Kojima says final farewell to Metal Gear Solid in emotional video

With Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain released to overwhelmingly positive reviews, it seems it is time for series creator Hideo Kojima to say goodbye.

In this touching video, Kojima sits down with some of the talented people he's worked with over the years to discuss the 28-year-old series. Kojima is parting ways with longtime partner Konami with the release of The Phantom Pain after a still undisclosed fallout that resulted in the mothballing of a new Silent Hill game.

While some of this more than 10-minute-long video can get a bit self-aggrandizing, the ending pulls it all back to what Kojima says matters most to him: the fans.

It's an emotional ending you need to make sure to stick around and watch.
