I have to admit, that as a kid, I liked the MSX-Gids the most.

When looking through those PDFs, it's striking that they were quite critical about the MSX-standard from the beginning. Already in issue 6 they nearly advised their readers to convert to IBM PC, haha.

What was attractive to this particular magazine for you compared to the others?

I have very little personal experience with MSX. It's heydays were a little before my time so it's quite hard for me to get a good picture of the MSX within Dutch game history.

If you want to know something about Dutch (or other) MSX game history, please just ask.

Good question. Probably because it was kind of a hobbyist magazine. It didn't look professional at all and covered a very wide variety of MSX-related topics. Half of the magazine was dedicated to listings, many of them too long to type in, but still enjoyed looking at the dodgy screenshots and descriptions. I loved their game reviews, still think Nemesis III looked amazing in black and white.

I guess its messy structure and raw looks were appealing to me.

My favourite was MCCM and its two predecessors Smile.

Used to browse through them for game reviews with pictures, type in listings, and I loved the Kort & Krachtig and Art Gallery sections. Later I also read a lot of the programming articles (Noorder Baken comes to mind in particular).

I would say my second favourite was Sunrise Magazine (yeah, a diskmagazine Smile).

But MSX Gids was also nice to read, with its characteristic yellow cover, I still have a folder full of them.
