When looking for a comparison to the MMA world for Hideo Kojima, it isn’t easy. Comparisons usually give unreal expectations to people and aren’t fair for anyone but they are fun in the way pointless lists are fun. So if I had a gun to my head, which I do, I’d say the MMA comparison to Hideo Kojima would be Genki Sudo. They are both very different from the rest of the visionaries in their respected fields. They don’t always succeed in the traditional sense, Genki Sudo was never the best fighter but he’d always leave you entertained, whether it was his stuff in the ring or tje theatrics before it. You never walked away from a Genki Sudo fight without enjoying something about it. I’ve always felt the same way with Kojima, some things he did, didn’t work but I enjoyed the effort for doing something that isn’t the norm.
Metal Gear Solid V looks to break away from the norm yet again. As it’s more of a realistic look at prisoner camps, child soldiers and more. It appears gone is the campy nature of past Metal Gear Soild titles.
Ever since the nine minute long trailer for MGS V came out giving us a longer glimpse of what it’ll bring us we’ve known this. And of course the internet being the internet, we now know what MGS V looks like in the world of Grand Theft Auto V. Thank you based god.
