The movie Escape from New York - a rip off of Metal Gear Solid?

The movie Escape from New York - a rip off of Metal Gear Solid?

It released in 1981 so that’s a no. I believe kojima was semi-inspired by it when naming snake and it’s why he goes by pliskin in solid 2 just as another reference

Other way around

Why did Kojima rip it off? ​ Does that mean the whole MGS series is a plagiarism?

Have you ever heard of inspiration?


PromiseMeStars

No. There is so much completely different it's not plagiarism. It's not a rip-off either. Kojima was just inspired by the protagonist.

The term for what he did with escape from new york and so many other movies is pastiche


PromiseMeStars

Hm. Maybe. Google tells me a pastiche is a work made in the style of another work. While there are enough similarities between MGS1 and Escape From New York for that to kind of fit, I think in the case of other movies referenced throughout the series they'd be closer to homages. But semantics aside, it's not a rip-off. That's what matters.

Is this an out-of-season April’s Fools’ joke?


DannyGamerThorist

Sorry, kind stranger but you double commented.

Lmaoooo. No snakes name is literally inspired by snake pliskeen. And do MGS isnt a ripoff. It's like how some game inspire others. Escape form New York inspired the MGS series

Insperation is a hell of a thing.
