Personal Gaming history
Handheld/Tabletop games:

Some handheld and tabletops were in our family when I was young.

Handhelds we had:

Tabletops we had:

Commodore 64:

I bought a C64 because a friend of mine bought one and showed me how much fun it was. We also both started coding this machine in assembly. Some half games and some demos.

The games I played most:


I moved from the C64 to the Amiga 500 because of the processing power and better graphics.

The games I played most:

Nice note is that a cable could be made to play "Stunt Car Racer" with two computers against each other. This cable was connetced to each parallel port of both AMIGAs.

When I started programming demos the first ones for under my own "scene" name GMS. After two DSE-CREW asked me to code demos for them in exchange for receiving games because they had a good "swapper".
After writing three demos/intros for the DSE-CREW I switched to another group called MANOWAR. Reason was because I knew more people in that group and I was not the only coder (programmer) anymore.
When I left MANOWAR because we split up due to college, I made one more Demo with a friend at that time which called himself KGB.

Demos I made ordened by group and chronilogical order:

Group: GMS
Demo 1: Moving Rasters
Demo 2: Kawasaki Demo

Demo 4: Dual Scroll
Demo 5: Sineline

Demo 6: Roundabout
Demo 7: Bongo Night
Demo 8: Multi Scroller
Demo 9: Trailer
Demo 10: Black/White
Demo 11: Logo Trace
Demo 12: Big Bobs
Demo 13: Manoracer
Demo 14: TopScroll
Demo 15: SineScroll
Demo 16: Corvette
Demo 17: Roundabout 2
MegaDemo: Manowar Mega Demo 1

Demo 18: Moire-Move

All demos can be downloaded on the following disks:
GMS demos disk 1
GMS demos disk 2

Besides writing Demos I also owned a BBS at that time for Amiga software called GMS-BBS. This never became very big but it was fun. I used Ami-Express as BBS software. This BBS ran on a Amiga 2000 with external 170 MB 5.25 inch HD.

PC (Windows):

PC games were never my thing. I preferred playing on a machine build just to play games. On TV with a joystick is better in my opinion.

  • Colin McRae Rally 2.0
  • Leisure Suit Larry - Love For Sail!
  • World Of Warcraft (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game)
