Hideo Kojima has cemented himself as one of the legends of the online game trade through the Metal Gear Solid collection. And now the visionary is seeking to proceed that with Death Stranding on PS4. That mentioned, what video games does Kojima prefer to play when he’s not making critically-acclaimed titles himself? Well, the former Konami developer has revealed his favourite sport of the previous 5 years, and it is nothing like the video games he makes.
According to Kojima, his favourite sport of the previous 5 years is a critically-acclaimed indie from developer Playdead that launched in 2016. Yes, that is proper, Kojima’s favourite sport of the previous 5 years is Inside, the atmospheric puzzle-platformer. Personally, Inside is my favourite sport of 2016 and one of my favorites from this era as properly. In different phrases, whereas some could have by no means heard of Inside, those that have performed it, will not discover it this that shocking: it is very, excellent.
For those who do not know: Inside launched again in 2016 through the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. A religious successor to 2010’s Limbo, the sport was extraordinarily well-received, presently sitting at a 93 on Metacritic, which makes it one of the highest-rated video games of this era. Since its launch, it has additionally come to Nintendo Switch.
“Hunted and alone, a boy finds himself drawn into the center of a dark project,” reads a really transient pitch of the sport from Playdead.
Hideo Kojima does not go into element about what he likes about Inside, and that is most likely for the finest: the much less you recognize about the sport earlier than enjoying it, the higher. It’s solely a pair of hours lengthy, but it surely’s a tremendous couple of hours.
