* SpiritualSuccessor: The original UK version was a spiritual successor to Future Publishing's earlier ''AmigaPower''. At one time they shared many of the same staff writers, and ''PC Gamer'' carried over much of it's tone, some regular articles (like the annual Top 100), and several of the running gags and [[MemeticMutation memetic mutations]] from ''Amiga Power'' as well. Of course, it was covering a different machine, and things changed after the AP staffers eventually moved on.
