GTA 5 next-gen is ‘so impressive it depresses me,’ says Kojima

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has heaped praise on the next-gen edition of Rockstar’s crime opus, Grand Theft Auto 5, and said that the upcoming PS4, Xbox One and PC versions are “super impressive”.

The latest entries in the Metal Gear Solid series, titled Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, are the first to adopt an open-world format. This genre is something which Rockstar is famous for, having pioneered with 3D open worlds on GTAIII and subsequent games in the blockbuster franchise.

Speaking in aninterview with CVG, Kojima was asked to reflect on how high Rockstar had set the bar.

“It’s a bit different because Rockstar is going in a very different direction to what I’m trying to create,” he replied.
