10 Gaming Magazines from the '90s That Will Make You Miss Childhood

AnakSd - When I think back to my childhood, two things immediately spring to mind: playing video games and reading magazines. As soon as I got home from school, the first thing I did was boot up my Nintendo 64 and play Mario Party with my brother and sister. Then, when I grew bored of that, I turned to magazines like Nintendo Power, Game Informer, and Electronic Gaming Monthly to learn about new games coming out and then read about them in detail.


#1: Mean Machines

One of the most iconic gaming magazines of the '90s was Mean Machines. It was known for its in-depth game reviews, previews, and tips & tricks. The magazine also had a bit of an attitude, which made it all the more entertaining. If you were a gamer in the '90s, Mean Machines was a must-read.

#2: GamePro (five sentences): Another gaming magazine that was popular in the '90s was GamePro. It was similar to Mean Machines in that it provided reviews, previews, and tips & tricks for gamers. However, GamePro also had a more light-hearted approach to gaming with its humor and comic strips.


#2: Official PlayStation Magazine

OPM was one of the most popular gaming magazines in the late '90s and early 2000s. It was known for its in-depth previews and reviews of upcoming PlayStation games, as well as its monthly demo disc. OPM also had a very popular cheat code section that helped gamers get through tough spots in games.

#3: Computer & Video Games

Of all the gaming magazines out there, Computer & Video Games was my favorite. I loved reading about all the new games coming out and eagerly awaited each new issue. Every month, I would pour over every page, reading every word. I even wrote in to the magazine a few times!


#4: Edge

Edge was a console gaming magazine that was first published in October 1993. It was known for its in-depth reviews and previews, as well as its industry insider news. The magazine went through several changes over the years, but it always remained a go-to source for gamers.

#9: Mean Machines Sega (six sentences): Mean Machines Sega was a UK-based magazine that was first published in 1992. It was known for its high quality content and lively writing style. The magazine became one of the most popular gaming magazines of its time, and it's still fondly remembered by gamers today.


#5: Nintendo Power

Nintendo Power was one of the most popular gaming magazines of the '90s. It was packed with information on upcoming Nintendo games, cheat codes, and tips & tricks. Plus, it came with awesome freebies like posters and stickers. Every issue was a must-have for any self-respecting Nintendo fan.


#6: Edge UK

One of the most popular and long-running UK gaming mags, Edge was originally launched in 1993 as a successor to Mean Machines. The magazine was known for its high-quality journalism, rigorous reviews, and evocative writing. It was also one of the first magazines to take video game coverage seriously, with in-depth features and interviews that treated gaming as a legitimate form of entertainment. Sadly, Edge UK ceased publication in 2013.


#7: Retro Gamer

I was always more of a console gamer growing up, so when I found out about Retro Gamer, I was in heaven. This magazine focuses on classic games and gaming culture, and it's just as fun to read as it is to play the games it covers. Plus, the fact that it's still going strong today is a testament to its quality.


#8: Super Play

Super Play was a magazine published in the United Kingdom during the early 1990s. It was devoted to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Famicom. Despite its name, it also covered other consoles released around that time such as the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. It was known for being one of the first magazines to give out accurate information about upcoming games.


#9: NGC Magazine Section: #10/11 Official Dreamcast Magazine / Sega Saturn Magazine
