EGM's 1993 Super NES Holiday Shopper's Guide

Every year around this time I try to post an old holiday catalog of some sort. A few times I've posted Electronics Boutique catalogs and I might still do that but the one I've scanned is more than 80 pages and I still need to edit each scan before I can post it. This Super NES shopper's guide from Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) magazine is much smaller allowing me to get it ready in a couple days. EGM polybagged this guide with an issue, something it did on occasion for things like this, as well as strategy booklets, posters, etc. Although I've posted the ads previously, I opted to include them here. From what I can tell, this guide is simply a list of games available for Christmas and doesn't actually take into account whether the games are good or not. I guess that's why it is a "shopper's guide" rather than a "buyer's guide."

I'm also considering scanning parts of a FAO Schwartz catalog but may wait until next year. Those tend to be 80+ pages too and not all of the products in it are interesting (like toddler toys) so if I do that I might just highlight some things. I wonder if people would want to watch a YouTube video of myself flipping through a catalog; would that be too boring? Let me know if that's something you'd want to see.
