Because image and music copyrights weren't nearly as big of an issue in that era.

Same way Kojima gets away with stealing literally everything he's made.

Before videogames became the huge mainstream thing it was today, people didn't pay attention to them. Devs could steal art, plots, whatever, no one would get sued since the copyright owners had no idea the game even existed. It wasn't until they became popular among normies that people started pointing this stuff out. A good example is Earthbound.

Back when it released, it was mostly ignored even by gamers. The obvious music theft wasn't even touched on. Then once it became the huge "HIDDEN SNES RPG GEM!!!" suddenly everyone can't wait to point out "DID YOU KNOW?".

Kojima had nothing to do with the MG1 boxart, moron. That was some in-house artist in Konami's marketing division that did traceovers of movie posters.

The fuck? Is that Dark Adventure? Why would they get rid of the live action photo for THIS?

>Kojima had nothing to do with the MG1 boxart

But he did have to do with copying Terminators for Snatcher, copying Trautman and using him as Campbell, and about 50 other things. The guy is a confirmed westaboo who picks and chooses things he likes from movies and puts them in his own games.

They're different flyers for different markets. Do you even know how marketing works? Only Konami of America used live-action photos for their arcade flyers. Konami of Japan used hand-drawn art instead.

Because that's how IP law and art works.

>"Carpenter, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, said one of the rights holders to his 1981 film 'wanted to also go after the video game Metal Gear Solid, which is kind of a rip-off of Escape From New York, too,' Carpenter said.

>No such legal action was taken. Why? 'I know the director of those games, and he's a nice guy,' Carpenter told THR. 'Or at least he's nice to me.' "

Based Carpenter.
