As long as that site with the really late reviews and shitty staff doesn't win I'll be fine ;).
I vote for Giant bomb, not Destructoid
Why can't we vote for Giant Bomb?
Escapist has my heart. I'm sorry.
Nice. I visit them for news everyday.
Cashwhore have anything to do with that endorsement? :p
LMAO @ The Kane & Lynch Reference. Love it.
No Giant Bomb, no vote.
Already voted for destructoid.
Goodness, I think I speak for the rest of the staff when I say we're flattered. And if you're trying to get in our pants, this is definitely the way to do it, Jeff. Also, with pictures of bats. Lots and lots of pictures of bats.
Seriously, thank you. :)
Why would I vote for Destructoid when I could have voted for Giant Bomb? Well, if you endorse it, I endorse it.
The only people that would care to vote for a particular gaming website in some sort of awards show way are the same people who probably visit all these gaming sites in the same day anyway. I know I visit Joystiq, Kotaku, Destructoid, and even GoNintendo separately every day. Therefore, I don't get the point of these "webbys." Are you really going to get that many more readers for this recognition, when the people who pay attention to this stuff are already going there?
Then again, I don't visit Gamespot anymore, and they're also nominated.
I'd vote for GB but
Is this is because I bought you that free beer that one time?
awww I have to register to vote, laziness ftl.
Giant Bomb isn't a Vote, well the webbys can get the fuck out then! .......BLAT BLAAAAAAAAT!!!
I have voted. I should now actually go to Destructoid to see what I just did.
destructoid is a pretty cool guy
YES! Destructoid and GiantBomb are by far the best gaming sites out there.
I guess I can get behind destructoid.
I'm Canadian so registering to vote is an unknown concept to me.
Done. Also, it looks like the Escapist is in the lead. Unexpected!
I would vote for GB but since GS is on there, I will vote for Destructoid so that GS can lose. Also, YO FIFTY, VOTE FOR DESTRUCTOID MAN!!!!
I can't help but wonder if there is any incentive for a website to get a Webby award. Seems like other sites damn near beg for votes, as if it shows advertisers how awesome they are.
Destructioid was possibly my favorite gaming site till I discovered the awesomeness that is Giant Bomb.
I will respect the wishes of the best gaming website out there (GiantBomb.com, duh!) by voting another site into superiority.
I'm not sure why that makes sense, but it just does.
Going to be voting, just for you Giantbomb.com S2
Destructoid is a crazy time. Ron Workman is still a true American hero, even if he isn't at the site anymore.
"I already voted for Destructoid, when I found Gamespot was being assholes and giving away emblems to users voting for them. And besides, the Webby Awards stink for even nominating GS over Giantbomb."That's no different from most emblems GameSpot gives away. But this one takes a lot more effort, since I have to register an account, and comment in a thread. That alone means I won't do it. Do emblems really mean that much to people? It's all about the meaning behind your emblems, not how many you have. If you don't want to vote for GameSpot then you probably don't want an emblem indicating you did so, hm?
Well, if I can't vote for my #1 favorite gaming website I guess I'll just have to settle for my other #1 favorite gaming website (listening to the Podcastle as I type this, btw).
Alright, registering now. And while I love the Escapist, their community sucks a nut. THEY'RE GOING DOWN. G-BOMB 4 LYFE
Hm, Destructoid a cool dude and all but Giantbomb gave me a free shawarma once so...
Thanks, guys — we're unbelievably flattered and humbled that you would do this. Keep up the great work yourselves!
@LordAndrew: The prize isn't a bribe for votes. You don't even have to have voted for us to be eligible — the contest just asks people to write our five-word Webby Award speech for us (it's the speech we'll give at the awards ceremony if we win). The contest has nothing to do with that, since the Webby Award itself is separate from the People's Voice Award (the latter is voted on by internet users, whereas the Webby itself is chosen by ... the Webby committee, I guess).
No Giantbomb, no thanks.
I don't vote EVER.
Give me Giant Bomb Webby's or give me death.
I would go through all that for Giant Bomb. I SO wouldn't for Destructoid.
Obviously, the REAL best Game related website is Giant Bomb. But the universe works in mysterious, stupid ways.
Maybe next year.
I ended up voting for The Escapist. Destructoid just seems.....rude. Bad Rude
The best games-related website is Giant Bomb... but that isn't nominated.
Somehow voting for Destructoid instead doesn't seem right to me when I don't read it. Perhaps I should put Destructoid and the Escapist on my browsing circuit to see which one I like more.
If you dont vote your a communist!

"If you dont vote your a communist!"I'm not a Communist! I just don't feel like wasting my time.
I just ended up voting for the Major League of Gaming.
Well, the non-voters better not complain about the results.
(This will never happen)
Thanks a lot. I went ahead and registered and voted for Destructoid and now I'm going to be here all night voting on the other stuff.
Also, it seemed like a kinda random list of nominees for best game-related website.
When I posted my comment saying how I wasn't feeling Destructoid, I totally wasn't aware that they FEATURED MY ARTICLE ON THE FRONT PAGE.
As such, I officially change my opinion, because the fine men and women of Destructoid are obviously titans in the game media, and they deserve this victory.
I'm not voting for no one!
What's good about Destructoid? This isn't an insult, as I've rarely been there. I'm not sure who the nominees are, but I'd choose probably choose 1UP or IGN since Giantbomb isn't up there. I don't like 1UP as much as EGM back in its glory days, but they've got some great new blogs on RPGs and Retro games. Surprisingly, they're interesting reads even though I often disagree with the writers' opinions. IGN is a little more corrupt (but not as bad as Gamespot), but they cover the most games, and have some interesting 'history of games' articles sometimes, so I have to give them some credit. As far as reviews go though, Giantbomb demolishes the competition. I just wish they'd cover more RPGs.
Done, and done. One vote casted for Destructoid. Here's hoping Giantbomb can get nominated for the next election.
