Sad to see all these magazines being forced to close. EGM, Game Pro, Nintendo Power, Nintendo Gamer...

The real sad fact is that it's not always survival of the fittest, either.

The digital age takes some more victims.

In a way, it is survival of the fittest. Those that have adapted to both offering their magazine in a digital format, as well as giving enough unique content to worth subscribing, are still around.

I was
An avid reader of gaming magazines, but with everything from news to reviews available in abundance on the net there's just no point in them any more. Even if you don't have Internet at home, there's bound to be a library close by.

I guess you could say sites like n4g + internet helped kill gaming magazines.

Just look in the local walgreens. You'll hardly see anything game related there anymore.

You can get information for free now...This is inevitable and the gaming magazine industry isn't the only one suffering either.

Tabloids, newspapers, etc...

Again- why pay for something you wait to get in the mail that costs money when you can simply log online and learn instantly somewhere else? Digital publishing isn't the future, it's now.

Looks as the more popular tablets get, the more mags go . I hate to see good gaming mags get the boot.
