Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    “Also, if you didn’t win, don’t worry – you can buy this board at rAge and stand a chance to win an Apple Watch.” Why must we be punished for buying it?

          • VampyreSquirrel

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            NOTHING

          • Grand Admiral Chief

            xD

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Wow, that’s a bad cough….

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Wow… I entered with about 7 email addresses and didn’t even get into the top 15? RIGGED! 😛

    • Wow I entered like 3 times and also didn’t even pop up, Haven’t even seen these people comment on here before unless they’re using real names.

    • Grand Admiral Chief

      7 email addresses….did you pull a Llew?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        No wonder he wasn’t lucky.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Nope, I’m not in 7th place… maybe 77th?

  • 16th… close enough

    I’m so angry, I’m posting this picture as punishment

    • Weanerdog

      You are so angry you can’t even attach an image

      Edit, I just needed to refresh for the pain

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I figured it’s because he’s so angry he’s speechless, and a thousand words is a lot when you’re speechless.

      • Grand Admiral Chief

        You need to refresh the page

    • oVg

      DEAR GOD

  • oVg

    Can it run Star Wars at 120fps 4k ?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Yes. And Crysis at the same time. 😛

      • oVg

        Sighhh… to think it was not that long ago that Crysis was the benchmark for modern gaming. Who would have predicted back then that a console would run an open world game at 60fps 1080p?

        and yes I keep mentioning MGSV because its console performance deserves more praise 😛

  • oVg

    Can anybody beat this image for its Photo Realism? When it said photo realistic graphics on the back of the box I did the usual snigger. This is hands down the most realistic game I have ever seen. The lighting, the rock formation, dust and reflections. The water is the only element that looks bad.

    Also, has anybody even bothered to notice that the night sky is real? North Star in Afghanistan and Southern cross in Angola?

    Yet all people talk about is Quiets boobs.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Because they’re not photo realistic ;P

      • oVg

        🙂

      • oVg

        Red Dead is second

  • Witcher Bob

    Perhaps all the comps going forward can add the following clause/T&C:
    Abandon hope all ye who enter

  • aj_nator

    you know, one day, when I see my name on one of those lists… that’ll be my win

  • Stosta

    I use 3 email addresses in every one of your compos and have NEVER made it onto your list. Also… 🙁

  • RustedFaith

    Noooo Im second

    Damn you Anthony!!!

    Congrats 🙁
