MGSV wins two awards at TGA 2015, Hideo Kojima was not allowed to attend

At the Game Awards 2015, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has received two awards, one for Best Soundtrack and one for Best Action Adventure Game (the overall game of the year award went to The Witcher 3). Kiefer Sutherland was invited on stage to accept the award for Best Action Adventure Game.

“On behalf of Hideo Kojima and everyone who worked on the game I will accept this reward and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. On a personal note I just want to say that you guys are the most devoted fans I have ever seen. It doesn’t matter whether it seems to be the premiere of 24 or the opening of a film, the only thing I seem to ever sing are posters of Snake from Metal Gear Solid. You guys rock, have a great night!”

The-Game-Awards-2015-Kiefer-Sutherland Unfortunately Hideo Kojima himself was not present at the show to accept the awards, because Konami prohibited him from doing so. Geoff Keighley explained: “As you noticed Hideo Kojima is not here with is tonight, and I want to tell you a little bit about that. Mr Kojima had every intention to be here with us tonight, but unfortunately he was informed by a lawyer representing Konami just recently that he would not be allowed to travel to tonight’s award ceremony to accept any awards. He’s still under an employment contract and it’s disappointing and it’s inconceivable to me that an artist like Hideo would not be allowed to come here and celebrate with his peers, and his teammates such an incredible game as Metal Gear Solid V. But that’s the situation we’re in. Hideo is in Tokyo right now watching the show, so we want you to know, Hideo, that we’re thinking of you and we miss you. We hope to see you at The Game Awards 2016.”

There was a surprise for Kojima though: Stefanie Joosten stepped on stage to perform Quiet’s Theme live.

Afterwards Geoff Keighley announced Metal Gear Solid V one the Best Soundtrack award as well.

    Congratulations to KP. I’m very happy for the soundtrack award, it deserved that!

    • FMercenary

      Kinda odd that the soundtrack award didn’t get a formal announcement though.

      • SNKtheStampede

        True

    • Alex

      I’m kinda disapointed Donna, Ludwig and Stephanie didn’t get to accept that award on the stage; I’m sure they would’ve said some amazing things. But I guess we can’t have everything; many of the awards couldn’t be shown and they did squeeze in that Quiet performance last minute into their two hour show, so I’m grateful for that. I think they chose Quiet’s theme because its shorter than Sins of the Father.

    THyX for the MG concentrate.
    I can’t believe they destroyed Metal Gear like that. All this tells so much about which situation Hideo finally was all these months. Poor mate. Can you imagine that ? What bunch of .ssholes.

  • Ardens Anima

    No matter what one complains about TPP, there is one thing for sure that was amazing, and that was the soundtrack.

  • Mr.Pony

    Grats Kojima-san and co-workers for the great rewards 😀 well deserved! Was awesome to see Kiefer accept it, he rocks and Stefanie performing her theme was beautiful. It made me cry when Kojima-San wasn’t there….

    Fuck you Konami, how can you not let the MG creator visit LA to accept the award!? Have some fcking respect goddamit :(….

      The whole thing is so stupid, I can still not manage to fully realize it… 🙁

      • Gatsu

        It makes me mad, which is rare but….it don’t make any sense. It’s just a short visit to celebrate his game, in the meantime Konami ppl accepting MGSV awards while they keep Kojima locked up in prison cell :(.

        I wanna see him live lol and moving, to know he’s still alive. Last time I saw Kojima was maybe in in Gamescom 2014…ffs. :C

        • Mr.Pony

          Now what i really want is the interview with Kojima so we know what in Metal Gears name happened at that company

          • FMercenary

            Yes, I’ve been patiently waiting for some official statement from him that it’s starting to feel unsettling now.

          • glitchbomb

            I assume there is only so much he can legally say regarding the situation. He also seems rather polite so we may hear a little about everything from his p.o.v but unfortunately I don’t think we will get the low down dirty truth we all want to hear.

        • Full Options

          Besides, this is really toxic because the audience is statistically highly composed of childrens. 🙁 It is a disaster.
          What a public relation message (at VGA BTW) ! World has gone that crazy that we let a corporate speak to kids through lawyers ?
          To teach them what ? That a great artist can not receive the prize he deserve ? Is that the highly philosophical message they want to spread ?
          Is that how they use our money ?
          I am f.ckn so mad at them, it all gives me the worst nausea.

          Poor Hideo, can you imagine in which distress he his for all those crappy months now ? He was so gagged that he could not even ask us for encouraging him.

    “Mr Kojima had every intention to be here with us tonight, but unfortunately he was informed by a lawyer representing Konami just recently that he would not be allowed to travel to tonight’s award ceremony to accept any awards.”

    Pitiful and shameful.

  • Really, it makes no sense. Whoever from Konami came up with this idea to now allow Kojima to accept the rewards is out his mind. The attention could have gotten towards the game, a game published by Konami, honored at this big award show. But now, all the attention goes towards this ridiculous, petty move, and their almost non-existent reputation has been further burned to the ground.

      You are right Nyx, it’s hard even just commenting on this thing. Totally illogic and unsettling. I can’t even feel hatred towards Konami at this point, just pity for their self-damaging.

  • Guys, does not matter anymore. This is not the time to be angry.
    Important part right now is to help and SUPPORT Hideo Kojima for his future studo and project. Konami is the past. It’s time to move forward. Contract is ending soon and you can’t do something about the situation.

    We all know that Kojima did his best and we all know that he will get all of the awards next time but with a different iP and a good publisher.

    • Gatsu

      I’m sorry for posting like that, but just had to let it out when felt angry. I rarely get angry, but Konami just managed to do it lol.

      I expected to see Kojima-san in the last game show before he leaves Konami :(. But you’re right, what’s done is done, of course I will support the best creator in his future projects :).

    • Let’s hope it’s true that is contract ends this month, and then… he shall be free!

    Maybe Kojima-san can attend TGA next year to accept this award again somehow, so it would go to the right person :P. No bastards to stop him from going there then. Anyway, will be great to hear more of him after December.

    You know what the sad thing is? Kojima is a huge Star Wars fan and if he was allowed to attend this show, he would of received the award from Mark Hamill (ie. Luke Skywalker) ….

    Notice how Geoff was struggling to look straight into the camera lens and was saying “um” a lot when talking about the Kojima/Konami situation. It must of took some balls for him to say the truth in front of everyone. lol

    Good to see MGSV voice actors at the awards show (Troy, Kiefer, Donna, Stefanie), and the MGSV music composer as well. 🙂

    This OST sure is very amazing and I like to listen it a lot recently, glad MGSV won the award :). Need to put it playing to celebrate :D.

    Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 have really good soundtrack too ^_^.

    • They were playing V Has Come To when Kiefer walked on stage. Yeah, great OST.

      • V Has Come To is super powerful. Really liked when Kiefer walked on stage. For a moment I thought that he was like Venom Snake in a suit xD

      • i don’t know which would be the correct way to put this, but to me the game strongest musical side are songs as opposed to… a score? (it’s correct to call it score? i mean the music over the whole game like in past MGS’s) i think that the songs where amazing in the game, but it lacked a bit on the “ambient” music, which is sad because there are a couple of pieces that where amazing but just for a couple of seconds though i think that’s probably because of the game being open world…

      • OcelotSilver

        I legitly got chills when that was playing while Kiefer walked towards the stage.

          So did I. V’s sound track brought such a “volume” to the whole ceremony.

        Intense moment. Kiefer looks so proud, honored and respectful to the fans.

  • Gatsu

    By the way brothers, what’s your favorite part in MGSV? I thought for long time it would be the beginning of TPP and it was some of the best I have seen. But it came later in the game. One of the best and most emotional stuff I have experienced in games for me was this whole mission, but more precisely the later part. I cried when I played through this, and not many games do that to me anymore ;). There has been few before, like MGS3 and MGS4.

    https://youtu.be/a2kVJrlaHuA?t=738
    The song starting at 12:38 is so beautiful…that combined with the moment when Snake falls down , what a powerful moment. Then the cremation with Snake’s speech, OMG! I need to go play again :D. So many epic scenes in this game…

    • Mr.Pony

      Heavens divide playing on that last room and all the soldiers saluting you “The Boss is here, he’ll know what to do!”. The heartbreaking moment of the game.

          • Lewis

            Oh, man. Don’t mention Emmerich in that moment. I fucking hate him. With cold hate. He is the biggest hypocrite in video games for me. He didn’t pity the soldiers, he was afraid for himself. He knew Snake was not going to let such big tragedy go unnoticed. And with him being the cause of that leak, that weak fucker just tried to make Venom guilty. “They were your own men!”. Okay, mister smarty pants, lets get them outside, warm air, sun…oh, the whole world dead. Fuck I hate that piece of shit. I was so fucking angry with him, that I wanted his trial to feature a controlled decision whether to shoot him or not. And if I shoot him, make it a paradox like in MGS3 and rewind. I would pull the trigger about 100 times before I let him sail away.

            There was only one person in my entire media, whom I hated and despised that much. I always sympathize with villains and bad guys, but that fucker drove me insane. It was Scythe Master from Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ anime, when he took a little good girl, who was a friend of protagonist, and turned her into a psychotic killer. These two fuckers are the only men who earned my loathing.

          • Gatsu

            Sorry :D… I wasn’t trying to defend him, I guess I just used wrong words. I found Kaz’s respond funny and bit cold that’s all, like “stfu Huey!” lol.

            But Huey deserve it, he caused so much damage.

            I started watching that anime yesterday :), I hope it’s good to the end.

          • Lewis

            Oh, sorry, man! I wasn’t angry at you for anything, I just can’t control myself, when it comes to Huey in MGSV. Sorry, if I offended you.

            And double sorry for that tiny spoiler! I really loved Phantom, but it is really dark. My friend gave it 8/10, and when I asked why so low, he said something like “man, they like take cute little rabbits and murder them in front of you” (a metaphor ofc, I really lose my shit at violance to animals). But I like dark and “grown-up” anime without little boys and girls with flashy superpowers saving the world. The last third is a bit underwhelming, but the ending hits you like a brick of stone. So I hope you like it, tell me here when you finish ^^

          • Gatsu

            Np you didn’t offend ;), I’m sure you aren’t the only one who can’t control emotions when talk of him xD.

            Yeah looking forward to watch every episode :D, I only watched 1 so far. I love dark and grown up anime too. Such tiny spoiler don’t bother me.

    • vic boss

      That also the ending of paz, that one really got to me. It was idk like having something back again and then losing it forever.

      • Gatsu

        Aye, I love that part too :D, was quite mindblowing. The escape from Sahelanthropus is some of the coolest stuff I’ve seen too, Kojima really did wonders with the cutscenes imo.

        • vic boss

          I wonder if that stuff with PAZ was real or of it was just in his mind. But either way it was shocking to watch

          • Allie

            it was all in his mind. some of the photos you get show things that never happened and could not have happened like Galvez playing the theremin, as galvez wasn’t on mother base until after he was revealed to be Zadornov

        • Spectralbuttplug

          THE PAZ ENDING MADE ME SCREAM

    • i love the part when we play as the real big boss, we create outer heaven and have some cool boss fight with skull face and that other final mission with the last boss, such an epic fight, i can’t decide over all those moments…. wait…. that never happened XD lol, just kidding.

      all the first chapter is very good story wise, and i would also say that the gameplay is so good that it even competes with the story for a “best moment” choice. there where some missions that where really tense (usually when you have to save a lot of prisoners) and i loved that. as pony says that last room from that mission was probably the most heartbreaking moment, i remember it shook me up a bit, though the mission loses a bit of significance after the game’s final twist IMO.

      • Gatsu

        LOL, I started reading your comment and was for a while like… what the hell you saying xD, MGSV wasn’t like that to me lol XD.

    • Mr. Sir Shpee

      43 is the most emotionally taxing moment in the game, imo. Paz’ ending and A Quiet Exit were tough as well. The scene in Blood Runs Deep when he records the audio for the contract was rather tense and had me on edge.

      As far as my favorite moment in terms of gameplay, it was when I played Where Do The Bees Sleep? A massive mission AO made the game feel like it really opened up. Being in a new sprawling part of the map with the Mountain Relay Base leading up to the huge Da Smasei Laman outpost was amazing.

      • Gatsu

        That mission 6 is superb, I love it for the length also. For first time it took me about 2 hours to complete :). What makes it even better is that epic encounter at the end, fighting the Skulls is amazing imo. Gives this constant thrill, when gotta keep moving ’cause they’re so fast.

        So many good moments ;).

        • Mr. Sir Shpee

          Yeah, that was an hour long mission for me. The game REALLY opened up at that point and felt absolutely massive. The surprise SKULLS were nice too.

          I knew I forgot something. Hellbound, White Mamba, Code Talker, Skull Face, all were wonderful.

        • Spectralbuttplug

          I PLAYED HELLBOUND WITH MY COUSIN.HE BEGGED ME TO NOT USE THE CHICKEN HAT.I STILL USED IT LOL

          • Gatsu

            I used it for first time when replaying mission 6 this week, lol. I wanted to try it xD.

          • Spectralbuttplug

            I used it for the first time there.When I went to smasei layman.I just GTFO of there when I saw skulls.KAZ said GTFO in mission 20 which is the series third f bomb

      @MrVux007 – Don’t you read the following before you get home and finish V ;D

      It may sound weird to some, but I felt sitting in front of a real TOP Metal Gear while extracting Huey.
      First of all, I did not really know the base nor the interface and was lucky to try to sneak straight to the correct hangar. Seeing I could not enter from one door, I decided to climb on the roof and saw the windows on the opposite side. Looking through, I saw that Huey was there busy at work. Right there, I sooo felt like “man, I love this franchise”. After getting inside and hearing The Boss, speaking from the AI pod with all those photos stuck on it was just too much pleasure for me.

      So gameplay-wise, it is more about when I really felt in a Metal Gear than the particular mission.

      Besides that and regarding the story, Quiet sniping the jet fighter pilot was also really intense for me. But there are sooo many fancy moments. For example, when Quiet sacrificed herself to get the kid’s pendant, under Snake’s eyes, completely going crazy about his endangered love… Just Fantastic…

    Uuum Guys? isnt it obvious by now that its all a ruse? i mean if you cool your head everything seems so weird the whole thing doesnt hold any water to begin with. All i know is that Metal Gear Solid 6 is coming and i really mean it.

    • FoxTamerMGO

      I’ll be skeptical until he’s 100% fired from konami..

    • Gatsu

      Nope… They wouldn’t go this far imo. I dont think its part of any ruse anymore, just because he has fooled fans in the past.

      I’m amazed some still believe that, after all this time. I already accepted the truth that Konami CEOs are a bunch of dicks.

      If it would be part of some ruse, well I wouldn’t see much problem for letting Kojima to enter a stage after 16 months to say few words.

      • Yeah. What would Konami have to gain by this PR disaster? They are probably the most hated company in gaming right now, how does that benefit them?

        • Mr.Pony

          As for the PR disaster, there might be some alternative explanation, which is Konami prevented Kojima to attend the awards, so that maybe he wouldn’t say anything about what is going on at Konami. They were maybe hopping to get Kojima to use some excuse for not attending, and unfortunately, for Konami, that strategy completely backfired.

          • When will they realize this strategy isn’t working?

          • Mr.Pony

  • Venom_Sina

    Congrats to KJP staff for these awards.
    What is this stupid decision?Who made this decision?They should’ve let Kojima to go there and accept his award.Right now,they shot themselves in the balls imo.If you look at the comment section of every website,you will see “FUCK KONAMI” at least 5 times.This means people didn’t like your decision,you stupid KONAMI.So fuck you from every angle (sorry,but I had to get it out of my chest,lol.).You know Kojima isn’t really my favorite developer these days (still not fully healed from TPP),but this behavior form KONAMI is unacceptable.Right now,I’m really happy that Kojima will leave this shitty company this month.After that,I want an intreview from Kojima himself to explain what happened in 2015.I hope he finds a good company to work with in the future (I think he already found his place,but he can’t say anything about it because of…you know,security reasons).Can’t wait to see Kojima’s next game.

    • Gatsu

      I know what you mean Sina. I had to let the anger out too lol at below, N4G, youtube, steam etc. .. It takes a lot of work from someone to make me so angry because I rarely behave like that :P, so gz to Konami.

      But I’m calmed down now <(^-^<).

      • Well, this turned out to be the most defining moment of the show, even more so than who won what awards.

        • Gatsu

          Totally agree. Thanks for sharing Nyx ;). I think Geoff had huge courage for what he told us all, it seemed to be difficult to explain why Kojima wasn’t at the show. But he said at it was which required some balls.

          I like how Geoff and Kojima have been buddies for years, would’ve been so awesome to see them together ^^.

          • If all of this is over, maybe Geoff can interview him about what happened and what he’s going to do now.

    • Mr.Pony

      One of the things that I wonder about the awards was, if Konami on any capacity thought that this story wouldn’t get out and was hoping to keep things under wraps, preventing Kojima from attending under any other excuse (basically a strategy to avoid Kojima to say anything about the situation at Konami, which backfired) or if it is indeed the pettiness and low morals that we are all seeing.

      • Gatsu

        They maybe think, that over time we forget all this ever happened. But they’re wrong.

        • Mr.Pony

          Well yes, but from a marketing perspective they are burning a bridge which is the console and PC consumers, and burning bridges is never a good strategy but also they are shifting their focus to mobile, they may say they are not abandoning consoles, sure, they are just putting that whole section in the drawer.

          Having all of that in account, the kind of people that live on the mobile games scene probably don’t care about any of this or even have knowledge of this and that’s what they are going with all these “Fuck this Kojima guy, and screw you players, by the moment we start dangling another Silent Hill or MGS game, you will still come and eat from our hand. And while you are all huffing and puffing we are going over there and build a small empire on mobile games.” This is my take on the affair from a business perspective.

    • Mr.Pony

      Just realized this but since this whole affair with Konami started we have mainly seen anger towards Konami from players and some critics, but now developers are getting into the mix, which lays the question “Who will want to work with Konami now?”. This is starting to look like the last straw for everyone, Konami now is not just a poorly managed company but a toxic one to work with, after this, everyone (developers and studios) that may work on Konami franchises will certainly think twice before either reaching out to Konami to work on their franchises or accept invitations to work on joined projects.

    • Good to see them speak out against this.

      • Venom_Sina

        Yeah,Someone should stand against Konami and inform them about the mess they made and it all went wrong,lol.

        • Too bad they will once again ignore this backlash and act like nothing it happening.

          • Venom_Sina

            Yeah.I was wondering what’s in the mind of Konami’s CEO right now?He thinks they are doing well,I suppose.He should think about this and at least try to get out of this stupidity cocoon.

    • Not expecting much. Apparently this Tidux guy is often wrong.

      • Volf

        tbh after TGA my expectations were crushed so I’m not expecting anything either this time around xD
        What konami did to Mr. Kojima was ridiculous. No respect for art whatsoever

        • He must of banged someone’s wife or something. The whole situation is fucking ridiculous.

          • Volf

            lol couldn’t have said it better myself. Konami’s done

          • But he must not of just banged someone’s wife. He probably had her do things her husband couldn’t. This executive must’ve felt like a total chump. He must’ve walked in on it and Kojima didn’t stop. He probably told him “hang on I’m not finished” and the executive just stood there watching like a cuckold pervert. Then after Kojima finished he slapped her ass and said thank you. Cleaned off his junk with one of the executive kid’s sweaters and left saying “I’ll see you next time baby” there is some serious disrespect going on here.

      You won’t hear anything great until next year… Possibly till the end of 2016. This is the reality of the situation.

      • Gatsu

        Aye…have to maybe wait 1 year to see Kojima attend some event like this…such a long time x_X.

        But I will definitely keep closely following his twitter, especially when December ends.

      • Volf

        Yeah, especially if the rumours about his contract ending in December are true. Can’t wait to see what Kojima’s doing next. Hopefully something to do with Guillermo Del Toro.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        Looks gorgeous and I’m excited to see how the combat and movement change the game since it’s totally different from classic FFVII.

        • Gatsu

          Yeah, there are some old fans complaining about the combat. I’m a fan of turn-based combat, but this looks gorgeous and it’s been almost 20 years since FF7. So imo games should change in that time.

          • Lewis

            Old fans will always complain. A remaster with good graphics? Boooo, can’t do something new, you just want our money! A remake with changes to gameplay? Booo, this is not the game I wanted, you try to sell me something different. When I first saw FF7 remake announcment, I thought to myself: “Wait till they show gameplay, the cancer will be huge.”

    • MrVux007

      i didn’t knew the game is releasing on PC aswell?

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        I’m assuming it is since they said “coming first to PS4”, confirming it is indeed only a timed exclusive. There’d be no reason to bring it to XB1 and not PC, so I’m fairly sure it’ll come.

      To be honest, FF7 still has the best soundtrack ever made to me. Nobuo Uematsu is godlike.

    • kuaikukia

      The thing makes me sad that there is still no official word that they will port to PC.

      • Mr. Sir Shpee

        When they announced the remake they said “coming first to PS4”. That confirms it is not exclusive. I just don’t see it being PS4/XB1 but not PC, considering how many Final Fantasy games they’ve ported to Steam in the last couple of years.

    I’m glad Yakuza 0 is coming. This is the perfect entry for those who haven’t played any of the series yet 🙂

    Also one of the best battles ever 🙂

    All we need is Kiwami(Remake 1) and 6 😀

    Maybe Ishin and Kezan and Black Panther series(doubtful) someday 🙂

    Kuzeee!!

    • Gatsu

      I haven’t played these before, but I really like what I see here <(^o^<) !

      • they are very good! the stories are nice and the overall presentation, pace and direction is very cool, if you like old school beat em ups i’ll really recommend these, it’s a modern take on the genre

    • mhhh i don’t know even though i haven’t played 0 i doesn’t seems as interesting to me, because it’s a prequel and i usually don’t like them because the majority just shove a story on the characters past. i’m more excited for 6! and the remake too,it was a shame there wasn’t an hd version of the first two on ps3, i’ll play 0 anyways some day since Yakuza games always have a nice narrative.

      have you played 0? is it good?
