I bought a 4 pack of Payday 2 a while ago - only got rid of 3 copies (including mine) and don't want to put it on my second account - so it is up for grabs! I planned to give it away but kept forgetting and I figured now is a perfect time for a short contest. Anybody can enter. I also have some Origin keys and maybe some Steam keys to random games I'll give to the winner.

Ends tomorrow sometime - I'll say 5pm EST just because and pick a winner tomorrow night.

Enter by telling us the best Christmas gift you've ever received.

I'll enter into this contest.

Best Christmas gift I ever received? My "current" PC. I put that in quotes as it has been upgraded on a part by part basis to the point that it is 100% different now, aside from reusing a case fan and an HDD as a dedicated backup drive.

Merry Christmas and have a great new year Guitarrassdeamor.

Great competition.

The best gift I received was an Amiga 600. I loved that computer and couldn't begin to list the amount of great gaming moments I had on that thing growing up. Even to this day I still use Amiga emulators to relive my youth and try to complete all the games I never got around to finishing once girls came along LOL.

Merry Christmas everyone :)

The best Christmas gift is being able to be with my nan, cousins, mom, dad, brother aunts and uncles on Christmas Eve when we all get together for a family party where we all eat food and all kinds of bad stuff for out bodies. I always enjoyed this tradition but didn't realize how much until I had to work on Christmas Eve in another city by alone by myself. I am grateful to have had been home to be with them this year and hope to be able to do this every year with them because the reason for the season is family, joy and happiness.

Other than that I guess that Gran Turismo 2 for the ps1 and a JVC mini system was my biggest hype GIFTS when I was young that I remember.

Thanks very much for the give away!! :D

I want to enter.

We don't celebrate Christmashere that much but my birthday falls pretty close to Christmas, so I recieve gifts on that day. The best gift I received was Kawasaki Ninja 250r from my parents for scoring good marks in my school, it was such a wow moment that I was expression less for the whole day, and spoke only the next day about how amazing the bike is and thanking my parents.
This was the best gift I ever recieved.

Merry Christmas and happy new year to all ^_^

The best for me is just spending time with friends and family, but if you had to push me for an actual present, I'd say my biggest surprise gift was an Amiga 1200 many many moons ago!

A 1" long kidney stone removal surgery last year on 12/12/12. The irony is it hit all the holidays:
1) Halloween it was found via x-ray.
2) Thanksgiving I went to Mayo for consultation on removing it. It was asymptomatic at this point but the trip to Mayo dislodged it and they did an emergency stent placement when I was there so I could make it home.
3) Christmas was the surgery to remove it.
4) New Years there was a follow up appointment to make sure it healed well.

This just sounds nuts! Glad you're ok, but your doctor must hate the holidays and look for any excuse to avoid them :laugh: j/k, just glad you're all good now ;)

A 4 or 5 ft. long aircraft carrier. You could actually land a plane with a series of pulleys and string. I was like 6 or 7. Best present ever. Even beat out a real horse.

i was given a box of computer parts from the tip this year for christmas.

contained the i7 mobo i'm using now and enough parts for 3 complete AM3 systems (two of which i just finished building up an hour ago), as well as a legit copy of windows 8 and two copies of windows 7.

also had four working laptops only missing hard drives.

would like payday simply because everyone keeps telling me to buy it but i have no idea if ill like it or not.

I see the giveaway is gone but my best xmas gift was a Mattel toy from heman the new adventrues (i know a crap cartoon but i loved the toys)
They were the ones from below this set


You guys might think its lame but back before 90's in Poland this kind of toy was like a fortune to buy and have.
It was not so long after communism so the availability of stuff was also comically low - there was a single store in a 300k+ city with just a few foreign toys.
I remember asking my mom so many times to get me those new leet mattel toys. Today I think that kids actually loose a leet part with all the wanting and waiting so badly, stuff is so easy to get this suspense is completely gone.
