I do not get it, a video game issue, yet no video game locations or Arcades were awarded best of anything? In fact the issue has nothing to do with Video Gaming at all.  Well done New times, Well done.

@rmedina5 Not a "video game issue"- it's a"Best of Miami" issue with a video game theme. For example, last year's Best Of Miami issue had a Star Wars theme & that issue had nothing to do with Star Wars, except in theme... And there's only one arcade in Miami (at least one that's worth a damn), so maybe if MNT puts out an "Only of Miami" issue then it'll be on there- otherwise, it kind of defeats the purpose...
