Gaming Magazines

Recommended Posts

The Time Ranger

Does anybody still read gaming magazines, I used to read Nintendo Official Magazine UK from about 03-05, young me couldn't get enough of nintendo news and reviews. Later I started reading GamesMaster and had a large stack of them over the years. I still remember their slogan, "The Master of Games since 1993."

 

I was in a bookshop recently and GamesMaster is still being published which is cool. Nowadays I use the internet for my gaming news, so I haven't picked up an issue in about 10 years now. I hope these magazines continue to be published, as much as I enjoy the internet I hope it doesn't put them out of business.

Last gaming magazine I bought/read was a Game Informer one just before the release of GTA V where they done an extensive preview. Of course back before the internet took off I used to buy them in my younger years when they used to have those PS1/PS2 demo discs. Those were the days.

I have a huge collection of ComputerGamingWorld then GamesForWindows spanning the 90s and 2000s...up until they had to fold.

So much history.  Half of those people ended up deep in the games industry.

 

I'll take some pics maybe.

I used to love getting those demos in the PS2 magazines. Good times. Who else remembers?

Really miss a lot of things about that era of gaming. Don't get me wrong, I love my PS4 and the graphics of today, but I'm just very fond of those times spent with my PS2.

I haven't bought any in a long, long time - space appears to be a premium as an adult and as much as i'd like to archive this stuff (I love video game history) I can't afford the commitment to storage. 

 

I remember getting all my info / cheats / hype from Sega Power and Mean Machines in the early 90s, looking at the top 10 games charts, reading reviews of new titles I couldn't afford, comparing player highscores in the back, coveting exotic imported games from Japan... I miss those early gaming days.

 

 

One might go so as far as to say it was a radical and wicked time, if one still wore shell suits

My first issue :

latest?cb=20100815062925

 

Sadly the time has come and gone for the mags, although I do occasionally read the paper version of PC Gamer, more for nostalgia than anything else. 

(The mag was so popular there's a database of the issues http://www.zzap64.co.uk/)

What are the chances of you posting a picture of an issue I actually had. I remember replaying the training mission from Blood Money again and again, good times.

Back in the mid-late 2000s,back when I didn't use internet as much as I do now,I often bought and read a local gaming magazine called PC Play,but they stopped making it back in 2009 (I made a collection of around 30-40 of them and I still have them).I don't really read any gaming magazines anymore,since I can find any info about videogames quickly on the internet.

I still buy a magazine practically every month, I buy the Gameplay.

 

It's decent enough.

Electronic Gaming Monthly was my go-to gaming mag back in the noughties, I especially loved Seanbaby's humorous articles (and now I love his work on Cracked). I moved on to the internet somewhere around 2010.

Standard Deluxe 59

I remember having a couple of old Game Pro(?) Magazines that came out around the time of True Crime LA and Midnight Club II. I think one even had highlights of Burnout 2 in it but I don't know what happened to them. I didn't know they still made game magazines anymore but I'm not so into video games as I used to be so I've fallen out of the loop.
