I just bought the Potato Sack via Steam, but I already own copies of Amnesia, Super Meat Boy and The Ball, so I'm going to be giving these away.  I reviewed both Amnesia and The Ball on this site, but the long and the short of it is that Amnesia is terrific and The Ball is more or less mediocre.  Super Meat Boy has gotten a lot of well-deserved love here already, so you're probably pretty aware of it by now.


Anyway, if you want any of these games, respond to this thread and tell me which one you want.  If you want to try to sway my decision with an argument, story or picture, feel free to do that as well.  I'll be checking back later (probably tomorrow), and I'll let the winners know then.

The Ball plz :D

Update: I made a thing ^__^

Amnesia! I played the demo and it scared the crap out of me. That water monster is no joke! Anyway, I'd love to play the full game if you'd be so kind to allow it.  :)

I've been wanting to try Super Meat Boy!

#5 Edited by MattyFTM (14363 posts) -

I wouldn't mind The Ball. As for my argument - if you give it to me, I won't ban you!!! That's a pretty good argument, right?

(I am of course joking, I won't ban you if you give it to someone else.

Or will I???

No, no I won't)

I would really like a copy of Amnesia.

I've recently decided to conquor my fear of horror games, and all I need is Amnesia to fulfill this agenda!.

#7 Posted by TheRandomKo (240 posts) -

I looooove them balls! (Meaning i would love to win The Ball)

#8 Edited by Venatio (4491 posts) -

I would love it if you gave me Super Meat Boy because I've been wanting to buy it for a long time but even with all the discounts I still can't afford it
And it looks really awesome and I love a good 2D sidescroller, especiall one with a challenge

Steam ID is Venatio_S, thanks in advance if I get it!


Also honestly, I've been in 7 give away thread and haven't gotten a single game :(

I would love to play Amnesia. I have amnesia right now. The only way I can keep all of my life's recent events straight is by posting all of my memories on Giant Bomb. I could have done the whole tattoo thing, but that is so expensive and painful.

#10 Posted by Sikila (70 posts) -

I´d love Super Meat Boy since I can´t buy things on steam and I dont own an xbox anymore(RROD FTL I guess).

#11 Posted by Empirepaintball (1393 posts) -

SUPER MEAT BOY!

I've been dying to try it after watching the Quick Look. I cant wait to see why Brad was basically swearing through the whole video.

#12 Posted by TwoLines (2793 posts) -

Super Meat Boy would be awesome!


As for a story.. uhh.. I don't have one.

But, I asked you some time ago about the Master of Magic game, and if it's worth buying/playing.
I remember you had a blog about it once, and I asked you there. After your advice, I bought it and played it, and it was worth the 6 bucks (on GOG).
It's a combination of Civ, HoMM and Master of Orion, it's pretty damn addictive. So, thanks for the advice back then!
#13 Edited by ShaggE (6399 posts) -

I could tuck into some The Ball. My argument is that if I win, MattyFTM won't, and it'd be a giant blow against the establishment. Fight the power! 

#14 Posted by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

I will take the ball, because like a certain Persona 4 character I LOOOOVEEE balls. Plus it's the only game on that list I don't already have.

#15 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

Amnesia. It is a game I have been wanting to try but have not had the extra money to get yet. 

#16 Posted by bslayer (222 posts) -

super meat boy because I would love to get mad at a game.

#17 Posted by BlazeHedgehog (1089 posts) -

I have discovered a strange love for horror games within myself, and I've been eyeing Amnesia for quite a while now. I have the first Penumbra game, and that's great, but I want more. I hear Amnesia is far and away a refinement of a lot of what they were trying to do in Penumbra, and I'd love to see what that means.

#19 Posted by falco_eagle (220 posts) -

I'll take The Ball.

#20 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Believe it or not, I forgot my copy of Amnesia: the Dark Descent on the bus, a couple of months ago...... :'(
So yeah, I'd very much like to have my very own 2010 GOTY back in my gaming collection, if you'd be so kind!

And thanks for doing this anyway, even if I'm not one of the chosen. It's mighty kind of you ^^

I'd like Amnesia, please. I deserve it because I played poker with Jonathan Frakes... and survived.
I'm also pretty sexy...

#22 Posted by streetninja (152 posts) -

I would like Super Meat Buy if I was somehow picked. As far as enticing you to give me the game...uh...I gave someone on the forums a Cerberus Network Code about two days ago.

#23 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Super Meat Boy. Why? Because I am the King, and you must do as I command. Also, pretty sure it'd make  for a cool blog, so at least there's potentially something in it for you...kinda.

#24 Posted by Valestis (211 posts) -

I would like Amnesia, but I'm too lazy to do anything cool. Yeah.

#25 Posted by dcgc (878 posts) -

"Muh zombie balls." There. (The Ball)

#26 Posted by Rattle618 (1463 posts) -

I'd love to get Super Meat Boy, it would be the first game I ever get on steam too!

#27 Posted by picklecannon (265 posts) -

I wouldn't mind winning the ball (who would?) as i already own the other two but I'm to lazy to write a story because i have an exam and a lab due tomorrow, so GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE!

#28 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

Hey, I don't own any of these. Um Um, I'll go with Amnesia. 

#29 Posted by Deusx (1903 posts) -

Dude I would love to have SuperMeat boy or Amnesia!! Wichever you want... http://steamcommunity.com/id/weirdviking    


Here is why you should do it: I am having a rough time. I got a job but it is the worst thing in the world. See, Im a graphic designer but I spetialize in illustration and Ive always wanted to be a part of a video game development team, it is what I was born to do. I think I could be a concept art guy. So in this job I got, I am doing advertisement for bed companies, funeral services, and condoms... so yeah, its not very fun. Also the payment is really low and in my country that is something. I live in Guatemala, if you look in the internets, you will find that this is a very dangerous place to live in... I could be dead by tomorrow. So that is why you should give this game to me: Im broke because the only money I get is for food, I am currently under the stress of my countrys violence, I am still paying $20K from college and I NEED SOMETHING TO KEEP MY MIND OF THE PROBLEMS AROUND ME!! The only thing that keeps me going is this website and my girlfriend who loves for me to play videogames with her. 

Also Im a pretty cool guy, if you want a friend on steam you got it bro and if you want my graphic design services I would be very glad to give you a hand ;D Thanks!!!!

Amnesia. Would not mind to be scared again

#31 Posted by c_rakestraw (843 posts) -

Super Meat Boy, please. Can't really come up with any compelling story why I should get it, though, so, uh... yeah. I'll get back to you on that (maybe).

#32 Posted by Gamer_152 (14065 posts) -

I'd love a copy of either, although preferably The Ball. It would cheer me up from finding out my door key was cut wrong and me getting locked out of my family's house today. My Steam name is Gamer_152.

Seriously though, whoever you give these away too it's always nice to see a generous user on the site.

#33 Posted by Pickingwings (182 posts) -

Wouldn't mind trying out The Ball. The concept seems cool enough for me to at least try it.

#34 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Would you kindly gift me Amnesia.

Here's a picture of Dave Snider in a bathtub with girls.


#35 Posted by Djstyles92 (952 posts) -

Super Meat Boy cause I hate myself

#36 Edited by evildeadron (830 posts) -

super meat boy, i heard that it was a great game.

i'll tell you a story of my weekend. last night i went to my friend's neighbor's house because my friend is taking care of their dogs. one of the dogs is pretty much dead lol :(. the dog is blind in one eye, it's deaf, it shakes from being so old. my other friend comes over (my friend's brother) he invites some other people over. now i kind of think that he is a pedo because i found out one of the girls that he invited over is 15 and his 22. it's kind of weird to hear that. he was into to her, pretty weird when i found out that she was 15. that is my pedo story of the day.

#38 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -
@Claude: OMG. How can I compete with that. Snider is a beast.
#39 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I would love to have Super Meat Boy, I won't try to sway you with some BS story, I'm just too cheap to drop $15 bucks on it.

Web Designer and a Playa. Dave is the man! I'm sure he was just trying to fix their bathtub.

I would love a copy of SMB.



Here is some tiny pixel art of them I made.
#42 Posted by Rawrnosaurous (768 posts) -

I would like a copy of Super Meat Boy I have yet to try it out but if Brad's obsession is anything to go by it's pretty good.

#43 Posted by 1337W422102 (1009 posts) -

If there's still time to sign up for the giveaway, I'd like to try my luck for Amnesia!

#44 Posted by Drakhir (410 posts) -

Amnesia, pretty please?
I can barely play horror games and the likes.

#45 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

I edit the wiki give me all your games.

#46 Posted by Zecks23 (150 posts) -

Amnesia please! 

#47 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

I'll go for Amnesia. But why should you go for me?

I loved you in The Social Network, that's why.

#48 Edited by Aronman789 (2676 posts) -

I would like The Ball.
Why? I saw a dude playing it before and I thought it looked awesome. Also I really enjoy skinless/zombie gorilla things.

And I made this: 

#49 Posted by mzuckerm (351 posts) -

The giveaway is over.  Winners: MattyFTM (The Ball), cookiesforbreakfast (Super Meat Boy), Wrighteous86 (Amnesia).  Lots of good submissions from folks, including Claude's photo, Daveyo520's pic, and iam3green's creepy story.  I wish I had more copies to give out.  But if Steam keeps putting out great packs, I'm sure I'll get some more extra copies.  If so, I'll try to spread the love around.
