The magazine has several regional editions, with the UK and US editions becoming the best selling PC games magazines in their respective countries.

The magazine features news on developments in the video game industry, previews of new games, and reviews of the latest popular PC games, along with other features relating to hardware, mods, "classic" games and various other topics.

PC Gamer reviews are written by the magazine's editors and freelance writers, and rate games on a percent scale.

In the US edition, the lowest score awarded was 4%, given to Mad Dog Mc Cree, unseating the previously lowest-rated game, Skydive! There are two main editions of PC Gamer, a British version and an American version, both are published by Future plc.

Founded in the United Kingdom in November 1993, the American sister version was launched a year later in June 1994.

There are also numerous local editions that mainly use the materials of one of the two editions, typically the British one, including a Malaysian (Discontinued in December 2011) and Russian edition.

The Swedish edition, though rooted in its UK counterpart, has grown to be more independent, largely due to the immense popularity of PC games compared to console games in Sweden, and now produces most of its own material.

In the US edition, no game has yet received a rating higher than 98% (Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Half-Life 2, and Crysis), while the UK edition has never awarded more than 96% (Kerbal Space Program, Civilization II, Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Minecraft, Spelunky and Quake II).

In the UK edition, the lowest numerical score was 2%, awarded to The 4th Golden Satellite Awards for Interactive Media Winner Big Brother 1.
