Welcome to the club of C64 owners, I'm really curious about your opinion about the differences between our favourite games like Blue Max, etc. in these 2 brilliant systems. ;)

There I agree......IMHO they were the two best systems of the era.....with the Atari of course being 3 years older and thus the most amazing one of the two ;);););)

But guys.....I expected you guys to make more fun of me.....I'm disappointed  ;D ;D

I got some extra turbo card thing with the set and the seller demonstrated it, makes loading of games a lot easier and most important MUCH faster....

I think the MSX Konami games were the best Home Computer games of the 80s

I dont have my C64 anymore, but i may have a power cartridge in the attic somewhere.

at one point in time i also had the Final cartridge III which was more advanced than this one.

LOL......


Not sure what that turbo cart I got with the system is....it's a small PCB without a case...

KCS still exists by the way !

MSX was old when it was released.....I haven't played a lot of games on them I admit, but what I've seen didn't impress me a lot. I had moved to  the 16/32 bits era by then...
I also knew absolutely no-one who owned one....

Can you list 10 of the best games on MSX Patrick, want to check them out because I -am- ready to believe you ;)

@Chris....sorry mate, you know the final answer to everything will always be.......42 :)

the games I remember from my MSX:

- Track & Field series (like the arcade game)
- Yie ar Kung Fu 1 en 2
- Knightmare
- King's Valley
- Athletic Land
- Comic Bakery
- Ping pong
- Goonies


those are all Konami titles, there were many more I can't think of right now

Off course I played Jet set Willy and Manic Miner, BC 2 Grog's revenge, Boulder dash, Chucky Egg, Auf Wiedersehen Monty, O Shit (=pacman), Oil's Well and other titles. But the quality of Konami was very good

Now that I think of it, the Activision titles were very good too, Beam Rider, Pitfall 2, Ghostbusters, etc

My friend had a C64, but I remember it as been very sloppy games

Funny you mention T&F as first because that is the game I always relate to MSX. I think it was demoed a lot (Firato maybe ?) then ?

Problem is......I don't like T&F and similar games... :)

Apart from Goonies no other title says anything to me, but I'll see if I can watch some videos...

Back to the C64:

That is one fucking big box for a floppy disk !


(At Atari they were called floppy disk DRIVE......:)

I plan on doing a nice video comparing the systems :)
