Gaming Magazine Graveyard - Ten Mags that Died Fast

Kevin Gifford writes, "They couldn't find readers. They couldn't find advertising. Or maybe they just couldn't find a clue. We count down game media's biggest print flops."

"Starting a magazine, it's occasionally said, is a lot like opening a restaurant -- you can nail everything absolutely on the mark and still fail colossally."

"Since Electronic Games first debuted in 1981, dozens and dozens of video-game magazines have been launched by publishers all around the United States and elsewhere. A few of them were wildly successful; they're the ones like Nintendo Power and Electronic Gaming Monthly, still truckin' along after nearly 20 years. Others didn't quite make it -- because advertisers didn't like them, or it was the wrong mag for the wrong time, or maybe they were just plain unlucky."

The story is too old to be commented.

Actually neat little list, I honestly thought I would recognize one of the magazines listed, but they really must have been extremely low budget/production.
