Bomberman (originally called Dynablaster in Europe) is a video game universe originally created by Hudson Soft in 1983 and is now owned by Konami. As the title suggests, the game is about a man who uses bombs to destroy monsters. The series has been phenomenally successful now totaling over 70 unique video game titles in the franchise and has been supplemented with manga, anime, and a host of other forms of merchandise. The Bomberman franchise got its start on the MSX computer standard.

Personal

As a child, I never owned or even played any games in the Bomberman franchise. However, as an adult I became aware of the franchise, and now find the games to be very enjoyable. I primarily like them for their multiplayer features, but they often stand on their own as single-player games as well.
