RESIDENT EVIL 2 was the first and only game I played on a PC. 

I don't think the first two were ever equalled.

Alone in the Dark was a big influence on Resident Evil as was Capcom's own Sweet Home, a survival horror RPG on the Nintendo Famicom.

Issue #180 of UK magazine RETRO GAMER, which will be out on the 19th April, will have an article on Spider-Man. This is the blurb:

How Marvel's web-slinger overwhelmed gamers when he swung onto Sega's consoles.

Should be interesting!

CVG was such a great mag. One of the first UK publications to cover the Japanese console scene.

I always thought that "generalist" magazines covering numerous consoles were a hard sell. 

I could be wrong, but statistically speaking, aren't there likely to be more folk who own one console than those who own many? 

I didn't always buy generalist magazines. Back in the early 2000s, I only had a PlayStation, so picking up a magazine that also covered Xbox and Nintendo games didn't appeal to me.
