Hideo Kojima and Jordan Peele Talk Metal Gear Solid, Nope, and Aliens in New Podcast


Jordan Peele and Hideo Kojima sat down to talk about Nope, Metal Gear Solid and more in a brand new podcast. Hideo Kojima is considered one of the “authors” of gaming, as he creates incredibly layered, story-driven and character-driven games. However, he knows he’s making a game and doesn’t compromise on actual gameplay. Its video games are filled with rich stories that are backed by fun and engaging gameplay. Although he has his problems, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has some of the best third-person shooter gameplay and is wrapped in a pretty interesting, albeit somewhat incomplete, storyline due to development issues.

Director Jordan Peele is one of the most recent “writers” to break into Hollywood with films like get out and Nope. They’re very distinct and covered in social commentary, much like Kojima’s games. For a new episode of Hideo Kojima’s Spotify podcast, Brain Structure, the two sat down and talked about their work. Peele noted the ways he was inspired by Solid Metal Gear 2 and spoke with Kojima about some of the themes and ideas behind Nope. All in all, it’s quite a fascinating conversation and one that fans of both creators will surely enjoy. It’s a great behind-the-scenes dive that offers all kinds of insight into how the minds of these two acclaimed creators think. The podcast is exclusively available on Spotify and is available in English and Japanese.

While some are hoping to see what Hideo Kojima works on next, it’s great to see him using his platform and creativity to expand into other mediums. Not only is it really entertaining, but it’s also incredibly educational for fans who don’t hear much about how these creative talents work on a regular basis. Spotify also notes that this is part of this particular podcast, so there may be more conversations with Hideo Kojima and Jordan Peele very soon.
