The history of GameStop
The store that would one day become GameStop was called Babbage's, and it was located in Dallas, Texas. Back then, it sold software, but it quickly found its footing when it included video games in its offerings, too. After a series of mergers, the store that had been Babbage's was rebranded GameStop. Today, there are over 7,000 GameStop locations.
GameStop has its very own magazine
If you're a big gamer or fan of video games, then you've probably heard of Game Informer magazine. But did you know that it's owned by GameStop? That's why you can always buy a subscription at their stores.
The magazine is released monthly and features information about video games, including news, strategy and gameplay tips, articles, reviews of newly released games, and reviews of gaming consoles. It sells nearly 7 million copies every single month, making it the U.S.'s fourth-biggest magazine.
For big gaming fans, if you buy a subscription to the magazine, you get granted access to exclusive content on their website that's only for subscribers.
Don't miss the annual Game Infarcer issue in April, which is a silly, satirical take on the magazine issued in celebration of April Fool's Day. They also have awards for the best games of the year, which are definitely worth a read.
