I was thrown aback by the 10 year remark. Then I figured it out,,, he is not being awarded for the full Metal Gear series,(of about 20years) but only the Metal Gear Solid renditions?? Why? The best one was the first! And I am not a classic gamer at heart, but I recall the first game being the true spirit of the Metal Gear series!

p.s. did he gwet a face left???!!! Whoa... how changes by years in every pic I see.

Well done Hideo...well done!

@meepmoopmeep

Despite your disagrees, the guy is a genious. The Metal Gear Solid series is one of the best series' in the world of gaming. I've loved everything he's done, from MGS to the ZOE series. One of the most visionary developers since Mario, he deserves accolades. People might disagree with me, but he has been an influential presence in the gaming world. MGS4 rocked. A bit heavy on cutscenes, but the game itself was magical. People that disagree haven't played the games. It's that simple.

OVERRATED!! Only kidding. I didn't love the latest MGS installment and he sometimes says things that makes gamers scratch their heads (at least he's earned that right unlike others in gaming); his talent is undeniable. I still vividly remember moments from the first MG where the writing was amazing not only for a video game but in general. Congratulations Sir. Keep them coming.

'i will continue to create games as long as i live' -Hideo Kojima

nice one.... be even nicer if the games are metal gear and on playstation =p
Rhythmattic  +   1972d ago
I Actually Hope he spreads his "AWESOMENESS" to all platforms...

I am a New to Console Gaming, and MGS4 was my first foray into the MGS Series.

I was truly BLOWN AWAY by its gameplay, story and Graphics.

And for this, as a gamer, I hope no one misses out on Hideo's Genius. Now and in the Future.
