Konami came under fire in 2015 when, for a number of reasons, they canned ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' and Creator/HideoKojima left Konami because they had given him a hard time. Following that, Konami announced their departure from console gaming to focus on mobile gaming and a larger focus on its non-video gaming domestic efforts, namely pachinko and slot machines -- a move that has left a sour taste in many fans' mouths, especially Western fans. While Konami still produces UsefulNotes/{{arcade game}}s, most notably the Franchise/{{BEMANI}} franchise, many Westerners find no relevance in such games due to a combination of NoExportForYou and an overall decline in arcade games in the West. However, it was [[http://throwingdigitalsheep.com/konami-exiting-triple-a-space/ reported]] [[https://youtu.be/wAeD6BR9e5k?t=480 that]] the rumors "departure from console gaming" is false and they are [[https://www.konami.com/jobs/en/career/spe/mgs_en.php hiring]] for a "new Metal Gear" project. Konami later announced a [[https://youtu.be/QwkvVWTS7OM pachinslot machine based on Metal Gear Solid 3]] as well as [[https://youtu.be/QwkvVWTS7OM Metal Gear Survive]],a [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Spinoff]] a co-op survival action game.

* EasyModeMockery: Most of their games would refuse to let the player see the true or full ending unless he or she was playing on the hardest difficulty.

* EasyModeMockery: Most of their games would refuse to let the player see the true or full ending unless he or she was playing on the hardest difficulty. Which makes it even harder to play since most Konami games are NintendoHard.

* NintendoHard: Most of their games fall under this. And to top it all off, they won't even let you [[EasyModeMockery see the full game on the easiest difficulty]].
