Join Us! GameSkinny Celebrates Word of the Year Award Winner: Selfie

So, so thankful that Twerk didn't take the title. Let's celebrate!

Selfie was just named Word of the Year by the Oxford Dictionaries, thanks to a 17,000% increase in it's use since last year. To celebrate, we here at GameSkinny are sharing some of our selfies.

Want to join in? Tweet us your selfie to @GameSkinny or tag us on Facebook and we'll add you to the slideshow!

Before we begin, let's all take a moment and be glad that runner up, 'twerk' failed to take the title.

...Whew. That was close. This slideshow would have been WAY more awkward.

Here goes!
