You have heard it before: all good things eventually come to an end. Eventually, Hideo Kojima will no longer be as involved as he is in the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
A Metal Gear Solid game starring The Boss & Cobra Unit needs to happen.
He should have ended it at 4...why change the main voice actor and you don't even plan on being around.
Big Boss and Solid Snake are not the same person... So why have the same voice actor?
Even if their clones doesn't mean they have the EXACT same voice.
^ http://metalgear.wikia.com/... David Hayter voiced Solid snake, Snake and Naked Snake(beside in Mgs4)
MrSwank is right, he can't quit while he is ahead, So many characters,and a Old Big Boss/young legendary Solid Snake, Grey Fox... it needs to end on a Metal Gear 2(MSX) remake/reboot. 4 just didn't cut it, especially after playing Peace Walker.
He had his chance after MGS4, it ended the overall story he started with and the majority of the main plot points were resolved. Yet he makes MGSV, ANOTHER prequel were it looks like he's forced another story in. Then he has the cheek to talk about inconsistencies with the overall story. I mean he really had his chance after MGS4.
he was going to stop being involved after MGS3 IIRC, but there was too much backlash from the fans and he stayed there due to the pressure, which i think is stupid since he should do whatever he wants to do.
He said MGS2 would be his last also. He may have said it before then, but you're right the fans explode every time he says anything like that. I'm sure Konami doesn't like him talking that way either.
He was not going to be involved in MGS3 either. MGS3 development was started with him as only a supervisor/producer role, but he thought they didn't do a good enough job without him. To be honest, Kojima is lying to himself, he wants this "glorious" retirement to happen, but every time it comes to it, he sticks with what he knows.
I would definitely like to see Kojima move on to something new, but I also wouldn't mind just one last MGS game that takes place between MGSV and MGS1 with Solid Snake as the lead for MGS6.
You could have Solid Snake again if they decide to reboot/remake the series so nobody messes or ruins Kojimas timeline. Like do MGS again but expand on it, make it bigger, add things not in the original...I mean at the end of the day it's a new timeline so things can change. When you get to the second game it will be more different since the first game would of happened or ended differently. Raiden could of been killed as a child soldier meaning it's up to Snake to infiltrate the Tanker and Plant by himself.....maybe you defeat Ocelot at the end of the game instead of Solidus and he gets away instead....changing the ENTIRE game timeline after that. MG3 could be a prequel like MGS Snake Eater but you play as Solidus Snake. MGS4...well....MGS would be totally different. I suppose in this time line they would make it that Snake discovers earlier about his rapid aging issue and Naomi or someone else fixes it before it happens. The same reboot/remake idea could work for Resident Evil aswell if Capcom decided to start a a new
I wouldn't want a reboot. Once Kojima is done with Metal Gear, so am I. But is it not possible to have a Solid Snake game that takes place in late 80's/early 90's under Kojima's current timeline?
The thing is though whether we want one or not...it's going to happen. If they are going to do one in the future I'd rather they use the same characters, locations, story but in a different way.
I could dig this. I can imagine the two original games re-written to fit this timeline. The first game's form acting as a prologue, and MG2: Solid Snake being the meat and potatoes of the game. I'd like to be more of a direct homage to Escape from New York. I imagine "Zanzibar Land" as an actual country or city to be infiltrated. With characters that Snake can interact with. BUT this is a MUST: It MUST feature a strong 80's asthetic. Kind of like the filter MGS5 was supposed to have but ended up being too much for the consoles. (probs the older ones)
Good riddance. Kojima have lost the touch with the MGS franchise since MGS4.
You mean because every game isn't a carbon copy of MGS 1? Pretty sure there's plenty of people that complain about that issue on numerous other franchises. If it's not one thing, it's another with some of you. What did you all do before you could complain on the internet? Probably had fun and just enjoyed games for what they were...
Lost touch??, I think Peace Walker is the beginning of a spectacular launchpad for future MGS
I don't see why people blame Kojima. The only reason the Metal Gear Solid franchise continues is because Konami just loves making money! Let's be honest Metal Gear Solid is money maker. Kojima agrees and continues to make more Metal Gear Solid games because he works for Konami. Simple as that.
A MGS game without Kojima? http://youtu.be/yg2u_De8j5o
Heard he's going to reboot silent hill.
No, he said if he could get into another franchise, it would be Silent Hill. He made no mention of actually working on an SH game. Even then, he was reluctant and said "I would have to prepare myself to have nightmares daily". Kojima is not doing an SH game. Period*. *(Right now)
I fear that day mainly because its under Konami and they will very easily milk the franchise to death. they already are slipping their hands in it, thus we got MGS5 broken into pieces, but in my opinion it will become like Final Fantasy. We'd have MGS 15 within two years lol
This guy dont know when to stop talking
metal gear solid v is big boss end same for kojima is time to hand the throne to another solid boss.
Doesnt he say this after each game he release? Lol
Wha? What do you mean "without him?" If it happens, the last Metal Gear... should feature Kojima as the main character, your character, Metal Gear: Kojima.
That sounds like some weird unlockable mission, like The Tofu Survivor in Resident Evil 2 or Snake VS. Monkey in MGS3, and that's a good thing.
MGS w/o Kojima isn't a MGS anymore the same way FF is not FF anymore after Sakaguchi left the same way RE isn't RE anymore after Mikami left the same way SH isn't SH anymore after Team Silent disband the same way Diablo isn't Diablo anymore w/o Blizzard North etc, that's the sad truth all my favorite games except MGS have turn to shit, to a big pile of dog crap & the reason behind this is that the ppl who start it all isn't there anymore, some random dudes is in charge now & their main job is to ruin everything for us long time fans.
We all do, we would also like a better, more efficient engine.
The series should continue, and hopefully royalties and such are continually paid to his family for the legacy of his creation
The whole situation reminds me of the Hayao Miazaki fiasco...I doubt he has the testis to move on for various factors. Just saying.
He really is a movie fanatic and always wanted to direct films from interviews I read hes friends with quite a few and actually trades ideas between his games and movies. I could see him moving on from gaming to become a director in time.
He says this at lest 3 nights a week
MG without him? Yeah, right. Because Revangance was that one masterpiece we had all been waiting for.
He already said the series has tired him out
