15 Movies That Influenced MGS

 Metal Gear Solid 15 Movies That Influenced MGS

I knew beforehand that Metal Gear Solid (MGS) creator, Hideo Kojima was a movie buff.  You can just tell by the games’ cinematic scenes that he wants to have the same production value as high budget movies.  Sure 2001: A Space Odyssey, is on the list but what surprised me though was that MGS wasn’t really influenced by science fiction movies.  It was more influenced by some of my favorite action movies including Black Hawk Down and Die Hard. 

With the crazy story that MGS has, I was certain Kojima would be more into Blade Runner or Robocop.  Kojima teamed up with Japanese rental online service, Tsutaya and came up with the movies that influenced MGS:

Full Metal Jacket

Die Hard
Black Hawk Down
The Guns of Navarone

The Great Escape
Planet of the Apes
The Deer Hunter
Dawn of the Dead
Children of Men
The Bourne Identity
Casino Royale
