I live in the USA, and there's nothing like Retro Gamer here, so the magazine is a real blessing to me! I love retro games, as well as their history, and I've learned so much from Retro Gamer about, for example, computers and software that we never got over here-like the ZX Spectrum and loading screens from games on tape, as cartridges were the norm here. Thanks again and keep up the great work! :D

Nice to see a thread like this as often its doom and gloom.

Had a flick through some of my mags, amazing how much is covered. Catch 22, they'll get moaned at if they feature a retro classic as it 'was in an issue 7 years ago' but if they try something new its 'never heard of this game, why is there a feature on it...' !

Must admit i like reading non stop about the famous games/franchises but 190 issues in some stuff will be covered again or they'll have to do more new stuff. Still enjoying the mag, dirt cheap. Shame theres not more emags - looked at the ones i bought from the old days there were loads in my archive.

Yup, I love Retro Gamer magazine. I don't like 100% of the content, but honestly that's my problem not the magazine. There is always something in every issue that is a great read. Keep it up guys.

Magazine is great, there is no doubt about it! The most "doom and gloom" is with regards to delivery problems plaguing otherwise great magazine.
Cheers to everyone making the Retro Gamer possible!

It is great to see a positive thread to share some love of the mag...too often we bring up what we don't like, loudly, and forget to acknowledge for the vast majority of the time RG is a terrific publication and it's wonderful to still have a mag like this in physical format to enjoy, with writers clearly as passionate on the subject matter as the readers. Fantastic work guys, take a bow.

...We'll go back to criticising in the next topic!

Yeah, hope that the RG team know how much the mag means to a lot of us. To people like myself, who grew up with the 80s/90s mag culture, it is so awesome to have something like RG keeping that flame burning. Gaming just isn't the same without it. With the 200th issue coming up this year maybe it should be time for the fans to do something for the RG team to acknowledge that?

The Powers That Be might ponder upon this: It has been many many issues since the first thing I read upon opening the magazine was the main story.

It's an interesting thought... I often leave it till last anyway, working my way through some of the smaller articles and regular content first.

Of recent magazines, I've gone straight to the SNK and RE2 articles first up
