Major compnay involved in the video game business. Konami has made many classics such as Metal Gear, Castlevania, Life Force, Gradius, and Contra. Some of their more recent work is Zone of Enders : 2nd Runner, Silent Hill 3, and Metal Gear Solid 2 : Substance.
Konami is better at making video games than Capcom and Electronic Arts.
1.)Japanese word literally meaning "small wave".
2.)The name of a videogame company that has been known throughout its history to release high-quality videogames of all kinds of genres and systems. Konami is particularly well-known for such games as:
*Zone Of Enders
*Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
...among MANY other titles throughout its history, a lot of which happened to be pre-licensed. Konami should not be forgotten for having released a LOT of arcade games during the 80's, including pre-licensed games like The Simpsons & TMNT, both of which were awesome side-scrolling action games. Another arcade-only game, Vendetta, had a character named Hawk, who looked just like Hulk Hogan!
Today Konami continues to be the force behind multiple consoles, including the 128-bit systems and Gameboy Advance. Konami has a lot of cool titles, but their best happens to be Metal Gear Solid, ZOE, Silent Hill, and TMNT (well, this game flopped, but I sure do hope the sequel has much-needed improvements, as good as TMNT is).
"Konami rules. ^_^ but I miss the old wave logo they used to have above their logo....now it's replaced by a red-colored logo that resembles the end of a katana. -_- *sigh* I miss the old wave logo..."
A multi-national gaming company based in Japan. They make many popular games like Metal Gear Solid, Dance Dance Revolution, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game which are popular games and made their company affulent.
On the back of my cards I see "Konami" in white letters!
Lets go play Konami's game involving lots of coordination, DDR!!
A game company based in Japan. They were once a top-notch full fledging game publisher and developer, producing innovative and fun video game titles. However, at the peak of 1997, Konami lost it's edge to other high developing game companies. Despite innovative titles during it's recent years, like Metal Gear Solid and DDR
(Dance Dance Revolution), they failed to suffice as a high profile company outside of the occasional Castlevania release. Konami's creative games lost theier impact: Metal Gear Solid was hampered and withered some because of multiple "rehashes" such as the 2 different "Special Edition" releases such as MGS2:Sons of Liberty" and the re-release of their first game for the Gamecube
, "MGS: Snake Eater". DDR has practically died thanks to over-marketing the arcade dancing game, not attracting enough arcade-goers (including regular players) with lack of any new innovation as far as gameplay goes as the versions went on (freeze steps were introduced, but were created and made famous first by Andamiro's Pump it Up
), and lack of any sort of support from those who were dancing on Pump it Up
, a game made by "rival" company Andamiro (based in Korea). Thanks to the last reason, diehard DDR addicts and Konami fanboys formed a small army to bash ...
Please input the Konami code.
The best video game company. They have made great games like suikoden
and meta gear solid
. They also made a really fun game in the early 1990's that is about Buster Bunny and his adventure to save his friends. The people at konami are very talented and can make any game good.
If the game has konami's name on it, I'll look into it.
Game company that ignores their excellent Snatcher
series in favor of the inferior MGS
, primarily because it appeals more to idiot American fanboys who watch DBZ
These fanboys, along with their faggy DDR
playing counterparts, are now Konami's primary source of income.
The only really good series this company still has is Silent Hill
