Kojima On Why He Will Never Release A Game Like P.T., Doesn’t Want To Look Back At The Konami Drama

“I don’t want to do something that is in the same tone.”

TP Silent Hills PS4

Hideo Kojima is a free man now. He is allowed to do whatever he wants to and is allowed to develop whatever he wants to. He is finally making a non-Metal Gear game, a title that he promises will be big in scale. But one cannot possibly forget with what he achieved with P.T. and forgive Konami for canceling Silent Hills.

In a recent interview with Polygon, Kojima was asked whether he is interested in making a game similar to theme of Silent Hills or P.T., or horror genre in general. Kojima stated that Silent Hills will never happen and although he is interested in exploring the horror genre in the future, he won’t develop a game like P.T.

P.T. in a way for us was also an experiment to understand many things. Silent Hills, I don’t think that will ever happen. I would definitely like to explore horror and by horror I don’t mean horror as a genre, but more like the feeling of terror as a theme, as a topic and this is one aspect that gets really close to interactivity of scariness so that is something I would be interested in exploring in the future.”

“After P.T. there were similar games that were released or were developed. Personally, I don’t want to do something that is in the same tone, I would prefer to do something that takes a different approach and a different perspective to it,” he added.

When asked about how he would explain with what happened with Konami, Kojima stated he would not like to comment on the matter but did mentioned the following.

“To be honest, I don’t want to look back. I just want to move forward.”

    He can do whatever he pleases himself :)))

  • “After P.T. there were similar games that were released or were developed.”

    Yes, Kojima, and there were similar games before that you copied the formula from. Look at this piece of crap trying to take credit for spooky place simulators. This is why I have no respect for Kojima. He steals ideas and then pretends he came up with it.

      Actually I think he is referring to the games that came out that the creators said they were inspired by PT.

      I wasn’t aware Kojima had a trend of stealing ideas and taking credit for it. Feel free to enlighten me.

    • I constantly see people give him credi for how “original” PT was, when it was not. He saw what horror ganes on PC were doing and copied it.

      And we all know Metal Gear wouldn’t exist if not for Snake Plissken and Escape from NY.

      And what was hos other game? Mechs? As if that wasn’t played out at the time too.

      Everything Kojima does is ripped off from someone else.

    • Sean Castillo

      Most of those are tributes, really, and what’s important isn’t necessarily being 100% original; doing something new with a formula already created has its own value.

    • So you would consider simply having more financial backing and name recognition than indie devs that made games similar to PT before Kojima did “doing something new”?

      Kojima fns are delusional.

    • Ryan King

      There is not a single horror game like P.T..Amnesia and other type of first person horror games failed to make same impact as P.T..They are boring and not at all scary.

      P.T is the only game which almost gave people heart attack..it was genuinely one of the most scariest games ever…

    • Everything that happened in PT was a typical horror trope EXCEPT the sink baby, which was lifted from Eraserhead. The only differnce between what PT did and similar games over the years on PC did was have big budget backing and name recognition. That’s it. The only people that hold it in a higher regard are playstation and kojima fanboys. It simply showed why these experiences deserve an actual budget.

    • Sean Castillo

      How am I delusional?

    • Sean Castillo

      I didn’t even so much as MENTION indie devs. Straw Man fallacy.

    • No, I did because PT was ripped off from Indie devs on PC making all kinds of games like PT. Thenonly fifference between PT and that other stuff is graphic quality, and that comes with having your own. Ig money game engine and not bei g an indie. Kojima is a fraud, he just takes other peoples ideas and pretends they are his own.

    • Ryan King

      By your logic..UC games are ripoff of Indiana Jones and old TR games coz UC games involve treasure hunting and platforming and Gears like cover based shooting…Will you bash ND for it?

      TLOU Ripoff of RE4 and all other survivor horror games

      Gears also ripoff of RE4

      MGS taking inspiration from films not games…It’s one thing to take inspiration and other thing to execute it well as a game and make it big multi-million selling franchise…

      Kojima is making games when you were in your diaper…Show some respect.. Taking inspiration doesn’t equal to copying…MGS is quite unique game series.

    • Why do you think Naughty Dog themelves have called UC “Dude Raider”?

      Everything Kojima is praised for was appropriated from someone with acual talent. And he has an ego. A false one because little braindead clones like you are constantly sucking at his teats.

      We have crossed paths before and your thought process and logic are damned near unintelligible. You are ill-informed and in my opinion not qualified to suggest your analysis is accurate or useful..

      Most creative works are derivatives of previous works, remixes if you will. Disney is a huge benefactor to this kind of creative strategy…


      While many of these works are not completely original I don’t think anyone would deny Disney applied their hallmarks to each story, in the process making the story one of their own.

      Kojima basing a character on Plisken isn’t a huge sin because he inserted that character into a unique story which has various influences.

      Your education is a ripoff. 🙂

    • Yes, we have crossed paths before. And you are longwinded, think far too highly of your opinion, and are a raging sony fanboy.

      Not surprising you would gargle Kojimas balls and defend him as you do.

      Your opinion is irrelevant. You are no one. Just another sony fanchild leaping up to defend their precious and it’s friends.

      Go on, shoo.

    • DarthDiggler


      You want to call me long winded, I prefer the term accurate. 🙂

      Sorry if I speak in a manner that goes over your head. I am not very talented with speaking at a sub-middle school level, so you will have to do your best to keep up.

      It is noted that you haven’t actually refuted a word I have said here and instead opted to provide an ad-hominem. I am assuming that is the best you got.

      I can respond in kind, and I don’t always have to be long winded….

      Kindly go choke on your manhood!

      See! 🙂

    • A week later and all you have is more BS painting yourself as better than the comment lurking loser fanboy you are and more hypebole?

      Remove Kojimas tiny little japanese penis from your mouth and go find something better than fanboying to do.

      Then again with the comment count you have and your dedication it is obvious this is your life. SDF forever!

      Sorry but i do agree that kojima steals ideas, names, music and even gamplay mechanics. He stole Snake Pliskin and doesn’t even bother changing the name or eye patch! He loves David Bowie and uses “Diamond Dogs!” Honestly the list goes on forever, but one thing I have to say is what he does with what he steals is genius. Metal Gear Solid 5 is my favourite game of all time so he is forgiven. He is the 2nd best game designer of all time. Only beaten by Shigeru Miyamoto in my opinion.

      I really hope someone in the future will develop a troll filter. you have some serious problems man!

      how can you write such nonsense when everybody knows that Kojima is one of the most creative minds out there. maybe you don’t like his games but to say he copied everything is utter BS!

      have a nice one, troll!

    • DarthDiggler

      He is an intellectual imbecile.
