Have you ever won anything from a gaming website?

I won a copy of Lost Odyssey from Gamespot Australia about a year ago.

Oh, I've also won a Wii belt and copy of Quantum of Solace DS from Nintendo Australia, but they weren't nearly as awesome.

Not really a gaming website (like GS, IGN, etc), but I did win a $100 gift card from Atlus from doing a survey.

I also won from Gamespot AU a while ago

I won a copy of Turok for the 360 along with a Turok jacket. Sadly the jacket did not fit and I haven't played Turok yet (this was a year ago I believe)

Still I was pretty pumped to have won, especially when your answer gets read out on the podcast, that's actually how I found out, I heard my log in tag and my answer before I got the email from them

My entry wasn't read out. I was one of five winners of this competition and they basically read out the 5 winner's names, including mine.

I won both Quake 4 and a movie pack from Gamespot. If you go and watch the end of the Quake 4 tournament at Gamespot, you'll totally hear Jeff say my name and home town. The movie pack was from GS:AU and included: Cloverfield, Transformers, NEXT, Shooter and MI:3.

Nope.  And some of my last memories of my dad before he died was him staring at the screen of one of those video poker things.  At least when you go to a casino you're among other people.

I once won some crappy DS game from the Gamespot UK podcast. I think it was called paint by numbers, or something equaly dumb. I never received it. But I didn't really care.

I won a game from gamespot.  I can't remember the name of it though.  It wasn't very good.  I used to get a ton of stuff like free notebooks and pens, demos and even a very nice CD holder from the Playstation Underground.  That wasn't a contest though.

#17 Posted by c_rakestraw (854 posts) -

I haven't technically won anything, but I've gotten a few GameSpot t-shirts and DVDs from the staff. Which was pretty sweet.
