By Mel


Hideo Kojima is one of the acknowledged rock stars of the gaming world.

Kojima san’s name is one of the few recognizable names, along with Shigeru Miyamoto, Yu Suzuki, Sid Meier, Will Wright and Peter Molyneux, that have come to define the modern gaming industry. As such, his lifestyle is also fiercely scrutinized just like any other celebrity.

The guys at the Tsutaya superstore in Japan has done a great scoop for Kojima and Metal Gear Solid fans. As part of the store’s tie-in promotion with Metal Gear Solid, Tsutaya has displayed Hideo Kojima’s 15 favorite movies. These movies have a strong influence on how the Metal Gear Solid came to be and has evolved.

Just a tantalizing example, did you know that Kojima was actually inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in picking the names for both Snake and Otacon (David and Hal). Cool, innit!
