Kojima Depressed (Again) by Grand Theft Auto V

Posted on Wednesday, June 18 @ 05:59:54 PST by Alex_Osborn


Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise and visionary behind the series' upcoming fifth installment, The Phantom Pain, is once again depressed by how amazing Rockstar Games' open world is in Grand Theft Auto V.

While he's creating an open-world experience within Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, it apparently doesn't compare to GTA​'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 told CVG. "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."

If you haven't already seen the PlayStation 4 trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, you can give it a look right here. Be sure to check out the E3 trailer for The Phantom Pain as well.
