The Escapist provides some great gaming related content which I am always happy to read or watch. I especially enjoy their video game reviews.
Yet another venue for video gaming news and culture, Escapist magazine has a bit more of a claim to being the best of a big bunch because it won a Webby, back in 2008. And it's a huge, sprawling site with a great deal of news, reviews and other gaming content, including a magazine in there somewhere with several columnists and a comic and movie clips and a forum and plenty of reader comment.
Membership is optional, but signing up allows you to "enter contests, post comments, and simply be a more awesome person." No guarantees on that last one, though, I guess.
It tended to be a bit slower than I would like on my old laptop, but considering most of the pages are three to four screens deep, I can live with that.
Anyway, you've got to like it, just for the name.
