After what was a very long and arduous year for Hideo Kojima in 2015, he is finally going to be able to attend a ceremony to accept an award. The induction into the Gaming Hall of Fame will be presented to him by non other than his former Silent Hills co-director Guillermo del Toro at next months DICE Summit.
The two were originally making a new Silent Hills game which saw a short lived playable trailer on the Playstation Network aptly called ‘P.T.‘. Konami binned the project because it was too expensive or it didn’t have enough pachinko in it or something and quite frankly, if someone from the audience doesn’t shout “Silent Hill!” at least once during the proceedings then it won’t be a proper gaming award show will it?
Still, a great honour to befall the legendary designer and surely an event that will help put behind all the nasty and craptacular things of the previous year. Here’s looking ahead Kojima.
