Video Games & Computer Entertainment
[ Publisher: Larry Flynt | Price: $2.95 | Format: Multi Platform ]
Today we're taking a look at Video Games & Computer Entertainment, a multi-format magazine that went head-to-head with GamePro and Electronic Gaming Monthly. With their lengthy reviews and in depth news reporting, Video Games & Computer Entertainment was one of the era's best magazines. Sadly, I didn't think that at the time. Find out why when you watch today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: As the title suggests, Video Games & Computer Entertainment covered both video and, well, computer entertainment. This gave the critics a unique perspective, as they would routinely compare console games to the newest PC releases of the time. And since many of the big innovations would come from computer gaming, the editors of Video Games & Computer Entertainment always seemed like they were ahead of the curve.

On Tomorrow's Episode: The 29 Magazines of Christmas may be coming to an end, but there are still plenty of magazines worth covering. Thursday brings our take on Game Players. Still want more?
