Kojima: sometimes they say I’m crazy

As a creator, Kojima isn’t afraid of doing things differently, or coming up with ideas that were previously unheard of, or at least very uncommon. From what we have heard him say in past interviews, he intends to do something unique with his current creation, Death Stranding, as well. On Twitter, he commented on how trying to do something people can’t really imagine yet can be difficult at times.


“The creation is lonely. You need to have the enormous energy to give birth to what you want to create satisfactory. However, sometimes there’s only few can support to what no one ever seen before, nor imagine before the completion. Sometimes they say I’m crazy. So I watch the “Making Of” the films and acknowledge that I am not alone.”

In an interview held in 2014 Kojima made a similar comment, saying how you sometimes have to make it work on your own when people don’t grasp what you’re trying to do.

    The story progresses partly thanks to crazy. Some brothers wanted to fly and they did. Others thought that the earth was not flat and even they dared to cross the ocean. And another thought that video games could be serious, could become art

    You ain’t mad but Nicolas Winding Refn is FUCKING INZANE WITH A Z

      OMFG. Batgirl? Nicolas Winding Refn? Whaaatt? That would be too good. Drive is my favourite film of all time, so yeah.

      People thinking he is crazy in the wrong way are cowards that usually can’t have their own opinions and are just following the ones of the next cowards.

      Real Art is crazy !

    • JJBYACHFullOptions2FucKonami

      All true geniuses are at least somewhat crazy.

    Kojima-san is one of a kind developer, I wonder what crazy things he try to add into DS :D. Being crazy or just above others in creative thinking, enables him to develop unique masterpieces of art. But the path there sure must be lonely sometimes, because others or not many can understand what he wants to accomplish :(.

    • Leguywhodrownedquiet

      Gatsu is back xD

      • Gatsu

        Hell yes ;D !

  • PrinceHeir

    We need more crazy people like you Kojima-san 🙂

  • Biggy

    Keep being like that!!
    It’s made me happy

  • Gentleman Gamer

    I would agree that he is crazy; not insane though, crazy in a good way. If most creative geniuses thought the same way the rest of us did, we wouldn’t have most of the amazing things we have today, and Kojima is certainly one of them. So yes, I’d call him crazy, but us fans wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

    Crazy enough to throw at waste the history of MGS5
