Konami is bringing power to the people — well, as long as you're a gamer. The publisher has released a "heritage game survey" that asks fans which IPs they would like to see brought back into production.
The list has a wide variety of games to choose from, ranging from popular titles like Castlevania and Contra, to little-known games like Sparkster and International Track and Field. The quiz also goes a bit further, asking survey-takers what platforms they would like to play selected games on.
Participants in the survey have an extra incentive: if selected by Konami, a lucky few can receive up to $200 in Amazon retail vouchers.
There are some strange omissions, however: two of Konami's most popular IPs, Metal Gear and Silent Hill, are missing entirely.
While there is no word as to what Konami plans to do with their survey results, let alone reissue any of the IPs, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for them to attempt to pander to fans.
Despite the success of the Metal Gear and Silent Hill franchises, Konami hasn't been doing so hot: the company has faced a steep financial decline in their console sector. They've even branched out into the world of pachinkos or Japanese gambling machines, with a Castlevania-themed twist in an attempt to branch out from the strictures of games for consoles.
Whether or not Konami decides to bring back any of these IPs, the survey itself is a nice trip down memory lane.
