Most game ideas on Earth are the result of collaborations. Many men and women working together to forge games out of a sea of ideas. Except, that is, for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. That's pretty much all Hideo Kojima.
"Well it's strange, but not so many ideas come from the other staff", the humble boss of a studio bearing his own name told the Official PlayStation Magazine. "Co-op Ring, Love Box - the names and the ideas come from myself".
Something tells us that's a phenomenon not exclusive to Peace Walker. Explains why his games are in such dire need of someone to edit stream of consciousness into something more cohesive, but then I guess it also explains why, in spite of this, people simply adore all things Metal Gear.
