Greedy or not, I like him less and less as time goes on. I followed him on Twitter and I wanted to lose my mind with all the bullshit he would post pictures of. Unfollowed.

MGS4 is about 12-15 without cut scenes. Closer to 22 hours with cut scenes.

And...no he's not greedy. WTF is wrong with you?

  • 2008: Metal Gear Solid 4: 4 hours of single player gameplay, online where you had no choice but to pay real money for content, even new character slots cost real money.
  • 2014: Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros: A game that can be completed in less than an hour, it was half the price of a normal game but that is still far too expensive.
  • 2015: Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain: There are rumours that the ability to hide under cardboard boxes (a series classic) will be DLC.

1. I definitely had around 7/8 hours of gameplay in my 1st walkthrough of MGS4, let alone the HUGE replayability MGS4 has wich made me complete it 5 times total. So yeah, I had my moneys worth. No complaints from me in that department. Also, if he was that greedy, he would have released MGS4 sooner or later on the 360 and PC, wich never happened.

2. MGS:GZ was aimed at fans of the series that will beat the shit out of it. If you bought it to complete it once and that it, then yeah, it was an overpriced demo. However, if you wanted to see everything GZ had to offer you can bet your ass you'll have 6h of content in that game. GZ has a lot of replayability, but yeah, it could have been a tutorial level in Phantom Pain and not being charged as a stand alone game. I give it Konami was greedy with it.

3. You're basing your assumptions from "rumours". Fail

As a former fan of MGS...and after watching the whole Ground Zeros debate...hell yeah.

Everyone is always hating on Acitivi$ion and Electronic Art$ for how greedy they are, and for good reason, they are as greedy as f*ck.

But Hideo Kojima is as bad, if not worse, yet he gets away with everything because he can coat his cash grabs with storyteling, here are examples of how greedy Kojima is:

  • 2008: Metal Gear Solid 4: 4 hours of single player gameplay, online where you had no choice but to pay real money for content, even new character slots cost real money.
  • 2014: Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros: A game that can be completed in less than an hour, it was half the price of a normal game but that is still far too expensive.
  • 2015: Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain: There are rumours that the ability to hide under cardboard boxes (a series classic) will be DLC.

So who can agree that Hideo Kojima is greedy?

Do not act like everyone speed runs GZ and MGS4. Most of the people who are complaining about GZ have not bought it and could not even beat it that quickly. Also, He is not greedy people just keep buying his products. Blame them.

He's not greedy. He just allows his dipshit fanboys to graze his abhorrently bad writing and meh game design as they claim it's the best thing to ever happen to video games. He's like a shitty pop singer who gets insanely successful because their braindead fans eat it up.

#58 Posted by BigBoss255 (3538 posts) -

Oh my god.

He's directed only PW and GZ since 2008. MGS4 was one of the most expensive games of last gen, it wasn't a quick smash grab. I never bought any DLC for MGO and I played it just fine. I do agree that GZ is a rip off but MGSV has been in development for four years, Konami most likely want a return on their investment. Kojima isn't the top guy over there, at least blame the right person.

Honestly, four years ago, a trash thread like this would have been deleted within minutes.

no one is forcing anyone to buy those games

I have noticed greed with the MGS series. I have noticed among many others also.

And 8 years ago, multiplayer where content costed real money and even new character slots costed real money in a game with only 4-5 hours of single player content would not be acceptable regardless of storytelling.

You are aware that he was the villain, right?

Also, rumours that cardboard boxes are dlc exclusive? What are these rumors based on?

You seem jealous. You wish you could be Kojima.

All depends on how you look at him. Some would call him a genius.

You do realize that those two things are unrelated, right?

Its not that he is greedy its that he has absolutely no talent hes a one hit wonder and even that was a fluke, MGS was a great game mgs 2 3 and 4, and all the shit released in the last few years were...well shit complete and utter shit.

@lostrib: Your Caesar realizes, citizen, that being jealous of a fictional character's success, like Gordon Gekko, is not healthy for the mind.

strive to create your own success.

carry on

FYI GZ is already five dollars cheaper on amazon for the PS3.

That baby will be $15 in no time. Why don't people just wait?

Yeah so much crap that MGS4 won GOTY. Yeah...and so much crap that the series is beloved. So much crap that MGS3 is beloved for its emotional impactful ending.

So much crap that Konami basically bets the whole farm on this one franchise.

But okay yeah...just a fluke. You're right...

I think he's a hack. The X1 port of his latest game = Weak sauce.

Hell his MGS port to the OG Xbox. Was worse than the PS2 version.

We all know the power differences between those 2 consoles.

Charging 30 bucks for a glorified demo. Loser.

Ah, so I see we're at the point where XboxDone has realized he's been owned so he's going to try and change the subject and deflect with personal insults. I wouldn't be surprised if he then runs away from the thread like a little girl. What a failure.

Carry on
