    wow....EGM is the best all system game magazine...and PC Magazine is actually a good read.

    but with internet news, this was bound to happen. now what am i suppose to read on the airplane.

    I hope EGM doesn't close it doors. I don't like it much beyond the Seanbaby at the end but it's still habit to pick it up each month.

    Isn’t EGM one of if not the best selling game mag? You would think some one would want it, I just hope it doesn’t get changed to much there are no other multi-system mags I like any more.

    I stopped buying EGM and OPM a few months ago. EGM is my favourite gaming magazine though.

    Internet killed the magazine star.

    It's not as easy (usually) to read the internet on the shitter.

    I like EGM, on the rare case I buy a game mag. it is EGM, and 1UP.com so hopefully someone who knows what they are doing will buy them. My fear is that MTV (Viacom) will buy it and we will have a magazine that is to much like MTV. I know that the game industry has to appeal to the MTV hip-hop crowd but EGM and 1UP seems cool without having to go too far in that direction. I don't mind some of it but we need it to appeal to all.
