On the Internet, Kojima was nicknamed a genius, but hethe game designer does not consider himself as such, although he is striving for this. MGS author also noted that such attention puts pressure on him, but at the same time helps to become better, meeting the expectations of the players. Examples of role models for Kojima were artists, including director Tarkovsky.

Speaking about the creative process, Hideo saidwhich approaches the creation of games comprehensively. Initially, the designer creates the big picture, and then comes up with the details. For example, a huge backpack behind the back of the main character, Kojima, was originally invented, and only then decided that Norman Reedus would wear it.
