Many individuals have scanned and made available online copies of 1980s (and later) video game and computer magazines in PDF format. The below list is not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive; rather it is limited to those titles that are of interest to me, personally. Most of the sites listed here also include other computer and video game magazines, and several of these titles are hosted at more than one site.

To my personal homepage.
