From the 10th Annual Shorty Awards Best in Gaming

Remember being stuck on that one boss or level, and you just couldn’t figure out how to beat that part of the game. Thanks to the strength of the gaming community, normal folks like you and I can now watch some of the best gamers in the world play through parts of games we might find impossible. Plus, who doesn’t love hilarious color commentary, which is what many of these gamers provide.

If you're a video game maker or marketer looking for recognition for your use of social media to promote games enter the the Best in Games Shorty Award.
