I reckon Retrogamer is actually getting the balance about spot on these days actually....it's covering old stuff, but also has Future Classics and the occasional interview or article about something like oooh...Wipeout
Of course the Spectrum is going to be featured heavily in the last few issues..it's the 30th, and people who normally have no interest in Retrogaming are looking for stuff about what for many was their first introduction to gaming...The spectrum was trending at 6th place on Twitter today, when I last checked....
But yeah, Retrogamer should start doing more stuff about PS1, Dreamcast, N64, etc....and maybe looking at more coverage for things like the ST and other systems that it hasn't really had much about...but, it has started doing this
People who complain about Future Classics, etc. have to realise that some of these games are almost 20 years old now, and for Retrogamer to keep going it will need to start bringing in slightly younger retrogamers...people in their twenties who grew up with Wipeout and Parappa The Rapper! If the mag can do this by putting the odd interview or article, whilst also not forgetting about the older kids who played Paperboy, then it can go on pretty much forever...which would be awesome!
Personally, I'm interested in reading about games from all the different eras...I like to find stuff out about 70's TV games, but I'm also looking for some obscure PS1 titles that were only released in America! As far as I see it, if you like half the magazine, it's still doing a pretty damn decent job of keeping you entertained for a fiver! If you don't want to read about something, just skip it...they'll probably have an article you like but most other people skip in the next issue!
