Back in February 2014, we announced that The Escapist would be formally covering whole new facets of nerd culture. We've always talked about comics, or robots, or nerdy television shows like Game of Thrones, but this year we shifted to making those a core part of the website. Our five channels have expanded over the last year and we're super proud of the insightful articles and discussions we've had on each channel's podcast. So when it was time to start discussing our annual Game of the Year choices, it occurred to us that we should probably expand the scope to encompass all our channels.

Welcome to new Escapist Awards! Here you'll read all about the nominees for each category of games, movies, comics, tabletop games, and technology. We've nominated things like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Guardians of the Galaxy, Ms. Marvel and Dungeons & Dragons.

So without further ado, here are the categories we'll be presenting in The Escapist Awards for 2014. Click the category link below to get a list of the nominees or just scroll this article to see an overview of the best in geek entertainment this year. I hope you have as much fun reading about our nominees as much as we did arguing about what to put on this list!
