Why is Hideo Kojima so important?

Hideo Kojima is a designer that has pushed boundaries, provided us with new genres and creates games under the mantra that it is possible to bring the impossible to players.

In this episode of Gaming: The Podcast we talk about his impact on the video game medium, the importance of strong themes in his writing and direction and how it is that he has come to be such an important and unique voice.

Conversation is primarily centered around Death Stranding and the Metal Gear Solid series and there are some minor spoilers for these included.
