I've gotten into reading PC and console gaming magazines from the early 80s to the late 90s on the internet archive. It's very interesting to see and be reminded how far we've come (and regressed). Certainly reading "but you're going to need a high-powered 486 system to enjoy the graphics" is fun :)

link?  I loved PC Zone mag from the UK, much better than PC Gamer I found.  The mag folded for some reason though.

Just browse thru there. Next Generation is a good one for the 90's, and Computer Gaming World is a good one for the 80's.

Been playing quite a bit of Yakuza Kiwami 2 this week.  About 2/3rds of the way through, just now getting to some of the really good references to the previous 2 games.  Laughed out loud several times during the Cabaret Club mini-game, such as the description of playing dress-up with the girls saying "You know you love it."  (How did they know?!  :o  ;))  And I just reached a point where a character from Yakuza 0's version of that game returns in glorious, jaw-dropping fashion that forced me to learn how to take screenshots on my PS4.  Combat-wise it's a little less stiff than 0 or Kiwami but also less precise and less deep since there aren't multiple combat styles, though you can move a lot faster and there are a lot more weapons and destructible items around.  The biggest upgrade between 0/Kiwami and this one is that the upgrade to Yakuza 6's system which cuts out almost all loading times and makes the world almost completely seamless.  You can walk in and out of any restaurant or activity building without loading, and even bring fights inside of them (though they aren't too happy about that).  The side stories have been good, but most aren't quite as ridiculously memorable as those in 0.  Haven't done too much with the Clan Creator yet, which is kind of a top-down real-time strategy game where you try to defend your construction equipment against enemies, though the victory theme is kinda catchy.
