I sent this letter in today because after months of reading these two magazines I finally became so outraged (/had the time) that I finally wrote a letter to their official feedback email. Anyway, thought I'd share it with you. And fans of the now de-funked GFW Radio podcast may recognize where some of my anger has sprouted from.
Dear so called "Game""Informer",
I have a problem with the November and January issues (as the subject would imply). My problem pertains to the especially egregious November "2011 Holiday Buying Guide" and the "January Snowboard...Something." The January issue is particularly offensive because it's written as if it would be in the non-existent December issue. But then it also includes things like: Lego's, a Tom Tom, skateboards, shoe's, a watch, snowboard goggles (which repeat in January) and an android based tablet. I suppose my question is: What do these things have to do with Video Games? I feel as if (admittedly having a bit of "inside baseball" knowledge right now) that the Game Informer staff was sent a Samsung Galaxy Tab and (in due accordance with company law) then took the Tab in return for putting a little snippet inside the magazine. Frankly, I feel as if because I read your crap article I should receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab as well.
