    What was your favorite gaming magazine growing up?

    I fondly remember the days of coming home from school waiting for my new issue of EGM. What was your favorite gaming mag growing up?

    Mine was Gamepro. But EGM and PSM are a close second. Wizard Mag was another, while it was manly a comic magazine, it did have gaming segments in it.

      I have not thought about Wizard for years but that was one I subscribed to back in my heavy comic collecting days

    We had very few in the UK, and they were still expensive in their day. It was my dad who bought the Official Playstation Magazine, and I'd just look at the pictures and play the demos, and even today I rarely read the content.

    But today I like going over old issues of Nintendo Power, for they were the best of the best when it came to video game guides, strategies and news for ALL things Nintendo! I'd even go as far to say that they blew the internet out of the water at times.

      Thanks for the input, in the US in the late '90s you could not got to a store without seeing twenty different magazines. Almost every media empire at the time was looking to cash in on the growing gaming trend.

    At different points in time, I had subscriptions to Nintendo Power, GamePro, and EGM. Nintendo Power was always my favorite though, because The Legend of Zelda has always been my favorite series. And of course, when I was a kid Pokemon was huge.

    Nintendo Power. I was a loyal subscriber for several years as a kid. Of course, it only had Nintendo stuff, but I was always a Nintendo kid until the PS 2 came along.

    Growing up, it was most likely PC Gamer.

      One of my favorites as well. I do miss the days of the 100+ page PC Gamer magazine wit the bundled demo disc.

      Yeah, the disc was one of the reasons why I used to buy it.
