Kojima: I Haven't Shown The World What I Might Be Capable Of
You know, Hideo, if you're going to be known for something, you could do a lot worse than Metal Gear Solid.
In a recent EGM interview, the MGS guru said he believes he has a lot more to offer, and doesn't want to be known only as the "Metal Gear creator."
"I'll admit that I hope my future endeavors are thought of as 'works by Hideo Kojima' rather than 'from the creator of Metal Gear. I haven't really shown the world what else I might be capable of yet. This may sound pretentious, but I don't like being thought of as 'the Metal Gear guy.' There's a lot more I can do."
Of course, it's not that Kojima isn't proud of MGS and he intends to use the franchise as a gateway to new projects, saying- "I'm introducing concepts intended for entirely new intellectual properties using the Metal Gear brand." We'd definitely be interested in seeing what this guy could create outside the realm of MGS, although we never want the esteemed series to disappear entirely. And it probably won't.
