To me, that is one of the problems.

When I browse through a cuirrent gaming mag, 90 % of what I see is RTS or FPS games or near genres.

Therefore I don't read gaming mags anymore. I love RPGs and Aventures, so 90 % of the mag is wasted for me.

Jump & Run, for example, has practically died out. On the PC. Although it's fun.

That reminds me of Microsoft having cut down EAX for Vista. No joke. Source : The German magazine " c't ".
