Kojima has been a fan of Rockstar's work for a while. In 2013, he said Grand Theft Auto V looked so impressive that it made him "depressed" because he thought his own project, Metal Gear Solid V, might not be able to have the same impact. "Rockstar's team are the best. Without question they will pull up the possibility of game," Kojima said at the time.

Here at GameSpot, we'll reveal our own list of most anticipated 2017 games later today, December 22.

Red Dead Redemption 2, providing it stays on schedule, is slated to come to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in fall 2017. The game looks gorgeous, but Rockstar hasn't shared any concrete gameplay details yet.

Also in the feature, Kojima revealed that the new Blade Runner film, Blade Runner 2049, is his most anticipated movie for 2017. It stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford--a new teaser video and some images for it were released this week.

Speaking generally about his thoughts on 2016 in gaming, Kojima called out virtual reality.

"2016 was year one for virtual reality," he said. "Screen-viewing culture hadn't changed for about 120 years, so I think the impact of VR will significantly change entertainment, our daily lives, education, culture, and so on. I don't believe this to be only about games."

Kojima's current project is Death Stranding, an intriguing-looking PlayStation 4 game that features Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and Guillermo del Toro.
