Hideo Kojima gets Lifetime Achievement Award from MTV

Well it's about blooming time. Metal Gear Solid creator and Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima has become the very first recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Game Award at MTV Awards 2008, memorialised here by diligent Youtube fans.

As if that wasn't enough, MTV got the delectable Jade Raymond of Assassin's Creed fame to hand over the trophy. She gave a rather laudatory speech, giving special attention to the "dramatic and memorable cut scenes" which characterise the MGS series, and described Kojima as "the first creator who's taken the risk of discussing current issues and things that matter to modern gamers". We were sobbing in our seats.

Kojima himself then took the stage to make the following stirring insistence: "I will continue to create games as long as I live." Good on you, Kojima-san. We're sure the best is yet to come.
