Which was your favourite - mine was CU Amiga!

Choices as follows:

If your fav isn't listed - choose other and specify!

I used to read most of these, I regularly wasted most of my pocket money on Amiga magazines!

These days, AP. But I bought The One at the time and I still feel in 1992-3 they migth even have been doing a better job than AP before first Jim Douglas then David Upchurch and Gary Whitta left and they resorted to writing "ARSE" a lot.

And the less said about the Maverick issues the better.

So I'm voting The One, because I liked the One at the time but over the entire run of all the magazines, AP was better.

Transactor for the Amiga.

You didn't say it had to be a games mag (as some of the choices aren't).

Exactly! I was into the Amiga in EVERY WAY POSSIBLE! To me, the Amiga is the best at everything. Games, Music, Video, Office and if the software existed, it would be a very stable platform for say ....... a web server or something!

It was out of The One and CU. I went for CU, but they were both very good. I liked Amiga Action and Amiga Format as well.

Really, I could vote all of them - I used to buy most of these on a monthly basis!

Format for me. Back in the day all the Future Publishing titles were a cut above the rest.

Same as today. :wink:

AF all the way! I think I may still have the last ever issue from 2000 up in the loft. Used to get the ones with the CDs as we had a CD-ROM drive for our A1200 at the time (and still have it)!

Of the choices that you've listed it was probably AP, but I selected 'Other' because my favourite was Zero. It was multi-format, so it saw me through my ST days as well. In fact, by the time I'd got an Amiga it had folded. So it's my favourite Amiga mag that I got every month even though I didn't have an Amiga.

I'd completely forgot about Zero - I had a few issues of Zero mags, but I stopped seeing them on the shelves (probably because they'd folded)
