Electronic Gaming Monthly (often abbreviated to EGM) was a monthly American video game magazine. It offered video game news, coverage of industry events, interviews with gaming figureheads, editorial content, and product reviews.
The magazine was founded in 1988 as U.S. National Video Game Team's Electronic Gaming Monthly under Sendai Publications. In 1994, EGM spun off EGM², which focused on expanded cheats and tricks (i.e., with maps and guides). It eventually became Expert Gamer and finally the defunct GameNOW. After 83 issues (up to June 1996), EGM switched from Sendai Publishing to Ziff Davis publisher. Until January 2009, EGM only covered gaming on console hardware and software. Source
