With the launch of Metal Gear Solid V and all the hype that surrounds this great game, we tend to forget how many people’s lives have been touched by both the Metal Gear franchise and Hideo Kojima himself. In the video below, Kojima visits a few of the people that not only worked with him on the Metal Gear games, but also people who found themselves emotionally invested in the franchise.
