Hideo Kojima says MGS: Ground Zeroes will be too controversial to sell well
| by Shunal Doke |
The Metal Gear series has been one of the most influential franchises in gaming history, and the games have always pushed the boundaries when it comes to innovation. No one can say the franchise hasn't sold well, but series creator Hideo Kojima recently told VideoGamer that the next game in the series might be too avant-garde to do well.
"Video games as a medium haven't matured very much at all in the last 25 years," said Kojima. "It's always about killing aliens and zombies. Not that I don't like those kinds of games... they are fun, but I think games have a long way to go before they can mature. Over the past 25 year (sic) I have tried to work with the Metal Gear series to introduce more mature themes, but really it hasn't gotten there yet. Compared to movies and books it still has a long way to go."
However, there's still hope as Kojima doesn't sound like he's giving up. "As a creator I want to take that risk. I'm approaching the project as a creator and prioritising creativity over sales," he said.
Ground Zeroes will tackle taboo themes, it seems
