Kojima used to watch the making of The Abyss to cheer himself up from development fatigue

With Death Stranding, Kojima is trying to do something truly new and unique. While he has a clear picture of what he wants to create, it can be tough explaining his vision to the members of his team. But according to the famous game director, creating something takes great determination. He compares the process to the making of 1989’s The Abyss, by James Cameron.

I loved that movie when I was a kid.

So did I. It was also one of the very first VHS we owned at my place when we first had a VCR. I'm so glad I finally managed to get my hands on a quality blu-ray rip of that movie, since The Abyss in 1080p is for some reason an exclusivity of the North-American market and I'm in Europe. Director's cut, too.

Blu-ray is region free I believe. I have many Blu-rays from Europe that all work on my bluray player and ps3.

Does he listen to Cameron's songs aswell :D

"His name is James, James Cameron
The bravest pioneer
No budget too steep, no sea too deep
Who's that?
It's him, James Cameron"

Even geniuses need to put their and relax here and there.
I hope to have the same motivation as Kojima one day.

Well don't use his last game as motivation then.

If you don't have it now, you'll never have it.

Kojima has always used movies for inspiration.
Snakes name came from 'Escape from New York'.

Hmm, I always pictured him watching something from John Carpenter.......oh well.

Love that movie. Easily one of Cameron's best. Kojima just earned some cool points, but I expect nothing less from a Escape from New York fan!
