Hideo Kojima is the developer I hate the most

Japan is known for a lot in the Western world, especially on the internet, rape, being nuked, and cartoon drawings of girls of a questionable looking age. All these things resonate with the Western culture, indeed it is even difficult to go to a forum where teenage boys exist that don't have badly drawn anime girls, dressed like some sort of space prostitute. One such Japanese inspired creation also predominant with young adults, is Metal Gear Solid.

To many, Metal Gear Solid represents the pinnacle of gaming, unrivaled story, that is expertly crafting by Hideo Kojima, the creative mastermind behind the series. Indeed these young adults tend to be quite passionate about it, obnoxiously so.

Hero

I have taken it upon myself to create this blog, demonstrating a small part of the depth, the complexity of writing and thought put into Metal Gear Solid, my ultimate hope through this, is that we all gain a better insight not only into Metal Gear Solid but the thought provoking Hideo Kojima himself. Given this is a huge undertaking and due to his genius, which is very, very large in nature.I will put it in comprehensible terms, for those who may not have necessarily played through the masterpieces like me by simply taking a segment, as opposed to attempting to examine it on a whole.

We will start off with Metal Gear Solid 3.

The selected clip is taken as the example.

The opening explained We have ran into a few snags, these guys were after Sokolov too apparently they were taking orders from a grue colonel named Vulgin.

We have established people are after him, in particular someone named Volgin.

Boss walks out with two boxes, drops one and nearly knocks Sokolov off the bridge, she does this twice. We have established she is bad. She explains Sokolov comes with me.

We have established she wants Sokolov with ill intent.

She is surrounded by bee's. which proceed irritate snake and take Sokolov, she looks up at the helicopter explaining my friends, let us fight together again.

he has ill intent, not only wants Sokolov, but has now taken him by force with an unknown party she called friends who she will fight alongside.

She addresses colonel Volgin i.e. the bad fellow after him calmly retorting... Welcome to my country, and to my unit!

We have now established, ill intent, wanting and taking Sokolov by force with unknown comrades we now know is colonel Volgins unit (to which the boss and the Cobra unit are now apart of, obviously).

Boss, what is this? Snake retorts, while dribbling.

I'm defecting to the Soviet union you absolute fucking retard she replies explaining she is GIVING Volgin nuclear warheads.

After picking up the warheads Volgin asks Are we talking him with us? to Which she replies No.

Super secret well written non-retard logical man snake retorts What are you talking about?

She attacks him, breaks his gun then proceeded to break his arm.

Afterwords.... Volgin explains he's seen my face, we can't let him live... he must die to which The Boss explains she will take care of him.

She puts out her hand in friendship hoping Snake will be badly written enough to take it... Ignoring the fact she has defected, taken Sokolov forcefully without permission, joined Volgin, gave him nukes, broke his arm, and implied she will kill him for Volgan.

Thankfully, Snake realizes this is dumb and runs away, as he doesn't want thrown off a bridge, the game gets canceled due to obvious mediocrity, and Hideo Kojima shoots himself in the mouth.

Another example, Metal Gear Solid.

Revolver Ocelot (Revolver Ocelot)

1. We are introduced to Special Operations Fox Hound (REVOLVER) Ocelot. (REVOLVER) himself refers to himself as (REVOLVER).

2. (REVOLVER) has a gun, it's a (REVOLVER).

3. (REVOLVER) explains while skillfully flicking his (REVOLVER) around, that his (REVOLVER), is the greatest handgun ever made, Six Bullets, more than enough to Kill Anything that moves.

4. After (REVOLVER) introducing himself as (REVOLVER) Ocelot, waving around his (REVOLVER) and explaining why his (REVOLVER) is the greatest handgun ever made, (REVOLVER) explains... that he will show you why they call (REVOLVER), (REVOLVER).

Shakespearean

A lot of games have terrible writing and story. Anybody who plays video games can tell you this fact. What annoys me personally (IMO) is just how smug the games are. How smug the fans are. How smug the gaming media are about without actually being objective (like me). As a young fellow I recall playing titles like Homeworld and Planescape Torment. Superior titles with superior writing and story-telling. Homeworld, sadly, has been all but forgotten. I have to sit on many gaming forums listening to 15 year olds and reading nonsense with IGN and gamespot claiming these games are masterpieces of the medium. When many aspects (particularly this Metal Gear Solid 4) are terrible. Encurage these younger gamers to ignore this nonsense and purchase Planescape Torment from GOG.com or hunt amazon for Homeworld I feel gaming would improve. Even if only for a little bit, it will be worth it.

Nanking was not really ethnic cleansing. Nor did it have any real ideology beyond people taking advantage of the weak. Also, many Japanese (not just the goverment) deny it as it is considered shameful.

Again, it is relevant and frequently brought up modern society. This is not argument. It is a fact. So please, stop. You are wrong. End of story.

OP says MGS games have bad writings.

@whyareyoucrouchingspock: Japan is not known for rape. I'm not trying to deny the relevance of Nanking, but it is not something everybody thinks about when thinking about Japan. You may think about Nanking when thinking about Japan, but that doesn't make everybody else relates Japan to rape.
Also, the Metal Gear Solid games are poorly-written, they have a lot of flaws, and yet some people love it. What are you going to do?

Wow. I am stunned and saddened to see such a gross generalization of Japanese culture. That may be how YOU perceive Japanese culture but it's not how I see it. So much of this opening don't even make sense. All these things (meaning "rape, being nuked, and cartoon drawings of girls of a questionable looking age") "resonate" with the Western culture? I feel pretty safe in saying that rape, nuclear warfare, and pederasty have not resonated with myself or the people I know in the Western world. In fact, I'd say they're universally denounced. Also, I'd like to point out that you seem to have a very narrow view of Japanese culture. If you only expose yourself to a small segment of Japan as represented in hentai and what dudes post on gaming sites then, sure, I could see how one would have that view. My problem with what you wrote has nothing to do with something as trivial as Metal Gear Solid. That's just a video game, who cares?

@Svenzon said:

Kojima is a terrible writer, yes. But I'd rather play MGS3 again than torment myself with Planescape.

Not really, Honestly Kojima is a pretty damn good writer. Hell, MGS has a great storyline to it and it does take a good writer to do that.

I do think however that he is a FAR better writer than the likes of Stephen King... (Hideo makes awesome endings. King just makes endings which piss you off.)

Yes, because mass rape is constantly brought up in everyday conversation.  I wish I had your people skills.

Metal gear is awesome. You just butt hurt even though you show you've got all the 'Jelly' in the world needed.

Posted by Gravier251

I certainly don't hate Kojima, though I do feel his writing is perhaps over-rated. Seems to lack any sort of editorial process launching into strange tangents about numerous things at critical moments. Like "Metal Gear Rex has a nuke! Lets launch into some slight commentary on Otaku culture". A lot of the content feels like extraneous pseudo-intellectual babble that could be made a lot more precise and relevent.

But then it is quirky and crazy which is amusing/endearing in parts in it's own way. I like metal gear solid, but at the same time aspects of it annoy me. I think it is kind of over-rated, but it is still alright.
