Anyone here subscribe to any gaming magazines? Which one(s) do you think are the best? I play more online games than console games, so I read Computer Gaming World and PC Gamer. PC Gamer ranks #1 for me.

OPM (Official Playstation Magazine)

It's a bit more expensive than PSM (PlayStation Magazine), but every month it comes with 6-7 demos, a handful of videos, and usually some saved games/extras.

Are demos, videos, etc. shipped on a DVD that you can play in your PS?

I still get EGM sent to my p.o. box but I don't even pick it up anymore.

We get Game Informer, because it's part of our Game Stop membership deal. $15 for a year of the magazine, and 10% off all used games is a decent deal.

The last one I had a subscription to was Sega Power.

I used to get EGM and Computer Gaming Monthly. My all time favorite game magazine was GameFan but they stopped printing.

Sometimes there's music, etc.

Huh, interesting. Anyone know if any other gaming mags do this? And no one else subscribes or buys gaming mags from the newstand?

I see... Good to know Anticor. There aren't any other gaming fanatics out there that regularly read one or more gaming magazines?
