"Losing Konami is like losing an old friend"

They stopped being my friend around 10 years ago already. The company was only a shadow of its former self..aside from MGS, Silent Hill and a very few Castlevania games that were still good they delivered not half as many great games anymore as back in the nineties.

So many great game series, IP's are lost now. =/

Twinbee, Gradius, Parodius, Contra, Castlevania, the series of great games they made with comic or cartoon licenses (TMNT and the Looney Tunes games as examples) Policenauts, ZOE, Track & Field, Goemon (Mystical Ninja), Sunset Riders and lets not even talk about the equally big number of Hudson Soft goodies like Bloody Roar or Bomberman that are dying together with the former self of Konami.

I remember going into Toys R Us and seeing Castlvania for sale on the NES and begging my mom to buy it.

Brought it home and instantly fell in love with the game. Couldn't wait to tell my friends at school about the game, no one believed me since the NES came with a poster that had only their 1st party games on it, at that time we all that those were the only games available for the NES.

But soon they came to the house and saw it was true.
