What Would You Like To See Hideo Kojima Discuss At His PAX Panel?

By Ishaan . August 27, 2012 . 1:00pm

What would you like Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, to talk about at his panel at the Penny Arcade Expo this week? Konami are letting fans put it to vote with the following five choices:


1. Has storytelling through video games evolved in the way you originally thought?

2. Other than the Great Escape, what other movies have influenced Metal Gear?

3. What is the most exciting feature you can share with us about Fox Engine?

4. What are some of the trends you’ve seen in other video game developers?

5. Is there any genre of game you would like to explore in a future title?


Based on fan votes, Kojima will discuss three of these five topics at PAX Prime on September 1st. At present, 1, 3 and 5 are leading (in that order). You can cast your vote here.


In the meantime, on August 30th in Japan, Konami will be holding the Metal Gear Solid 25th anniversary celebration, where Kojima Productions will show what the Fox Engine is capable of.

    I agree with the choices of 1, 3 and 5. The other two have been talked about to death, I feel.

    • Barrylocke89

      I also think 1, 3, and 5 are the most interesting talking points of the choices. It’s cool that Konami is setting the panel up in that way though. Even though I’m nowhere near Seattle, I can at least hear a few cool things from the reports.

  • badmoogle

    Obvious choice is obvious.

    Number 3.

  • MrRobbyM

    What you said. 1,3 and 5.

  • kupomogli

    Well, atleast three and five are up there.  I’d rather see four than one, though.  I’d rather hear what he thinks about other developers than his opinion on storyline in video games.

    I’d rather see five the most with three after.  Hopefully they stay in the top three.

    Why can’t they just discuss all of them with no. 2 as some sort of a short trivia while the rest can be a long and detailed discussion?

  • Setsu Oh

    if he could remakecontinue policenauts or snatcher what sort of gameplay does he feel fit those games now that he has the fame the budget the workforce to make it (

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I’d like to know more about ZOE 3DS.

    •  wait, a ZOE 3ds ? o.o

      • Tom_Phoenix

        It’s not actually a confirmed title or anything (and no, it’s not an actual 3DS either =P), but last year, Kojima teased his fans with this picture via Twitter:


        I’d like to know if he was hinting at an actual title or was it just something he thought about.

  • TheDarkEmpress

    6. When are you going to start making games again?

  • When will ZOE HD Collection VITA come out. Or has it been cancelled?

  • John Szczepaniak

    This is the most ridiculous, idiotic thing I’ve ever heard. All five of those questions are generic stock questions, to which he no doubt has generic stock answers, pre-scripted and pre-approved. Why the hell are they expecting you to vote for 3/5 – just ask all of them! He’s an entertainer, a creator, when he’s giving a talk YOU ARE ALLOWED TO MAKE HIM DANCE FOR YOUR PLEASURE! They should allow open questions from the audience. Make him DANCE I say! If you actually vote on this, then you are complicit with Konami’s condescension of you.

    Number 5, i want kojima to make the most epic Jrpg that has a story telling on the level of MGS series!!!

  • Sakurazaki

    Surprised to find only two comments on a new ZoE game…

  • eliel

    what’s up with “project ogre”(that screen shot above) is it a game?

    • isfuturebright

      I think it has something to do with Tactics Ogre series… I might be wrong. I think I read it’s a new franchise that Kojima wanted to work but never had opportunity cause kept being drag to do metal gears
