While it is probably old news to many of you, after nearly 25-years of publishing the best Nintendo magazine in North America, they will be closing down production this year, with December's issue being the final issue of this legendary magazine. The final issue is currently on newsstands and as legacy gamers, especially if you fancy yourself a huge Nintendo fan, you should pick a copy or two up. I personally chose to buy two copies tonight, one to read and the other to keep factory sealed for collecting purposes. I have been a subscriber off and on over the years; subscribed from 1995 - 1996, and 1998 - 2004. My favorite thing about this magazine whie I subscribed were the awesome walkthroughs, reviews, and during the whole Pokemon craze of the late 90s, the Pokecenter section. More than anything, I remember getting very excited when I'd come home from school and find my copy in the postbox or on the kitchen table waiting for me. I used to read them front to back, and refer back to them for all sorts of reasons. While I gradually lost interest in the magazine over the past 5 or 6 years because of the direction the magazine went, overall Nintendo Power has a very special place in my heart. So my question is, who else on here was a Nintendo Power subscriber, or someone who frequently hit up the newsstands to get a copy? What were the things you liked about the magazine, or maybe didn't like? And mention any fond memories you have about Nintendo Power.
It's been awesome NP, thanks for a lifetime of video game greatness :)
