Default Re: Which Amiga magazine did you buy?

I bought Amiga Format the most. Only missed the first 3 issues if I recall. Still have virtually a complete set with all coverdisks and CDs.

I also bought the US magazine Amiga World for about two years until it folded.

I bought Amiga User International until it stopped also.

I then bought AmigaActive until it converted into a digital media magazine (I think that only lasted one issue).

Periodically if I liked the coverdisk, I bought Amiga Computing, Amiga Shopper, Amiga Power, The One, various others who's names I forget.

Oh, and I bought every issue of CD32 gamer despite not having a CD32! (I planned to get one but never did)

I still have every one of these magazines, and occasionally pick one out to read. They should bring happy memories, but sadly I feel a great sense of mourning sometimes.

I re-bought some of them later. The late 80s / eraly 90s were a great time and worth remembering.

Oh, and do you remember PowerPlay? The guys are having a podcast now: "Spieleveteranen"

I remember when I fist got my Amiga each month a tired a different mag, Amiga Format first, then CU Amiga, Amiga Shopper and then Amiga Power, in the end I picked Amiga Format as i think it did have the perfect balance of covering all areas of Amiga. I subscribe from I think around issue 80 up till the end, very sad when it did go. I also got every issue of Amiga Active as I was really looking forward to the AmigaMCC, but as we know that never happened. So when Amiga Active finally ended, I was very sad not having a monthly mag, I think its a big reason I stop following the Amiga scene as much in around 2003 to 2009, I recently subscribe to Amiga Future as it was the least I could do after winning their mouse mat in the Amigaworld competitions and the fact i wanted more news on the new AmigaONE i'm surprised by how good it is, wish i got them a lot earlier.

One good thing however is when I went to get my second hand Amiga Power Tower in 99 the guy who sold it to me had nearly
every single issue of Cu amiga and loads of Amiga shopper, CD32 Gamer, all the early Amiga Format mags up to around issue 40, even the ST/Amiga format mags all in great condition! He actually said the reason he gave up on the Amiga dream was because of the closer of CU Amiga, so gave them all to me.(the car was weighed down that day!) I kind of knew what he meant when Amiga Active closed.

I felt exactly the same the day CU died. It really was at that exact moment that I realised the Amiga wasn't coming back

you mean like:

http://www.magazines.ch/index.html
http://www.amigahistory.co.uk/magazines.html

or even

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Amiga_magazines

whoops, missed the other links already mentioned in this thread. sorry.

out of all the magazines I've read my all-time favorite was probably CU Amiga, especially in its glory days. The One and Amiga Power were a lot of fun, too, and I couldnt resist reading Amiga Format either. Last mags I bought were Amiga Active and a few issues of Amiga Future. Oh I almost forgot about the Dutch 'Amiga Magazine'.
