They are both based upon the era of ultraviolence within the 80's, the first clue is that Hotline Miami is actually set in Miami, but the general tone set by the excessive violence (or 'ultraviolence') and by the music is very similar e.g. and (skip to 2:40 if you have not completed the game yet.) As you can see they are both going for a very 80's vibe. I can't run a full analysis of 80's ultraviolence because sadly I am not old enough to have been able to watch films from the 80's when they were brought out and i've never got round to particularly watching many 80's action films. However of the couple I have seen (Arnold Schwarzenegger films spring to mind instantly), the 80's was a good era for fans of excessive violence in action movies. That is what I believe both the creators of Hotline Miami and Hobo with a Shotgun were going for when they made their game/film. Finally I'd also like to say that perhaps the most famous example of ultraviolence in films did not even come out in the 80's but actually the 70's with Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange', essential watching that.

"Hero worship comes in the form of the Hollywoodization of a person, where you attempt to tell someone's story but end up glorifying it instead. Remember the first trailer for Hotline Miami, starring the Pig Butcher? You know that part where it says based on a true story? Well that's true, sort of. It's based on true events in the sense that that trailer was actually a movie trailer from within the game's universe.

Part of Wrong Number's storyline will see you playing as Pig Butcher, the star of a new movie based on the events that took place in Hotline Miami. The movie is a '90s slasher take on those events, but the gameplay setup remains the same. You will go through the various stages, killing anyone that gets in your way. The difference here being that once the stage is over, the director yells cut and everyone is actually alive and well. At least, that's how this opening act played out with Pig Butcher."

Yeah, of course it's a joke and not really based on "true events that really occured." Although stranger things have happened. The game reminded me of Cocaine Cowboys and also the movie Drive. In fact, the director of Drive (Nicolas Winding Refn) is specifically thanked in the game's end credits. Drive is also a work of fiction.

TL;DR: you should watch the movie "Drive"

they said in an interview it was heavily inspired by both drive and cocaine cowboys!
