Nom: the split (screen, palette, sprite etc.)
Why: it opened so many things for the demoscene, dunno who invented it (or rather: who found out about it), but it's an essential discovery

LOL! Very original as nomination Big smile

Nom: Sunrise's CF interface
Why: While Sunrise as a whole was already mentioned, esp this device was so damn handy when it came out. In a time when MSX disks (720k) are rare or simply dying, an MSX-PC swappable mass storage medium was simply the right thing at the right time.

Nom: the release of Usas
Why: graphically splendid Platformgame with great, and often covered, music. One of Konami's most decent games, if you ask me.

Nom: Metal Gear Solid series
Why: (I'm in a Metal Gear mood, but...) the PSX installment of this game - and the success and prequels/sequels that followed it - earned the MSX respect all over the world and gave the MSX community some well-deserved self-confidence. Many people (re)discovered the MSX thanks to this game, and Hideo Kojima did his share of MSX namedropping as well. Of immense promotional value.

Did they do that in 2005 already? AFAIK they started that this year... making it an invalid nominee... We'll do 2005-2015 in 10 years! Smile

Your nomination of SymbOS is, therefore, unfortunately invalid as well...

well, snout, in that case...

Nomination: the release of Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Why: first of all, it is the last game Konami ever released on MSX (as far as I know, correct me if I'm wrong). Moreover, it is arguably their best MSX game (maybe together with SD Snatcher, and a case can be made for Space Manbow). More even than the first Metal Gear, it established the genre of Tactical Espionage. All elements of Metal Gear Solid's gameplay are already present (the radar, the plot developments, temperature changes, crawling, the ladies' room) and Konami really pushed the limits of MSX2 with this game, both of which it didn't do with the first Metal Gear. And it's Konami's only 4-megarom.

arf... ohwell, I doubted that already... ._.

Nom: The rise of structural FUD in the revival years
Why: in terms of scenedynamics, the last few years have been quite turbulent, with ppl getting annoying, ppl causing stirs, ppl slamming initiatives, ppl suggesting unfounded assumptions, ppl sticking their nose in eachother's business, etc..

ok, at the magical "3000" it's time for zZ Tongue
