Today Hideo Kojima cleaned up at the PlayStation Awards, winning one of each award available. He brought home a User’s Choice Award and a Gold Prize with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and a 20th Anniversary User Choice Award with Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Yet, his eyes are keenly set towards the future. During his acceptance speeches he mentioned that he doesn’t want to disappoint the fans with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and like with Metal Gear Solid 3, he’d like The Phantom Pain to be still loved ten or twenty years from now, adding that he wouldn’t mind winning the award again with it at the 30th anniversary PlayStation Awards ceremony.
From what we’ve seen so far, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain seems really top-notch. I definitely wouldn’t mind to be here in ten years, reporting on Kojima-san’s 30th anniversary prize.
One thing is for sure: he’ll look exactly the same. Kojima-san never ages.
