For my second feature I’ll be examining the Contra series. Once the very definition of action games the series would eventually fade into obscurity for a number of years before seeing a resurgence with its PS2 installment. From the highs to the lows you’ll see a franchise born then die in a fire. How could such a thing have happened? I’ll be studying just that. Regardless, it should be a fun ride.
