No. I subscribed to PCG from 1998 till a few years ago, and their opinions are dubious to the extreme, features not so great either. I gave up on them when they made one Id Software-asskiss too many. Judging by the fact that they've renamed their Game Of The Month award into Must Buy, I doubt they've changed for the better. PC Zone is the best choice in my opinion, like I said I haven't read PC Gamer in years but comparing my experience of it then with PC Zone which I've been subscribing to ever since, PCZ has more content and tends to have better opinions (*not always*!). They feature rather less previews but tend to rehash a lot less as well, giving room for more features. The main drawback is that the format seems very messy and all over the place at first, but once you know where to look it's a great read.

PC Gamer is alright, but IMO, Edge is the best Games magazine by far. Edit- As your looking for a magazine that concentrates mainly on PC's then PC Gamer is probably the one to get, not that i know of any other PC-only mag's. :uhm:

Yeah, I agree PC gamer is by far the best PC magazine I've read. Although I dont base buying games on it, it's by far the best read.

The US version of PC Gamer is rather different to ours. Personally I can't stand our version, subscribed since 1998 but had enough and cancelled it a few years back. I get PC Zone now, which has rather higher credibility as far as I'm concerned.

I've got a huge stack of PCGamers going back to late 99, but I really like Computer Gaming World a lot more. But maybe I just liked Jeff Green's Greenspeak in the back of every magazine. I still think it's better than PCG.
