After reading this list, I began to understand why Metal Gear Solid was a terribly drawn out video game. I found this list to have an insight on who this man is. The 15 movies that has influenced Hideo Kojima.
The Guns of Navarone - Espionage action, anyone!?
The Great Escape - Steve McQueen... Really?
Goldfinger - Bond = Snake? Surprising.
2001: A Space Odyssey - Otacon was named after 2001's Hal.
Planet of the Apes - My god...
The Deer Hunter - Snake's bandanna!!
Dawn of the Dead - Tiny tight spaces seem familiar?
Full Metal Jacket - Can we all day Sniper Wolf?
Die Hard - I have no idea where the fuck this came from...
Heat - This has to be in the top 10 of everyone who has a mind of their own.
Predator - Octocamo!
Black Hawk Down - It gave him the idea to put the fourth in the middle East.
Children of Men - Even I really like this movie.
The Bourne Identity - Again the thought of WTF!? appears in my mind's eye.
Casino Royale - Bond = Snake.
This actually made me wonder what the hell is going on in his head. We call can see that James Bond is the main influence for Good Ol' Solid Snake. Whudda thunk it?!
