(re: re: does anybody have any old computer magazines they loved reading)
Growing up in New Zealand, we got a lot of British computer mags which were brilliant – a lot of humour and jokes in them, usually very funny stuff, and at that stage the British made games were awesome, so good coverage too. My favorites were Computer and Videogames, The Games Machine and The One. I used to love sending in tips/cheats for games and seeing my name in print! I threw out all my old gaming mags about 5 years ago, I had boxes and boxes of them – something I regret now.
When I was 10 or so, I used to go to the library and get out all the old Computes! and I loved them. However, the Computes I got out were the ones (when Compute first started up) that had game listings in them that you typed in to make your own games.
Since then, in the last generation of consoles I got nearly every single issue of N64 magazine (another British mag) which is the best gaming mag I have ever read, and I still have every issue in great condition too. The humour was awesome, the artwork breathtaking, and the game exclusives were awesome too. Sadly they lost all the good writers and art editor and now NGC magazine (as its called) is terrible.
