PSXE User Review Contest: The Readers Choose Another Winner

It was close, but another winner of our So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest has been chosen.

The last leg of the contest consisted of a more specific angle: The amateur critic would have to pen a great analysis of a fall title and of course, it would have to fall into PSXE's wheelhouse; i.e., the game would have to be available on a PlayStation platform.

As usual, we let the readers decide the very best submission and although it was once again very close, the winner is-

TGSA for his Borderlands 2 review. Congrats!

Now he just needs to email me at bdutka[at]psxextreme.com with a functioning US mailing address, and I'll give away a free game. He'll have the option of quite a few available titles, including XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, several Vita games, and more. So long as I've got stuff to give away (which is pretty much all the time), we'll run more user review contests; it's a great way for the community to contribute, and it always proves that we've got some very knowledgeable and informed peeps as PSXE regulars.

User reviews usually suck. Ours...not so much. ;)

I ask for a repeat contest of current releases. I'd like to get my hands on an AC3 and do a review on that.
... if I can make the time for it that is.

As we all know already, if he doesn't claim his price, It automatically goes to me.

I also thought that Temjin's was very well done. He made his love and knowledge of the Fighting genre quite obvious, which is one of the things I like the most in reviews.

Congtrats, TGSA!

Hey Ben,

Not that I'd ever be good enough to even think about reviewing a game, but in the case that for some odd reason or another someone doesn't claim their prize over a certain amount of time, would you then give it to the 2nd place finisher, or just null & void that one individual contest?

Just curious....

Yeah, I'd probably give it to whoever finished second.

Quick question, was I not eligible for another prize this time? Every time I checked the polls I was up big, even this last day I was up 31% to 17%. Just curious.

Yes, I think you did a mistake here, Ben. It was the Liberation review that received the most votes. Just look at the vote that is still up.

I'm glad you asked in the comments because I didn't want to explain in the article...it's just REALLY embarrassing.

I wanted to fix something in the poll (just a typo) mid-week and I wrote down all the vote numbers tallied to that point, because the system does something weird when I edit a poll...it usually posts it again and it loses all the progress.

So I did that and re-inputted the up-to-date tallies...only I got yours wrong. I only noticed last night on my little slip of paper that I misread my horrendous jotted notes of numbers. So I ended up giving you 50 more votes than you had. That's VERY much my fault and I feel bad about it, because now there's no knowing if you would've won fair and square...so what I wanted to do was make a "damn I screwed up gesture" by shipping something out to you.

Email me. :)

Congratulations TGSA and good job!

Though, I noticed GorillaB. showed a lions share in the percentages. maybe that was a glitch in the polling or something?

Congratulations TGSA.

I think that was cool of Ben to offer Gorilla Biscuit something for the mistake. Very few people are like that, it reminds me of something only friends do.

Congratulations to TGSA and all the other reviewers, seems like it was pretty close between everyone.

This is the first game review that I've ever written, and while I was kinda disappointed I didn't come a little closer to winning, it didn't really surprise me lol. I know I left out a few things e. g., I didn't talk much about the actual gameplay, or the fighting mechanics, etc.

I'm thinking about writing additional reviews for future contests, so I would love to hear from people why they DIDN'T vote for mine.

Thanks and congrats again to TGSA!
