    ALASKAN EAR PULL!

    Yeah, that was Casey Lowe. The Unofficial FF7 Guide, the RE2 guide, the MGS guide, the Ocarina of Time guide... like I said, the best guides ever.

I have nothing but respect for your contributions to the birth of GameFan (not least of which was singlehandedly creating the GF style), and everything that came after. It goes without saying that Dave couldn't have created GameFan without the talented people that surrounded him. I simply mean to say, the man started us all down our path in the game industry, however indirectly it may have been. You began with that first catalog and ads, I began by basically hanging around Gamers' Club. (And oh, how I pined after those ads you did in EGM! I'd stare at those things for hours when I was like 12 and 13, marvelling at their intricacy. It was as if a whole new world of gaming I never knew existed was opening up before me...and I guess it was.)
    Thank you for the flattery. Of course I was not single handedly responsible for the style. Dave would say what he wanted and George, Terry and I would deliver it. So, what emerged was a group effort, not purely a Halverson creation. Swap out Terry for a different artist or George and I with different layouters and the results would have been very different. Maybe better, maybe worse, but not the same GameFan that emerged. I will take 100% credit for the screen shot quality, though. ;-)

    If I had not been willing to trade ads for games, make the magazine for free with my own equipment, and stubbornly stay at GameClub creating the first issue alone for a week while Halverson hid at home afraid to deal with how to pay me, GameFan would never have happened. When I arrived Halverson didn't know the first thing about computers, couldn't type and barely knew the basic rules of spelling and grammar. My drive to make a magazine and my ability to do it is what got Halverson started in the magazine making business. I've seen him post in public that I was one of the many people he got started in the business and that I didn't even know how to work in color before I met him, as if he somehow made it possible for me to do that. Fuck that. That's such a typical Dave Halverson disconnect from reality. He took advantage of my skills to start a magazine, lied to me to get me to give them freely, and only barely compensated me for it all in the end because he was 50% dependant on me to make the magazine for him at the time I discovered he was screwing me over.

    If I hadn't met Halverson I'd still be doing what I do today. If Halverson hadn't met me or someone like me to make a magazine for him, he sure as hell wouldn't be making magazines by himself without a few more years of hen pecking at a keyboard at the very least.

    Edit: So Halverson did not start me on my path, we all started down the same path together. As for talking crap about him, come on. The man deserves crap for the shit he pulled. Yes, he did it only to make a great magazine, and a great magazine indeed came out of it, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't give him shit for it. He gave us 10x the level of shit he's getting back.

    This kind of stuff is why I miss the way Gamefan was when you guys were all there. It's cool to hear what everyone's been up to since then... man, who knew that this thread would have turned out like this when it started? Insanity. After I thought it was dying down it keeps getting interesting again.

Nice to have you on the boards, I hope you enjoy your stay. One question though, Nick: how do you feel about Metal Gear Solid 2?
