Those are the words uttered by Kojima Productions' founder Hideo Kojima during a recent video published by BBC Newsbeat, and this comes after Kojima remarked that the company will start making films in the future as well, following on from the release of Death Stranding this week. From everything we've seen of Death Stranding, it seems like this game will also be very cinematic, which is what we all want from Hideo Kojima's games.
Kojima describes the PS4 exclusive as a new genre of "strand" game in which in-game players connect isolated U.S. cities, but also each other by building bridges, ladders and ziplines for other players to find and use. "If a person can do one thing well, then they should be able to do anything well", said Kojima.
"I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming", Kojima said. Moreover, we can even say the long cutscenes in his games are essentially movies themselves, Kojima has yet to make a proper film. Hell, the final "goal" of the Metal Gear Solid series, before Kojima parted ways with Konami, was for players to voluntarily complete a global nuclear armistice, and rid the world of nukes altogether. I'd be a lot more up for Kojima Productions showing me a bunch of nonsense if I was in the mindset for just soaking in a movie.
According to reviews, which have been mixed but largely positive, the story of Death Stranding is a little bit of a jumble.
Which, whatever you make of the game itself, is really nice, actually. This 8-minute trailer was dedicated to the launch of the PS4 version, which is why we didn't bother with it.
For now, Kojima's new game "Death Stranding" seems to be the prime focus though, as the game gets closer to its release date on November 8 for the Playstation 4.
Kojima also goes on to mention that he knows that many gamers are lonely, "Even though they're having fun with others outside when they are alone and playing video games in their living room they don't feel like they fit into society or their community".
