We all love the web here at The Verge, but there's something to be said for the nostalgia of classic gaming magazines — and it's not just because of the ads. If you're in the mood to head down memory lane you can check out the very first issue of Nintendo Power in PDF form. Published back in 1988, the debut issue features stories and hints on classic games like Super Mario Bros. 2 and The Legend of Zelda, not to mention a sweet RBI Baseball poster. A PDF isn't quite the same as holding the actual issue in your hands, but it's the next best thing — plus, you can finally learn how to knock out the champ in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
