Five weeks ago we started looking for the most underrated MSX game. After the nominations and five rounds of mega-polling in our forums, four games remained to battle on our frontpage poll. After 180 votes, these are the results:

  • 1. Mr. Ghost (33.33%)
  • 2. Firehawk (Thexder 2) (28.89%)
  • 3. Magical Kid Wiz (20.56%)
  • 4. Higemaru (17.22%)

Now, the time has come to find out which is the very best MSX game ever. The top 2 of the Best MSX1 game ever megapoll, the top 2 of the Best MSX2 game ever megapoll and the top 2 of the most underrated MSX game megapoll will now meet in a frontpage poll to find out which one is the very best of them all. You can decide which game is going to become the very best MSX game ever. Happy voting!

Estimated order of poll results:

  • SD-Snatcher
  • Maze of Galious
  • Metal Gear
  • Penguin Adventure
  • Firehawk (Thexder 2)
  • Mr. Ghost

I will not make any estimates on numbers. Smile

The best MSX game ever would be Solid Snake or SD-Snatcher... that's obvious to anyone.

uh, yeah...
This is kinda funny... but not HAHA funny(!)

IMHO this will not present a fair and accurate look on what game is really voted to be the best MSX game, besides personal faves.

Why are games like MG2, YS, XAK, IC etc. etc. missing? just because they didn't make it in the best msx2 game poll? So now we have excelent Konami games competing with some other brands/msx1 games/underated games... pretty unfair I think.

But all and all the winner will still be SD-snatcher, no doubt (just check the stats)
well I've voted for Maze Of Galious (surprised??) I had the best time playing that one!! (yeah, MSX1 baby)

Well, the result is too predictable. SD-Snatcher will win with at least half of the votes.

I agree - even if we will find the most unfair way of comparing, SD Snatcher should win.
Just because it's the best.
