Today, Hideo Kojima announced his YouTube show, HideoTube and they put up the first episode as well. If you've played any of the Metal Gear Solid series, then you'll know that he's heavily influenced by film. He loves movies and his twitter bio even says, "70% of my body is made movies".
Which is a pretty awesome thing coming from a game designer. The video is about 45 minutes long, so you probably don't have the time to watch the thing if you're at work or on the move but I think you should still visit the page and hit subscribe. Honestly, it's kind of cool that we get to see a lot more of Kojima now that he's done with Konami.
I think it's really interesting that Kojima is doing this because it gives him a lot more face time with his fans. Thankfully, the video is subtitled so if you don't know Japanese, you're okay if you decide to watch the video below.
Instead of spoiling his whole list of favorite movies, I'm going to talk about one the more surprising picks on his list. Well, it's not that surprising, I just think it should've been a little higher but, hey, I'm not Kojima and that's fine.
His number 10 film in his Top 10 list is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I thought it could've been in the Top 5 because it's definitely in my Top 5. But if you're interested in Kojima's thoughts on movies like I am, be sure to check out the rest of the video above.
