Konami, what happened to you?
You were even continuing to knock it out the park not so long ago with the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania, Pro Evolution Soccer and Silent hill and then bam, suddenly you are no longer the Konami that we know and love.
Where did it go wrong? What happened to you?
Losing Hideo Kojima, cancelling Silent Hills, the announcement of moving primarily into mobile, pretty much only concentrating on Pro Evo and MGS and then the allegations of treating employees like dirt have really definitely not helped with the reputation of the company. Also, letting IP's from both yourself and Hudson Soft remain dormant is dam annoying.
Come on Konami, get with it again. I mean damn, you even have a cheat code named after you. A cheat code that no one growing up in those days will ever forget Up, Up Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right B A. People are still inserting it into games and websites now, that is how much your legacy means to people.
Sadly now that legacy is quickly disappearing and I for one am saddened about that.
