GTA V has made Kojima a little depressed

1 min read


By now, I’m sure you’ve all watched that pretty incredible GTA V trailer. I’ve had little to no interest in GTA since the fourth one disappointed me by being too much of an “annoying friends” simulator with too much focus on realism and not enough focus on fun – but after that trailer, I can say that I’ve happily boarded the hype train. You know who else found the trailer impressive? Hideo Kojima. So much so, that it’s made the fellow a little unsure of his own abilities as a game designer.

"GTA V" new trailer was awesome! This free control is future of the game, way higher than anywhere, makes me depress as matter fact.(cont..)


He seems to think his next-generation game appended with a V won’t be quite as good, and that Rockstar is the premier game developer on the planet.

That’s very humble of you, Mr Kojima – but there’s really no need to put yourself down like that. I’m sure your game is going to be just fine.

Here are both trailers. What do you think? Has Kojima been outclassed?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
