Who is Hideo Kojima's best friend? An investigation

Not open for further replies.

I'm going to say none of these. These people are visible in his social media because they are also public figures and easy to spot. I'm guessing his real best friend is a non-celebrity Japanese person that none of us know.
1. Mads
2. Geoff
3. Non-celebrity Japanese person
Hmmm plot thickens.

UPDATE: Because folks have reminded me of other Kojima relationships, I have decided to add some more options here. Let's go.

Friend #5 - The Weird One, Nicolas Winding Refn

As many people pointed out, Refn and Kojima's appreciation for one another goes well beyond their products.

It seems they're so confortable around each other, Refn feels no need to wear pants.

And they like to do a fighting stance together.

No matter how many years pass by, this has never changed.

Friend #6 - The Traveling Companion, Mark Cerny

I can't believe I forgot Mark Cerny, Kojima's world tour buddy.

Cerny and Kojima have traveled around the globe together for work, but they didn't forget to have some fun.

In fact, Cerny may be his #1 drinking buddy.

And Cerny is very proud of friendship with Kojima.


It's definitely hard to say. Geoff clearly loves him and Kojima clearly loves Mads. Del Toro seems to be with buddy from work and Reedus is the one he calls when he wants to kick someone's ass.

Though I have to say, it seems he is more interested in spending time with Mads recently.
ATTENTION: OP has been updated with two more possible BFFs - Nicolas Winding Refn and the traveling companion that is Mark Cerny.

This infatuation that some of you have with this man is quite disturbing. I know it's all in fun, but yeesh.
Like it or not but Kojima is easily one of the most well-known and beloved people in the industry. If gaming ever does take off as a mainstream artistic medium (as in, the average person will recognize gaming for its artistic merits), then Kojima will be a man of history.
