After the C64, I asked my parent to buy me an Atari ST. I can not remember why we choosed this computer, surely for the MIDI built in possibilities.

We bought it in Paris, in a store called « Electron » (porte de Champeret). Here is a commercial from this period.
I can remember my first game. It was called « Arena » and was a sport game.
The game was nice. Huge sprites. Unfortunately I had many crash while playing and while using the computer. When an atari ST crash it display « bombs ».
So we brought it back and I asked for an Amiga instead. Why having changed my mind ?
This is because I saw an Amiga in a friend meanwhile. Story in the next article.
Demos of that time
On the same time on Amiga, the first demos were released.
