GI Show – Reliving 25 Years Of Game Informer History

by Ben Hanson on Oct 13, 2016 at 01:00 PM

Back in the fall of 1991, a video game retail store called Funcoland tapped the talents of an employee named Andy McNamara and Game Informer magazine was formed. On the magazine's 25th anniversary, we want to take a full walk down memory lane with the magazine's editor-in-chief Andy McNamara and executive editor Andrew Reiner. With 283 issues behind us, there's a lot of ground to cover, so we encourage you to click here and check out our full cover story gallery to follow along in the journey.

There are a million stories, details, and staff highlights we weren't able to get to in this episode; chief amongst them is Game Informer's publisher since 2001 Cathy Preston, who's done an amazing job keeping the magazine thriving.
