Personally, I think Games TM is a much better mag than Edge at the minute - Edge seeems to have got so far up its own backside thinking it's the best mag around, most of the articles are pretty rubbish self-indulgent rants.

That and Games TM has a retro section of course :)

I only read gamesTM for Retro and the odd article that takes my interest such the recent one on the DS Lite.

I buy Edge, Games TM and Retro Gamer every month.
Occasionally I buy PC Zone, PC Gamer, Official PS2, NGC and Computer Buyer/Shopper but nowhere as frequently as the top three.

Rcently however I realised that the main draw for me regarding Edge is the 'Making Of' features followed by the games reviews, and with GamesTM it's the Retro section followed by the games reviews so I am seriously thinking about quitting those two and just sticking with Retro Gamer.

I can always catch up on game reviews from the numerous specialist web sites that cater for that and only that.

I do like GamesTM from what i've seen of it, if i was gonna get a mag about other gaming this would be the one as i really like the style and the retro section

Just in my advancing years i hardly play PC games so much, just a few just because i dont have time what with wife/house stuff and a social life. Back in my single days or even school days i would have been buying this mag month in month out it was out back then

Never bought a copy of the actual GamesTM, but I did get the Retro Anthology.

Edge I bought when it first started printing for the first 14 issues or so, when it was drooling over the 3DO. Found it self indulgent then and still do. I remember Amiga Power (I think) saying that the only reason why Edge was sold in a plastic bag was so that people in Smiths' wouldn't read it before buying and realise how crap it is.

Silly me threw those Edges away about 4 years ago. Wonder how much I could've got on eBay for them now...
