It's not like one year matters after that many. One doesn't have to check the wiki to check if the model he bought was available in the year he remembers Wink

What a nice thread!
1- what is the year when you bought your first MSX ?
2 - Which model?
I sold my C64 in April 1985 to buy a Sony HB-F75P for the gained money. Without disk drive of course.
3 - How old were you?
14
4 - Did you upgrade to MSX2?
Oh, yes. I couldn´t wait after I saw the Sony HB-F700D running a graphic program. This was in a shop in Stuttgart. There were five shops that I know that sold MSX stuff. What a glorious time!
As a student, it was to much money to buy a Sony with a monitor, so I worked in the afternoons and weekends to buy a

5 - If yes, what year? Which Model ?
Philips VG 8235 with a disk drive. It works with my ancient tv and didn´t needed a special monitor.
This was a big step in computer history for me. The drive allowed me to copy games, but I bought a lot of original software.

6 - Estimate how many originals games (or software) you bought at this time (in '80 '90) ?
>between 5 and 10 - >between 10 and 20? - >Between 20 and 30? >more than 30?
Much more than fifty, for sure.
7 - If you think about your first MSX, which title comes instantly to your mind?
The very first MSX game I played in a store was Athletic Land. I played Eggerland Mystery to dead, but the title that comes first to my mind was Battle Cross from Sony. I was so disapointed to burried such a lot of money for that crap. This was way before Nemesis times. Most time I spend with Creative Graphics.[/i]
8 - If you think about your first MSX2, which title comes instantly to your mind?
Of course Vampire Killer. I didn´t believe it, when I first saw the game. And I had to do mailorder. It was always a risk to buy a new game, as we all know, there was no internet that time and magazines had a big delay in reporting new games, if they did at all. Also Usas blowed my mind, and more than others: Designer.
9 - Did you leave the MSX at a time? For which computer ? and when?
I really worked and played a long time MSX only, until I bought a Playstation in 97 and a G3 Powermac in 1999. As I went to another town, I stored my MSX items in my parents house until I signed in msx.org and had to pick them up again in 2007. This way I never had owned a WIN/DOS computer. Lucky me, hm? But I´m sure my experience with the MSX shell made a lot of understanding DOS based machines easier.
10 - Do you think your current job, have something to do with the MSX?
I teach computer workshops using MSX computer and often use MSX items as subjects in our photographers lessons. Of course I had to do a lot of other things to earn money, but that´s a start. I studied and worked as a graphic artist before and that´s what I owe to MSX for sure.
11 - Please indicate your home country (When you bought your first MSX)
Southern Germany
And it wouldn´t be me, if I wouldn´t attach a photo.
I´m sure in a few years she will answer the third question with a zero.

I just read it and directly thought "that can't be accurate"... sorry, it's how my brain works ;-) Not very important indeed.
