Nintendo Power has released it’s final issue.
Even though I have hardly kept up with the publication for many years(due to my lack of being into systems when they’re current; with the exceptions of the NES & SNES), it’s sad to see them go. This was the go to place for(Nintendo) video games in the years before the internet.
I have been a Nintendo loyalist since the NES arrived in my house. As time went on, Nintendo was everywhere you looked. In short, they were a big part of my childhood. I remember when the first issue arrived in the mail. I read that issue(as well as subsequent issues), from front to back countless times.
It was always a thrill to try the latest tips and tricks, and was always something to look forward to every 2 months(back in the early days).
Included with the final issue is a poster of every single issue of Nintendo Power. I’m actually thinking about getting it framed.
The cover is a great throwback to the first issue, and is a fitting choice for the final.
This isn’t a review(if I did review it, it would be insanely long). I just wanted to pay my respects to the only gaming magazine I really cared for.
But I will show a few pages to entice you to buy your own copy(or borrow it from one of your friends 😉 ).
So much good stuff!
So long, old friend.
