Just found this (incomplete) collection of scans of PCZone Magazine from Dennis publishing. Issue 1 is there (from 1993), and it seems to go through to issue 110 (from 2001). Some great reading in probably the best PC Games magazine I have ever read. I subscribed from issue 7 back when you got one or two 1.44" floppys taped to the front cover. I seem to remember a Terror From The Deep demo and also F14 Fleet Defender being on there at some point. Some time later they moved to a cover CD. The CD Images are there to download too, in some cases. One in particular had hundreds of maps and MODS for Quake, as one of the Zone staff (MaccA) fancied himself a bit of a pro gamer in the Quake 1 days. He even went on Gamesmaster to do a challenge set by Patrick Moore...
Other notable journalists who wrote reviews and articles are Charlie Brooker of TV fame and Rhianna Pratchett, Terry Pratchetts daughter. Zone was well known for it's hilarious reviews, witty articles and having a very non-bias approach to games journalism. They got into trouble a few times for innapropriate articles like Cruelty Zoo, and for ending the review for Quake 1 with the statement "Fucking Brilliant". Oh and they gave out the Red Blood patch for Carmageddon on their cover CD, which I believe was banned in many countries, which got them into some trouble.
Anyways I figured some others might find it interesting. They hardly ever come up on eBay now, and they usually demand a high price, especially the earlier ones.
PS. Not sure if this is legal, I know Zone ended a few years back as Dennis axed the magazine.
