Hideo Kojima is one of the gaming industry's most well known figures. Revered for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series (and Death Stranding, of course), the designer/director has attracted a large following, and now enjoys an almost celebrity status. These days, Kojima goes mad for social media, and posting regularly on sites like Twitter has made him more popular than ever. He's so popular these days, in fact, that he now has two Guinness World Records to prove it.

It turns out his love of social networking has paid off, as he now officially holds records for the Most Followers for a Video Game Director on both Twitter and Instagram. That's right: Kojima's duo of world records stems from his follower counts, not his games. What a world.

Funnily enough, it seems most social posts mentioning these achievements have been removed.
