The 47 best and oddest photos of Metal Gear's Hideo Kojima being deliriously weird and awesome

Hideo Kojima isn't just the creator of Metal Gear Solid. He isn't just the dialogue-fetishising king of cut-scenes. He isn't just the sharply-dressed pioneer auteur with the most terrifying laser-eyed stare in all of gaming.

No, thanks to all of the above, as well as his propensity for ending up in all sorts of odd scenarios which both exacerbate and subvert all of his deliriously avant garde sensibilities, he's also responsible for some of the weirdest and funniest game-related photos on the internet. So high is the awesome factor in Kojima photos that I have collected together a whole 47 of them for your perusal and delight. They're brilliant. I've even written captions. 47 of the buggers. The photos are that good.

Above: "After years of meditation, I have finally transformed my genitals into a horrified duck"

Above:"Look at this man! His genitals can't turn into anything!"

Above: "Sometimes I can even transform them into a snake as well"

Above: "And if I really concentrate, I can fire a tiny person out"

Above: "Christ, that Itagaki. What the f*ck is he wearing? Does he thinking this is a bloody circus or something? Sodding embarrassment, everywhere we go"

Above: "Merry Christmas, Mum"

Above: It was well-known that Kojima and Suda51 had the politest rap battles around

Above: "WTF? How does this work? There's no scrolly menu. Which end do the bullets go in?"

Above: Kojima was considerably less impressed with his piece of paper than his friend was

Above: Hahahahaha! But who has the prettiest face? I do, don't I? It's me, isn't it? Yes"

    :D I bloody love you, Houghters, and I love Kojima almost as much Kojima, oddly, reminds me a whole lot of my Aunt's husband. Although, Kojima's obviously far more attractive.

    My biggest problem with this article is that you left out the best image of Kojima:

    The thought of Kojima saying "sodding embarassment" made me laugh my ass off
  • GameManiac - February 17, 2012 10:21 a.m.

    I think my favorite picture was Kojima giving you the finger. Do Reggie next! There's plenty of him to spoof.

    Is this going to be a thing? Because it definitely should be. Video games, people playing games, celebrities etc. You guys could call it "The 40" and just have 40 something video game related pictures and captions.
  • Fluffdaddy - February 17, 2012 8:44 a.m.

    Because nothing says entertainment like lists.
