Good read.

Kojima's games are beyond games.

I completely disagree with Sony fans regarding Kojima. I don't see how it took "talent" to first completely rip off the Kyle Reese character from Terminater, and later the Snake Pliskin character from Escape from New York.

His writing is completely convuluted and incoherent. I have never played a Metal Gear game that by the end, I didn't end up thinking that it was a a literary abortion. The 3rd person gameplay is clumsy. And his games all the way 80's are blatantly obvious attempts of an eastern dev trying to make a western game. And what's with all of the out of place sexual perversion?

I know that some people like Kojima, but I personally think that him and the MG series are over rated.
