Focusing mainly on the action/adventure genre of video games with a major focus on technology and cybernetic augmentations to the human body in the near future, Kojima had shown that he is a vivid imagination about the possibilities that evolving inventions in the field can unlock for humanity. And if making his obsession known through his games wasn’t enough, he has taken a step further to tell the world his plan to become immortal through the same technology.

Before leaving Konami and starting his independent game studio Kojima Productions in 2015, the creator was revered in the gaming community for creating the fan-favorite and critically acclaimed Metal Gear video game series. The video game focused on what the true influence technology and the internet had on the wider narrative of the world’s future. And in typical Kojima fashion, it was executed with the utmost perfection.

But now, the creator wants to live in the world that he has created within his video games. According to Kojima, he would love to see how the world turns out in a couple of years. Being a big fan of cyberpunk and dystopian films, he has always been eager to see the future, and thus, he wants to transfer his conscience into an AI algorithm, which will perpetually make him an immortal sentient being on the internet.

Of course, Twitter users who are fans of the director and his games were quick to point out that this isn’t too far from what Kojima’s nature is and what he tries to depict with his works.
