Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) was a United States based video game magazine. It released 13 issues a year and was published by Ziff-Davis. The first issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly came out in the summer of 1989, and the last came out in December, 2008. EGM stuck mainly to the standard video game mag fare of news, previews, and reviews of current gen games and consoles as well as current gen handhelds. Their staff when the magazine was cancelled included Dan "Shoe" Hsu (editor-in-chief), Mark Macdonald (executive editor), Jennifer Tsao (managing editor), Crispin Boyer (senior editor), Shane Bettenhausen (previews editor), Demian Linn (reviews editor), Bryan Intihar (news editor), and Shawn Elliot (associate editor).
As video game journalism goes, Electronic Gaming Monthly was actually one of the more respectable gaming mags (which isn't really saying much).
In January, 2009, as part of the UGO buyout of 1UP.com from Ziff-Davis, EGM was cancelled, and many of the staff that worked on it were laid off.
