Here's the link to the overall list, under the games section it's listed second after the escapist and on the overall 50 it's 42 (as long as i read the list correctly).

Former GameSpot editors Jeff Gerstmann and Ryan Davis are the brains behind Giant Bomb

They may be the brains but Vinny is the heart.

*Goes to the Escapist* I've never even heard of that site, gonna check it out now...

EDIT: OK, I don't get it, why is this site so great? The design stinks, and the content is nowhere near as unique as GB. I can get all of the info on that site from 10 other gaming sites.

Awesome. And there are only two proper video game editorial websites on there. The Escapist and Giant Bomb. Both well deserved too. The other sites in the games section are OnLive and an iOS game site and a flash game site. Great to see Giant Bomb up in there.

It's just hit me, I'm a Moderator on one of the 50 best websites in the world!!! YEAH!!!

EDIT: Posted about this on Reddit. I don't like to say "Hey, upvote me", because it's kinda douchey, but it might be nice if more people could be made aware of it.

Lower than the Escapist? Eugh.

I am not really a loathing person, but i absolutely loathe the escapist, and everything they do.

I still sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, screaming, thinking about the horror that is the escapist forums.

@thornie: i go there for Zero Punctuation and that's about it. i don't know how it stacks up against GB as i haven't really gone through their other content, then again that in itself is kind of telling.

i concur with that, the escapist is pretty funny but i never liked any other content on there and the site design is such a pain to navigate.

Oh wow, you guys weren't kidding about The Escapist's site design. I've watched plenty of videos on there (mostly ZP), but somehow I had never checked the front door until now. That's pretty ugly.

Brad is the Coccyx (tailbone) of Giantbomb, just there as a reminder of one's evolutionary past but actually useful for nothing.

@thornie: @Thoseposers: I somehow knew about the escapist when it launched (2006?).  Anyways, back then it was a small website but if you signed up (gave them your email) they sent you a weekly (or something) issue- in pdf format.  It was awesome, like 15-20 pages of good quality articles that weren't really gaming news related, so much as they were thoughtful gaming oriented articles.  If you dig around I don't think they do the cool pdf (nor do I get that via email anymore) but their articles are still situated into 'issues' but now they have all the extra video and news content.  If you ask me, I like zero punctuation but not much else, and the fact that they hide the articles, which are still good, makes me mad.  I honestly liked their pdf format, and until giantbomb came along with humor and news, I spent all my time reading either the escapist or evil avatar.

BAH! GiantBomb sold out their soul. I remember when GB used to be cool, now it's totally mainstream.

Just joking guys, good job. Keep up the great work!

Er guys, it's not ranked. It's just the 50 best websites, put into categories that are then alphabetised.

So congratulations to GB, well deserved.
