Metal Gear is Kojima's biggest failure according to Kojima
March 30, 2012 06:04 pm
That's right. Hideo Kojima said that the Metal Gear series is his biggest failure. What? "Failure!" Who does he think he is, Hideo Kojma?
Maybe he's being a bit harsh on himself (and he later admits that its also his greatest success) but his reasons behind declaring it his biggest failure is something we here at The Snake Soup have been pointing out for years.
"I donít like necessarily that people think Metal Gear defines me. I love Metal Gear, donít get me wrong. But as a creator, I really want to work on other projects, including new games. We want to do new things, things that nobody else has done before, so even if I keep producing Metal Gear games, I want to have something else apart from Metal Gear that pushes the boundaries."
It's not failure, Mr. Kojima, as long as you do not give up. You can, and should, pursue other projects and leave Metal Gear behind. With that said, I think this is an appropriate time for me to announce my retirement from The Snake Soup. It's been a nice run, but I got better things to do like make coffee. This has always been a hobby of mine and it's stopped being fun. I'll still have a limited role here because, after all, I own this place!
