The world’s best guide to classic gaming

Retro Gamer is the only magazine in the UK that’s fully dedicated to the halcyon days of classic gaming. If you’ve ever fondly blasted away at the Bydo Empire in R-Type, swung Bowser by the tail in Super Mario 64, or navigated all 20 levels of Matthew Smith’s Manic Miner, then this is the magazine for you. Created by a dedicated team of experts, Retro Gamer’s mission is to deliver constantly engaging and passionately written articles that cover a wide range of subjects. We offer our readership in-depth looks at classic games and franchises, behind-the-scenes glimpses of the software houses from yesteryear, and one-on-one exclusive interviews with industry veterans such as Archer Maclean and Hideo Kojima. Stylish, entertaining and beautifully presented, Retro Gamer is the ultimate guide to videogaming’s rich and diverse history.

It's wonderful that the magazine has managed to survive to be nearly 15 years old (founded 2004) despite the cancellation of many other games publications - and with less emphasis on current games than most (although trends and anniversary inform topics and there are modern game reviews and features). However, the writing lacks the wit of some other games magazines and the editing is particularly poor - typos and misplaced punctuation marks run rampant. It could also stand to be more socially conscious. It's not usually awful though and they do often get very high-profile interviews.
