As an avid gamer and reader, I'm sometimes hit hard by the lack of insightful, well-written articles in the video game area of our culture. There are few writers and fewer websites that often the kind of content I'm looking for. The Escapist is one of them. Some argue that I could read this stuff on the web for free and that is true, but there is something deeply satisfying about reading articles about games I love(d) in bed, outside, on my lunch break AWAY from my computer. Whatever that feeling is, The Escapist is something I look forward to every week and I might die without.
I actually wish it was more than $3/month so I could feel like I was giving [..] the money they deserved.
