Kojima Regrets MGS4 Cutscenes?

Kojima, as he clarified before, won't be taking the lead on any future Metal Gear projects stating that he'd rather let the younger generation handle it. But knowing Kojima, he might actually come back again to work on MGS5 nonetheless! He has alsosaid before that he won't be working on MGS after MGS2, and then again after MGS3 and now MGS4. He said

"I always intend to stay true to these statements, it's like when Hayao Miyazaki says he is not going to do more, and then always ends up doing it. I have other ideas than Metal Gear, and I want to go on to make other new games, but for political, business, or technology reasons, there is always a time when I have to return."

Kojima also talked about the lengthy cutscenes in MGS4 which many fans (and critics alike) hated so much for removing the player from the experience and rendering the gamer to a watcher seat instead.

"Halo, BioShock -- I see their approach, and I think they are brilliant in some ways, but I still feel they lack a kind of deeper storyline or the expression of the feelings of the characters. In MGS4, yes, I put everything in the cut sequences, which I kind of regret to some extent, because maybe there is a new approach which I should think about. I'm always thinking about it -- making it interactive but at the same time telling the story part and the drama even more emotionally."

So Kojima realizes what went wrong with MGS4. Now it appears that Kojima is traveling to "rival" FPS studios, like Infinity Ward and Guerrilla Games. But Kojima has been known to go to studios of the games he likes, so probably there's nothing there. But maybe his next non-MGS game could be a FPS? Who knows, time will tell. Oh speaking of time, Kojima said that he's busy with MGO right now, but also to expect something new on next year's TGS!

"Until the end of this year, I have my hands full with Metal Gear Online, but at next year's show, I think it's okay that I should be able to announce something."

Kojima expressed earlier at TGS that Japan has lost compared to Western games.

"If you honestly compare Japanese games with Western ones, Japan has lost."

During the talk, Kojima compared the western games industry to Hollywood -- they bring the world's best creators together and give them huge budgets for their projects. He went on to call the current disparity "dangerous," particularly when it comes to how far western technological development has come over the last few years. (via 1up.com)
