Until now, sites that won the Lifestyle Webby Award were typically nominated for featuring commentary, commerce and advice on lifestyle and living topics such as gardening, home improvement, architecture and the like. This year, The Escapist is the first games publication to be included in the Lifestyles category for the Webbys, and weíre asking for your help. Help us show the Webbys and the world that games arenít just for kids, they arenít just fodder for the evening news and they arenít a waste of time.

Gaming is an interactive art form that enriches lives, and gamers now have the opportunity to demonstrate their passion. From AAA to independent, PC to console, FPS to MMO and hardcore to casual, we are asking all gamers to help us show the world that united, we are strong.

This isn't about The Escapist. This is about celebrating ourselves as gamers. Tell your friends and colleagues and cast your vote. Together, we can all win!

The Escapist has also been honored as a nominee for this year's best Games-Related site, along with 4 other excellent sites with whom we are proud to share this space.
