It took me a long time, but I've finally accepted that Bomberman is one of those long-running franchises that I just don't like a whole lot. I've played a few and gotten mild enjoyment out of them, but they're just not an addiction for me the way they are some people. And you're right: they seem to appear on just about every system known to man. Even Switch got a Bomberman title as one of its earliest releases, despite Konami essentially being on life support at the time.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

I've never gotten into them, either. In their defense, I never played one when I was young and the closest to it that I did was NES adventure Robowarrior, which is by the same company and also named Bomber King and Wikipedia has a tab at the bottom of the page that seems to put it in the Bomberman family. Either way, I did not like that game. Not at all. Borrowed it from a friend thinking it was like Zelda. Not...exactly. Had to give my friend credit, though. He actually played through the entire thing. I might have made it off the first screen, but I don't know if I even did that much.

It's an acquired taste, I guess. I'm not particularly a fan of some of the 3D games as the movement and the angle of the arenas feel awkward. They make dodging bombs a little harder when you're trying to position your character.

I head spaceshit noises.

Like others, I also have tried and failed to like this series. I've heard so much good about this Saturn version over the years though, and that sprite work is so good.

There's one Bomberman game that I loved: Bomberman 64, which barely feels like Bomberman.
