I got my hands on a Video Games and Computer Entertainment after I owned Colecovision sometime after the crash in 1989.  Then it was the Turbo Play magazine when I got tg16 before I got NES.  No magazines until I was 15 and had a job.  In 1992 I began buying GamePro and EGM as well as comic books, Craked Magazine and Mad Magazine.

 

I never bought a Nintendo Power because it was just one big advertisement and I never realized Nintendo Entertainment System existed.

EGM by far. I read some Nintendo Power and occasionally picked up a Game Informer, but EGM was the shining city on a hill of my adolescent years. I would read those issues front to back until the pages wore out, getting far too excited for upcoming releases. I think those were truly the halcyon days of gaming journalism, I doubt it's heading back to that level of quality.

Hard to wear the pages out of the internet.

The first game magazine I bought was Game Player's April 1991. It had a review of M.U.S.H.A in it. However, EGM was the one I looked forward to the most. I waited with anticipation for each issue and I loved the import coverage, in fact I almost bought an import copy of Verytex for the Megadrive. However, I got cold feet so I stayed with domestic games for quite a while. I never threw away any magazine, however some got lost through the years. The magazine I miss the most was the "1992 Sega Genesis Buyer's Guide". That was my all-time favorite single magazine. It had reviews of Thunderforce 3, Wings of Wor, Gaiares, and several other greats. That was a pretty rare magazine. I wish I could find it again. I believe that issue was a Sendai publication.
