They say creative never rest for too long, and apparently Hideo Kojima doesn’t seem to be about to take any long break after the completion of Death Stranding.
Hideo is such a hard worker. Death Stranding being done in 3 years with a small team is an accomplishment though they did have help Kojima + horror sounds fantastic
Kojima is an extremely talented guy that truly loves videogames (along with success offcourse) as we gamers ...imo he is the last of his kind , that kind of developpers that could concetrate the majority of skills in one person ---> ,director, programmer , writer,art-director , gampley mechanics -designer , graphics-engine designer, play tester, etcetc.....Back in 80-90s this type of all-around -developer was more common (Shinji mikami , miyamoto Sagakuchi , Itagaki, Kenichi Iwao) that s why we had the luck enjoy such legendary gems
Very well said!!! And great point!
Screaming Sinkholes since he cant use Silent Hills , or Quiet Mountains , Noiseless Humps
Yep, you can say what you like subjectively about how his games actually play, but the sheer hard work and focus that goes into his teams vision is unparalleled. A master of his art form who truly loves his medium and isn't in it for a quick buck.
Wow. Definitely dedicated. Merry Christmas!
Aren’t we all working our hats off. I just hope he makes another action game.
We are, but people are quick to call devs "lazy" these days. Got to give credit where credit is due when they do work hard.
Given that Japan isn't a Christian country and Christmas isn't that big there, this isn't newsworthy to me.
Exactly! I came here to post this too, haha!
Except Christmas is also a secular holiday, as evidenced by its prevalence among atheists in the West, and although Japan doesn't celebrate Christmas in the same way, there are ways in which they do celebrate it, such as spending time with their significant other, or ordering a big bucket of KFC, or both. Seriously, look it up, it's fascinating how big KFC is over there, especially around Christmastime. It is true that it's not celebrated in the same way, but it's still a recognized holiday. While it may not be nearly as big as it is in the West, it may also be way more in the spirit of what the holiday is supposed to be about, minus the whole Jesus thing. Aside from the religious angle, Christmas is to my understanding meant to be about togetherness, or at least rest. We don't practice it that way in the West and celebrate rampant consumerism way more than we should, and stress over all sorts of aspects of the holidays that by and large are extraneous details that detract from what the holidays are supposed to be about. Japan conversely keeps things simple, and I think they're better for it. Kojima here is still working over a holiday. It may not be the holiday to end all holidays like it is here, but he's still making a sacrifice.
Strange that KFC is a holiday thing there. I suppose it’s the same way Coke became a Xmas symbol here.
It is not recognized as a holiday in Japan. They just simply know it exists but has no meaning whatsoever to them. Everyone I know in Japan, including myself, had to work on Christmas day. Most people don't start their winter holiday until the 28th unless you work for a foreign company. Kojima working was not a sacrifice. It is the norm.
So remove Christmas from the equation and you still find that Kojima is prototyping his next project. Otherwise, all you would be doing is leaving a comment that this isn't newsworthy to you. And that would just be silly.
oh my god isn't he so amazing /s
That's if Sony is still funding you after the critical failure of Death Stranding.
10 + games award overall? Im not sure its a critical failure. Perhaps game sell wise its not performing like others PS exclusives.
You might be confusing them for another publisher that closes its own studios at the first sign of trouble.
even tho Death Stranding isnt my type of game, im glad to have supported Kojima, im glad he got to make the game he wanted, and im most glad hes already working on something else.
In this one you are a garbage man. You ride on the back of a truck and empty dumpsters. It's the first Trash-type game.
You’re a baker in a post apocalypse wasteland and must gather ingredients to appease a meteor headed to Earth that’s actually an old god come to claim his bride that he mistakenly left on Earth. The baker will have the help from the ghost of Andrew Jackson and a small robot companion….the twist…the baker is actually a clone of the wife the old God is looking for.
Haven't played Death Stranding yet but the first MGS was so incredible that that alone makes this guy a genius. There's still nothing like MGS out there and it's a pity konami own the rights. Maybe Sony might buy the IP and we see MGS6 as PS5 exclusive made with Decima. Just imagine a Kojima/Guerrilla MGS game. Make it happen Sony!
Hideo was smashed off his tits and did some doodles on christmas eve...
Hopefully he at least ordered some KFC to keep him going. That's legit what Japanese people like to eat around Christmas time.
horror game kojima, horror game
