Kojima's design documents? I rike it!
My aspirations are to be a game designer one day...who better to learn from than Kojima?

@rockleex
Well, check out the document:
"Metal Gear Solid III
Written as MGSIII for short. The three Roman numerals symbolize the three tallest skyscrapers in
Manhattan, the setting for the game.
Instead of proceeding on to MGS2, as one might expect, we are making MGS3. The question in peoples’
minds, ‘Why is it 3 and not 2?’ will have a big impact."
.
LOL....obviously that idea didn't stick.

@Below
Yep.

Probably realised how terrible that would have been for continuity.

They ultimately scrapped the idea because of 9/11.

There was even going to be a battle that took place near the twin towers.

@Giant_Chibi I didn't know that. It actually makes sense!

rockleex2025d ago

I wanna see the designs for MGS3! >:D

xino2025d ago

this looks more like story bible than full game design doc:/

-Ninja Gaiden 3- is sick!:)

King-Leonidas2025d ago

its because ur tiny brain cant comprehend masterpieces like mgs2

visualb2024d ago

if you think thats a bible, you are still too immature for the real world son

most research, proposition, project plans in any company triples this

go read picture books come back when letters don't scare you

Foliage2024d ago

"triple" is an understatement, think 300-400 pages.

This looks like a basic early concept for a design push, the document itself isn't even in a state you can use it as a concept plan. It looks like a very basic early production overview.

... Raiden was supposed to be appealing to women?
O.o

I did like the "We will not pursue cinematic visuals" part though. They focused on making the game fun, which is why I must've replayed the game over 20 times.

Though it seems their flowchart for the game got heavily modified. =/

... and Mantis mask sounds awesome.

Drano2024d ago

Only 20 times?! YOU'RE A DISGRACE! :P
