We already suspected that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima had a thing for Ryan Gosling (who doesn't?) after Kojima sported Drive's iconic jacket. But Kojima's admiration for the hunky star is apparently big enough that he'd love to make a game with Gosling in it.

"Place Beyond The Pines". In the long one shot at the begining, Ryan Gosling was sooo cool. Makes me wanna buy a red leather jacket. lol— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) April 29, 2013
I want to do 3D capture Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus and make game with them.— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) April 29, 2013

Place Beyond The Pines is a "motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective," according to IMDb.
One can only imagine what type of game it would be, hypothetically speaking. Since Kojima mainly works on Metal Gear Solid nowadays, I'm picturing Ryan Gosling as a villain who prefaces everything they say with "Hey, girl..."
It's more likely it would be a zombie game though. I'm basing this wholly on the fact that Kojima tweeted this shortly after tweeting so much about Ryan Gosling:
Want to make a genuine zombie game.— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) April 29, 2013
Granted, Gosling isn't the only one Kojima is interested in nabbing for a game:
Also want to 3D capture Masso Michaelsen and Benedict Cumberbatch to make game.— HIDEO_KOJIMA (@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN) April 29, 2013
Zombie game starring Ryan Gosling and Benedict Cumberbatch, made by Hideo Kojima? Now that would be something.
