“it’s you lot that make gm such a blast to put together”

Blimey. 300 issues, eh? Them’s big numbers, no fewer than the most any gaming mag in the UK has ever accrued. Well done us! And over the last three decades we’ve covered the growth of the best hobby in the world through its most momentous evolutions. From bedroom programmers, through our first hops, skips, jumps, and ‘wahoos’ into the realm of 3D and beyond, we’ve collated some of the most important titles in gaming history as part of a massive three part 300 special feature blow-out. You also need to check out our super hard retro-themed quiz. Reckon you’re a real RetroMaster? Then give it a go and let us know how you get on! Before I let you get stuck in though: a quick thank you. Whether you’ve been reading since 1993…

THE MOST DEDICATED TEAM IN THE BUSINESS So dedicated that we locked ourself in a room (read: pub) with the heady task of collating this issue’s three seismic features. Sore heads were felt by all, and only partly due to the copious furniture tossing. Matt Sakuraoka-Gilman Our editor this month demanded to be called ‘Professor Matt’ as he got to work determing the exact correct placements for every game on our mega-lists. He assures us Hatsune Miku at both top spots is “the mathematically logical result”. Sam Freeman Art man Sam took on the role of Spartan king Leonidas as we slotted those three massive issue-busting features into his ‘to do’ tray. At least, we assume that’s what was happening as he screamed “This is art! Ahhhh!” at his monitor. Robin Valentine Grammar wrangler Robin declared the…

letter of the month

Way back in issue 159, a young Charles Carter sent us his idea for a game. Now, over a decade later, he’s a full-time professional games developer. For our 300th issue, we asked Chaz to share his story with us: I started reading GamesMaster perhaps around 15 or 16 years ago. In those younger days I used to draw my own games magazines, inspired by GM, but I used to just re-word the reviews and scores! I made my first game back then too – a “choose your own adventure” type game that I created in Microsoft Excel, using the row numbers as the choices. Saving it on floppy disk and making a “big box” for it from a cereal box made it feel like a real game. I gradually discovered online…

“I HAVE A MAGIC PLACE IN MY LIFE FOR THIS MAGAZINE” Unmissed connections I have been playing on my Nintendo GameCube lately and it feels so refreshing using a console that does not want to connect to the internet. No firmware update, no games requiring a patch because there are so many bugs, no DLC, just decent games that I can enjoy from the off. I think the internet has taken the fun out of gaming. Justin Dale, Facebook We definitely see where you’re coming from, Justin – it’s frustrating loading up a new game you’ve been desperate to play, only to have to sit there staring at a progress bar. But without connected consoles, we wouldn’t get free content updates, convenient digital downloads, online multiplayer, and loads of other awesome features. We reckon…

reader’s top 5 games to play right now

1 Rainbow Six Siege One of the most unique FPS games to come to market in a long time. And just plain fun! 2 Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide Solid, polished co-op in a beautiful world with plenty of rats to kill. 3 Arma 3 Really can’t go wrong here with the amount of DLC and mods the community creates for this game. 4 Don’t Starve What an absolutely amazing indie game. You can spend hours gathering, surviving, building, and fighting. 5 Railgun My own game we’re creating. Because my team is working very hard to create a fun indie shooter!
