Kojima Productions Taking Feedback From Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Players


Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is meant to serve as both a demo and a tutorial for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but Kojima Productions are also using the game to gather feedback from players.


Kenichiro Imaizumi, Senior Producer at Kojima Productions, recently tweeted: “Is there anything you want us to fix for game controls in GZ? We’d like to get feedback and assess as many as possible for Phantom Pain.”


A few hours later, a Twitter user tweeted at Imaizumi, pointing him to a Reddit thread, where Ground Zeroes players had gathered to provide their feedback in response to Imaizumi’s request.


Shortly after this exchange, Imaizumi tweeted: “Thanx for all the feedback! Will share with Hideo & team to make sure the player’s voice is heard and to help TPP. Enjoy MGSV:GZ !”


I assume Kojima Productions are still on the lookout for feedback, given that not everyone buys a game at launch. If you’ve been playing Ground Zeroes, you might want to contribute to the thread on Reddit or reach out directly to Imaizumi via his Twitter.
