Two people now have all 20 correct.

One more day to go! Come on guys.

I've been receiving a lot of PM's from people asking for hints, or for me to tell them if answers are wrong. It's obvious I can't help anyone out... it's not fair to anyone.

Yeah, I guess they do deserve it! Good job guys on knowing all 20. Can you tell us later where you know all those games, if you played all of them, or had good friends who know much of them?

BTW, in my opinion this is fair right now that the person who knows the most wins, but it would be even more fair, if the people who have more than 15 correct would be able to enter too, and then still get a chance to win. Like maybe a random winner pick, and so since the guys who found all 20 games would have the highest chance of winning, but the people who still found a lot would still have a little chance of winning.

This is just a though, what do you guys think?

Edit: Wow, now I know I will not have a chance anymore. I can't find 1, and 13. I think I have 1, but not sure if it is right.

1 and 13 are the real doozies. As for people who guessed more than 15, we can't do that. The rules have already been written... Since there are multiple people (and I expect a few more prior to the contest ending) who have all 20, they will be thrown into the proverbial hat and one name pulled out.

I would be curious to know how people knew all these as well. Even myself, I didn't know like 8 of them (I didn't choose all these titles). You have to be a hardcore gamer to know all of them.

well alright, that's ok, I guess I won't have a chance anymore. I will keep looking though, and I hope I will find them.

Odds of 50% is damn good but I would hate to be the user who didn't win since they would be the only loser

As the contest is about to end, I just want to wish everyone GOOD LUCK!!!

I know I'm not among the lucky ones, as I've figured out only 3 of the pictures...

Rob, Will you send a PM to the user that submits their answer and gets all 20 games correct, so that they aren't in suspense about it and can stop searching?

I can't tell people if they have them all right because that could lead to problems. So far, the total for those who guessed 100% correctly is still at 2. So if you submitted today or late last night, you had one or more incorrect.

Of course. I feel bad that two people guessed correctly... I expected a lot more.

Contest is now over. I will prepare the list of games now and edit them into the first post shortly. I will be going through all the entries again to make sure there are indeed only two people and the winner will be randomly selected tomorrow (Thursday) by a staff member.
