From the initial 78 nominees, there 26 have moved on to this round.

Right here you can find a list of all nominees that are still in the competition with the reasons why they were nominated. To make it even easier for you, the nominees are listed in the order of the votesheet below. Please read it first, carefully, and don't hesitate too look back at this list later on. Got it? Great!

Below is a list of 13 pairs. Your job is to divide three points between each pair. So with the pair

option A | option B

the following scores are valid:

3 - 0 ;option A | option B
2 - 1 ;option A | option B
1 - 2 ;option A | option B

Its sad to see that people don't think emus are important. I don't see how people can think a piece of hardware that doesn't have anything to do with MSX except that it fits in the cartridge slot can be even remotely as important as an emulator that has increased MSX interest and helped developers to do fantastic MSX applications. But I also was disappointed when Bush won the presidential elections....

That said, I like democracy, so here is my vote:

3-0 Release of MSX2 - Sunrise Swiss developing the GFX9000
2-1 Sunrise - hardware - FAC Soundtracker
3-0 MSX disk drive - Metal Gear Solid series

dvik: look at it from this pov: classic msx events defined the 'MSX', emus confirm 'MSX' these days .. ^_^
And thus, the classic events are prolly seen as more important..

I'll surprise nobody if I say that I completely agree with dvik about the emulators.

And as the eviction of blueMSX is the result of too many 0-3 votes, although until now I've used most 1-2 or 2-1 to nuance my vote, I've decided to use now this bad methode ... Of course, it's only a game Smile

wolf_: I agree, except that I think GFX9000 is sortof in the same category as emus. Its a (relatively) new thing that doesn't have anything at all todo with real MSXing. Besides, the poll is about the important events between 85-05, not between 85-90.

But I also was disappointed when Bush won the presidential elections....I suppose that part of the problem is that for emus to be of any use at all, you first need the hardware to have been invented, and then the software you would've used on that hardware. The emulator simply is last on the foodchain. While that can be a good thing at times, it does mean there's nothing to eat if the amoeba die. Tongue Just consider the MSX1 the amoeba, the MSX2 the earthworm and blueMSX king of the jungle! There's pride in that too! Wink
