As nostalgia returns in full force, the Video Game History Foundation offers consumers exclusive access to vintage video game magazines that transports them back to bygone days. The products are packaged on a monthly subscription basis in the form of a Mystery Box. Each box contains a random vintage video game magazine ranging in date from 1981 to 2010.
The older-style media appeals to generations—like Generation X—who grew up with monthly mailed magazine subscription services. These video game magazines are loaded with antique content like ads for old games or news updates from defunct developers. Proceeds from the sale of these Mystery Box magazines support the Video Game Foundation's efforts to preserve and archive video game history. The video game magazines are packed in Mylar bags and acid-free boards and include a certificate of authenticity.
