    The AVGN pulls out and reviews as many video game magazines as he can find, except for Nintendo Power. From Atari Age, to GamePro, to some lesser known gaming magazines, the 80s and 90s were filled with great reads. The walkthroughs, reviews, previews, ratings... and the terrible ads. This is episode 166 of the Angry Video Game Nerd season 13.

when i was a kid i preferred Gamepros review style with the 4 faces and the level of excitement on the face determined wether the game was good or not. But as i got older i started to like EGMS review style with every editor stating their piece at the end of the review. And who can forget Sushi-X ?

6:57 - "Have you ever in your life suffered from video thumb?" I knew it as "Nintendo Thumb" and yes, as a kid my thumbs did get sore playing Nintendo games. I think maybe I was sliding around too much on the control pad, giving myself blisters or something. I think I ran into it a few times years later with the Playstation, probably because of that split D-pad it's got. But it hasn't been a problem for me since then.

So good, AVGN is by far the best thing on YT! I had many of the things in these mags, not that i was ever allowed to buy any of these mags :( I do wish i had that thumb thing, even now i still sometimes get this so-called "video thumb" when playing certain games on consoles.

It doesn't matter how crappy some of these magazines might look today. If you were a kid in the 80's and 90's, these were gold. You wanted every video game magazine you could get. It didn't matter if you owned the consoles, you just wanted to bathe in that video game goodness. EGM was your best bang for your buck. Sometimes they were half an inch thick or so, and always for the same $5! Meanwhile, Nintendo Power was always the tried and true, and something about them had this particular smell which is really nostalgic to me even today. Imagine the smell of money, but one for video games.

Ya know. The fact that I get the same nostalgic pang from the theme to AVGN that I get from most video game themes... It's already something that has been a big part of a LOT of people's lives.
