There used to be a time when gaming magazines were a big part of our beloved industry. However, with the rise of digital media, the majority of video game magazines have called it quits or moved online. However, I long for a day where physical, print gaming magazines live on — and that’s why I’m creating From Gamers Magazine!
There’s just something special about gaming magazines. If you’ve ever subscribed to one, you know what I’m talking about. Constantly checking your mail to see if the latest issue has arrived, flipping through the pages and smelling that new magazine smell, and of course, reading unique and interesting perspectives are just a few things that made these magazines special. I miss those days, don’t you?
Well, I’m hoping From Gamers can bring back a little bit of that joy into our lives and do so in an exciting way. I sure hope you’ll join us for the ride!
What is From Gamers Magazine?
From Gamers Magazine is similar to gaming magazines in the past, but is entirely focused on current-generation gaming. That’s not to say that we won’t have retro reviews or retrospectives on older games, it just means that the majority of our content will be focused on current events, releases, and upcoming games.
In addition to the focus on present-day gaming, From Gamers is a community-driven publication. This means that anyone and everyone that has a good grasp of the English language and has an ability to put their thoughts into words is welcome to pitch our magazine. If you have an idea, motivation, and drive to share your passion with the gaming community, we’d be more than happy to hear from you.
If you’d like more information on submitting a pitch for Issue 1 and 2, please send me a message and I’ll get you the information you need.
