The two magazine covers that I have chosen were the Game Informer Magazine (Love) and the Game Pro Magazine. They have many similarities such as when you look at it you can obviously tell they are both video game magazines. The MAIN difference they they do have is Game Informer goes in depth of a new game release whereas Game Pro is less detailed but supplies a lot of images and screen shots of new games. That's what I have noticed any way since I have been subscribed to both of them for several years now. The Game Informer cover image has a symbol for the new game Elder of Scrolls (Comes out soon so pre order.) Game Pro has an Image for Halo (this is an older edition magazine so this one is dated.) Normally what both of these Magazines do to get there cover image is they pick the top release of the month and advertise that nothing less then perfect in my opinion.
Fonts and headlines are basically the same although the cover image is the only thing that will change. Basic Times New Roman is utilized throughout the magazine. They do tend to both color in the top headlines though. Last but not least the last difference that I notice which is a big one for me is that Game Informer in the end of the magazine has the best to worst games of the month and Game Pro has cheats for this months games.
