Geoff Keighley stated that Hideo Kojima had every intention of attending The Game Awards 2015 to accept any awards, but a Konami lawyer said they (Konami) barred Kojima from attending. Geoff said it was "inconceivable."

Kojima is the guy that developed Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

Basically, Hideo Kojima was supposed to attend the awards but Konami's lawyers put the kibosh on that. It's pretty screwed up.
