We all know what Hideo Kojima is capable of, but it's also interesting to see how he gauges other products from other studios.
So maybe you're wondering: "what would the master say is the cream of the crop for this holiday season? What should I keep an eye out for?" Well, during a recent Famitsu interview (as found by ConnectedConsoles ), Kojima did mention three titles releasing in the fourth quarter of 2009 that he deems "incredible." One of them we're already pleasantly familiar with and the other two probably won't come as a big shock:
"…I think there are three games that stand out above the rest of the pack in the remainder of this year. One is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, one is Uncharted 2, and the third is Assassin's Creed II. Those three are just incredible."
We're right there with ya on Uncharted 2 , which is easily one of the most impressive games we've ever seen. The other two are also high on our priority list; Modern Warfare 2 is set to explode due to the immense following gained by the original title and that Assassin's Creed sequel looks awesome in every last sense of the word. We're thinking Kojima has maybe seen both games in action – more than the footage we've seen – that makes him say this, but it's hard to tell. Either way, it's a strong endorsement of those games; if Kojima likes 'em, we get the feeling we'll like 'em, too.
