    Not being a NES/SNES gamer, you probably haven't perused too many of the magazines that covered them. If you did, it's pretty obvious they were not targeted at adults. For that matter, neither were the systems or games. While there were most definitely adults who played them as well, 8-bit and 16-bit systems and games were exclusively marketed towards kids and teens (in the USA, at any rate.) During those years, adults who played games did so on computers for the most part. The PlayStation era is when the age range began to skew older, although it was mostly due to a generation of Nintendo/Sega gamers who had come of age but were still interested in playing games. And as the age gap between console gamers and computer gamers began to disappear, so did the differences in the types of games which appeared on those platforms. Fast forward to today when there's virtually no difference between PC gaming and console gaming (again, in the USA.)

    I was not playing console games in the 1990s -- I essentially skipped from the 2600 to the PlayStation -- so I never paid any attention to the NES and SNES magazines. That said, does anyone have a sense of how well titles like this sold BITD? Personally, I would only have purchased an occasional issue if there was in-depth coverage of a game that I had (or that I planned to get). I simply could not justify buying it on a regular basis, much less subscribing. There would be many issues with no relevant content. Obviously, today with generally much larger collections, and emulation, the situation is much different.

    PC Gamers from 2005 are new to be allowed here but who am I kidding, no one around here scans PC Gamer anyway. I actually stopped gaming for the most part prior to 2005, so I'm not gonna be much help, but maybe some of you youngsters out there who are familiar with these new-fangled MMO thingamajiggers (like, those of you who didn't have to google what a "raid" is) can help.

    Finding general interest magazines is hard. Since scanning a magazine is such a pain in the ass, typically only people with a passion for a specific hobby or subject are going to be willing to make the effort to do so. To that end it's probably simpler to find scans of model railroad magazines than of something like what you're looking for. Good luck!

    I'd focus your efforts on magazines in English if I were you, then. Or just pick any magazine at random. People interested in, for example, the Dreamcast, will happily download any issue from a Dreamcast magazine, regardless of the specific games covered inside.

    That's an interesting point of view. If you prefer the still-bound flatbed scanner look, you could take our releases and open them in Photoshop or some other editing software. Select about an inch-worth of space along the gutter side of the page. Then apply a strong blur filter to that section as well as a darkened gradient. Finally, use the warp command to distort it. Voila! Seriously, though, even though we would never allow that sort of thing here, there are plenty of people who can recognize that a low-quality scan is better than no scan at all, so uploading it to a file repository like archive.org isn't b-team at all (that would suggest that they are a team to begin with.) It's just a place where anyone can upload files without needing to worry about if the quality meets any kind of standards or if they have permission top upload the files in the first place. Like torrents. Without the torrents. It's where I upload things that I didn't scan myself. So by all means, scan your stuff in whatever way you're comfortable with and upload it there. I guarantee there will be people who appreciate it.

    I disagree, but then I'm of the opinion that readable is just fine. And an unedited or roughly edited mag is still much more readable than a mag that hasn't been scanned at all. So that's where I choose to put my efforts. I can see the want for completion, but we're tens of thousands of scans away from ever getting there - it ain't gonna happen. So I'd rather scan something for the first time rather than make sure every magazine hosting site has an exclusive copy of the same magazine. Don't worry, I don't expect everyone to agree with me. Just stating my own philosophy on the matter.
