Kojima: We've Been 'Surpassed'


Posted May 14, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

We're not sure if master-genius game designer Hideo Kojima got up on the wrong side of the bed or what, but the Metal Gear creator said in an interview that the West has surpassed Japan when it comes to game-making.

Unfortunately, overseas game production companies, which are well-funded and extremely skilled, have surpassed us by a couple of steps...It was once said that Japan molded the world's video game [industry], but that's becoming a thing of the past. Sad as it may be, it's the truth.

We're not sure. We find that Eastern and Western games have different flavors and bring different things to gamers' tables. But what do you think? Is the East's reign over gaming over?
