Kojima Sparks Debate: Do MGS5, Or Try Something New?

Want one final conversation-starter from the Tokyo Game Show?

All it takes is four words from Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima, which he uttered onstage at the Tokyo Game Show last week: "Maybe, I'll do 5." We all know what he's talking about. In the past, Kojima often said he considered Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP to be "Metal Gear Solid 5," but of course, fans just want another true console installment. Unfortunately, the MGS creator has also said he'll be moving on after completing MGS4 and Peace Walker, and he is indeed working on several new projects. Kojima and Co. may also get started on the long-awated Zone of the Enders 3 at some point. Of course, most avid fans of the critically acclaimed MGS series probably want this guy to get cranking on an official MGS5 but is that really fair...?

He has often stated he wants to try something new, so why not just let him? Isn't this one industry brain who should apply his talents in new projects every now and then? I mean, wouldn't we all benefit? Of course, there's always some danger involved in developing a brand new IP, even if your name is Hideo Kojima. And I don't think anyone wants to see Metal Gear Solid die out permanently; other design teams can pick up the reigns, as happened with Metal Gear Solid: Rising. So, what do you have to say?

I'll buy anything he is personally involved in. Personally, I think he should remake Metal Gear 1 and 2 for PSP or PS3. Either way, what ever he gives us it's sure to be a winner.

No because the game will still have to be designed with DVD limitations and possible lack of an HDD in mind. Not all Xbox's have an HDD. Part of the reason games like God of War III and Uncharted 2 turned out the way they did was because of the they used the HDD and Bluray on combination.

@Marty

FFXIII isnt the best in the series in terms of graphical development. Plus overall content was reduced due to the restrictions of the 360.

MGS4 was the first game to fill an entire 50gb bluray disc.

Kojima is a perfectionist, I doubt he would put a game he was directly involved with, on the 360.

Plus, it's been said, that "IF" they ever do a FFVII remake, it will be with the old team back together that did the original. There's no way they'd give it to anyone else, even if they're as awesome as Kojima.

Personally, I think if you DO risk a new IP, Kojima is the man of the hour.

I mean to be quite honest I really really want to see Kojima sama move on with a new work and maybe even new IP (then again, I wouldn't mind at all if he comes out with ZOE3!)

But honestly I wanted Metal Gear Solid to end after 4: Guns of the Patriots. Peace Walker was awesome and still is awesome with friends - but for god's sake not another one. C'mon when on earth will it be Snake's "FINAL MISSION." "?"

Exactly what everyone else is saying, let the man move on, do ZOE3, then do whatever in the world he wishes to do at that point. Just....come on D= ZoE3 please, give MGS a break for awhile, I mean it's a great series, but it needs time to rest every once in awhile. ZOE2 was the greatest mech game I've ever played, and I can only assume Kojima could make ZOE3 top it without a problem.

Should he move onto something? Of course he should instead of making MGS be a millstone around his neck.

Kojima along with Kojima Productions seem to be a very talent group and its that very talent they should exploit with other things instead of living on a sequel grind as its not good in the long-run.

Now I'm not just about Kojima/Kojima Productions, but also other talented developers out[like Polphony Digital] who's talent have been wasted on nothing but sequels..

This notion that they've wasted their talent is nonsense. Both companies have given us gem after gem, even if they are sequels. It's also done well for them as both have been in business, making money for well over 10 years.

That's not a waste.

No more MGS. No more story to tell. I know Rising isn't truly MGS, but don't make a part 5 unless it is better than a least Snake Eater. The series is classic and will soon become a myth. Don't bust a Halo.

I'm not sure how much MGS Kojima has left in him, but I for one wouldn't mind seeing another MGS spin-off based on some of the other characters Like Raiden was.


Like Meryl, done from her side of the story.

This time though, let's keep it on our PS3, since she deserves to be treated as only the very best console can treat her.

this is a two sided coin, can go either way: either a MGS 5 on ps3 could be a good thing, or sth totally new could be a great thing as well.

the problem is: he should have made the Peace Walker as the MGS5 on PS3, and now he can officially move on to a new project and does not need to get stuck in the regret of not making a MGS5 anymore. so imo, this was a wrong move, i will have to say.

p.s. for the Peace Walker. I personally it could have been the greatest installment of the whole MGS saga -- cuz it talks about the core and the best of the whole MGS games, which are The Boss and Big Boss -- two real and greatest hero and heroine of the entire MGS saga. imo, The Boss is the single greatest heroine of the MGS, and her death at the end is the saddest and most emotional ending I have ever encountered in video gaming, even above the death of Aeris

"Polyphony Digital has earned close to two billion dollars from GT."

The same can be said about someone like George Lucas who have made billions from his Star Wars franchise, however you don't see him pumping out a Star Wars 7,8,9,10, etc. at the behest of fans. Why is this? Its obvioius that he seee his talent/career as a filmmaker beyond his cashcow.

In the end nobody wants to be tied down to a single thing because its obvious that that these individuals see their talents well suited for other things. The comments by Bungies's Brian Jarrad when speaking about their liberation:

http://www.gamesthirst.com/2010/08/24/bungie-says-theres-nothing-holding-us-back-now

Speaking of PD, on many occasions Yamauchi have spoken fondly of wanting to do something that is non-racing/non-GT.

it doesn't have to be without snake. he never died @ the end of 4 did he? the setting could be a nursing home where he sneaks around avoiding the nurses that want to give him meds, and the other staff that's trying to feed him strained peas.

if he was senile enough, he might actually believe he was still in a war zone.

Remake the original MGS on an improved version of the MGS4 engine. I can do without an MGS5. 4 was just a brilliant ending for the series, and really made it feel final. Doing more would definitely kill that feeling of perfection in gaming.

But I say do something new. I could go for a ZotE 3 to see what the clamour on this site is all about, but I'd rather see him try something completely new. And I think a real RPG would be best, but knowing Kojima, and RPGs in general, you'd need to have a PhD to follow the plot. Maybe he could do something akin to Heavy Rain. I'm drooling at the thought of that.

Something new of course, after ZOE, you know this guy can do anything.

Like _______ said, I want him to do survival horror, and it would be nice if we have a horror like Siren Blood Curse but only better.

This gen Siren has to be the scariest but most under-appreciated survival horror.

MGS isnt finished.

Man we have soooooooo much left to go.

I would LOVE to see snake give it another crack. Im sure they could bring him back someway, i mean come on, they made up a way to kill him off in one game, they can make one to bring him back in the next XD

However something tells me that MGS5 would be a prequel.

I believe that Mr. Kojima should do a couple of new projects (new IPs, ZoE3, etc.), and after they succeed (how couldn't they right =D?), then he should pour his energy into MGS5.

If he doesn't want to do MGS5 by then, I don't mind at all, as masterpieces like MGS4 are a dime a dozen; they're not common, and probably will never be. I think it's best to keep it like that.

I love Metal Gear, being one of my favourite game series of all time, but come on MGS4 was a conclusion, don't bust it open for a pointless sequel.

I'm sure Kojima has looked at his options and interests in new projects and have decided that nothing else is all that interesting to him (in terms of a brand new project). Hence, that's probably the main reason why he's entertaining the prospect of doing MGS 5.

People who keep saying "another MGS sequel will be too much, there is nothing left to tell" I think your giving Kojima too little credit. If anyone can run a series continueously without running it into the ground, it's this guy.

Hideo - Do something different, you've already crushed em with the MGS franchise. Can you now top that? Or is that the max to your talent?

If he wants to branch out then mayb he should do a new IP in between his AAA titles... Like do a new ZOE,NEW IP,MGS5,NEW IP,ETC... That way he keeps his fanbase happy while exploring new ideas and games

I want the series to move on. I don't even want Rising to exist. I'm sure he has so many great things he'd love to explore and experiment with.

I dont want to feel bad, but like Dr Ock said in spiderman 2... intelligence is a gift for the good of manking.
kojima, if your reading this, your brilliant. you deserve to move on if you want.

I would want an MGS5 and with this guy, it wouldn't fail, but what would it be like. snakes story is over isn't it...

Hard to choose ... MGS would be a great game of course ... but remember this is MR.KOJIMA after all .. so if he makes a new project i thing he means new "genre" ... a whole new experiment ...

Even though I'm a giant Metal Gear Solid fan, I don't really want to see the series stretched out further so it can actually get started to be considered to be 'Milked'. MGS5 doesn't need to happen because really, Solid Snakes' story ended and we understand what happened with Big Boss from MGS3 and what happened BEFORE Metal Gear on the MSX.

The only ACTUAL things that could be done in the MGS series before it's put to rest is a Metal Gear 1 and 2 COMPLETE Remake on the PS3 w/ Solid Snakes' first mission invading Zanzibar Land and Outer Haven, which of course, meeting and fighting Big Boss with the visuals of todays consoles. WOULD BE EPIC AS SHIT!!

As well as if there is perhaps a story to contribute more to The Boss BEFORE, MGS3, while The Boss was teaching Jack and what things happened, if anything at all interesting of course. MGS Peace Walker told a pretty deeply-connected story to contribute to The Boss but who knows what more they could do, I was addicted to playing MGS Peace Walker, but I wasn't satisfied with the ending unfortunately.

I say let the man work on whatever he wants. We all know pretty much anything he does will be awesome, I bet he's got some great ideas that would get pushed back if he's pressured into making another MGS.
