I've written one review for the new Game FAN, and I was paid with no problem, so in that regard I have only positive feelings for my dealings with the new magazine.I was treated infinitely better by the new Game FAN than I was by certain British games magazines, some of which failed to pay me several thousand pounds, and others where the petty attitudes of certain editors threatened to derail my career.Terry Wolfinger's art was fantastic, even more so when you learn he's an artist who is colour blind - which I found astounding, and inspirational.Some have spoken negatively of Dave Halverson's business practices - I can't comment on this.One of the pieces of the history of Game Fan I'm really sketchy on, though, is the part where Ziff Davis game in.I've heard a few things - that Ziff tried to purchase the rights to the name Game Fan but failed, they purchased the rights but never used the name, and that they even ran for a short time before putting it down.All photos courtesy of those who posted them in the topic.I want to say: I have only respect and admiration for those featured here.
Now, I'm not so familiar with the end-of-days GFO crew, but I've never heard of Sam.
And then there were the games, of course, with some of the most amazing layouts imaginable.
Game FAN was a magazine unlike any other; a unique part of gaming's history, never to be repeated. Almost as legendary is THIS THREAD on The Next Level forums, featuring former Game FAN staff.
I have filtered out the comments of readers, to bring you 100% comments from Game FAN staff, or those that had direct interaction.
My reason: a lot of the follow-on topics, on other forums, ended up closing and the recollections were lost.
As well, saying that he was in charge of the "relaunch" of Game makes me wonder.
