He was asked if the future of Metal Gear was heading towards an open world concept since each of the games allow players more and more freedom withe each new installment. Kojima responded by saying this:

    This is the kind of thing developers usually fail at. Knowing this franchise though, they most likely will deliver and well.

    Seeing the stories Kojima can deliver, maybe it's best to leave it in the player's hands.

    I remember years ago when he spoke of an idea using the internet as a codec so you would dial a random number and in turn be in touch with a random player, you could then ask the random person for help/assistance and of course it could be hit or miss, I thought it was a random but good idea. Some of his other ideas are just as wacky...anyone hear how he wanted to paint the disc of Snatcher with a substance that smells like blood so as the disc got warmer, he would guess by the time you found a certain corpse you would get the smell of blood in your room and build a great atmosphere for it. Of course his boss felt the idea a tad too wacky

    Your room would smell like you hoard used tampons. NO.

    At least Kojima doesn't have to resort to "time travel, incarnations of the lead character and parallel dimensions" like the writers of some other franchise. :creep:

    Some of them do. Others... eh, "not so much" is a bit of an understatement in that regard.

    By "some of them" we mean MGS, MGS3, and Peace Walker.

    MGS stories range from "odd but great" to "makes no fucking sense". Kojima is like a painter. You can tell when he's been using drugs and painting and when he's had his sad outs of withdrawal in which he expresses his true feelings in great masterworks.
