It's hard to choose for me. I picked RPGs, but for me they would kinda be tied with Shooters though.

Don't really know, but chose RPG because of Metal Gear and Xak... But I never really play them... Actually, I hardly ever play an MSX game...

hmm, unlike for some newer consoles or pc, I never had a game genre bias for MSX, so, "Other" for me.

Nothing beats Aleste 2 and Space Manbow. Sorry SD Snatcher and Xak... Wink

even though the hardware was hardly optimized for it, shmups all the way.

I'm missing the tactical espionage game. A genre so groundbreaking on MSX and beyond that it shouldn't have been left out.

the old metal gear games? IMO they fit into action rpg category.

that'd be rpg here... It'd be silly to add a genre for just two games...

My hardware knowledge is limited but I'd say MSX was very well optimized for shmups (and platformers).

all the good shmups scroll like crap (I don't call that optimized hardware), but theyr'e still fun.

just out of curiosity, how would you qualify king's valley (1 and 2)?
puzzle at first sight, although platformers would also suit.

best genre will be platformer with some puzzles and rpg elements (character building)

Thanks for the clarification. I never cared about scrolling. I was talking about sprites and the VDPs ability to handle many of them at once.

the vertical scrollers scroll smooth enough... What's not smooth on the Alestes?

I'd say it's more a puzzler than a platformer, because you won't be able to finish a level with just platformin' Wink

I voted for others. I dont really have a specific preference for games on msx. I always enjoyed Herzog a lot, you could consider it a strategy game. But also shmups, platformers and rpgs were favorite. Sporting games and puzzle games were less my thing.

Ys,XAK,Illusion city,Golvellius,Hydlide,emerald dragon,dragon slayer...and many many more...are superb games, MSX for me is the RPG system,and i love arcades but for me on MSX the RPG looks better than the arcades,regards.

Ok, so, this poll asks for you people's favourite category, and not for any runner-up positions. It's very well possible that sport games remain at 0%. Still, I wonder how fair this is considering the hours I've put in Konami's Ping Pong! And then there are racing games (F1 Spirit, Road Fighter, Hyper Rally etc.) that should belong to sport games too..

Oh well..

Konami's Ping Pong is the only game I know of that you can play by ear only and still win (even at level 5).

the insane amount of enemies thrown on screen at once...
...although that gives it a certain charm. I mean, in modern shmups they do it on purpose.

aleste 2 I'm not entirely sure of; aleste though, sure.
