Question of the Week: Guilty Pleasure

3 min read


Howdy folks and welcome back to Question of the Week. Last weeks question had our readers telling us their stories of ultimate and absolute pwnage and although some of the stories involved some awesome gaming skills, a lot of you guys seem to have been blessed with some serious luck.

I have posted the winner’s name up after the jump below.

So now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to the fun stuff.

This Weeks Question: Did you ever play (and really enjoy) a game in secret because your friends would think you were lame?

So, for this week’s question I really want you guys to spill the beans. We have all played a game at one point or another that was considered so lame that your friends would no longer be able to see you as the hardcore “l33t pWnZor” that you are. Problem is, you really loved it and probably put more hours into it than you ever would have originally anticipated.

Thanks to the latest offerings from Nintendo, titles like these are a dime a dozen. Late night Wii Fit Hula Hoop sessions? We want to hear all about it. Tell us your tale and you could win yourself a noddy badge (not really). Sorry to say, but we are working on getting a permanent sponsor for this spot right now, hopefully we will be back to giving real prizes away soon enough.

Keep supporting the Question of the Week with your stories and even get your friends to enter as well. With enough supports from our readers, we should be able to organise a sponsor for the weekly prizes. This section is completely designed to benefit our readers but it is only our readers that can help us make this happen. To quote Jerry Mcguire: “Help me help you”.

Just a quick note before I announce the winner, the judging for the Question of the Week is going to be done a little differently. To keep things fair, all accepted entries will now be put into a randomiser and the winner will then be chosen electronically using, as was done with the winner of last weeks prize.

Congratulations to Milesh Bhana for winning a copy of TNA iMPACT! for the Playstation 3. Your gaming skills and a stroke of randomised luck have earned you a new “beat-down simulator”. Please send your details to [email protected] so that we can organise to have your prize sent to you.

[please note that we can only accept entries from our readers that live in the SADC]
