From the forum - Retro Gamer turns 100

Post by Stuart@retrogamer » Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:42 am

As I’m sure many of you are aware, RG celebrates its centenary next month. So if you fancy leaving us a message please do so here.

We'll try our best to get them all in the magazine.

Cheers chaps.

Just to say a huge well done and thank you for keeping such a niche magazine going. Here's to the next 100!

One hundred issues in and still no closer to resolving the thorny issue of "What is retro?"!

Thank you for keeping my love of gaming magazines alive, which started way back in the 1980's with C&VG, YS & Crash. Every month I learn something new about old consoles, handhelds, games & the people who made them & all this for a fiver a month. I've been with Retro Gamer since the very first issue & they're all on a bookshelf in my bedroom looking rather nifty. Cheers guys & keep up the good work. It really is appreciated.

Congrats on 100 issues RG! Despite my whining for less "speccy", I have enjoyed every issue I purchased and often go back and re-read stuff. Here's hoping for 100 more, when Xbox Live is in a "remember the 00's" article!

CONGRATULATIONS on reaching your Centenary! Someone ought to inform the Queen...!

First noticed RG after the covermount was ditched. And haven't missed an issue since. Not everything covered has appealed (my interest is mainly non-console), but it has nevertheless been fascinating to read whatever the topic. My only disappointment is that my Reader Review of Batman will never make an appearance as RG's Darran beat me to it.

As the retro scene will always be around, here's to the next 100 years/issues of smashing RG coverage!

Congratulations to the whole RG team on getting to that BIG 100!! Special note must be made to Martyn Carroll for starting it all off and Darran Jones for the awesome job done since RG was rescued. Roll on issue 200 :-)

RG is my second favourite mag ever (Zzap!64 being No.1). Well done everyone involved. If we could get rid of those pesky consoles, add a few more computers (excluding PCs) and have some more hardware features it would be perfect :-)

Why are you mentioning this? The magazine's less than 10 years old - it's definitely not retro ;-)

I still remember being gobsmacked seeing issue 1 in WH Smith thinking, what a brilliant idea for a magazine, though it'll probably not get beyond a few issues.

Thanks for producing the only mag I read cover to cover since Your Sinclair joined the choir immortal back in '93.

Here's to the next 100.
