I'm a meteorologist working for the National Science Foundation at Amundsen-Scott Station, South Pole. I've been talking to Drew lately about working down here, and lamented about our exceptionally poor gaming library. I thought that setting up a donation drive for old games you might be wanting to give away to the polies down here would be a good idea.
We do have a pretty impressive setup for gaming here (720p projector, surround sound, lots of couches, Wii, 360, PS3), but have almost no games. In fact, we only have Halo 3, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, and Assassins Creed for the 360 and a four others like Injustice: Gods Among Us for the PS3. As for the Wii, well lets just say I've never seen a more complete collection of bargain bin games in my like (Wii Fit - minus the board, TWO copies of Carnival games, and other bits of greatness in those lines). We could also use a couple of controllers for the systems as well.
I've been in contact with Drew and he has offered to consolidate any games donated and forward them to me. The Giant Bomb address is below. Please send them BEFORE January 2nd! (edit to bring the date forward so we can get the games out in time for the winter no-fly)

I think that this would be a great way for the community to come together and help out some gamers in need. Winter (which is 8 months here from March til November) can get boring, and I would love to see this care package waiting for them before they get here. Its going to take a while for it to get down here, so please send in the games BEFORE January 2nd, so it can be consolidated and mailed out.
Also, please post what you are sending, so we can avoid duplicates. If you can, game of the year editions or editions that have DLC included would be most appreciated. Our internet connection down here is circa early 90's dialup, so downloads do not work (30mb file took me about an hour to download). Heck, I can't even download the Bombcast...
And now, PICTURES (ignore the beard, its a harsh continent)...
