Last year, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima said Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V looked so good that it actually "depressed" him.
He wasn't sure he could get his own upcoming game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , to reach that level of graphical brilliance. Now, after GTAV was announced for next-gen consoles and PC, well…the poor guy is depressed all over again.
During a recent CVG interview , Kojima said:
"What Rockstar has created and the world they have created is super impressive, and actually when I saw the PS4 version a few days ago I got depressed again. And this is not game design-related it's just me. The quality that they showed in the PS4 trailer was really impressive."
We saw a pretty awesome trailer for The Phantom Pain during Sony's show as well, so he shouldn't be selling himself short. Kojima also said the Rockstar went in a "very different direction" as compared to the game he's trying to make. Honestly, this is someone who shouldn't be feeling outclassed in the world of video game development.
But hey, that's the hallmark of the perfectionist.
