Kojima seems to be so inspired this week...

_DarkCharizard_2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

Metal Gear Solid should die along with him. (Hopefully not for the next 20-30 years though :P)

LOL MGS 128 "the cane of the grandad"

Peppino72539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

I hope it continues too as long as it stays true to MGS formula and doesn't go mainstream to accommodate the masses!

morganfell2539d ago

It will be interesting to see what this PS3/Vita title is on which he is working. Hopefully at E3 we will get a glimpse of his new Transfarring game.

no1 tolled kratos that...

dantesparda2539d ago

OMG, Kojima is going to die soon! Lol!

norman292539d ago

I get 4 disagrees for saying the man is a god :| shame on you people shame on you

DaTruth2539d ago

I love Metal Gear Solid, but that's some serious milking!!!

zeeshan2538d ago

I care about both Kojima and Old Snake. I hope none of them die and I hope Kojima lives a long and healthy life. I am sure he is one of those people who PASSIONATELY love their work and I am also dead sure that Kojima will keep working for as long as he can and while he is running the show, you KNOW that the games are going to be AWESOME! He is surely a legend!

OMG, I hope he isnt goign to die!!!!!

We need mroe Z.O.E.

And without him MGS and ZOE wouldnt be as awesome. Look at team ninja and NG3. No offense but so far without Itagaki NG3 looks to be catering to casuals and noobs who wont even ever try the game anyways.

Konami without Kojima would be lame probably, hes the man genius behind their best games.

nickjkl2538d ago

i dont like the mentality that one person makes a game good

princejb1342539d ago

metal gear will never die, after he dies i am going to keep playing it after i die my kids or gonna play it and so forth

Micro_Sony2539d ago

Hope you get better Kojima : (

The world can not loose 2 great people in one year.

Paradicia2539d ago

Where in the article does he say he's sick? :/

The series will live on in spirit but it won't be the same with out his creative genius behind the helm.

TheEatingVodka2538d ago

LOL so many 12 year olds in the comments seriously shut up

zeal0us2539d ago

Probably due to seeing his some of U.S fans when he went to USC.

Long as Konami don't sell the rights to Capcom or Activision. Don't need to see a popup telling me I need buy some dlc just to complete the mission. I think the series will just fine after his death.

morkendo2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

how he wants to try something new, and how he always gets sucked back into the Metal Gear Solid franchise.


showtimefolks2538d ago

I hope kjima stays alive for a long long time and keeps maki new mgs games. Also a new IP would be a welcome edition too

At pre e3 konami's conference their VP said that they would like to do a remake of mgs 1. Now a complete remake that sounds really good. Also I hope mgs portable ops makes the pan via psp-hd porgram with updated controls.

Can't wait to get the collectors edition of mgs hd collection at launch or at least the regular version

ikkokucrisis2538d ago

AS long AS it doesn't turn out like Star Wars!!

Treyb3yond2538d ago

I think kojima is a bit of an overrated, one trick pony. Mgs is a great series, but to my knowledge he's only ever done a few franchises. He rests on mgs too much.

As much as i love MGS i kinda hope it stops after he dies.Cuz like he said 'So of course I have tried in the past. I’ve tried to hand Metal Gear off to other people within the studio and I’ve tried to raise people up so they have the ability to take over. And I think since Metal Gear Solid 3 I’ve tried this and actually did hand it off and have other people come up with the story and come up with the game design. But for some reason it just never really works out. And, you know, I end up having to step in again to take charge and kind of fix things here and there and just get sucked back in unfortunately.”

Edit:Come on guys don't flame i just don't think anyone can make a MGS game like Hideo Kojima can.

Baka-akaB2539d ago

Just because he hasnt find a replacement yet , doesnt mean he never will . There is still time .

WildArmed2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

Imho, if the Metal Gear story does continue (as expansive and vast the universe is) I hope we don't see stories of Solid Snake / Naked Snake anymore.
I don't want anyone else but Kojima touching those characters.
I wouldn't mind his successor bringing in new character (or portraying the story of one of the character of MGS and his story -- like they are doing w/ Raiden)

I'm sure there are other operatives than just Snake.
I'd be interested in Ocelot's side of the story too, he has done his fair share of espionage.

jc485732539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

He said this years ago about passing it down to the next generation. Something about DNA and all. He actually has great confidence in his team. It's not like other companies where they pass the game to a total stranger w/o understanding who they're dealing with (even research is not enough). You need make friends first before you become family.

Give the ip to naughty dog

SneeringImperialist2539d ago

Uncharted and MGS arnt even similar so how would that work? would the main MGS character become an obnoxius superman bullet sponge? not hating on uncharted btw just saying that wouldnt work.

jc485732539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

unless Kojima adopts Naughty Dog as a student or sworn brother, then I really don't see how this could ever happen.

DigitalRaptor2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

Completely different developers with completely different design goals or ideas.

I'd rather see ND continue with their own IPs, and Kojima with his.

Hicken2539d ago

I can see what you mean, with how ND spins a story, and how you get engrossed in the game.

But as much as I love Naughty Dog, I haven't seen anything that shows they can- currently- successfully take over the MGS franchise.

Now, as others have said, if they work under or with Kojima for a considerable period of time on some exceptional games, THEN I can see them being able to do the Metal Gear series justice.
