There are some lazy reviews in this issue. Donn Nauert's Q*Bert review says that it's just like the arcade game. Likewise, his review for Flying Dragon is, "Just another karate game." Ed Seimrad's review of Hydlide has him admitting he doesn't even remember what the game was about! Like...isn't that kind of your job to know that stuff, dude?

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.
