    Hideo Kojima: Genius or Crazy

    Every gamer knows who Hideo Kojima is. He created legendary franchises such as Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders. What are your opinions on him. Is he a genius? Or is he crazy?

    Every true genius is at least a little bit crazy. Kojima is a kickass game designer.

    Maybe a little bit of both. Genius and Insanity is fine line.
    I guess you need both to create a great franchise such as Metal Gear Solid.

    I cannot wait for Metal Gear Solid 4 to get release. I saved up all my sick days just for the game.

    A little too much credit for the success in my opinion. But still he's great in what he does and I don't really liked the guy when he "hideo"-ed my television screen while I was fighting Psycho Mantis. And I also didn't appreciate the "fission mailed" when I was fighting the enemy.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I know what you mean Legend, that was very disturbing to see, when fighting a boss. but you can see the genius behind it as well. but the (fission mailed) was so damn annoying that sometimes I would just quit at that point.

    as for Hideo being a genius or insane, I must go with both to a point.
    granted I really enjoy the MGS games and cannot wait for the fourth installment,
    but if something like that happens again. I think I will throw the disc out of my window.

    A fine line indeed.

    I hear that lots of people who are in assylums--not most, but lots--are people who used to be scientists and mathematicians. But that's aside the point.

    I believe that Hideo Kojima is one of the greatest game designers in the history of the business. Metal Gear has been around for as long as I can remember. It's been a success for over a decade. (Maybe over two. I have to do my research. It's been forever since I've actually owned Metal Gear for Nintendo.) I wouldn't call him insane, I would call him a well educated person with a brilliant imagination.

    I love his games and I'm dying to play MGS 4!!! I wonder if another Z.O.E is in the works. Hmm...
