To begin with, at the age of three his family moved to Kansai, Japan’s southernmost region. As a big fan of cinema, he made several short films in small 8 mm while still in college. Being a young Japanese fan of robots, he quickly became interested in video games. He started working for Konami in 1986 as the post game planner (project manager).”Metal Gear” on the MSX was his first production. The third episode, nearly a decade later, “Metal Gear Solid” was released on PlayStation. Thanks to the quality of the script, graphic and technical exemplary achievement that has made cross an additional video game console, many new possibilities offered to the players.

Since Kojima has remained true to his principles, developing and producing “Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty”, producing “Zone Of The Enders 1 & 2” and developing “Boktai 1 & 2”, games were based on ambient brightness. Hideo Kojima was promoted to Vice President of Konami Digital Entertainment, alongside Shinji Enomoto, on the 1st April, 2011, and created his own studio Kojima Productions. At the Game Developers Conference 2013, Kojima presented the new sequel of the video game “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain”, then in mid-2014, following the Sony conference, it was announced that a new instalment of the franchise “Silent Hill” on the PlayStation 4 will be directed by Kojima in collaboration with Guillermo del Toro. However, the game was eventually cancelled in 2015.

Due to various misunderstandings between Kojima as a man and Kojima Productions as a studio, his departure from Konami was announced on the 16th December 2015. However, he continues to work as an external consultant to finalize “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain”, which will be the last game in the series created by him. According to the latest statements by Konami, the series could still continue to exist thereafter, despite the absence of its original creator. It is worth mentioning the fact that Kojima announced he was leaving Konami to found his own independent studio. It retains the name of Kojima Productions in a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment, to develop a game that will be released initially on PlayStation 4.

#Fact
1 Good friend of the creator of the Super Smash Bros and Kirby franchise "Masahiro Sakurai". Sakurai even put Solid Snake from Kojimas Metal Gear Solid in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character.
2 His 5 favorite movies include Blade Runner, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Heaven and Hell, Taxi Driver and 2001: A Space Oddesey. Heaven and Hell is the only film in his list that is Japanese.
3 He always needs Scott Dolph with him whenever he's having an interview in English because Kojima does not speak English well enough to communicate. Dolph helps interprets everything the interviewers say to Kojima.
4 An avid F. Paul Wilson fan. He has had meetings with Wilson regarding creating a game based on the popular Repairman Jack character from Wilsons novels.
5 Approached by the Watchowski Brothers to work in the production team of "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions"

#Quote
1 Honestly, I'm a movie fan and that's very special to me. I honestly would love to make a movie someday, but that said, I think it has to be a certain special game that has to provide that right setting. But I don't think that game will be Metal Gear Solid. Metal Gear Solid was developed specifically to become a game. ...If it were to be made into a movie it would have to be something completely new. I wouldn't use my current scripts. I think I'd have to get somebody to get a new script and somebody else to direct it as a movie.
2 The human body is supposed to be 70 percent water. I consider myself 70 percent film.

#Trademark
1 Fresh, cutting edge gameplay.
2 Intense cinematic in-game cutscenes.
3 Frequent references to his previous games (e.g. the term "Metal Gear" is used in almost every of his games since Metal Gear (1987)
4 Uses the given standards of a console to bring the best gaming experience possible.
5 His games frequently feature characters that are influenced from famous Hollywood movie characters. For example, Solid Snake from Metal Gear is based on the character Snake Plisken from Escape from New York, Gillian Seed from Snatcher looks similar to Rick Deckard from Blade Runner and Jonathan Ingram and ED Brown from Policenauts look like Riggs and Murtaugh from the Lethal Weapon series.
6 His games often revolve around nuclear weapons and genetic manipulations
