Kojima wants to make a Zombie MMO.  You can't make this shit up:
http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=158286

Quote
"The zombie idea I have is a bit different," he told our colleagues at Edge magazine. "Imagine a large town where half the inhabitants are zombies. Users would subscribe, get inside the town and get bitten. At that stage they become undead and can't control their character - all they can do is modify the camera angles... They'd see their character attacking humans and have to pay just to watch!"

Kojima continues: "The only way they could end it is by opening another account, hunting themselves down and killing themselves. Of course, the problem is that your second character can get bitten as well."
So instead of pay to play we have pay to watch?  I'm very reminded of Metal Gear.  Seriously, this is the dumbest idea ever.

Oh great! My zombie's stuck in the scenery.  Now what?!

It's actually rather intriguing concept. But it would have to be free. It'd be the kinda thing you'd check in on periodically

do you think maybe hes making fun of the mmo "culture" in general?  in other words, a bunch of "zombies" pay every month to sit for hours, watching a character and occasionally clicking at which point the character does its thing without input?  and then when the "zombie" in character form gets boring / repetitive / ridiculous to the thousandth level, they just "roll up another" and do it all over again?

in other words, im pretty sure hes not going to make the zombie game - im pretty sure he hates mmos in general

Hmmm...suppose we ditch the idea of having to start a new account, but keep the rest. So you make a character, run around a bit and get eaten.
Now, you can make a new character, and you can also call up the BrainsCam (TM) and see what the due that just munched you is up to.
You could develop a little spy network of BrainsCams (TM) by strategically dying to the right zombies and see what the other human factions are up to.
Of course, taking out a zombie disables access to anyone that had that particular one as a BrainsCam (TM).

Hmmm....
