Hideo Kojima provides some advice for playing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

Hideo Kojima knows that sneaking around too much can be bad for you.


Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has been a little bit active on Twitter recently. The legendary designer first asked players if they're enjoying the game. The result was overwhelmingly positive, as you might expect.

Kojima then dropped a couple of sound advices for anyone currently playing.

The designer then provided some interesting insight into what goes on in his mind once a game is shipped.

If you're playing The Phantom Pain now, or planning to later, make sure to bookmark our extensive guide. Alternatively, you can read our essential beginner tips and best tactics pieces.
