Electronic Gaming Monthly (May 1993)


Source: Electronic Gaming Monthly – May 1993

Electronic Gaming Monthly was my second favorite gaming magazine behind VideoGames & Computer Entertainment. It was close though. EGMs sheer volume was amazing and they did a better job of covering new and upcoming games and systems including rumors than anyone. One of the earliest issues I bought had detailed coverage of the upcoming Super Nintendo CD add-on. Alas, that never came to pass. The May 1993 issue includes:


  • Insert Coin
  • Interface: Letters to the Editor
  • Review Crew
  • Software Calendar
  • EGM Top Ten
  • Gaming Gossip
  • EGM Express
  • Leading Edge
  • Game Doctor
  • Tricks of the Trade
  • Game Contests
  • High Scores
