Gay fish.

EDIT: Yea Kayne aint that great, he's alright though but nothing like he claims to be. Which is why he is a Gay Fish :)

i don't actually think that kanye is that good kojima is good so yano lol but thats just IMO

Reibooi2610d ago

I can't stand Kanye West. That pile can't sing(uses Auto tune in 90% of the songs he does which means he has no talent) and acts like a total ass whenever he gets a chance.

Kojima has created some of the best games ever made and has incredible visions and is a real genius when it comes to creating good games. There is NO comparison.

He shouldnt even be singing, I thought he was a rapper?

Music is retarded these days and have been for a while. Listen to Kanyes first songs and you'll see why he WAS good. Same thing with many other artists.

Kevin McCallister2610d ago

The auto tune thing was experimental and is used in no where near 90% of his music. Kanye is first and foremost a Producer and one of the best to ever do it. Take out his rapping and the singing and just listen to the music he's produced for all types of artists. Using samples or not, you couldn't deny he's some kind of musical prodigy and likely qualifies as talented since there's a good chance that none of us on N4G can walk in a studio, do what he does with a keyboard/live instruments, and have people pay thousands for it.

Kanye may run his mouth too much, but you can't deny his producing talents.

He created some of the best tracks for many different artists years before he even released his own album, and he still does. You'd be surprised to find out that some of the hit songs from some of your favorite artists were created by him.

You know who actually doesn't have talent though? Ke$ha, Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy, etc.

Reasons why people hate Kanye:

1. He was the first successful rapper that didn't rely on the "gangsta" image.
2. His ego.

Number 1 is NOT justified. Number 2 is justified. Where do you belong?

Part of the reason why people say Kanye doesn't have any talents is simply because they hate him, either because of reason #1 or #2. But that doesn't excuse you from saying he has no talents, because its simply not true.

no kanye is full of himself kojima is not

Donny2610d ago

kanye west is soo overrated its crazy.

Bnet3432610d ago

Kojima should never be compared to that racist jackass.

Blacktric2610d ago

You must be on drugs to compare Kojima with Kanye "EgoManiacGayFish" West. Though you can do this comparison with Aaron Greenzorg.

Wrathman2610d ago

kanye west is a super douche bag that more than likely would rather watch himself jerk into a mirror than have sex with a woman.

Defectiv3_Detectiv32610d ago

No, Igataki is more like the Kanye West. Full of himself, with really shallow work to back himself up.

Hideo Kojima is more like Dr. Dre. Mastermind behind the scenes.

Megaton2610d ago

That's the first thing that popped into my head. The Kanye/Itagaki, not so much the Kojima/Dre.

eagle212610d ago

Kanye West is a musical genius. His personal life is his own. I love his music, classic in every way. :)

eagle212610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

And this article proves no one reads articles on N4G. He is comparing controversy and success, not a 1:1 kind of comparison like you guys obviously believe. The last sentence of the article is "they both know how to ride controversy to success and are living proof there is no such thing as bad publicity." Start reading guys....LOL.

and f*** the haters...LOL

and Dr. Dre has rode controversy to success too. :)

Read articles N4G. You make it seem like he was saying they are just alike. This is about promotion and publicity. :)

menoyou2610d ago

kanye is untalented and a complete retard with a terrible personality" wahh wahh bush dont care about black people" LOL

kojima is talented, intelligent, and a cool dude. what a terrible comparison. they are total opposites.

Dark General2610d ago

Bad comparison. I don't listen to hip hop anymore (haven't since I was about 16) and I remember when Kanye first came out he was actually making interesting music. Spaceship, Jesus Walks, Diamonds from Sierra Leon and a few others but then he got a huge ego trip. That along with the general direction that mainstream music has tooken in the last few years has turned to crap. Kojima on the on the other hand seems to keep his works fresh and of course doesn't have a ego and he's a innovator.

Kojima has made legendary games, and is well respected in the video game industry by everyone including other developers, gamers, and of course his peers.

Kanye is the complete opposite of that.

So... No... Kojima is NOT the Kanye of the video games industry.

eagle212610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

You obviously have no taste in hip hop music. :)

Kanye West has WON 14 Grammy's!!!! He has given more artists Grammy's in the past 10 years than any other producer. Get your facts straight. How can you not be respected and the academy has awarded you 14 times?

The only people who don't like Kanye, probably love Taylor Swift. LMAO

Mamajuana2610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

O.K. his first album was unbelievable. After that he had a few good songs but that's about it. Kanye is not as good as he claims to be. DJ Premier, Dr. Dre, Large Professor, and RZA are all better producers than he is. Hip Hop music, more like Hip Pop music, hip hop has gone down the drain.

As far as the Grammy's go, I can't respect an academy that nominates the Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga for album of the year. That's not even music, it's noise. How many grammys has Nas won, or Gangstarr, or the Roots, Mos Def all great artists, better than Kanye, that don't even get nominated.

RedPawn2609d ago

Hideo Kojima is the J Dilla of video games, nuff said.

djfullshred2610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

One thing these two have in common...I don't like Kanye's music or Kojima's boring games.

dinkeldinkse2610d ago (Edited 2610d ago )

Kojima is actually good at what he does and has something Kanye West has never had, TALENT.

And to my knowledge, Kojima isn't a gay fish.

Bobby Kotick is the Kanye West of the videogame industry.

BYE2610d ago

He's more like the Pharell Williams of the video game industry.

Both have a natural drive for progression and innovation.

mcgrawgamer2610d ago

Ceekay that is probably one of the most accurate comparisons I've come across. I would have also accepted Timbaland as well. bubs.
