The Japanese equivalent of Best Buy has put up a list of the movies that apparently inspired Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima. The list is dominated by action (duh) with some sci-fi thrown in for good measure. Chances are also quite high you’ll find one of these films playing in the [8bit] offices. For Tsutaya’s page about the list, click here. I hope you can read japanese. If you can’t here’s the list in sweet, sweet american. The Guns of Navarone. The Great Escape. Goldfinger. 2001. Planet of the Apes. The Deer Hunter. Dawn of the Dead. Full Metal Jacket. Predator. Die Hard. Heat. Black Hawk Down. Children of Men. The Bourne Identity. Casino Royale. [/film]
