The publisher appears to be trying to cut costs but at this rate, Konami may be no more before long. If that happens, what sort of memories will you have?
Mgs 3 on ps2 still one of my favorite games Or to be more exact I would say climbing the ladder/unlocking the patriot and destroying everyone lol
Pretty much everything Kojima ever directed mgs, zone of enders, snatcher, castlevania, ect Silent Hill series, contra to
Beating Symphony of the Night for the first time on the original ps1. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Fondest memory... Up up down down left right left right B A
Symphony of the Night One of the few games I actually completed twice. Quality
Not in order: MGS DDR Contra Suikoden ZoE Turtles in Time Castlevania Gradius Silent Hill
What will be my fondest memory? The part where the people responsible for firing Kojima realize what they've done and as the company goes under they hold hands and jump from the top of the Konami building.
Contra, Castlevania and Silent Hill 2.... Suikoden...wow, does this mean rumors of a new Suikoden were all false http://www.dualshockers.com...
Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, Suikoden, Contra, Zone of the Enders, TMNT, Gradius, Winning Eleven. Let's not forget the Konami Code.
Too much to hope for ps2 collection on ps3/4 :( I wish it wouldn't be forgotten, I wants it to livvveee
Sigh I'd take jus 3 for a full 60 on ps4
Contra, MGS1,3 and 4, Sunset Riders, Suikoden series (specially 2), Silent Hill 1 and 2, Symphony of the Night, TMNT.
Man Konami will always have a place in my heart because of Buster Busts Loose and Contra Bucky O Hare and of course TMNT and others on my SNES! Some of the best times of my life! I'm going to cry now.
While I could go on about Metal Gear, Contra, TMNT and Snatcher... Suikoden II will be forever the greatest game Konami made in my eyes. I didn't even play it till a few years ago, but now IMO, it's the strongest work they ever produced. That said, BURN IN HELL, Konami!!! Your negligence with your franchises is unforgivable. Killing ZoE before it's time. No home console Contra for 11 years. running Silent hill into the ground. The fact that we haven't seen a Suikoden game in 9 YEARS is inconceivable! All you cared about was Metal Gear and Castlevania. I hope another company like Platinum Games buys up all your franchises so us fans can get what we want. Get Bent, Futhermuckers!!!
Know what your talking about first....Konami wanted to make a ZOE 3, Kojima did not....Either way it was not a major seller, sold poorly on PS2 and the HD collection sold pretty poorly also...So thank Kojima for not wanting to do it, since even though it wasn't a major seller Konami really wanted to.....There was also a Contra on XBL/PSN around 2009-2011 Uprising was a Contra game, had the theme and all
If Konami wanted another ZoE, they could have had someone ELSE do it. It didn't have to be Kojima. This was part of the reason why I hate Konami so much now. They were WAY too overly reliant on Kojima. If Kojima wasn't doing it, they wouldn't do it at all. Even if it was amazing and had plenty of fan support. I wasn't counting downloadable Contra games. If it's downloadable, that means that Konami had no faith in it. I was under the impression that Uprising was a spin off. Not a mainline Contra game. Haven't played it, though. Was it any good?
What I don't understand is, why remove Kojima's name from the Phanton Pain box? Besides Metal Gear, Konami really couldn't make the transition from 2d to 3d. Castlevania remains one of my absolute favorite "open world" platformers, and Silent Hill 2 stands as my favorite survival horror game, but besides Metal Gear, Konami couldn't rekindle the magic of their classic two dimensional titles in three dimensions. Their earliest attempts at creating a satisfying Castlevania in 3d was a triumphant misfire, an uninspired Devil May Cry clone that felt like it was following trends and not setting them. People love to hate on Konami, but one look at their portfolio of titles, and I'd rather they stick around for the long haul. I just don't get why they sat on all of these successful franchises. Ask fans what are they interested, and they will talk your ear off, it is worth the effort to reanimate dead classics, and your core fan base will always appreciate it. This is a supremely disturbing trend in video games nowadays. So many famed companies crumbling under the weight of an mindless majority and what sells to the lowest common denominator. Silent Hill sold quite a bit, as did Castlevania, and Metal Gear as well. All three have something in common: they are all weird. People like when games take risks, none of the franchises felt "worn out"...until Silent Hill decided to dumb down its gameplay and fantastically innovative game concepts to a glorified corridor shooter (I suppose Konami wanted that Resident Evil 4 cash money) and Castlevania aspired to tedium and ubiquitous gameplay trends. The earliest iterations of those three games showed plenty of risk, and as the years passed, Konami became complacent. Metal Gear Solid has been the top performer in recent years, and they staked their entire company on one franchise and That Kojima Boy. What I wonder is, why no official word amidst all this second hand speculation? are they waiting until AFTER Phantom Pain releases to tell us the bad news? I just don't get it.
Suikoden 2 my goodNess I still got my copy one of the best rpgs that have ever touched my tv
One mirrion trwwooops.
Suikoden 1 and especially 2. Still my favourite JRPG to date.
Konami arcade games. That logo was something you looked for when cruising the arcades. There was always something special within the cab. Of course there's plenty of good console entries. I'm glad I got that MGS Legacy collection when I did!
Pretty much everything from the glory days, but as I'm seeing no love for it I'll go ahead and say this times 100000
To me Suikoden II was there crowning achievement. I also spent many hours immersed in I & III. I have fond memories playing their arcade games: Frogger, Contra, Yei Ar Kung Fun, Time Pilot, etc. I also enjoyed those game on early consoles like colecovision, Atari 2600, and c64. Of course there is the Castlevania series, SOTN standing out ahead of the rest. Metal Gear Solid blew me away when I bought it on launch day for the PS. Silent Hill I & II were wild, terrifying rides.. There are so many more. Damn this used to be one of the best publishers. Now they just need to be put down as they've screwed themselves so badly I don't see anything besides Phantom Pain in their future and with Kojima gone that IP is pretty much done. They've destroyed all of their other beloved IP's as well. So sad.
Metal Gear Solid 3 & Turtles in Time. There are many many others. But if I has to narrow it down, those 2 are 'it'.
Metal Gear Solid 1, Castlevania: Symphony of the night, Silent Hill 1 and 2... *sniff*
Johnny Sazaki and his pooping problems? I'll never forget those scenes in MGS.
The original Castlevania (one of the first games I ever saw) and playing Contra with my friends.
I will miss the PES series for sure. I hope another company pick it up and improve it.
Castlevania....I just hope if konami goes away that they are able to sell IPS to other companies that will do them justice.
oh also just the cool grey boxes from the nes days will always mean alot
Super castlevania, super probotector some of the best music in 16 bit gaming also super parodius and pop n twin bee.
Yugioh Championship series. I wish Vita would get a U.S release...
arcade classeics, winning 11/iss/pro, mgs. really hard to choose which were my favourite memories. ps1 days were also great for konami. but if i really had to choose then i guess it would be anything kojima related.
