A Proposal: How Konami Can Possibly Win Back Some Credibility

Konami used to be a staple when it came to gaming in the 80's and throughout the mid 90's, and that much goes without saying.

The Chart Game

I remember as a kid, many many moons ago, of just walking into a toy store or department store and purchasing a game. Give them money, they give me the game.
