    Mafia 2 or CIV 5 for free, Check out the Golden joystick awards over at CVG.
    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/joystick?p=cvgnav

    Get your votes in now for a free game while the offer is still running.

    This offer is from green man gaming and the email used when filling out the form must be the same as the one you use for green man gaming.

    Got my free mafia 2 game and its installing now. :toast:

    Once you have voted you will recieve an email that reads like this.
    (Thank you for voting in the Golden Joysticks 2013. Please confirm your email address below to receive your free game (in association with 2K Games).

    This first email is confusing because if you click the link right away it will say you have not voted even though you have.
    You must wait upto 24 hours for the link in the email to work right.

    Once working you will recieve a second email with your code.

    I tried it.

    It says "Looks like you haven’t voted yet." but I already voted. o_O

    It still asks me to vote and tells me to go here. http://www.computerandvideogames.com/joystick/

    When I go to the link above, it says "Thank you for voting"

    edit: guess i have to wait up to 24 hours

    Yes you have to wait and it did the exact same thing to me and a few friends.
    The link worked for me around 10 to 12 hours later then another email was sent with my mafia 2 steam code.

    @brandonwh64 It's normal for it to do that please wait upto 24 hours before the link in the email works right.

    @FordGT90Concept yes the site can be very slow, They took the voting system down lastnight due to heavey load, I thought i would never get my game lol.

    I finally made it through and it only took about an hour. :laugh: I think I voted in 10 of the categories.

    I haven't got my key either but it says to wait 24 hours so I will.

    I got my code after checking the email again about 10/12 hours later, The 24 hour thing seems to be a rough estimate.

    3 of my friends also got there code after about 10 hours.

    I just clicked the link now (5.5 hours), it worked, and I'm downloading Mafia II as we speak. Besides trying one's patience, this deal can't be beat! :D

    The voting/deal appears to be still active.... however, as previously stated, the site appears to be horrendously slow :roll:


    Mafia 2 is my choice of free game in this promotion. I expect a lot of others will also pick this option, too, as the game can be a tonne of fun.

    Kinda brings back memories of Mafia way back when...... :laugh::eek:

    I already have Civ 5 from a Steam sale and almost all of the DLCs. Mafia 2 has never had an awesome sale yet AFAIK.

    I've been a bit disappointed with every game since Civ2 so frankly they owe me one.

    It seems there was a problem.
    Can you please try to register your details again, as we encountered a glitch in the matrix.

    Over and over..

    Got around it by using an already made account I had.
