In college I played Nethack. Then I moved to Moria. Now I stick to playing Angband.
Game Developer Magazine
Found a place online that has all the back issues of Game Developer magazine for free. The archive dates back to 1994. I took a peek at the old issues. It was entertaining to read about the old time consoles such as the NES. There was also talk about a lot of companies that are not out of business. Speaking of which, it seems that Game Developer magazine ceased publication earlier this year.
It is really too bad. I thought game development has become big business. Perhaps the magazine industry is the one in a sharp decline. You should download some or all of these back issues at the GDC Vault. Nobbody is sure if these issues will be free or available forever. I know I spent an afternoon downloading a bunch of files. They also include the source code and utilities along with the magazine itself.
