Why does everybody hate Game Informer?


It's made and run by GameStop.


Also it's just a terrible publication.

Their reviews aren't great or informative, but they have decent insider information about upcoming games.

Game Informer exists to help a glorified pawnshop move its merchandise. I don't find it a credible source.


Hmm, their review scores seem to be here and there as well.

They gave Paper Mario 2 a 6.75, for example. That's an example of a bad GI review score.

An example of good GI scores would be the PS2 Ratchet & Clank games. Up Your Arsenal got a perfect score iirc, which I actually think was well deserved.

I didn't quite know what you were asking, so I answered for all of them.

Well.... Reading it is fun, and can be a valuable resource for learning things about upcoming games.

Gamestop is a good store, I've had nothing but good experiences there, and they have a good selection and some pretty good prices.

The online portion of Gameinformer is great. They have lots of entertaining things that go beyond what the magazine does.

Game informer seems to rate western games much higher than eastern games.

GameStop is a good store. I've never had a problem with any of the games I bought there.

Game Informer is an awful magazine. They're only accurate before a game comes out.

I use Game Informer when I'm out of toilet paper.
