Noteworthy Stuff:

  • Despite the big #1 on the cover and spine, this is really issue #4.
  • This issue has two covers. People who bought the magazine from a comic shop got the one displayed (Shi, Lady Death, and Vampirella), while those who got it off the newsstand got a Mortal Kombat III cover.
  • Barbi Twins Adventures sold so poorly for Topps that they never printed issue #2. Sorry, Sia and Shane...back to the calendar with you.
  • Top 100 lists are always sure to raise a stink, but at least the editors explain their reasons behind their selection for every game, so it's not just a quick-and-dirty list.
  • Basic Programming (2600) is considered one of the worst games of all time by the editors. Isn't that kind of like naming your C# compiler as one of your least-favorite video games? Why waste a space on something that wasn't meant to be a game, but rather a learning tool, guys?
  • If you ever wanted to know what it was like growing up in the 90's before anime was available on every street corner and streaming online service, take a look at the titles from the Animania list and get to watching. Most of their ratings for these are spot-on.
  • It's doubtful anybody considered Van Halen to be "America's heavy metal heroes" even in 1995...
