Looks like another fail from Jeff :(
Too be honest I dream of a day when Giantbomb and Destructoid merge. Destructoid's complete lack of good video content and Giantbomb's lack of community building tools are the only negatives of both the sites. If any one site could combine the 2...the internet would be over.
Giantbomb is easily the best new game site there is, and i think totally deserving of a best game oriented site of the year but maybe next years?

Man, screw voting for Gamespot. Gamespot, yo asses are gonna get kicked. I don't care who wins, they better lose. The only reason people are voting for them is cuz of the emblem bribe, which is real crappy and show how desperate they are.GO DESTRUCTOID! Not sure if you're as good as Giant Bomb cuz if they was nominated, we'd vote for them and I'd be shouting GO GIANT BOMB, but GO DESTRUCTOID!
Why? So happy to find this site. I think the lession is not vote for anybody, and see iff`n some others are doing okay, out there.
Voted for the escapist cos zero punctuation is the best there is
webby awards should go to new sites that are driving a new vision, not to a site that hasn't changed too much save for cancelling certain programs in years.
anything against gamespot, im in!
never heard of destructoid...until NOW!!!
I have already voted for Destructoid.

Lol. My favourite videogame site nominates my second favourite videogame site.
I wasn't going to vote because I don't really go to any of the sites on that list (I go to the Escapist for Zero Punctuation but that's it) but if you guys are rooting for Destructoid then it must have some good stuff on it. So I think I will vote now.
Must... OBEY!!!!... alright, done.
"@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)."
"Looking at that list I figured a win for The Escapist was already in the bag, and now having voted I see that they're in the lead. I think Zero Punctuation has a lot to do with that."
I wasn't sure who I should vote for at first, but because of escapists aggressive and unnecessary ads that asks you to vote for them (3 ads at the front page, a video before every movie, an ad that shows in the movie youre watching after that, a pm you get that asks you to vote for them...), Ill stay clear of them now...
Destructoid and Giant Bomb are my two favourite (and most visited) vidya games sites, so I wholly support this movement.
Cool. Destructoid is a good site.
I wish I could vote on the Webby's. They never returned my email when I registered.

They're way behind on votes. Escapist seems to have it in the bag. Voted for them either way.
I voted and now I feel a little dirty, must go shower.
Come on people, get voting for Destructoid! It only took me 1minute to sign up and vote.
I've already given my vote to The Escapist (aka That Website That Just So Happens To Have Zero Punctuation On It)
Destructiod is the much needed giant pink elephant that is in the room that is called the gaming "industry". A much needed elephant that unlike many other sites is not afraid to speak out and offend the people of the industry. Far to many sites are more or less bed buddies with the industry. The whole used game sales is hurting the industry meem among the writers/bloggers/journos is a disgraceful example of this.
Vote or die mother fucker, mother fucker vote or die! Rock the vote or else I'm gonna stick a knife through your eye, Democrocy is founded on one simple rule, get out there or I will mother fucking kill you, I like it when you vote bitch,(bitch) shake them tittes when you vote bitch,(bitch) I slam my jimmy through your mouth roof,(mouth roof) now get your big ass in the polling booth, I said vote bitch your I'll fucking kill you, Vote or die mother fucker, mother fucker vote or die!

Ive never been to destructoid before, but if giant bomb wills it, THEN LET IT BE SO.
Can't say I really like 'any' of the sites I saw nominated (in any category).I did do my GiantBomtriotic duty in voting for Destructoid. As long as neither IGN* nor Gamespot get it I'll be happy. *(who isn't on the list...)
I like Destructoid with the exception of Rev. and Sterling........wait I guess I don't like DESTRUCTOID anymore. I miss Workman and Summa :(I do however love Giantbomb without exception!
I was looking at the webby award site this morning and was going to vote for Giant Bomb but sadly it wasn't on the list. So instead I opted to not vote at all. I visit alot of other sites and enjoy the content but Giant Bomb is the only site that has me clicking my bookmark atleast 5 times a day just to see what kind of wacky stuff you guys got going on now. I say we do some write in votes for Giant Bomb. :D
Destructoid is certainly one of the best gaming sites on the web. They have my vote this time around.
If Giant Bomb endorses it, I endorse it.
for you, jeff? anything.
aha I see what you did there Zombutler, Dtoid is als- WHAT IS THIS I DONT EVENAlso, props to GB for endorsing Dtoid, that's the spirit of GB right there. Not nominated? ok, just support the guy who you think deserves it. GB and Dtoid are quite similar in a weird sense.
Until today, and that link, I had never been to Destructoid.com.I am nothing if not a sad creature of habit.
Hm...I like how Destructoid is set up. Community blogs and all. But I generally don't enjoy the community vibe there.Very angry bunch, when it comes to "I Found that news first!". When in fact that shouldn't be relevant at all. Also very biased, not fanboy-wise, but fast to shoot down different types of nerds (Wow players for example), when they are ones themselves. Also co.... cum and jizz jokes are uncomfortable and boring. No thanks.Anyways, I'd vote for Area5.tv and giantbomb.com if they were there.Two of the sites that carry what used to be the core of what made Gamespot and 1UP matter. (Both big name sites became drab and boring afterward.)
Destructoid is pretty good and fair, maybe a little too harsh at times. Site's also kind of a trainwreck as far as navigation, but nevertheless I can see why you wanted us to vote for them. And as much as I love yahtzee's reviews on zero punctuation, escapist is a yawn. So, until giantbomb is nominated, I'll vote for destructoid.
Thanks man! We really appreciate it!!!
Sorry, already voted for the Escapist.
I almost respect your decision, but Anthony Birch acts so much like a pms'ing 14 year old girl that the whole bunch is unfortunately spoiled. And come on now, the Escapist is a much higher quality product with 98% less penis jokes.
My two favorite entities in the gaming news joining forces? I'd lose my damn mind if it ever happened.
Done, and done. One vote casted for Destructoid. Here's hoping Giantbomb can get nominated for the next election.
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.
I'm not voting for no one!
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.
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.
Well, the non-voters better not complain about the results.(This will never happen)
