EGM is finally dead, with booty and boobies taking its place
From Ars Technica:
Electronic Gaming Monthly has been buried, but not before someone takes the time to spit on the grave one more time. Instead of getting gaming news, you'll be getting nearly naked ladies.
As the writer of the article from ars said, i grew up with EGM. Their cover art alone was amazing but the reviews and additional sections were great. Sad day indeed when a little piece of your childhood dies.

thats too bad, sucks though what their replacing it with though... some people just don't like looking at Maxim period... only thing I ever look at when I see it around (work, around town, at a friends house) is check out the chicks in it, thats it.
anyways, I remember EGM when I first started to buy their mags on newstands when I was in High school, around 1993/1995 era, with my SNES, Atari Jaguar and N64 systems I had, as well as my brothers Genesis.
I might of bought a few issues prior to that too. although I did buy a few GamePro and Nintendo Power Mags back then, I had a 6 month or 1 year subscription to Nintendo Power for a while, but once that was used up (was a free subscription, and couldn't afford to renew it at regular price), so started to buy this new mag called EGM, that had lots of info about other game systems I wanted and more and newer games coming out for SNES, that N Power didn't cover or bother to mention aside from the new releases in the back to be out over the next year.
I still have one of the Starfox editions of Nintendo Power, but was one of the last ones I got too.
but I know I have a box somewhere with all the EGM, GamePro and other mags I bought over the years.
but by the time 97/98 came around I was already getting interested in PC gaming and started to buy Computer Gaming Monthly, CGM, their sister mag, stumbled across it one day when all the local stores were out of stock of EGM, and saw MechWarrior 2 on the cover...
from that day on EGM's days were numbered in my collection. but still bought it on and off again for the next few years. and still occasionally over the years, but if I did buy any console mags, it was Xbox Magazine.
but I do miss the old console Mags like EGM from back in the day, EGM, Game Pro, Nintendo Power, etc.
with PC magazine Dying this year/last year, only to be continued on in web format online (does no good for those with no internet, or temporary no internet), but some other great old school mags that have fallen by the wayside over the last decade or so, this is just one more to add to the list.
is sad though, remembering EGM as it was back in the old days, to know that its gone now forever, even if its gone down hill over the years compared to what it was in its beginning.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green

In the past 10 years or so EGM has been a shadow of it's former self. It's ironic since Maxim is in the same boat, both started out massive and slimmed down with increases only in ads.
