First off, congrats to our winner on SteamGifts! That winner isn't online at the moment, but once all the dust has settled from that giveaway and it's delivered, I'll edit this post for proper congratulations.

Now, what you've all been waiting for! This has been the hardest contest to judge. It came down to two entries. We were in agreement on who the top two were, but we agreed that both were equally awesome. So we decided to flip a coin to pick. BUT THEN we decided to throw that coin out the window and just buy a second copy!

Congrats to our two winners, Sparklepop and Nick_Donahoo!

Nick's post was beautifully written, and anyone who had yet to play the game could get a good feeling of Rapture from his amazing descriptions. The detail was amazing, and the analysis of the player being the monster in the Big Daddy's eyes was very poignant.

Sparklepop's post, on the other hand, was very personal and demonstrated why the game has the effect it does on people. She described the awe and wonder we all felt, and I think we can all relate to wanting to stay up to all hours of the night playing a highly anticipated game.

So, congrats to both of you! You're both awesome, and we're glad to have you!

To all the other contestants, we greatly appreciate your entries, and we're sorry we don't have a stack of 50 of these things to hand out.

Thanks everyone!

I also tried to get out raiding tonight in WoW so I could still be happy...even though wiping forever tonight won't phase me, I think!

If you kind folks would excuse me, I think I just wet myself. going to go change my drawers, and possibly do a silly dance.

@Spencer_Lingo: Id say around 30 on the site, but that's just a guess.

many thanks to everyone with their kind words. I doubted I was going to stand a chance, and I still feel like SparklePop trumped me, so the generosity of the folks that run this site is absolutely astounding. Ask my wife, I was still doing a silly dance about it this morning.

Sparklepop wrote on 03/26/2013 at 08:56pm

Yes, thank you for all the congratulations!

I'm still happy dancing over this. (But come on, who doesn't happy dance?!)
