MGS's Hideo Kojima said all sorts of crazy shit. Like technology doesn't have any effect on storytelling. This was my favorite quote of his:
MGS is not about telling a good story. It's about a protagonist who infiltrates and fights some bad guys.[...] That's the whole plot. Well, I do throw in many twists towards the end to surprise the player, but I limit that to a level that is not confusing. MGS is an action game, and I cannot really make the story any more complex.
