I had forgotten about my account on The Escapist for some time, when one of my closest friends ( who is currently away for college ) hit me up on AIM.
"hey dood, you should check out the escapist. it's some funny british guy doing videos."
after the former escapist geek in me corrected him ( "That's just Zero Punctuation. The Escapist has so much better stuff." ), I got the idea for this thread.
What is The Escapist to you?
Describe The Escapist in one sentence.

Mine: Opinionated geeks make dumb jokes and hate Transformers in harmony.

Sophisticated, if a little intolerant, community full of many differing views and races who make up a awesome user base.

A community full of well rounded people who always state their opinions well with the occasional PC fanboy telling me how I am actually delusional because I prefer consoles.

Intelligent, sensitive young adolescents congregate to ***** and whine about things we cant possibly know about.

I can't think of a way to summarise the variety of people in any interesting way, so I'll just be jokingly derogative and say that this is what goes through everyone's minds:

"We like the right popular things."

Something like that. I'd also add in a few clauses about parroting Yahtzee, acting misanthropic, and hating CoD, as well as people who feel superior for liking or not liking any given product, and people who push their opinions as fact. (Though you'll get the last three almost anywhere you go involving the internet.) Oh, and ponies.

One sentence about the escapist?

Hmmm.

"This is a website concerning things that are and are not video games."

"Not enough people check out the User Reviews section."

Well, that was easy. ;)
