    "Kojima went on record as saying that he was keen to work on a Silent Hill game and claimed he would be a good fit for the franchise."

    The only thing Hideous Kojima would be a good fit for is a trash compactor - he is grossly, disgustingly, impossibly overrated, as his writing/storytelling/plotting, if given form, would resemble that kid with the glasses from Smokin' Aces. The only thing saving him is the technical prowess of the folks who work in his studio, who seem very talented at wringing the best possible performance out of console hardware. That, and the fact enough gamer winners are stupid enough to pony up money for a Jack Bauer demo set in the same "intense" and "deep" universe as Paz-my-name-means-peace-OMFG-me-Kazuhira-I'm-peace-too-WTF-Peace-Walker-OK-my-face-just-melted-with-awesome.

    Despite my disdain...nay, loathing for this immature pretentious hack, I'll keep an open mind about any new stab at trying to produce a decent Silent Hill game (which shouldn't be too hard - this series has absolutely nowhere to go but up) - it would be nice to be pleasantly surprised. That said, "Silent Hills" isn't exactly a promising start...

    The idea that one single guy has much of an influence over a multi million project is laughable at best anyway, anyone who ever worked in a slightly larger company will know that one person won't even be allowed to change the toilet paper in the office without it being approved by the seven circles of hell ehh some committee made up of a whole bunch of other people first.

    Uhhm, I'll admit this is conjecture, but logic suggests one guy was responsible for the Not-Chris-Tucker+cigarette-smoking-metal-bikini-clad-hairless-monkey abomination that was MGS4, and that his name is Hideous Kojima...

    Guess I do suck at making a sarcastic statement, what I was trying to make him realized was how many people liked his work compared to his one statement about hideo
