CraveOnline: "It’s amusing to think of Shigeru Miyamoto as a primary influence on Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima. Though a professed admirer of the Mario creator’s work, the two men couldn’t be more different outside of their penchant for making fantastic videogames. Miyamoto is the modest genius who lives a simple life and works in his garden (which gave him the idea for Pikmin), while Kojima, though certainly a humble guy in interviews, has an obvious flair for the dramatic. I’d imagine that’s a prerequisite for someone who describes his next game as one that offers “limitless gameplay,” almost as nonchalantly as if it were a footnote or tacked-on feature. “Oh, yes, we decided to toss in ‘limitless gameplay’ this year. Finally got around to that.”"
