Next Generation
[ Publisher: Future Publishing | Price: $4.99 | Format: Multi Platform ]
The series finale brings a special look back at Next Generation magazine, one of the most influential publications of all time. Between a focus on the business side of the industry and confrontational interviews, Next Generation was unlike anything American gamers had seen before. See why we're still feeling the effects of Next Generation.



Excerpt: The monthly publication was also more confrontational than other magazines. This is largely because Next Generation was the American spin-off of Edge, a popular UK magazine with a reputation for harsh reviews. The editors of Next Generation brought that aggressive British sensibility to the States, leading to some of the best interviews you'll ever read.
