My cousin who is the biggest Hideo Kojima (maker of Metal Gear Solid) fan of all time went to Dubai to meet him last week. I remember my cousin teaching me how to finish Metal Gear Solid on PS1 in one day, took around 10 hours. Geekay Games managed to bring Hideo Kojima to Dubai for the first time in the Arab region, exciting for many.
You only got to sign one of your items. The signing session was two hours long and there were 445 signatures in total. There were people from Pakistan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Kuwait. In a way he’s like the Justin Bieber of video games popularity-wise. I was told his English wasn’t that good, which came as a surprise.
Judging from his twitter feed it looks like Hideo Kojima had a pretty good time in Dubai. He even went to Mc Donalds and ordered a Mc Arabia. I’m glad the huge portion of Arab gamers are finally getting some celebrity attention from the gaming industry. I wonder who will be next, maybe the maker of street fighter.
