Computer Gaming World (September 1989)

Computer Gaming World (September 1989)

I think without a doubt that Computer Gaming World was the best PC games magazine. In 1989 they were still covering other computer systems and the magazine was only at 50 pages but it would reach it's peak in the 1990s with the development of the 3D accelerator and the subsequent explosion of PC gaming. There were some truly massive issues then. The September 1989 issue includes: Features
  • SSI's "Curse of the Azure Bonds" - Scorpia Explores Another "Forgotten Realm"
  • Epyx's "The Omicron Conspiracy" - "We'd Tell You More, But..."
  • SSI's "Hillsfar" - "It Takes A Thief" To Be The Best
