Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has never made it a secret that Snake is modeled largely in part from Escape From New York's Snake Plissken, but we never would have dreamed that Kurt Russell's character would have starred in his own game. 

Apparently back in 2004 exactly that was slated to happen – the team from Dead to Rights 2 was working on a very different kind of "Snake" title and would have included a virtually rendered Kurt. Basically, the industry missed out, and as you can see from this video, it would have been pretty awesome. Watch, mourn and dream of what could have been.
