Electronic Gaming Monthly (June 2007)


Source: Electronic Gaming Monthly – Issue Number 216 – June 2007

EGM ran for many years. By the time 2007 came along, I didn’t really pay that much attention to it anymore. Neither did many others apparently since it didn’t last as a print publication all that much longer. It wasn’t that it became a terrible magazine or anything, I just didn’t keep up with newer games like I used to and most of those who did, did so online. It’s still hard for me to believe that systems like the PS3 are a decade old. The June 2007 issue of EGM includes:
