It was the infamous DieHard GameFan for me, which started around 1992 and was made by a bunch of sleep-deprived, caffeine-addled college students at 3 AM. Enormous fanboyism for Street Fighter II and the Final Fantasy games, glowing scores for scads of Sega Genesis action-platform games that have been totally forgotten by just about everybody today, nasty shots at other game magazines (they lamely "feuded" with EGM back in the early 90s...remember EGM^2?) reviewers who all used comic-book aliases and airbrushed character art, typos typos typso all oevr teh pLace, and the imfamous "little jap b*stards love to freak" bit:
GamePro had its own TV show, hosted by ultra-smiley TV host J. D. Roth, but I won't post clips.
Game Players, later Ultra Game Players, started around, I think, 1993 or so. They had a spin off publication too, called Next Generation which was overly obsessed with the f***ing Tomb Raider games, which I never liked for a second.
