This is what The Escapist used to look like.
(On the side, how AWESOME is the Archives website!)
I remember when the Escapist Magazine was a really clean and lean .. machine. It was a games magazine without the ads for light-speed graphics cards. It was a comic without ads about getting sand kicked in your face. It was TV without ads for beer and lotto and ..
Stopping now. I guess, what I loved about reading the Escapist, the old Escapist, was this:
It was like watching your favourite TV show on DVD. No ads. Nothing but the content you were reading.
It’s not any more (and it happened quite a while ago).
This is what The Escapist looks like now.
