Cyberpunk pioneer William Gibson credits the film as an influence on his novel Neuromancer. I was intrigued by the exchange in one of the opening scenes where the Warden says to Snake ‘You flew the Gullfire over Leningrad, didn’t you?’ It turns out to be just a throwaway line, but for a moment it worked like the best science fiction, where a casual reference can imply a lot.
Videogame director Hideo Kojima has referred to the movie Escape from New York frequently as an influence on his work, in particular the Metal Gear series. Solid Snake is partially influenced by Snake Plissken.
