MasonicGamer.com: Ah the good old days when Konami didn’t suck. Konami were one of my favourite developers back in the day, perhaps my second favourite 3rd party developer after Capcom. Games such as Contra, ISS, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Silent Hill and Castlevania were some of my most loved games growing up but sadly that Konami is long ago.
The Konami of today is very different to the one we saw in the 90′s, with all due respect you could argue the only good stuff Konami put out are Metal Gear Solid and Pro Evolution Soccer. Metal Gear Solid is too far up with own ass and has not been the since Metal Gear Solid 3 whilst Pro Evolution Soccer looks laughable compared to FIFA in every area. Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 showed some signs of the series getting back on track so maybe there’s hope.
None of that matters however, we’re here to talk about CLASSIC Konami and one of my favourite games of all time, the wonderful Mystical Ninja Staring Goemon for the Nintendo 64.
