I still have my old PSMs. I will forever treasure the April Fools edition with Valkyrie Naked where they just posted a bunch of nude women and claimed a game was being made out of it.

Bentley King

I miss not having the internet so the E3 issues would blow my dick off with great shit. Also demo discs were fun.

it kind of sucks that video game journalism has become controlled by a bunch of virtue signalling faggots and their hordes of fellow travelers who say there is nothing wrong with that

A little bit, but stuff like that and manuals with story info and such are no longer needed with the advances of the future.

they still exist, at least in europe, but I find them too expensive in an age where I can get information faster myself anyway. they're pretty comfy though.

Hudson Rogers

This. Having news the moment it drops is certainly convenient, but there was something about getting a dump of it all at once every month that was amazing. Also demo discs.

And fucking hell. Swimsuit specials and that whole era. PSMUK used to publish topless fan art of Lara that got sent in.

The revival of EGM a few years ago, while it failed, was really good. It was mainly articles. More about culture than reviews.

Yes.
read a D1 review on a mag back in the day
reviewer praised it to hell and back and gave it 10/10

Missing the forest for the trees here pal.
It's not le evil SWJ but the corporations who regained more control over videogames and consumer that ruined the industry, this is not exclusive to gaiming. Obviously they want to expand their profits with it, gaiming magazines ecc. Were exclusive to people who had gaming as a hobby or pre teens, now the corporations want children, women, teenage girl and the edgy variant of this one to play. Gaming is something everyone does to this day.
Is political correctness to blame here? No. Yeah it sucks, but it just the weapon used by corporations to attract more people. You won't stop gaming, but tumblr will probably start, more girls will want to be part or this community and start.
It's like when /pol/ started reeeeing over the new start wars movie.
No it's not white genocide or Jews or whatever, it simple marketing.
They put a black guy and a girl as protagonists because this is the market that they needed, the market that lacked in the first trilogy or that is now outdated.
What is killing the world is not an elaborate scheme to kill whites or SJW being a presence everywhere, but simple longing for profit at every corner, killing artistic expression and what could have been for videogames a chance to become a medium that is taken serious.

I’m 14
wake up at 10am, it’s a Saturday morning on a hot summers day. My dad is still alive and watching the football highlights, he hugs me as he always did back then,mum is happily preparing something be lunch thing for her friends
after some Pokemon cereal breakfast, I remember the new EDGE E3 edition is out today, so I take a leisurely stroll to the high street
qt girls in shorts everywhere, smiling at me because I was a social wee guy
go into WHSmiths, fuck yeh new issue is in si i buy it plus lots of fizzy juice and sweets to eat while I read it in my parents big back garden
these games look amazing! Resi 4 wtf!! But tonight I’m looking forward to a good old fashioned HALO - 12 player link up at my gfs house (her brother doesn’t care lol)
some of the best friends I will ever have willl be there... Euan, Al, Craig... and we might get even get a little alcohol heheh!
sigh in contentment at this near perfect like, pet my doggies who beam up at me

wake up
that was 14 years ago
dogs dead, dads dead, house gone, barely see friends, I struggle with alcoholism and poor health due to my now bad cystic fibrosis
and I fucking hate video games

Tbh I’m still grateful for life but fuck what happened. What’s worse is I know “that’s life” and most other humans goes through even more misery and hey man that’s just life sorry

Daniel Hall

The ads were fun too though.

Nathaniel Jenkins
Nathaniel Jenkins

I genuinely agree. Politics is only a means to the end of attracting a wider audience. It’s obvious that as soon as the PS3/360/Wii era came along with the huge wave of normalfags, the people on charge of having games made abandoned their old fans for the ones that make them the most money. Artistic expression/visions are too risky/expensive.

tfw even as a kid you were a skeptic fag due to so many kids lying about games being "THE BEST THING EVER"

I liked the magazines due to the art and articles of rumors or upcoming stuff. So many disappointing games recommended but at least I only rented them.

Japan is also really different. They never had a problem with sexualization in vidya because if they don't get then with this, they will get them with pachinko or whatever karaoke machine or other strange stuff they have over there.
Dude good luck, you can't escape it. Corporations are in your house and in your mind when you sleep. The west is not a corporate drone waste land like japan or korea only because we have deep history with workers movements.
We will never be corporate drones at that level but we still are drones. It's only downhill from here unless someone sacrifice profits on purpose.
Nothing is untainted by corporations tho. Nothing

Austin Ramirez
Austin Ramirez

Exactly my dude. Videogames have been affected the worse because of timing and money involved. One could argue that this media didn't even have the time to evolve in its full potential. In certain sense it was already a tool from the start, it gave us some legit masterpiece in the meantime, but it will never be taken seriously because it was born into this shit, unlike other media. Even cinema had a couple of decades before being desecrated. It's a transition needed, but I think we are in the point were it's enough

Easton Young

Are there scans of this anywhere? I never was into magazines as a kid but my Dad bought me one of the very last ones (think it was issue 101, had Crash Bandicoot on the cover) and I've always wanted to see what I missed.

Zachary Brown
Zachary Brown

The west is not a corporate drone waste land like japan or korea only because we have deep history with workers movements.

Disagree. “Workers parties” have resulted in some of the worst atrocities in human histories. The west, specifically the USAs concerns of the right of the individual, and their rights to free speech, trade, and ability to choose are the reasons for success, not restricting it via workers “rights”

Evan Harris
Evan Harris

It's not politics dude. It's the tool used to expand a market. You call it politics but it's buisness (not that much difference).
And it's not addressed directly.
Why put 70 genders on a game?
Because 2 are always present, the other 68 won't feel excluded, boicott us and will buy the game. It's literally corporations scraping for every cent

Hell yeah. I loved getting EGM every month, I would savor every page and read the whole thing cover to cover several times. Reading their 90s/early 2000s issues reminds you of how easy it was to be politically incorrect back then.

Michael Anderson

but tumblr will probably start, more girls will want to be part or this community and start.
People actually believes this. And in 5 years they will say the same thing. And then again in 10 always using the "only recently girls in gaming are 'accepted'"

I said movements, it's not the same thing. it's about decent hours, not flags.
. The west, specifically the USAs concerns of the right of the individual, and their rights to free speech, trade, and ability to choose are the reasons for success, not restricting it via workers “rights”
Look. Don't want to discuss politics, but you seriously think that the USA is not the biggest lobby for everything in the world?
I don't get this concept of freedom of yours, The wealth of the US comes from imperialism not from building something, most people can't afford a good lifestyle and sucidie in the first world is skyrocketing.
Is this freedom? Being stabbed for 100$ in an alley is freedom? Nah man, I cannot agree with this.
Workers parties did a lot of killing, never forget that they all started from ashes and with the world against. In a modern context such thing rightfully should be frowned upon, but with historical context... The problem wasn't much imo the killings or absence of civil freedom but the way the state close on itself.
Remeber that civil freedom comes second to economical and political freedom.
How can a community survive when individuality (economic btw, not individuality of thought) is glorified?
The problem is that normalfags wouldn't even be interested in this shit if big buisness didn't need to suck life out of everything

Yes, I do. They always had handpicked demos, patches, cool music, cheats, best community mods, walkthroughs. I've learned of so many great games that have stayed throughout my entire life with me as my favorites thanks to gaming magazines. And their journalism was on point too, they interviewed people and not just played their shitty press releases and barfed out another paid up score.

lol at this. We had a sexual abuse scandal in my country during the whole weinstein stuff, we publicized the whole stuff as politics too. It wasn't a sexual crime but a story about corruption. 2 week later no one remebered,
Politics something that is out of the ordinary, people don't understand it. Is a gimmick and a word that anyone can use for anything. Profit? they do understand it, corporations? No one likes them. Politics is not about titties in games jesus crist.
Dude, no. No. And no. It's not anti white. Read again my star wars example. It's simple as that.

With internet everywhere vidya journalism simply became too irrelevant with magazines selling less and less, the competition between magazines and against the internet, videos, etc. The focus on the online didn't change too much because there is too much competition and the only way to achieve presence and profit is with ads and money from the publishers.
So, they tried to find a new audience, the tumblr one, and resort to clickbait to generate traffic. This is why they constantly publish articles about the importance of reaching new people, making games more accessible and lowering the difficulty. Not because it makes the games better, but because they seek to generate more money for their decadent sites.

This guy knows what's up. I grew up in an entertainment industry family. When I was a kid my mom was a movie studio marketing executive, my uncle is a bigshot agent, my aunt is a well-known movie producer. These companies employ hundreds of people and spend millions of dollars analyzing the market and figuring out what the most people will spend money on. It's a big part of why movies and AAA games are just endless shit sequels and adaptations now, these companies refuse to do a thing unless their focus groups and market studies and shit say it's the single most profitable decision they can make.

I seriously don't understand what are you saying you dumb cocksucker. What kind of politics are we talking about? Again, it's about creating the most unviersal and innocuous product possible. It's not an agenda, it's business and this is the nature of capitalism.

Christian Reyes

Just fuck off man, you're an idiot. It's plain as day if you just read the replies.
first you deny they're pushing their politics and just using the term as a buzzword for interest
i show you the specific "social awareness" shit they're doing which means promoting minorities
you then reply that "where did i even say that" obviously missing the entire point (again because you have shit for brains)
i then explain it to you
you still can't understand
Sad, but expected.

Ayden Cook

Ah, those times in which the magazines made fun of the nonsense of jack thompson and alikes about videogames -and heavy metal and comics- as being responsible for violence and shootings.

To think that years later they publish studies, articles and dogmas on how videogames are responsible for sexism and the resurgence of nazism.

In Zelda: Wand of Gamelon, you play the princess. And as you know from better games, princesses are helpless little girls pining for prince wang in castles with bad security just waiting to get captured. Why would anyone want to play the part of that? It doesn't take a sociologist to know that they would be gay. Let's not fool ourselves-- they'd have to be super super gay. Now do the math on this: experts in ass ramming estimate that about 10% of the world is homosexual, and if you consider that only 5 people actually wanted a CDI machine, that means that this game was made specifically for a target audience of one half a person. I hope that half a person is happy, because this game probably got a few video game salesmen killed.

I miss EGM

Zachary Scott

No it's not white genocide or Jews or whatever, it simple marketing.
They put a black guy and a girl as protagonists because this is the market that they needed, the market that lacked in the first trilogy or that is now outdated.

niggers arent "the market they need" my man, not by any measure.
if this were profit oriented because they want to pander to as many potential viewers as possible, they would have cast a bunch of chinese protagonists, because unlike the billion dirt poor niggers in africa, the billion chinese in china actually are a big potential market.

You're hilariously misinformed.

Force Awakens is the highest-grossing film of all time, the only foreign country in which it earned more money than in China was the UK.

Chinese audiences want to see beautiful western actors in western movies, in fact a popularly cited reason as to why The Last Jedi bombed there was due to the fact that it did not have many attractive white people.

I know everyone is focused on jerking off over how old gaming magazines had bikini tits in them, but really the thing I miss was how they used to treat games from smaller studios or niche genres and how you could tell there was genuine enjoyment and respect for gaming as a whole. Now you have fresh journalism grads who maybe touched a 360 controller at a party once giving 9/10s in a cold, corporate way.

I think the closest thing I've found to this is the HG101 crew.

They don't even go full on nude

i liked them when i was a kid and could only use magazines or people i know to learn about new games and what to buy. now i'm glad i don't need to read journo faggots and have disregarded their opinions and writings because i can get news and superior opinions easily

you will never chuckle at Bill Donohue's & Chris Slates antics when replying to fan mails again.

Likewise. Middle school me found out about DOAX and down the rabbit hole I went.

if this were profit oriented because they want to pander to as many potential viewers as possible, they would have cast a bunch of chinese protagonists, because unlike the billion dirt poor niggers in africa, the billion chinese in china actually are a big potential market.

Again, they know China is a huge market, and they know what that market wants to see: Beautiful white people, NOT Chinese people. The last Transformers movie actually did better in China than in the US, they like our horrible blockbusters.

the only thing i get is that the chinese dont want to see niggers
That's all you took away from it because you're fixated on it.

I guess that explains the outstanding success of TLJ in china. They knew all about what they want.

Good times. Pretty sure I had that issue myself. Always love checking out the preview sections to see what sweet new game was on the horizon.

Younger anons will never know the feeling of walking into a gas station or drug store and seeing an entire rack of gaming mags.

I remember owning the first issue of the Official Nintendo Magazine after it initially rebooted, although I'm not sure why it ever happened as a kid. I think people wanted a magazine that was more formal, although I think that sacrificed some of the charm from the old magazine.

I already talked about that though?

Chinese audiences want to see beautiful western actors in western movies, in fact a popularly cited reason as to why The Last Jedi bombed there was due to the fact that it did not have many attractive white people.

Are you okay?

As a kid, I would always go straight to the magazine section when we went to the grocery store.

Print is dying and video game magazines have become obsolete. I think most people who still buy them nowadays are either collectors, or people who grew up reading magazines.

Let''s just trick the Chinese to watch a movie with a black guy in it by making him smaller on the poster.

Only because the "advances of the future" are dumbing everything down to pander to the lowest common denominator and not writing stories that are interesting enough to warrant manuals with story info.
