Electronic Gaming Monthly has been a part of my life now since 1989, so the news of EGM closing it's doors for good has me feeling a deep loss.
I have been an on and off subscriber since 1989 (when I was just 7 years old). Even when I wasn't subscribed, I would purchase every issue at the newsstand. I was such a fan, I even had a subscription to EGM2. Years of reading Shane, Sushi-X, Quartermann, etc., all gone.
EGM started the Video Game April Fool's joke, with it's Sheng Long hoax. Another memorable April Fools joke, was unlocking Nimbus in the original Mortal Kombat for Sega Genesis, which I literally spent days trying to unlock before my next issue came, and I realized I'd been had. The April Fool's joke is just one of the many ways EGM has entertained me over the years."
