John Carpenter is a passionate gamer
John Carpenter is known in the world of video games not only for having influenced hundreds of creatives in the field, but also because he plays video games and is even a fan of various franchises.
For example, have you ever mentioned that you are a fan of SEGA’s mascot, Sonic, as well as of Dead Space, which he would love to adapt to the big screen. Ever also played and spoke well of Far Cry 5. Another interesting detail is that he was able to make Canal+, in charge of the film Escape from New York, sued Hideo Kojima for his similarity to Metal Gear Solid, but the filmmaker prevented it, because he knew the Japanese creative and considered him a good person.
Despite being a movie genius, Carpenter has not been involved in the development of a video game, although he has expressed a desire to make one one day.
