By now, you’ve probably seen the steamy yet tastefully done Playboy photos from the Mafia II demo, of which, there are five. Unfortunately, 2K Games doesn’t let you flip through the magazines littered around the game world, which is a shame, because vintage Playboys are a time capsule full of interesting information, including politically charged articles (yes, we love the articles), humorous cartoons, interviews and various critiques on movies, fashion and music. Read just one of these issues, and you’ll learn a lot about culture in that particular year.
On that note, we managed to find much larger images of each cover, then dug up the most important articles to give you an idea what was popular back in the day. Enjoy.
