Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind theMetal Gear Solidfranchise and visionary behind the series' upcoming fifth installment,The Phantom Pain, is once again depressed by how amazing Rockstar Games' open world is inGrand Theft Auto V.
While he's creating an open-world experience withinMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it apparently doesn't compare toGTA's jaw-dropping California city running on next-gen hardware. Kojima just hopes that because the two experiences are so different, gamers will understand.
"It's a bit different because Rockstar is going in a very different direction to what I'm trying to create," he toldCVG. "When we say we're an open-world game it makes it sound like it's trying to be the same as what those guys are creating. But this is very different - I'm trying to do a free infiltration game.
"What Rockstar has created and the world they have created is super impressive, and actually when I saw the PS4 version a few days ago I got depressed again. And this is not game design-related it's just me. The quality that they showed in the PS4 trailer was really impressive."
