Read classic computer and video game magazines in your browser
The Internet Archive offers a wealth of fantastic ways to revisit the past, whether you’re trawling through classic animated GIFs from the nineties, running Windows 3.1 programs in your browser, or playing DOS, classic arcade, or vintage console games online.
The latest trip down memory lane comes in the form of classic computer and video gaming magazines, something that really resonates with me as there are titles there that I not only read in my youth, but that I wrote for, or which were put together in the same building I worked in.
There are currently 18,662 titles to browse through, sorted into numerous categories, and you can filter the results by media type, year, topics and subjects, collection, creator, language, and more.
If you’re after a particular title, you can just search for it by name.
There are magazines covering PC, Amiga, Amstrad, Atari, Commodore, Sinclair, Acorn, and many more.
When you’ve found a magazine to read, just click on it and you can view it online, or download it in various different formats including PDF, EPUB, Kindle and Text.
It’s already a fantastic resource, but I’m looking forward (with some trepidation it must be said) to seeing what future magazines get added.
