Op Ed

Gamasutra - A Theory About Humor In Games.
Consider the laughter that occurs in a friendly game of Scrabble or Spin the Bottle. The chuckles that occur are just as honest as those that come about when listening to a stand-up comic, but the means of creating the insights are different. Game are unique in their ability to set up systematic, repeatable opportunities to create and confront mental models. Specifically in multiplayer games, the rules of the game often deliberately encourage players to create their own time, place and group specific jokes.

Is the grand prize that great? (I own pretty much every game I want to play) Or was everyone trying for the conversions to games and coupons?

The only game I owned in the contest was Binding of Isaac but I like that game, got 13 mom kills in Ended up with a free game from the very first event and 5 lumps of coal from doing dumb stuff like writing reviews.

I used to dislike Steam a lot but you can't beat the deals
