Retro Gamer’s 200th issue is landing Thursday, October 31 and it’s bringing some of the biggest names in gaming throughout the years to help guide you through its history.

They include PS4 and PS5 lead architect Mark Cerny, Elite co-creator David Braben, Codemasters’ founder David Darling, and many more. This issue focuses on gaming from the ‘60s all the way through to the present day, looking at how gaming has changed throughout recent history.

This includes interviews with Steve Russell (who created the first video game, Spacewar!) and Atari co-creator Nolan Bushnell, Kevin Jordan and Kevin Beardslee on designing World of Warcraft, and programmer Matthew Smith on 35 years of Jet Set Willy.

On top of that, the magazine also has a timeline that runs across 86(!) pages, looking at some of the most important moments in gaming, as well as features on how PlayStation changed gaming, Grand Theft Auto 3’s role in shaping the modern blockbuster, and the rise of retro gaming.

The issue also comes with a double-sided poster with artwork by Army of Trolls and Craig Stevenson, as well as a music CD featuring orchestral and synth-led remixes of 14 legendary Turrican tracks by Chris Huelsbeck.

Since the magazine launched in January 2004, it’s been the authority on retro gaming, with current editor Darran Jones having overseen the mag since its 19th issue.

If you can't find a copy in the shops, you can purchase it here from Thursday: https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/ ... issue-200/. Order through Quidco and Future will also knock off 16%.

As PSM2 used to say, you'd be a benson to miss this!

I may have to pick that up. I used to subscribe to the mag and really enjoyed reading it every month. Maybe its time to getting them again.

Ooh nice, might need to pick that one up.

I've grabbed a few issues of Retro Gamer over the years and always enjoyed them. If I were going to subscribe to any magazine then it would definitely be this one!

But in a way that's good, shows that the mag is doing well so can't grumble.
