Kojima May Leave Gaming For Good
Hideo Kojima does not shy away from touching on controversial topics in his games -- lets not forget the background story of Otacons semi-incestuous relationship with his stepmom in Metal Gear Solid 2, even if we want to. But judging by some new Kojima tweets, thatll be nothing compared to what his next game covers.
"The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo. If I mess up, Ill probably have to leave the industry," Kojima wrote on his Twitter account (via Andriasang) about his mysterious new game. "However, I dont want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. Its been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although its just one person. For a start, its good."
So truth be told, we kind of have no idea what hes talking about. But whatever controversial topic Kojimas next game will cover, it seems to be coming along nicely -- he also tweeted earlier this week that all the elements "fit together naturally in my head," including "the title, game design story, characters, configuration, settings, the mechs, casting, the way the graphics will look, sound, beginning and ending, the important dramatic sequences."
And as for having to leave the industry if he fails, dont necessarily take the comment at face value -- this is the man who promised to stop making Metal Gear Solid games about three Metal Gear Solid games ago, after all.
