Kojima says Metal Gear is “like the Olympics. You devote your life and think you’ll retire after”

Hideo Kojima has been getting in the Olympic spirit, likening the production of a Metal Gear Solid game to the sporting event, saying, “You devote your life to the major goal of a fight on the world stage. You think of nothing beyond that”.

The full tweet reads, “When asked what the MGS series is to you, I once responded, ‘It’s like the Olympics.’ A big event held every three or four years. You devote your life to the major goal of a fight on the world stage. You think of nothing beyond that. The latter half becomes difficult, and you think that you’ll retire after this. But after release, you think about the next tournament.”
