After the video game crash of 1983, video gaming was taking the world by storm, and Nintendo was at the forefront of the industry. One of the most iconic aspects of Nintendo’s early dominance was their magazine, Nintendo Power shepherded by Howard Phillips and Gail Tilden. For years, this publication was the go-to source for news, reviews, and tips about all things Nintendo. It was a beloved part of gaming culture, and many fans have fond memories of reading each issue cover to cover.
