It was a very close call, but after the Best MSX1 game ever, the Best MSX2 game ever and the Most underrated MSX game megapolls we decided the 6 winners of those polls had to compete on a frontpage poll to sort out which MSX game is the very best MSX game ever made once and for all. SD-Snatcher took the lead from the start, but the more votes came in, the closer Metal Gear got to SD-Snatcher. The popularity of Konami's Metal Gear Solid series definitely played a role in this one. In the end, SD-Snatcher managed to win with just 2 votes more than Metal Gear. Here are the full results to the poll:

  • 1. SD-Snatcher (23,20%)
  • 2. Metal Gear (22,95%)
  • 3. Mr. Ghost (15,02%)
  • 4. Penguin Adventure (13,68%)
  • 5. Maze of Galious (12,82%)
  • 6. Firehawk (Thexder 2) (12,33%)

A grand total of 819 votes were cast on this poll.

Our new poll is a bit related to the 21st anniversary of MSX. As of today, MSX is 21 years old, but how old were you when you first got an MSX? Let us know by voting on our new poll! Keep in mind that since our recent update only members can cast their votes on a poll. Don't you have an account at the MSX Resource Center yet? join us now!

It's all a matter of 'when is the poll over' .. if you wait another week MG will be the winner, if you wait another week, SD-natcher wins again .. Smile

But whoever would've won, Hideo is the real winner here ..

I got my first MSX in 1993, but my father bought an MSX when I was 9... I counted that... Is that OK? Smile

BTW: there's no way to comment on a poll at the moment... Another thing for the TODO list ;-)

I knew you will wait until SD-S leads again and will end the poll the same moment it happens !
It's not fair, but I don't care - I voted for SD-S myself, he he.

Twas a Stupid Poll.

I didn't want to vote for SD Snatcher, but really the other games although cool didn't stand much of a chance. My guess is that many felt like me (but instead they did not vote for SD Snatcher after all, yes, sorry, I am lame).

I mean, yeah, Mr. Ghost is a cool game. But compared to SD Snatcher? Pft... And Metal Gear??? Tsk! Metal Gear 2, yes, that is a very cool game. Battle between that one and SD-S is a fair one. Metal Gear 1 though...

What always amazed me about the first Metal Gear is how the F*** did they manage to make all of it fit in just 128KB (Map/GFX/Code/Music/Text) ???

Mucho respect to Konami for this !

I wonder if someone in particular still had to fraude the poll to this score. Wink

Sigh, BiFi, after nearly 10 years of MRC you still think we are manually changing the results of polls to make them fit our needs? We have more important things to do, thank you. We always start a new poll when we feel it's time for a new poll. It was the 21st anniversary of MSX and we thought 'lets do something with that!'. That's all.

Either way, as SD-Snatcher took a huge lead from the start and had already beaten Metal Gear in the Best MSX2 game ever megapoll I think no one can call these results unfair. Same goes for the 6 games that were selected to run for 'Best MSX game ever', they were the combination of previous megapolls and thus selected by all the visitors of the MRC. Just because your opinion differs from the results, doesn't mean the poll sucks, does it? Tongue
