Reader’s Annotation
Game Informer magazine is the monthly resource for everything that is new and great in the world of video games.

Critical Evaluation
This magazine has a strong appeal for teenage boys in providing the latest in video game news and reviews. It offers a great service to the video game playing population with strategies, game studio interviews, news about new and future games, and reviews of games so that people can see if a game is worth it before buying. With video games going for upwards of $30 a piece and the often limited budget of most teenagers, this magazine is a great resource to help gamers make decisions about which games to purchase and which to forget about.
