1Up/EGM is what got me interested in gaming media as a whole. The 1Up Show, 1Up Yours, etc., are what got me paying attention to gaming media. It led me to Giant Bomb too, which is now my favorite thing ever, probably. It did this by making me search around on the Zune marketplace (I know...) for gaming podcasts that were highly ranked, which led me here. It's a shame to see them go, but I would have bet money that they would already by dead by now.
