He pretty much predicted 9/11 before it happened [in MGS2]. Most things he put into games was bullseye. Death Stranding is perfect for what we're experiencing now. He pretty much said "if you wanted a fractured America, here's how it looks."I loved that segment when I first listened to it 20 years ago, and I still love it now.
Whatever Kojima was on at the time, he was still toking it when he made Death Stranding.
People thought it was ridiculous for him to depict a fractured America where people are afraid to make physical contact with each other and those that were able relied on long-distance deliveries to get things of varying levels of importance to them, and then the pandemic happened.
Let's hope he doesn't put any relevant social commentary in Silent Hills or something.
I liked the atmosphere, but not a fan of the "walking simulator." Not a fan of it, but I am interested in the story. That's why Hideo Kojima has the cult following he has - because he knows how to create stories. The Metal Gear series is known for not just the Snake character, but also the Metal Gear story.
