GameSack: Video game magazines
These are some issues of US magazines from our youth that we find interesting. What was your favorite gaming magazine back in the day? And why? How about least favorite?
» Show: Game Sack
I always enjoyed getting the newest issue of Nintendo Power. Thanks to that magazine, I got interested in a lot of great games I might otherwise have ignored.
It's a shame they had to cease publication.
Would've loved to have seen some GamePro and Tips & Tricks! I loved Tips & Tricks, almost always got my cheat codes from them as a kid.
Electronic Gaming Monthly with Dan Hsu as the editor-in-chief. Their old review format is still my favorite to this day. Sharp previews, killer features, and the smart review crew.
LOVED Next Generation! It was a brilliant mag that treated games as something more. First time I had encountered that.
I was a GamePro kid. I also enjoyed Next Generation.
Talk about a contrast.
I was always a Nintendo Power kid, but I've never even heard of half of these magazines. How many are still around?
