It’s a shame that there’s only two issues available but these digital editions of Video and Arcade Games magazine are such great reading for retro gamers especially as they were written at a time when some of the best classic coin-op games were hitting the arcades.
I always like to browse through these old magazines especially articles that preview games that we all know today have become legendary titles. Games like Robotron, Defender, Centipede, Joust and Berzerk – All unknown titles at the time, released onto the gaming world with a large degree of risk..would gamers take to them?
Each magazine is chock full of nostalgic articles including editorials on the birth of gaming hardware, a look at up and coming home gaming hardware (MB Vectrex), reviews of the latest arcade games, tips on mastering games like Robotron & Q-Bert among others and a fascinating story about the creation of Space War. Very good reading!
