Kojima on the way Quiet was received

One thing that has dominated the gaming news the past few days is the design of Metal Gear Solid V’s character Quiet. News sites, fans, developers, everyone had an opinion. Kojima has noticed the controversy, and commented on Twitter.

“I know there’s people concerning about “Quiet” but don’t worry. I created her character as an antithesis to the women characters appeared in the past fighting game who are excessively exposed. “Quiet” who doesn’t have a word will be teased in the story as well. 

But once you recognize the secret reason for her exposure, you will feel ashamed of your words & deeds.

Theme of “MGSV” is “GENE”⇒”MEME”⇒”SCENE”⇒”PEACE”⇒”RACE”. Story touches the misunderstanding, prejudice, hatred, conflict caused by the difference of language, race, custom, culture, and preference. 

The response of “Quiet” disclosure few days ago incited by the net is exactly what “MGSV” itself is.”

In case you’ve been living under a rock and missed the reveal, go here.

    Okay I’m starting to believe that Kojima is deliberately misleading everyone with all the clichés: today’s typical gameplay elements, the “half naked” Quiet etc… and the MGS2 twist will happen again in a different way, and instead of a hollywood-like action game (the image built by the trailers and other stuff) we’ll get something very strange and mature. At least I hope so.

    so it went from Dragon’s Crown, then Killer is Dead, then Lightning Returns FFXIII, and now MGSV.

    funny how most western journalist and devs are the only one bitching about this.

    guess they can’t see the hypocrisy they’re creating.

    shoot people in the head, tons of bloods gushing all around, ribs and bones getting splattered, cursing words every moment A-Ok!

    but as soon as it’s something to do with sexuality oh boy please this is “disgusting”!!!

    “protect the children from this filth”

    i’ll never understand this stupidity from some of this people.

    i also find it funny on how they concentrate too much on Quiet’s wardrobe instead of other things like Paz extracting the bomb from her organs, child soldiers being killed by Snake,

    Limbs cut and being horrified, torturing Quiet and a handicapped Heuy.

    but nope let’s all concentrate on a fictional female’s wardrobe because that’s the “main” problem of the game

    gotta love that double standards!!

    I just can’t believe that people are freaking out over this as bad as they are.
    They are saying that this is childish, but I’m hearing things from them that is much more childish than this. Especially since they don’t even know the context of why she is dressed that way.
    People must not have heard the age old saying “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
