Kojima? KOJIMAAAAAAA!!!!!! Hideo Kojima’s 8 Favorite Metal Gear Solid Cutscenes

Hideo Kojima, war fetishist, conspiracy theorist, and creator of Metal Gear Solid AND increasingly complex narratives that don’t-quite-pay-off, sits with IGN to talk about his eight favorite cutscenes from the Metal Gear Solid franchise, of which there are roughly 74 hours of.  Tough to narrow down to just eight, I know. Here’s what the man had to say:

MY personal favorite is from what I consider to be the best entry in the series so far, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, when Ocelot & Snake meet for the first time. Not only do you get to see Snake’s badass CQC up close but he also inadvertently gives birth to Revolver Ocelot, a character who’ll dog him (ed.note: ocelot him?) throughout the series.

 

Did You Realize?!

Really doe

That there was a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary party in Tokyo last night?? I certainly didn’t. Luckily I have the Internet, which told me first thing this morning! Kotaku has very handily scooped up all the bits from last night’s event and have them all in one super sneaky mega post. No desire to read a super sneaky mega post? No sweat, they broke it out too:

New Metal Gear Solid game (kind of)

Metal Gear Solid movie

Metal Gear social game (please please please Farmville with stealth kills)

Metal Gear swag to buy  I want that watch! Which watch? This watch:

Yoji Shinkawa’s Metal Gear Solid Art

The soul of the series.
