouflaging ability that benefits from her near-nudity.
CryofSilence  +   723d ago
Just watch this:

She is the one being tortured at the beginning. Real MGS fans never doubted Kojima's ability to design good characters. If I had to guess, her design is made to make you feel guilt about the exploitation of women. At the very least, we should reserve judgment for when it is due.

Kojima is a true artist, what he does few people are able to understand. But those who do, can see the genius thought behind it.

I think it's his creative choice to do whatever suits his story best, if you don't like it then don't buy it.

Haters gonna hate. Those other third-party devs just put in their two-cents for no reason. MGSV is going to sell like oxygen on Mars either way.

Kojima has always had unique characters with amazing backstories and I have always loved them. MGS is the only game where I've cared to know every detail about the other characters/enemies.
PSjesus  +   723d ago
Any one watched the MGS3 documentary with (Subsistence collection)

the original design for the Boss is topless(or one side i think )and the head of the snake scar is on her breast and they called her (laughing Cobra) because when she shoot by machine-gun her breast bounce and looks like the snake is laughing.

but then Kojima changed it completely because of cultural difference

If it is just a video game to you would you rather play as lara croft with square shaped boobs or with natural and more realistic looking boobs. Last time I checked character models are important in almost every video game that uses them. In this case the complaint is more towards her butt. So would you rather play as a women with no butt rather then one that has a nice curve to it?

People didn't had a issue with mgs 4. Its just that after you get games like The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite which represent woman in a different light and do justice with their characters and then you see shit like this especially from Kojima who has praised these games it's kind of heartbreaking. It also shows gamers are maturing and don't necessarily want sexism in their games and don't expect it from a game veteran like Kojima. For me personally I find that outfit a little disturbing too. Could had definitely made it a little less extreme and ppl would had been fine with it.

There's no frickin' sexism here and not wanting gorgeous women dressed in sexy outfits is not a sign of maturity.

For goodness sake people don't know what maturity is. It ISN'T demanding that themes be altered to fit personal tastes, it IS accepting all themes and simply ignoring those that don't suit your own tastes.

Question: Is anytime in which a woman is not fully dressed, in a form of media, considered sexist? Should all women just where the hijab and men only be allowed to have a beard if they are married? Should there not be any guns in MGSV so as not to promote violence? Gelassenheit for its all?

I support people living and believing what they will. What I don't support is people trying to force their will on others. Whether through violence, peaceful protest, or fear campaigning; they create the same levels of resentment and rejection from me. If you don't like how something is done don't buy it, but don't try to force a change. Especially for something that won't actually make a difference in how you may live.
Baka-akaB  +   723d ago
That's funny considering most female characters of the MGS mytho are treated fairly well and rather strong willed and as people love to say independant .

None of them were damsels in distress , nor pimping themselves
KoolSaladBro  +   723d ago
Because Kojima has never done something like this before right? Not with Fortune, the fact that the Beauty and the Beast Unit are models. Not even when you played as Raiden naked and you could cartwheel.
I can tell people like you have never fully experienced an MGS game.
elnacho  +   723d ago
@Uncharted56: totally with you on that. People who reply that "Kojima has done this before, so it's not a problem" are missing the point: the video game industry has evolved in the past 10 years and what was valid for MGS3 might be irrelevant today. Games such as The Last Of US, or even the last Tomb Raider, show us that the industry as a whole is evolving, that there can be strong female characters that don't wear (only) a G-string and fishnets in the middle of a war.

It's also concerning that some people are still trying to defend Kojima's artistic integrity on this one, when the man himself said he did this to "sell more figurines". So give whatever justification you want, at the end of the day the character model was revealed exactly to sell more goodies, and that's what it's gonna do, so I laugh when I read about "Kojima's integrity".

Kojima can change the story all he wants, his first statement was that it would help make more money.

So, people who mention "Kojima's artistic integrity" as a point for their argument can be dismissed. This leaves very few people with valid arguments on the subject trying to defend the man.
OrangePowerz  +   723d ago
I played all MGS games including the PSP games and that character design tops the list. In previous games the characetrs had at least proper pants on while showing some cleavage except Fortune in MGS2 but she was invincible so she didn`t had to worry about wearing something that isn`t practical for gun fights or crawling around on the floor.

If I would see quiet in a Desert during a gun fight I would laugh at her for how unpractical she dresses unless she was working under cover as a hooker because that`s how she looks like.
ZodTheRipper  +   723d ago
I'd love to hear your honest opinion on her after you've played the game.

My opinion will still be that the outfit is horrible for somebody fighting in a war scenario. I was always looking forward a lot to MGS games, but with each news piece on the game my interest in MGS5 get`s lower.

Question is if it is all Kojimas decision, after all every time Konami get`s him to do another MGS because it`s one of the few franchise that make them pretty much guaranteed money. Konami might follow the same crap approach that other Japanese companies follow for a few years now to make games appeal more to the western audience like Capcom does with Resident Evil or Square with FF13. Everything would point towards that so far like getting Sutherland on board to play the main character because he is very well known in the states or showing the game at the MS conference.

I trust Kojima, I don`t trust Konami letting him do what he wants.

This is the comment a (male) feminist posted on one of my past news pieces on the issue just two days ago.

"in regards to males it doenst matter if they're objectified because they're protected by male privilege"

No, I'm not joking. Quoted word by word.
Swiggins  +   723d ago
Here's the thing, those half naked males aren't being objectified, at least that's not the intent.

When a buff-shirtless man is present it's almost always as a way for men to feel empowered, and it plays into the power fantasy of the male psyche.

The "Oh well it happens to us too" doesn't hold up anyway because the ratio of male objectification to female objectification is almost nil. Just look at advertisements in the last 50 years or so and you'll see that I'm right.

Okay, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now. Though I'm still a bit nettled by his remark about her design being chiefly for the sake of female cosplayers and action figure sales... I mean surely that's the height of cynicism and of being a sell-out? Unless of course him saying that was some kind of meta-commentary on the industry, and the character of Quiet is actually a commentary on the representation of women and their objectification under the male gaze- in which case the sexists who think Kojima is just like them are in for a shock.

^ makes sense
^ Makes sense, if I see one more comment saying "oh it's too hot in the desert" I'm gonna have an aneurism. Last time I checked, being hot in the desert and protected or in camo is better than being physically "hot" in the desert with soldier burns thanks to heavy gear. Above explains perfectly how I feel.

But you don't know anything about the character. Kojima is saying that there is a logical reason for her exposure that does make sense.
Even Quiet's actor said that there is a reason.

This backlash is because people think there is no reasoning behind it but there is.

And I don't know why you're comparing Quiet to real world Snipers when she is not your average sniper. There are things about this character that are above reality.

If this was some other game with characters that have sex appeal or are wearing revealing outfits, it would have been nothing to talk about. I can see a lot of people just voicing their opinion on this character simply because it is a big name franchise that they know would get attention.

For example the BF4 developer: Are you telling me you made a tweet about every revealing character from all recent movie/ video game you have seen and played recently?

I thought so.

Honestly, I'm surprised people are discovering the sexy part of Metal Gear.
- MGS1: Sniper Wolf's boobs, Meryl's panties;
- MGS2: naked Raiden, Olga's sexy armpits, Fortune's leotard;
- MGS3: Eva's boobs and pipe show, The Boss' scar;
- MGS4: Naomi's boobs, all Frogs are women, being able to jiggle Rose's breast, B&B Corps and the hidden photo shoot;
- Peace Walker: zooming on female characters in cutscenes show them in panties, plus the "special mission" with Paz and Kaz;

Plus the hundreds of sexy girl posters and other sexy easter eggs like the radar in Arsenal Gear. So yeah, Metal Gear Solid always had some sexy characters or sexy hidden stuff. Nothing surprising.

He shouldnt have to defend himself for the art direction he too. All of those directors and haters need to fuck off.
