Magazine needs an article on the PC

Post by icemann » Thu Jan 10, 2019 10:38 pm

As the title says. Retro Gamer needs an article on the PC. Even if its just how 80s - 90s PCs were developed. I'd love to see an article on this.

Agreed! The PC is reasonable well covered game wise, but an overall look at the PC as a gaming system would be good (and the graphics card race).

I say this too, as RG tends to go super in-depth into the makings of things. So seeing it from a RG angle would be a really damn fascinating read.

I'd love to see more early PC content as well - a lot of the PC related stuff in the mag is mid-late 90s, and there is masses of untouched games and developers from before then, particularly from the US, that would be great to read about.

I'd like to see a piece on the Eidos Commandos series, if ever possible.

Agree, more on the 80s and early 90s Pc and the multitude of games that were produced then please.

This is a really nice idea... I would love to see a few articles, probably one for each decade of PC gaming.

Cheers,

I love PC gaming, especially in the 90s, and am always looking to develop related features

Yep another vote for more PC stuff

Those early days of PC's with voodoo cards etc, golden times. Remember the 5 disc Baldurs Gate set i bought, thank god for dvd drives a short time after !
