Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has revealed his top five games, which just happen to include Metal Gear Solid.

According to Gamerush, Kojima was speaking to Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun.

He listed the Super Mario Bros. series, Outer World and Xevious as being amongst the most memorable and influential games for him, along with Portopia Renzoku Satsujin Jiken (an '80s adventure game released only in Japan). And, of course, Metal Gear Solid.

"Games are a composite art that evolves absorbing new technologies," Kojima said. Jolly good.
