Kojima Likens Metal Gear Solid to the Olympics

Posted By | On 28th, Jul. 2012 Under News

Count on Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima to know what to say. As we lead up to the 25th Annivesary of the Metal Gear franchise, Kojima tweeted about how Metal Gear Solid series resembles the recently inaugurated London Olympics.

When asked what the MGS series is to you, I once responded, ‘It’s like the Olympics.’ A big event held every three or four years. You devote your life to the major goal of a fight on the world stage. You think of nothing beyond that. The latter half becomes difficult, and you think that you’ll retire after this. But after release, you think about the next tournament.

Think about it: All these years after Metal Gear Solid 4, who’s release was arguably the biggest event of 2008, we’re still awaiting the next Metal Gear Solid.

Even after everything was resolved with a big bow on top, we still want, nay crave more.

Thanks, Kojima.

    Metal gear solid Peace Walker was 2010. So were not still waiting for the game after MGS 4.

      mgs4’s marketing and publicity was massive compared to peace walker, so yes, mgs5 should be the next major ‘metal gear solid’ game after mgs4.

      Marketing and Publicity doesn’t change the fact that Peace Walker is a CANON game in the Metal Gear Franchise. Peace Walker had the full MGS4 team working on it [feel free to look it up]. Peace Walker WAS the next MGS. Being portable doesn’t change that. Marketing and Publicity wasn’t any different, the game just got less attention over here due to the PSP not being so popular compared to Japan. Also its in the HD collection for consoles. It is a legitimate chapter in the MG Saga and can’t be skipped because of the lack of a number. MGS PW was originally MGS5. You can look that up too, it dropped the name because Kojima wanted 5 to be a console, next/current gen game.
