January 2021 - Final Issue - Year in Preview Monthly video game column published monthly in the Burstall Mainstreeter
I've got hundreds of pounds of video game magazines I bought during the 90s. I love them dearly. The layouts, personalities, corney ads, reader mail, rumours, reviews, covers and the period of information contained.
In the spirit of 'it's never too late', I decided to submit a full-page monthly video game article to my local paper to brighten some kids' day.
One year project and this page is updated monthly.
The final issue in the series of 12. This has been a really fun project to work on since every month I could submit whatever I wanted and lay it out however I felt.
It was exciting to see it printed in the monthly town paper along side articles I was so familiar with. I thought having a game column in there was cool and I hope there is some kid out there who thought so too.
I grew up reading a handful of game publications every month, just pouring over everything, even the legal small print (since there was easter egg text in Game Players that was fun). I wanted to be a part of that scene but never made the move. This has been that outlet to scratch the decades long itch and hoo-boy it was satisfying.
Each issue was a full month of info directly to the veins!
