I got a little nostalgia itch this morning for print gaming magazines and looked to see if I could get a subscription. Not for any reason in particular, just that I remembered the joy of getting a new Nintendo Power in the mail each month and wanted to see if I could recapture that feeling. But alas, it seems that the gaming print industry is dead here in Canada. However, I did notice that there are still some print outlets remaining, most notably Game Informer in the US.
So does anyone here have a print subscription? If so, what’s keeping you paying money for these magazines? Are they still printing news and insights that the internet press does not provide? How is the quality of the paper stock and are the layouts interesting to look at? Let me know!
