There's no real criteria for explaining how the Top 10 Games were ordered the way they were, or who was responsible for picking them in the first place. A letter column in the first issue? Well, all the reader response comes from the original EGM '89 Buyer's Guide, which is kind of like their Issue 0. One lucky winner in EGM's Great Game Giveaway contest takes home more than 50 NES games. Tecmo Bowl blows John Elway's Quarterback off the field, as it should. The TAXAN Videodiction newsletter is formatted to look like an article from the magazine, though it's completely a production of TAXAN's in-house ad team. Sneaky, sneaky, guys... This early in the game, EGM's juggling both console and home computer software. They'll cut the home software aspect to go console-only before too long. A subscription to EGM runs $19.95 for 12 issues, according to this issue's subscription ad. The Konix Slipstream (later renamed the Konix Multisystem) was cancelled after the company ran out of money. EGM editor Donn Nauert sure gets around...he has high scores submitted to the APA across multiple platforms from multiple cities in Texas and California.

Winners of the Excellent Nintendo Sweepstakes take home a full compliment of Activision-published NES carts: The Three Stooges, Stealth ATF., Predator, Ghostbusters, and Super Pitfall. Apparently losing this contest was the only way to win it. The incorrect passwords for The Goonies II and Metroid which were printed last issue are corrected in this one. The editor promises more Sega "coveage" in a response to letters requesting it. Proofreaders? We don't need no stinkin' proofreaders... Last issue, a subscription to GamePro cost $19 per year, a savings of roughly 10% off the $3.50 cover price. If you bought in at that price, you're a sucker because in this issue, a subscription only costs $13.97 per year, while the cover price has gone up to $3.95. Looks like that sweet ad revenue is flowing in! "The Adventures of GamePro"'s conceit basically rips off 1984's The Last Starfighter, right down to the video game mastering protagonist being named 'Alex' in both. Who's bright idea was it to run the screenshot of the Metroid password in S.W.A.T. right across the gutter fold?
