    Okay, I had time to read through all of the great entries. It was tough to decide, but in the end the one that made me laugh the most and was suffiently over the top (and I'm still trying to purge my mind of the visuals) was

    You'll have to ask JC316.
    The reason I didn't post the prize is because this was a "pick whatever you want for gaming" (up to a given $$ limit), so I really don't know. :D
    scaminatrix and stinger608 say thanks.

    First, I want to give a huge thanks to both Kreji and TPU. Thank you so much man! Kreji really made my Christmas this year. Me and my sister have been dying to get a Nintendo 3DS, I had wanted to get her one for Christmas, but I didn't have enough money to do it this year. I also wanted Batman Arkham City and Deus Ex Human Revolution. Lastly, I wanted to spread the love a bit, so I asked that he send a game to my good friend Linkin.

    Again, HUGE thanks to Kreji. Merry Christmas to all and huge respect!!

    Nothing showing up yet with the Steam gift to Linkin, so if nothing by tomorrow I will regift it to him. Their store is being hammered with traffic and it's throwing errors constantly. lol

    Once again, thanks everyone for participating !!
    It was a lot of fun.

    On a side note ... this is the first time someone has asked that their prize (or a portion of it) go to someone else just out of kindness, generosity and friendship.

    For that JC got a copy of [Prototype] to add to his game collection too.

    You're a good egg, JC. Enjoy.

    Sadly, yes it's too la.... WAIT WHAT AM I THINKING?!? IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS YET !!!

    Person who submits the funniest description of what it's like to take an arrow to the knee, gets a gifted copy of Skyrim (no pictures please, just text)
    If you have it already, pass it on !

    Requirements : You must have a Steam account. Contest will close Christmas Eve (when I feel like it), and I will gift it that day/night/whatever so you can play it on Christmas day.
    (You're can't win this one JC316 ;) )

    I love sneaking extra contests into already closed contests. MWAHAHAHA... :D

    Stop with the kudos. I'm no different than any of the people in the Pay it Forward thread who want to help people out. I just do it in contests for some fun.

    congrats to JC!!!! Very well deserved to say the least! :)

    Kreij you just amaze me at all turns with the kindness, help, and generosity you give daily to this most awesome community!

    As for the Skyrim contest, I also have it, however I will enter just to gift it to some one that needs/wants the game and cannot afford it. :)

    I was working in my back yard about 9 months ago when I took an arrow to my knee and fell on my wife. Now we have a son.
