Spiegel Online Interview: Hideo Kojima talks about pacifism, movies and GTA

via Kotaku:

"Reader maxax caught an interview with Hideo Kojima in Spiegel Online, the website for German-language Der Speigel, one of Europe's leading mainstream news magazines. Maxax translated it to English on his blog and so we offer up to you here, too.

Kojima explains his brand of antiwar sentiment, which is more or less circumspect about the reasons and results of war rather than outright pacifism. He also pines for a future where smaller, art-house productions are comparatively viable, among a world of titles that are increasingly developed for blockbuster effect, like Grand Theft Auto IV and MGS4.

Kojima said that action, sex and gambling are the genres "immediately understood all over the world," and expands on that in a thought-provoking way."

This man so diverse in his thinking. He is truly an incredible mind, not only of games but politics and world behavior all together. Whatever this guy does will always be met with attention.

again there is no need to compare or even mention both in the same breath . We only do so because itagaki in his delusion of grandeur believe he is alike the greatest people of the industry .

Kojima basically created at least one gaming genre , and kept improving it along with storytelling techniques .
itakagi is at best a pin up , or in a less demeaning way , like any sexy and currently popular holywood actress , that isnt oscar or award worthy . Someone that did and do good works , but will never really have a profound impact on the gaming world , not one like Kojima.
His two games series got their public and might be good , but arent ground breaking and wont resist the test of time .

I know i'll replay Metal gear 1 and metal gear solid 1 in 15 years ... while i know that i wont be touching itagaki's ninja gaiden and even less his DOA .

Hideo Kojima deserves the recognition and respect he gets from the industry and gaming community. There is no other creator close his level or caliber that portrays such story telling, humor and innovation.
