Summary: Great Magazine at a Great Price
Comment: What more can you say? I got a fantastic Amazon price for this informative gaming mag - only wish I could lock in the same price for future renewals.

Summary: Designed for younger people
Comment: PC gamer used to be good. But it seems like the games offered are for
the younger generation. The CD that comes with it is not what is expected. No offense against the magazine itself. But I am 70 so it
dont appeal to me.

Summary: My Favorite Magazine For Several Years Running
Comment: I agree with the reviews that say the quality of the publication has diminished over time, but this magazine still puts out a quality product every month. Here are a few genuine PROS and CONS:

PROS
* I am consistently impressed with game and hardware reviews. In the six years I've been reading PC Gamer, they have only steered me wrong once with a review (that game was "Black & White")
* Depending on the subscription you choose, there is a game demo disk each week. Although this a hit or miss feature depending on the game demo.
* The magazine is put together by a very laid back, down-to-earth group of people that are often very funny and in general a pleasure to read
* The publication puts out a top-notch podcast every week that is a necessary compliment to the magazine.
* You're not just a reader, you feel like you're a part of community. PC Gamer regularly publishes letters to the editor and plays audio questions on their podcast. They always have some sort of giveaway or contest going on.
* You get the feeling these guys (and gals) really "get" the community for which they serve.


CONS
* Regularly features typos and misprints (one issue accidently printed the same page twice instead of the first page of its cover story. How does that happen?). I'm not perfect with typos either, but from a professionally published magazine, that's unacceptable.
* The issue itself has slimmed down to a dangerously skimpy thickness. The issues with any reasonable girth are only thick due to multi-page advertising spreads (i.e. its "Cell Play" section)
* There is an increasly shorter turnover rate for its editors. This hasn't affected the magazine too directly, but it is a future concern in terms of providing consistent, quality content.

Summary: PC Gamer Review
Comment: I have been reading this mag for many years now and it never gets old. The reviews save money on game rentals and purchases. As well, the writers are well versed in gaming and gaming history for the PC.

Summary: How the Mighty have fallen...
Comment: This magazine is nowhere near as good as it once was. The quality took a drastic hit a couple of years ago and has gotten worse ever since. They are more concerned with selling ads and pleasing sponsors or benefactor companies than with bringing actual gaming information to consumbers. My favorite is when they change the mag format in a really bizarre, pointless manner, tell you how awesome it is, then change it back after the backlash and still write an article saying how great this change was. Don't bother with this, internet websites are leaps and bounds better.
