Metal Gear Solid Could One Day Evolve Into Metal Gear... Social

Listen up, social butterflies. Stealth series Metal Gear might eventually contain social game elements. According to creator Hideo Kojima, social and core games will evolve together, until they converge.

"I think in the future maybe Metal Gear will change in certain ways to integrate social aspects," Kojima told website CVG. "If you look at other games on the market now you can see it's already happening, so Metal Gear may at some point get involved."

Kojima said he had lots of ideas how social aspects could make Metal Gear "more fun". And who doesn't like fun?

"The goal is not to say social or core, it's using social to integrate different core groups, so you have the core audience but then, via social methods, hardcore gamers can interact with less hardcore players."

    Social integration is a goddamn plague on video games.

    "You got a notification: Some dumb ass guy you know from high school that you never talk to who added you when you first got on facebook 3 years ago and used to make fun of you for playing video games wants to you play metal gear-ville with you!"

    If this ever happens, kill me.

    As soon as I heard "social metal gear", I had a mental image of a warehouse full of cardboard boxes and metal barrells with people hiding inside talking to each other...

      ^HAHAHAHAHA oh god that's great.

    A stealth social game sounds like "The Quiet Game'. First one to communicate, loses.
