"Hideo Kojima is one of the biggest names in the video game industry, creating iconic games that have captured gamers' imaginations. It is also clear that many of his games are highly influenced by movies, and Kojima has never shied away from those influences. He even wrote an entire blog series on his website where he discussed his influences.
In the last of the blog posts, he listed his favorite movies that influenced his games, specifically Metal Gear Solid. In this article, he listed the movies that he based the game on, some all-time classics that he loved, and then 30 other movies that he considers his all-time favorites. While that totaled well over 40 movies, there were several that he feels people should definitely check out among his favorites."
