Its been a year since I tried a giveaway on the blog. The blog has seen growth in its views and popularity even the design of the blog has changed. Time to up the ante with a better giveaway. Someone is going to win. Why not give it a shot? Read on to see what I have.
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of 1001 Video Games To Play Before You Die. This is a very thick book that belongs among any good game collection. You would be hard pressed to think of a good game that isn’t listed between the covers. A multitude of writers from magazines and blogs contribute page or half page recaps of the famous games. It is edited by Tony Mott of Edge Magazine. A great gift for yourself or anyone with even a modest interest in video games. Could be a great nostalgic trip or even seen as an educational tool. Basically, it mentions every game that has defined the genre of video games to this day.
Thats my pitch and I sticking with it. Like I said, I have the book and it’s fun to look at every now and again. I’ve even watched a few blogs dedicated to the pursuit of playing all 1001 games. That would take some doing, I would think, even if you counted the ones you’ve already played. Think your up for the challenge? Well, you’ll need the book!
I’ve worked it out with the publisher and will send a copy of 1001 Video Games To Play Before You Die to the winner of the “favorite comment”! Tell me what games you hope are in the book, your favorite old game or just be really, really funny. Think of something better? Leave multiple comments. I’ll let the commenting go all month before Zoidberger and I decide on a winner. If you win, I’ll email you to obtain your mailing address so I can send you the book. Restricted to the US but feel free to comment anyway.
