GAMING PERIODICALS

Starting in the 1970s, several magazines were launched to coincide with the arrival of the first personal computers. Many magazines developed large scale circulation. Some exceeded 100,000 subscribers or more.

Once the internet grew, magazines moved online or perished. The rise of the internet saw the vast majority of print magazines fail.

Here is the archive of hundreds and hundreds of defunct magazines.
