Kurt Russell’s performance as Snake Plissken in Escape From New York has quite the cult following and it inspired Hideo Kojima, who took the name and used his appearance to make Metal Gear Solid’s Snake.
Now thanks to a mod, you can complete the cycle and play as Snake Plisskin in Metal Gear Solid 5. The mod was made by JinMarr, and it is available on NexusMods for everyone with a PC and a will to run around as Plissken. The mod also lets you play as Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China, in case you wanted to live out some more of your older movie fantasies.
Now I didn’t have any plans to revisit Metal Gear Solid 5 any time soon, but something from my childhood is calling me. Also how is it that we didn’t get a whole universe worth of Snake Plissken movies and games? Really now.
