Let's compare Hideo Kojima to the other controversy machine
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
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.
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.
He's no Starsmith
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
kanye west is soo overrated its crazy.
Kojima should never be compared to that racist jackass.
You must be on drugs to compare Kojima with Kanye "EgoManiacGayFish" West. Though you can do this comparison with Aaron Greenzorg.
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.
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.
That's the first thing that popped into my head. The Kanye/Itagaki, not so much the Kojima/Dre.
Kanye West is a musical genius. His personal life is his own. I love his music, classic in every way. :)
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. :)
Agreed, totally a gay fish
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.
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.
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
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.
Hideo Kojima is the J Dilla of video games, nuff said.
One thing these two have in common...I don't like Kanye's music or Kojima's boring games.
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.
He's more like the Pharell Williams of the video game industry. Both have a natural drive for progression and innovation.
Ceekay that is probably one of the most accurate comparisons I've come across. I would have also accepted Timbaland as well. bubs.
the background is killing me,
kojima is the Collin Mcrea of the gaming industry. Sorry if i have mispelt his name. Hideo Kojima Kazunori Yamauchi and the list goes on
Just because he's dead doesn't mean we can't use his name. Or are you being serious?
"MGS4 was also the start of the departure from Tactical Espionage Action, wouldn’t be a surprise if that was for the same reason. " What is he trying to say here? That Kojima said MSG4 wasn't about Tactical Espionage Action? Doesn't it say those three words on the box? Or is he trying to say Kojima again said MSG4 would be his final MSG only to end up making another one soon after? Confusing.
It was the start of the departure, MGS4 seemed more action and less tactical to me, compared to the rest of the games. And in regards to the article: He is not, untill he interupts an award speech that has nothing to do with him, (which would be pretty hysterical to see, admitedly)
I'mma let you finish but psbeyond just made one of the dumbest comparisons of all time!
I say david jaffe is more of a kanye west.
I always thought it was that Itagaki guy from Team Ninja
did I miss something? did Kojima say that president obama hates white people?
No that'd be glenn beck, rush limbaugh, michael savage etc people you give a pass to, and kanye didn't say bush hated black people he said he didn't care about them.
Meh. I thought it was funny. You get -2 points though for trying to defend Kayne, that dude's a douche. Nice way to get personal without knowing anything about me. So I guess that makes you a douche too. It was kinda funny, but I feel sad for you and you need something more in your life so here are +2 points.
If by Kanye West you mean racist and a worthless piece of sh*t, then I would have to say no.
Why is kanye west racist? For calling someone racist? Wouldn't that make you racist?
It would mainly make him ignorant. But no one on this can even fathom what neither ye and/or Kojima are like out side of their respective industries it's like what I said in my comment.
Kanye is pure garbage. I don't see him in chicago, and kojima is on a wole diff page then that clown. How dare u disrepect this man. Gameplayin this gen is really turning trash. What type of new moon tweens keep making all these wack ass opinions/editorials?
It's kind of funny I don't like to comment on these type of "articles" because I find them, asinine, redundant, sometimes hyperbolic and hypocritical. If you want to compare a man whom no one on God's Green Earth really knows about then I would have call you a blogging fool not a 'journalist' no matter what your credentials are. People tear other people down every day esp. on websites like so, you do not know Kojima nor Kanye West so why pose this rhetorical question and post it on the net for people to take it and run with, maybe even take it out of context and use it to start something that has nothing to do with them? The people on this site are good examples, look at their 'Justified' comments and read my statement.
you, psbeyond, imma let you finish, but kojima is one of the best devs of all time!
Ah, looking for hits, eh?
LOL! Sure.. but the main difference one is actually a real artist and has original creative thoughts which blow many people's minds.. who do you think i'm talking about :P
no he is the beyonce
Does Hideo Kojima like fishsticks? ;)
why has this got approved??
No, of corse not. Hideo Kojima is more like the God of the video game industry.
