Desert Dream and Pha-Q/Scoopex. Wow, I can still remeber the sense of discovery of something completely new and exciting! Those really were great times

Wow, Juice: great one! :D (expecially considering that statix was quite of a youngster when he coded it)

i discovered and started to collect Demoz when i was about 9 years old back in 1987...on c64 ofcoz back then.! in my young lameness i even bought em...lol...so-called-public-domain-disks...i browsed the disk-lists back then,skipped all disks without demos/intros on them and spent all my money i had put aside on the demo-disks.!!
..i even started to code in basic,which didn´t lend me anywhere at all,coz i was hardly missing the math at age of 9/10 ;) ...after laming around with some intromakers i discovered i would have to learn assembler to do demos myself..!
...after i saw RSI-Megademo at a local Store several times,i got myself my first Amiga500 in 1991.! And after having seen many many intros and demos on it (that was what i got my amiga for ;) ) ,i discovered a good friend of mine with whom i used to go skating or doing some graffiti was also into coding in assembler....he then gave me some helping lecture and a sourcecode containing a simple copper-list...that was the point i started to code in assembler myself...finally..!! :) ...that was about 2 weex in front of The Party and so i got my Eyes on Alcatraz - Odyssey about 3-4 weex later...that one boosted my ambitions to do it myself immensely.!!

^^thats what i call "in-the-mood-to-answer".! LOL

The first PC-Demo i remember was "Melon Dezign - I feel like a Computer" (as an old Amigian i downloaded the known-names first ofcoz,hehe...) about 3 years ago,hehe :=)
If you don't count c64 cracktros, one of the first "real" demos that i've seen was Technological Death by Mad Elks, and the first pc-demo was Ancient Plate by Norferin. Yeah, i know, kinda late for the party, happens. ;)

Probably some Atari ST cracktro on a friend's Atari, but the oldest one I can remember is the Union Demo, which is also the reason why I gave it a CDC.

I remember this like it was yesterday. I can almost smell the shop I was in watching this. 1985 I saw it so one year after release it seems.

Well yeah, Boing was indeed the first but for some reason i don't really count it as demo :)

I'm pretty sure there are a few topics about this already..

Anyways, not counting the obvious crack intros, the first ones I can remember seeing are Deathstar's Megademo and Music Invasion 2 by Jungle Command. Although there may have been some on the C64 before that.

Crack intros were what got me excited about the whole thing though. No idea about the first ones I saw on C64, but I remember many intros by German Cracking Service in front of my early games..

The first demoscene related stuff I saw was a massive amount of Amiga cracktros included with cracked games I used to play as a child. For example: Superfrog by Crystal & Melon Dezign.

One of the first PC demos I saw was Dreams of Destiny by Suburban Creations.

Now you made me feel nostalgic... ;)

"Voxel" by Bas van Galen ;)

no, seriously I forgot. But I remember being really impressed by "Heartquake" from Iguana, which I got on the Assembly-CD I bought back then...
The ones that made the biggest impression on me back then were probably "The fulcrum" and "Heaven7". Remembering the atmosphere in the hall at MS98 when "The fulcrum" ran gives me goosebump all over :)
