VideoGames & Computer Entertainment, while not as popular other magazines of the time like GamePro and Electronic Gaming Monthly, was always my favorite. It featured the writing/editing of Arnie Katz, Bill Kunkel and Joyce Worley who were involved with the original Electronic Games magazine.
I just found out Bill Kunkel died back in 2011 and Joyce Worley in 2016 :(
