A magazine peddled by Gamestop to everyone that can't say no to their 10% off used game card offer. Most of the news tends to be outdated if you have an internet connection and the reviews tend to say "this game is awesome/sucks" by using as many words as possible. Useful for the pictures, sometimes interesting interviews, and the occasional exclusive. Has crushed the competition because of its unfair leverage as part of the Gamestop Empire.
Friend 1: Dude, did you see what they said in Game Informer about the new Halo?!
Friend 2: I already about read that a month ago on the internet.
Friend 1: Oh...
Friend 1: I have a Gamestop discount card! I also get a subscription to Game Informer.
Friend 2: Isn't that unfair to everyone else with a magazine that doesn't have a store tie-in?
Friend 1: I don't care, I just wanted that guy at the counter to shut up.
