Hideo Kojima is a legend :) With Metal Gear Solid 1-4 he has created incredible things, with philosophy and big sense. Many people became a gamer through him. With MGS2 he has predicted the NSA situation and how much America is controlled by the market. With Zone of the Enders 2 the best anime Mecha Game. On the PS3 there was a strong Castlevania title, which had a nice quality thanks to Kojima. The successor was really bad and got bad reviews without him. And with P..T. demo something ingenious. In addition, Kojima is one of the few developers responsible for everything (story, design, dialogues, gameplay features, characters (together with Yoji Shinkawa), world-details, Ideas ect :)
I was able to talk to him for 10 minutes at the Games Convention (in Germany) and ask a lot of questions. I used that correctly: D It was very interesting! Soundtracks and emotions are an important topic for him. Even as a human i like him very much. How he lived his life, had a very clear idea as a child, and arranges for the homeless in Japan.
Thats why and because more reasons, i love Kojima-san! For this reason, "Death Stranding" is bought on the first day, in future. I love his passion for video games!
And even MGS 5 was partly awesome,you can really notice the struggle between him and Konami midgame sadly.
