Carpenter is no stranger to the gaming world, both as a fan and his influence on the arts.

In the past he has also praised other video games such as Zero Horizon Dawn and Far Cry 5.
John Carpenter is one of the most influential film directors with a vast body of work. Among his most iconic films are Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York and Big Trouble in Little China. He is also an accomplished composer, having crafted the musical score for most of his films.
