Video Game Review Competition I



Hey there everyone, and welcome to the official Video Game Review Competition, which will be monthly! Now, on this competition, you'll post a review about any video game of your choice, right here on the LP forum (not in this thread). When you've finished your review and post it in those sub-forum, provide a link of your submission here, and that will be your entry! You can only enter with one review per entry, so, make them count! At the end of the entry phase your review will be voted & judged by others, and of course, at the end of the judging phase, there will be prizes for the winner, and a prize for the runner up! All participants will also get emblems for joining! So, good luck to all!


General Rules for this Competition:

  • You may post in this thread if you're entering the competition, but, make sure to make your review in time! The Entry phase will last for 2 weeks, from June 15th - June 29th, so get your submissions in during that time! Judging phase will last for a couple of days after that!
  • Refer to the general rules of PC, the LP/Guides/Reviews sub-forum. Do not post generally negative reviews with the intention of flamebaiting another reviewer and their opinion. Explain your reasoning thoroughly!
  • Your review must be of decent length, both being descriptive and informative to your reader of what you liked or didn't like from a game. Extremely poor reviews will not fly and your thread will be locked! Reviews like this are NOT allowed: "this gaem suckd!11 stupid!11 0/10!111"
  • Reviews are generally someone's OPINION. If you do not like that person's opinion of a game, you may not flame or spam their thread! This will result in an infraction. You are entitled to your opinion, but do so by making a thread!
  • There is no set rating system, so feel free to use stars, 1-10, or another method easy to understand.
  • In this competition, reviews can be posted by anyone and the same game may be reviewed by as many people as want to post a review. You may reply to a review if you disagree, agree or just want to ask them something relevant to their review, but once again, leave your flamebaiting out of the area!
  • But once again, do not post your entry in this thread; post it as a new thread in this sub forum.
  • Any other questions? Feel free to ask in this thread!


The Prizes:


1st Place: A $20 gaming card towards any PC game, or gaming console (ie Nintendo Wii U, PSN) + A emblem for 1st!
Runner Up: A Runner Up Emblem!
All participants gets a participating emblem!

Aaaand done.

I do wish I had decided on this game earlier so it wouldn't have been so down-to-the-wire. But this game means a lot to me and I pulled an all-nighter to get it here. I'll keep tweaking until time's up.

Ah, first of all, sorry about the wait guys, this took a lot longer than it should. @_@ Fortunately, your patience is awarded! Got the results up right no. :]

So, just in case you're curious, the reviews were judged into key 'categories', in which they were judged for creativity, which you know, maybe you could of used a lot of transitions, or personification, for example, but there were also many factors to this. There was also stuff like your overall knowledge about the game, where you know, you didn't post a review for the sake of just posting it - you seemed to have a lot of knowledge behind the game, your writing style, how your review was represented, and things like that.

Okay! Now that's out of the way, judging has definitely indeed been done, so, take a look:

Runner up:



Nakasu's review of Zenoblade Chronicles! - judges really enjoyed your presentation, and you seemed to have a lot of back knowledge and own personal knowledge about the game. That's good!


And now for the official winner!



machomuu's Inazuma Eleven GO Strikers 2013 review! - because oh gosh, that was quite the read, but, clearly you'v done a great effort on it, and it definitely shows! You're quite detailed towards a lot of aspects, and your overall knowledge showed! And it was quite easy on the eyes too. <3 Congrats! PM me about what type of gaming card you want!


As for the rest of you, thanks for participating! I admit, that was a really close contest; everyone did great jobs on their reviews, and heck I had to stand there for quite sometime to pick an overall runner up and winner. It's great to see some talent in this! Hopefully we'll get another contest for this soon!

Anyways, thank you again! Prizes are on there way, and if you have any questions, other comments, or concerns, you can direct them here!
