GamePro (August 1997)


Source: GamePro – August 1997

The mid to late 1990s was one of the most prolific times in video game history. 16-bit systems were still going strong, as well as 32-bit systems from the established Nintendo and Sega. In addition, there was the new kid on the block, Sony, with their PlayStation. This issue of GamePro from August 1997 is a good representation of the chaos that was gaming in the late 1990s.
