Irrational Games declares the winner of "name in the game"

#1 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1522 posts) -

Congratulations are in order for Mr (Ms?) Payton Lane Easter, as his/her outrageous designation has earned him/her the honor of becoming a denizen of Columbia in the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. Payton Lane Easter will lend that outlandish moniker as the namesake for Payton Lane Easter & Sons automated stallions, most likely the finest purveyor of mechanised mares in Columbia. 

Commiserations are also due for the hundred thousand or so contest losers, myself among them. Anyone else enter? I personally can rest easy knowing that Alistair Cunningham is nowhere near as old-timey as Payton Lane Easter. The best name laid it's claim. But surely with so many entries for the contest, Irrational could have done the decent thing and selected a handful more to be used in game as enemies or put up as graffiti or something? Thoughts?

Gotta agree, that sounds like a good name to have won.  If my name had won, I really wouldn't want my first and last name used because they just don't go together well at all.

I agree, that really fits well.

@melcene: Neither my first nor last names go with one another, or anything else. Seriously, try saying "Hello, I'm Alistair Cunningham" - it takes about 5 fucking minutes.

That poster looks great, also congrats to that particular individual with the weird name.
