As the brainchild of one of the industry’s leading minds, Hideo Kojima’s mysterious Death Stranding might be the must-have title of 2019. But in true Kojima fashion, with each newly released trailer, the game’s plotline and gameplay only get more mysterious. So let OGN break down everything you can possibly know about Death Stranding.
This game is not played with a controller. It is played with your mind, which commands your fingers, which hold the controller.
Hideo Kojima has said that the game is about the “importance of forging connections with others,” proving once and for all that he doesn’t know anything about what makes a good video game.
Hundreds of beached whales provided motion capture footage needed for the hyper-realistic in-game graphics.
Hideo Kojima has confirmed that you cannot see Norman Reedus’ CGI penis, but you can see his eyes, which a more mature adult should find equally, if not even more, arousing.
The main character is named Sam Porter Bridges, in honor of Hideo Kojima’s three greatest inspirations: former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar, professional wrestler Montel Vontavious Porter, and the Golden Gate Bridge.
If you’re hoping that Kojima has finally written another female character with as much depth and emotional nuance as The Boss, don’t hold your breath.
The repeated use of babies is symbolic of the core theme of how we used to all be babies.
Imagery of dead marine life covered in a black, viscous fluid that destroys everything it touches probably has some symbolic meaning of some kind.
However, the game’s title refers to absolutely nothing—nothing—at all.
