I am just curious to know which Games magazines you buy and why?

Give us your mini verdict!

(let me know if I've missed any big name magazines out, they have to at least feature Xbox 360)

You have missed Xbox 360 world and games master out .

I buy the games master because its not just telling you all the 360 things and games coming out . It tells you every console game's like pokemon and ps3 and ds .

We subscribe to GamesTM because in my opinion its the best all-rounder as it covers all formats.
We've bought 360 Gamer a few times when there is some good articles in there, plus we've had some reviews published in there.
EDGE isnt for a younger audience as its written for the technically minded, I like it sometimes.
I don't buy GamesMaster because I feel that I am too old for it, I've flicked through 1 or 2 in the past but feel imo that its for kids.
I wouldn't even buy the Official Xbox Magazine to wipe my bum
I can't really comment on Retro Gamer and X360 as I haven't really looked at them properly.

I regularly buy GamesTM - as you say, it's a pretty good all round magazine. Plus it has a strong online community. I also buy 360 Gamer

I have bought one copy of Edge, which I thought was poor; I'm not saying it's a bad magazine, I just didn't like the vibe from it. Also bought Gamesmaster in the past; yeah, definitely for da kids. I didn't vote for them

The reason why i buy this is beacuse , there's loads about every new console it tells you all the new game's comingout for all the platform console's and its not much really its quite cheap and really exciting . Ill be putting some pictures up in the next couple of days so everyone can actually look at what magazine's i like and that .

Its only 75p cheaper than GamesTM, and if you subscribe to GamesTM their magazines are the equivalent to only 2 an issue.

I have had a flick through GM in the shops and was instantly unimpressed, but that might be because I am beyond their target range which is at maximum 19yrs old:

I said Edge, Gamestm and Retrogamer.

I only get Edge when theres something specific in it as i can get angry reading some of their reviews for being too critical or serious lol.

GTM is a good all rounder and RG is only good if you used to play games years ago, and by that i mean before Xbox...yes games didnt start at xbox haha lol!
