Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima is to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award during the forthcoming 2009 Game Developers Choice Awards at GDC next month.

GDC event director, Meggan Scavio, commented: “For years, Hideo Kojima’s contributions to game development have broken new ground and inspired the community to think about creating games in never-before-imagined ways.”

“From giving birth to the stealth action game genre to showing game makers how to interact with their players by breaking the ‘fourth wall,’ Kojima’s achievements make him an obvious choice for an award.”

As previously reported, Kojima will be delivering a keynote at the event, entitled “Solid Game Design: Making the ‘Impossible’ Possible.”
