With the recent noise (http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/12/08/shigeru-miyamoto-retiring-from-current-position-sticking-with-nintendo.aspx) surrounding suggestions that Miyamoto could be retiring from his position at Nintendo, many gamers may be considering the fact that their most beloved designers won't be around forever. For his part, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima plans to be making games for as long as it's physically possible.

Speaking at a Q&A session for the Smithsonian's "Art of Video Games" exhibit (via ShackNews (http://www.shacknews.com/article/72924/kojima-to-make-games-until-the-day-i-die)), Kojima said that he plans to still be working on games 25 years from now "if I'm not dead by that time," adding:
"I don't have any intention to retire, so until the day I die, I will be making games.... Maybe by that time, technology will be so advanced that I can just make a game by myself using a bunch of robots. Who knows?"

Kojima went on to say that he's okay with people equating him with the Metal Gear series but hopes to work on "something that pushes the boundaries, something that may not even sell, but something that's new." With the rest of his life ahead of him, I sure hope he gets that chance.

If Kojima wants to make games until he is dead than I'll support him with his choice.

If he wants to keep churning out convoluted nonsense like Metal Gear Solid until he dies, I'll continue not buying them. It's a relationship I'm more than happy with :wve:

Kojima is all Konami have left. So no surprise they won't let him go.

Kojima will never die. They'll just clone him. Octuplet Snakes. :cool:

Tell me about it. Anytime people go on about series that are chronically overrated/don't deserve the sales, etc., (COD, Madden, etc.) I just have to wonder why MGS doesn't get stuck with the same label.

Because MGS fans don't write like this

Joint Ops by Bumblebeeprime09

I was nervous as hell when I disembarked from the Black Hawk. I saw Humvees and M939s all over the place. I saw an Abrams tank roll by. "Helluva secret base" I thought in my head. My name is Alex Tom Arthur, and I am a Sergeant. I was in southern Kazakhstan, at Taurus International base, the forward base for the Task force. Task Force 142 was supposed to be a group of the most elite combat warriors in the world. It was like those black operations rumors, only not so secret.

Japan has the longest overall life expectancy at birth of any country in the world 83.5 years. :p
