Inspired by @erinflusche THE FIRST MAGAZINE I BOUGHT, I unearthed this from an old box buried beneath other old boxes. In the words of Super Mario 64, heeere we goOOOoo
  1. Mario Tennis 64 graced the cover
    E69abae4 0630 46e6 8ce3 547dc6347a3d
  2. Fun fact: Waluigi debuted in Mario Tennis 64, and the game marks the first appearance of modern Princess Daisy
    C0fa4275 f9c6 4006 bc33 49989a39df83
    But really slapstick Wario humor is what sells magazines
  3. A dated Wal-Mart ad opens the magazine
    7277dd09 aae9 46ab b9e2 51b21392b467
    "The best games can't always be found on the playground." "Sure beats tetherball, doesn't it?" Zachary, ignore Wal-Mart.
  4. Godzilla 2000 IN THEATERS THIS SUMMER
    0fd64576 5e11 4780 b574 3b6a35bcaaa7
  5. Anti-tobacco ad asking readers to rip out cigarette ads in other magazines. Invokes Gandhi and Mother Teresa
    F687d36d 1055 4b75 a0bc 739768b6e413
    Guerrilla marketing for destructive pre-teens
  6. Ad for Pokemon binders
    F4f61d35 eb9a 4e22 a642 34e1df30e168
  7. Ad for Pokemon Burger King Big Kids meal toys
    46ba954c 67cb 4486 b637 4894dbda46d7
  8. Ad for Pokemon the Movie 2000
    987e7195 8e8b 4ab7 bdb1 5a0d91e1618e
    'EM ALL
  9. Ad for "Pokemon Stuff"
    28b0e02f acc8 47dc 8270 d3a3f35f9227
    The height of Pokemania. And Kellogg's probably made a killing on their Pokemon syrup pourer and Nutri-Grain Pokemon CD-Rom
  10. This one's weird. An ad for Netgen Card, a parental control modified credit card for "independent teens"
    A4eb140c d428 4081 bf5d da4a99261300
    And as of right now there's virtually no online trace of this company or product. This entire concept does not smell right. The ad's adult baby motif makes me uncomfortable
  11. A poster for a Donald Duck video game
    934e2ac6 1c88 4894 9775 4fad23e8cd47
    The typeface insinuates he's cussing. Nice
  12. An ad for a video game console repair service
    14c10a16 a91c 4263 b35a d90c7342d457
    Only $30 if your sad GameBoy melts
  13. A review section which reviews such timeless games as:
  14. Rugrats: Totally Angelica
    16443e93 1443 438e ada3 d9c6420c6cab
  15. Pocket GT Racing
    54d366b8 cc4a 48f8 8fee 09c426583f00
  16. Space Marauder
    7cd50cce b8f3 4178 b600 0e9ce68186f3
  17. Mary-Kate & Ashley: Get a Clue!
    406bbe60 211f 4dea 8842 d84d6baa016c
    Girl Gumshoes?
  18. NASCAR 2000
    790858d3 a120 45d1 a93f 643aa88e0bef
    Loaded with Options?
  19. Gobs of Games
    301602db 52a3 4c2a ad0d 8f5ad50a9622
  20. ESPN Track & Field 2000
    Ec549d77 93fb 4a61 95b3 429cc1a1565d
    "Agony of De Feet"??
  21. Jimmy White's Cue Ball
    7d87ea5c b27d 4f96 97cc 701f240101b4
    "Smooth like Buttah"??
  22. Credit to the magazine's writing staff for, as evidenced above, doing their thing.
  23. And credit to Nintendo and Mike Myers collaborating to give the world an Austin Powers Game Boy game.
    D4be70bf af9b 4efa b582 96e0f1db7c75
  24. Nintendo Power was pretty sweet back in the day.
