I used to think Game Informer was a rubbish PR rag, until I actually read it. It is well written and has interesting reviews. I thought it was biased, then I saw that GI refuses publisher perks and fly's it's own staff out to events.
I'm still on the fence about the magazine, but it seems they have some standard of journalistic integrity. I see magazines as the source for information and writing you can't get anywhere else (A measured breath of fresh air in the video game world). I read gaming magazines such as Edge, Retro Gamer and GamesTM.
What is your opinion of the magazine?
