Looking Back at the Golden Age of Game Magazines

Video producer Marco took me way the hell back to the mid-90s, when magazines were the best source for news, reviews, and in-depth coverage of video games. I’m sorry, what? What’s a magazine? What are you, Bangalore? Listen, I’m 33 years old and I’m proud that I had to consume games content 30 days at a time. You don’t know how good you have it.

And another thing, what’s the deal with smart phones? They’re barely phones and they’re not that smart if you ask me.

Anyway.

Hey I got an email the other day with the subject line “*****URGENT***** OPEN FOR FREE PHONE BOOK” and now my computer only shows up on a third of my screen. Did I get a virus?

Ahem. I think I’m going to watch Marco’s video again because it’s great and then I’m going to keep thinking about his observation that GamePro used emojis to review games in 1995.
