Fans Rally to Kojima’s Side After Konami Bars Him From Game Awards

You done messed up, Konami.

Hideo Kojima has had a rough couple of months. While he did put out the wildly successful Metal Gear Solid V, he left Kojima Productions and Konami since then has been going through some crazy crap. Things got even weirder when Geoff Keighley announced at the Game Awards tonight that Kojima straight up wasn’t legally allowed by Konami to attend.

That. Is. Fucked. Up. And naturally, Twitter rallied to the famed developer’s side after hearing of this seriously screwy news.

There’s a fascinating book to made from all this.

One thing’s for certain: no one is Konami’s friend right now.
