If you’re like me, the series of Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid have been apart of your gaming life for over 20 years. Even if you’ve only recently started playing these timeless games, it’s hard to deny that they have a way of drawing you in and leaving a lasting impression upon you.
With that in mind, I must prepare you. The following video can be quite emotional. Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid series has given us a farewell in the form of this video.
He interviews fellow Metal Gear collaborators and even super-fan Greg Miller of Kinda Funny and good friend to GWW. But the singular most touching moment comes toward the end of the video. I think it’s best that you see it for yourself. Enjoy.
While we’ll save our “thank you’s” to Kojima-san for a later day, in a more dedicated article, I’d just like to say that a great deal of the GWW staff have this man and his team to thank for our appreciation and enjoyment of video games. And although his time with Metal Gear Solid is over, I hope that we’ll be saying “thank you” for many more projects in the future.
