Kojima is the Hideaki Anno of the game industry.
He is great for a video game director (which admittedly isn't saying a whole lot because the writing and directing talent in this industry is overwhelmingly garbage compared to other media), but personally I don't think he's anywhere near Anno's level. The Phantom Pain really shook my faith in Kojima's abilities and I hope he hasn't completely lost his touch. I will be watching Death Stranding closely and I hope it turns out good, as I have said before Kojima does his best work with a new IP/plot and this game may be what he needs to get his mojo back.
Anyhow, this tuned out to be a great E3. Not nearly as good as last year, I mean we got two holy grails announced last year (FFVIIR and Shenmue 3), but it was better than any others in recent memory. I got quite a few things checked off my list:
Persona 5 US release date: Check
Horizon: Zero Dawn: Check
Ghost Recon: Wildlands: Check
The Legend of Zelda Wii U: Check
South Park: The Fractured but Whole: Check
Dragon Quest Builders physical localization for the west: Check
Final Fantasy XII IZJS HD Remaster: Check
New Kojima IP: Death Stranding
Fallout 3 GOTY/New Vegas UE remaster for PS4/X1 (with mod support): Very likely now since they're doing exactly this with Skyrim
