Time to re read old Retrogamer Magazines

Post by oldtimer » Sat Apr 04, 2020 6:07 am

Well stuck in isolation for who knows how long has prompted me to start re reading my old collection of Retrogamer Magazines (about 175).

Lucky for me i was going to stick them all in the loft a few weeks ago but never got around to it so ive started at good old no1 and working my way through.

Anyone else re reading???

I gave my entire collection (from 1 to 190) to my brother some time ago, but I've bought some and picked up more since then. I have about 20 I'm re reading.
Thoughts and prayers.

I've subscribed since around issue 20 and have never kept an issue. Always chuck one when the new one comes. Should probably just go digital.

I've got tons still sealed, didn't have the time and then when I did I couldn't see them all that well.
May dig out my glasses and dip in though.

I just cant bring myself to dispose of mine.
Most are in almost as new condition as i only tend to read them once and i keep them in sealed plastic boxes.

I sold or binned nearly all my Retro Gamers. The problem is I have a Almost complete C&VG run from 1983 to 1993, Game Zone complete run Super Play, Mean Machines, Sinclair User, Commodore User, Computer Gamer, Zzap 64, Total, Sega Pro every issue of Maximum, Games X, Sega Power, Mega, Load Runner comic and god knows what else it’s hard to store them all. So hence Retro Gamer went. I even have Marshal Ward and Freeman’s catalogues I kept from the 1980s and they take a ton of space
