      Lmfao zoom zoom. Hideo Kojima is a literal genius. He's considered one of the best video game directors of all time. Cope.

      He likes making games. He's answered this question many times. Early in his career he just saw games as a way to bring his filmic visions to life, but in the process he actually fell in love with game design because you can tell interactive stories with more of a 4th wall meta sort of quality with games.

      Real answer?

      He's too creative for the film industry. It would be too easy for him.

      How does it work? Is there a Japanese version, which then an actor reads an English version for? Who is playing La Creativdad?

        yea there are 2 versions. The english one has his voice in the background but its mostly voiced by some guy I dont know and the host is some robot lady. I'd prefer to hear it subbed but I listen to these while hiking or driving.

    The reason we play video games is to experience what we can't in real life.
    The core gameplay of Death Stranding is to carry cargo from point A to point B.
    You do this every day of your life.
    Don't walk blindly into bumpy and jagged rocks. Steep hills are tiring. You knew this as a child.
    Why is a walking simulator acceptable for a AAA game?

    There is a planning phase which is made redundant due to the strand system. Why would I bother bringing a ladder and rope if it's already there?
    The traversal is brain dead easy. If you can hike in real life, you can hike in Death Stranding.
    The combat is dull, boring, and frustrating.
    Being stuck in the mud is the opposite of fun.
    The boss fight/flight is braindead and boring.
    It's just there to inconvenience you.
    Buildings are reduced to a single motion of placing down a foundation, and then engaging in the mind-numbingly tedious job of dragging the materials to the foundation.
    When you've placed your road, bridge, or zipline - you can then skip the walking and boss fights.
    Have you heard of a game where its main objective was for the game to be skipped?
    The end game then becomes: waiting for Sam to arrive at your new destination, drop your cargo, then get a thank you from the world's most boring NPCs.
    Is this fun to you?
    Is this an actual game?

    Art criticism is subjective.
    But if someone splashes some paint on a blank canvas and calls it art - I'm gonna have to call him out on his bullshit.
    No, it's not some form of high art that only the most enlightened of individuals can understand.
    The world of Death Stranding is empty, save for a number of distribution centers that look identical, and private rooms that also look identical.
    Instead of giving us more cutscenes (the only thing good about this "game"), we are given exposition dumps upon exposition dumps in the form of journal entries.
    The story is unique and fresh. The cutscenes look great.
    But that alone is not what makes a game, a game.

    Death Stranding sucks.
    And Kojima is a hack and a fraud.

    Common responses:
    >You didn't play the game.
    Yes I did.
    >Filtered.
    I'd hope so. Death Stranding is for morons.
    >Walking simulators are a valid game genre. There are others like it.
    Death Stranding is a AAA game with massive hype and marketting surrounding it. But it was never marketted as a walking simulator. Because then interest in the game would vanish.
    I have played smaller, indie walking simulators - and have enjoyed them because they were geniunely relaxing, and had stimulating puzzles to go with it.
    Death Stranding is neither. Kojima drones say both: "It's relaxing!", and "It's not just walking! L-look, there's combat!". You can't have both.
    It's not relaxing, nor are the challenges, actual challenges. The terrain and BTs are merely inconveniences.
    >Well I like it. Why are you raining on my parade?
    It's bullshit that Kojima drones are enabling Kojima to shit out this crap. Walking simulators should be $5 max. Certainly not the full $60 or whatever. Definitely not AAA.
    I'm writing this to those on the fence, those who haven't played Death Stranding yet.
    I'm writing this so they don't get gaslighted into forcing themselves to enjoy a AAA walking simulator.

    He knows he'll get laughed at. At least with games people just go "ah well, it's a Kojima game so it's gonna be WACKY AND WEIRD lol" when in reality it's just his shit writing and narcissism. He was, arguably, always a hack.

    Literally all his best ideas are things that would only work in video games.

    He would be a terrible movie director because it's a much more explored medium and his writing is honestly trash and it would be even more front and center.

      I wonder what aspect of the game Kojima is going to be focused on today. For some reason, it's a bit weird to think about the fact that he's working on a game right now as we talk about him in this thread.
