And you'll find that in order to maximise money spent on ads, game publishers will advertise their entire catalogue of games in a single ad, hardly something you see these days.
Here are some of my favourite ads, from the very first issue of EGM..and yeah, 1989 is the only other time besides the Cold War where you can hear the phrase Soviet Mind Game. LOL.
If you have not download the very first issue of EGM, it's available in PDF form at Retromags. Click here for details.
