Hideo Kojima Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

There's no doubt in anyone's minds that this award, regardless of personal gaming preference or bias, is well-deserved.

During the MTV video game awards, they handed out their very first Lifetime Achievement award, and it went to Metal Gear Solid creator and industry visionary, Hideo Kojima. You can watch the full presentation, complete with a MGS homage montage and Ubisoft cutie Jade Raymond. Raymond extols Kojima's efforts over the past decade, and although he has created other titles like Policenauts, she appropriately focuses on the legendary MGS franchise. Kojima then goes to accept his award and the first thing he says after saying he's "honored," is that he has absolutely no intention of retiring. Many times, when a lifetime achievement award is handed out, it's well after the person's body of work is behind them, but I think we all know that Kojima has many more years of creativity and imagination within him. In many ways, this award might even be premature; Kojima is certainly deserving and what he has accomplished in such a short span of time is incredible, but imagine what the future holds...  The fifth Metal Gear has been rumored to be in development, and we can't wait to hear about it.

He adds: "I will continue to create games as long as I live." ...that may be the most comforting statement we've heard all year.
