If print is dead, does that make RetroGamer a zombie? Happy 100th!

My most heartfelt compliments to the RG team, the freelancers, the forum members and everybody else that makes the magazine such a joy to read. I hope it is still being published long after the 360 and the PS3 start to be considered retro.

RG - a magazine that truly celebrates the wonderful divisiveness of gaming.

Hope to see a similar thread in another 7 and a half years!

When first hearing that such a magazine existed, it felt like a dream becoming reality: something that talked about our favourite classics and uncovered fascinating new tales of how they came about. Despite ups and downs over its history, there's not been an issue that hasn't surprised or entertained me in some way. That fact that I've been able to contribute over years has also been a privilege and an honour. Keep up the struggle - there's a near endless number of mysteries in the history of games, and I can only hope that as many as possible are solved and recorded before they're permanently lost to the inevitability of time.

Still feel the thrill discovering Retro Gamer for the first time on the shelves of my local newspapershop... Issue 25 it was. Bought every copy since and was never let down! Congrats with number 100, and remember, you'll never walk alone!

I still remember the day I bought the first issue of Retro Gamer back in 2004, it was fantastic. My first thought was 'wow, a magazine about old games?, cool!'. I'm really looking forward to issue 100, I hope it's as great as the first one.

The ZX Spectrum is the greatest achievement in British history. Retro Gamer magazine comes a close second.

Congrats RG. You produced more issues than Zzap64. Not a bad performance in anyone's language. Whats even more impressive, is the quality only gets better.

Cheers

I like old games, and RG has been supplying me with all the reminders that I needed to rediscover all those I had forgotten about over the years, and for that - thank you.
