One such creator is Hideo Koijima, a Japanese video game director who worked at Konami mostly known for Contra, Castle Vania, and the series that Koijima made Metal Gear Solid. He influenced me by being a good example of going against the mold and making what would become an international success. One of his first projects is what would lead to the original series of metal gear. When it was a standard to make a 2-D side scrolling action shooter he had to work with the NES and the Famicons limitations at the time and made an overhead stealth game.
