The babe from Phantis!
Beware of the color spill though... Wouldn't want that on your clothes. ;)

I saw WW today, raised my glass to him and he smiled.
Unfortunately forgot to talk to him and he was gone pretty fast (and I thought I did brush my teeth well). Smile

Hideo kojima of course!
I would be very interested to talk to him and learn about his early konami years.What tools did they use to make metal gear.Maybe ask if source code of game exist.Talk about what his programing team did back then (sketch of graphics,custom interrupt handler,and why are all konami games driven by the vdp interrupt).Also ask him anything related to the games he made.

Second i would choose martos and ask him about his notorious cracks and how he managed to crack and adapt many gamesSmile

Hmmm, I've been living my whole life without hearing about Wammes Witkop. The other ones are legends but maybe mr Witkop is a local hero in NL ?

Yes, he's a veteran.
He was the chief editor of the (Dutch) MSX Computer Magazine back in the days.

..and later on he was the publisher.. until MCCM ended (somewhere around 1998 or so, dunno) MCCM had a professional publisher with some 68 pages, some in color..

..until he pulled the plug, but then again there was not much to write about anymore in those days, it was in the dark-ages of MSX. At some point (disk)magazines were writing about other (disk)magazines who were writing about other (disk)magazines.
