I like the idea that shit idiotic writing is "different" and therefore worth keeping around. Seriously guys. Go defend a Michael Bay or Roland Emmerich movie then, or a Dan Brown novel, because that's the actual vault Kojima is yanking this baloney from.
He's a jackass pretending at being a serious auteur, undermining his own work every step of the way with yet more idiocy. This is a guy that wants to talk about child soldiers while he sticks a sniper chick in a bikini on screen, wants to talk about Guantanamo bay and torture, and does it side by side with Policenauts references, horse stealth, cybercowboys and hiding in cardboard boxes. This is a dude that genuinely thinks he has serious things to say about war and conflict. He doesn't. He has nothing to say about those things. He just farts for hours and hours and hours in HIGH DEFINITION.
You call it "quirky" or "weird". Swery's games are quirky and weird. Kojima's games are just stupid, and I don't understand why people aren't giving him a harder time. He should be better than this now and the only reason he's not getting better is because people keep letting him get away with garbage.
