Kojima wants to be remembered for more than just Metal Gear Solid
Hideo Kojima has said that he wants to leave a more lasting legacy for the games industry than just being 'the Metal Gear guy'.
It is true that his cinematic anti-war parable series has left a huge mark on the games industry but Kojima is unsatisfied with that being the only string to his bow.
He began, "I'm often misinterpreted. I've always said that I want to work on original properties, but Metal Gear offers plenty of benefits. The Fox Engine, for example, took a lot of time and money; we were only able to develop it because it was intended for the next Metal Gear. In the next game, I'm introducing concepts intended for entirely new intellectual properties using the Metal Gear brand."
"I'll admit that I hope my future endeavours are thought of as 'works by Hideo Kojima' rather than from the creator of Metal Gear," Kojima continued. "I haven't really shown the world what else I might be capable of yet. This may sound pretentious, but I don't like being thought of as 'the Metal Gear guy.' There's a lot more I can do."
