Hideo Kojima's Sad Farewell To Metal Gear


It starts slow, and feels a little self-indulgent. But this Metal Gear Solid V debriefing ends with something of a genuine tear-jerker. Sorta like the games themselves.


It’s funny as I was watching this I felt a little frustrated. This 10 minute video was essentially a montage of people telling Hideo Kojima how great he was, interspersed with a few interesting quote from Kojima himself. But it ends with a visit to a family of a long-time Metal Gear Solid fan and suddenly you get a sense of real humility.

This is a great watch.
