Hi,

My name is Xavi. I came from Zaragoza, Spain. I wrote my introduction at the Spanish forum, but I want to write a small one in English, too.

My first computer was a Philips VG-8020 that my parents brought to home in 1985. I spend countless hours playing with my MSX. I only had a few cartridges (The Goonies, Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2 and Coaster Race) and some cassettes, which I played to death. I remember fondly a summer with a cousin of mine that had a Philips VG-8235 with Vampire Killer and a lot of disks with many games: Zanac-Ex, Maze of Galious, Soccer and others that now I don't remember well, because I was 10 or so. I was so impressed by Vampire Killer that I became a huge fan of the series and I have played almost all its releases.

With the MSX, I started programming and playing videogames, something that has last since today. I think that period of my life was one of the biggest reasons to become a software engineer.

So far, I have been playing games with emulators, but now I want to buy a MSX2 and complete my small collection of cartridges with the games that impressed me most. Besides, if my children want to play with me, I think I will be really happy Big smile .

I just want to say thanks to everybody in the forum, because every time I search for something about MSX I end up here Wink

Best regards,
Xavi

Welcome ukyo.
That´s exactly what I thought: Buy a MSX and complete my small collection of games that impressed me most.
Still collecting. Since 32 years.
