Post whatever you think looks cool from that era. I'll do my part of course and post a few

I miss the old game magazines, they used to have great writers. Wish I didn't throw out my old stack now

What were your favourite video game magazines and ads that you liked from the 2000s?

I threw most of them away as well at some point, but I kept a dozen or two which I considered best. They were that good, yeah.

Makes me wish I had my old Game Informer mags, so I could scan a few,
HOWEVER
I have the next best thing

This is a website that archives old vidya magazines, though you can't view any of the archived Game Informer mags, I presume due to them still existing and requesting their issues be taken down from the site. Lets see what I can find in Tip's and Tricks issue 100, a mag I actually owned.

Surprisingly few direct ads, T&T is a good magazine a swear every time I open a mag at an office or car garage the thing is 70~90% ads

Not as edgy as some of the game mags, but a couple tamer MacAddict ads from the late 90's if that counts.
