  • I was wondering if it was possible to have an archive of the past 200 issues in the website. I know it would be an enormous task, but it would be awesome to have all of the past issues as reference. Not to mention I have been writing game reviews for a while now and would really like to post reviews for some old games which are not on the site. So I was wondering if the staff is planing on doing this or will i just have to search the depths of my closet to find some interesting tidbit on a long forgotten game?

  • I would also like to see some older games added.  I assumed they would, but now think I shouldn't assume that.

    As for the archive of old issues, I would love to see this.  I know it might be like, people would be getting all kinds of free issues, but it doesn't have to even be ones from the past year or 2, but really old ones. But the reason I want to see this, is for scholastic matters.  With the increase in video game studies, there needs to be databases for articles about video games, and even if an archive would not be free to the public, it should at least be made and opened up to colleges, which I think could really open things up for writing scholastic papers.

     

    I opened up this idea in the "Gaming Technology in Education" group as well, in case people wanted to talk more along those lines.

  • Wow, that would be an enourmous feat if they could pull that off.  That would be cool.  I would go back to the older issues and hopefully learn some gaming history from the pages.  They did something close to that already though...they put up an archive of the past GI covers.  That was a pretty good feature that you should check out.

  • That would be incredible. I would try to do it, but I don't have the money!
