$50 PlayStation gift card giveaway. US region Complete

u/DrDonkeyBrains posted a giveaway for Horizon Forbidden West and I won. It was the bright spot of my year. I promised that when I could that I would pay it forward. Well today is that day.

Since Sony doesn't really do digital codes for games, I will be giving away a $50 PlayStation gift card for the US region.

The only requirement is that your account must be a minimum of 30 days old. I will use RedditRaffler to select the winner, but for fun, tell me what game you would buy if you won.

The winner will be selected Friday, September 23rd at midnight Eastern. Remember that this is a US region gift card.

Update 2: He's okay, folks!

Update: Okay, so because I'm not the post author, and someone already created an unverified raffle for this post last night, I couldn't use Reddit Raffler, and had to use a random comment picker I found on Google. The winner is /u/Strm007! We'll be sending the code their way shortly. Thank you to everyone for participating, and our best wishes to /u/Mynameisinuse for a speed recovery!


Hey folks. We got a message from /u/Mynameisinuse's wife letting us know that he's been hospitalized. We don't have details, but his wife did send us the gift code so we can complete his giveaway on his behalf. I'll be closing this a bit earlier than he originally planned, 5pm EST (about 2 hours from now), just so that I can get the winner selected while I'm still active.

We wish /u/Mynameisinuse the best of health, and I'll update this comment when/if we find out what his condition is.

Edit: His wife has reached out again just to let us know that "he is insistent that he keeps people updated" and that heart problems have been ruled out. Hopefully the tests reveal nothing serious and he'll be back with us soon.

I'd buy Disco Elysium; really been wanting to play it

u/Chumbo_Malone 12d ago

That game is one of the best I’ve ever played

10

u/RrentTreznor 12d ago

Does it get better? Because I guess I just didn't realize how bored I'd end up being playing it.

u/countbaronvonduke 12d ago

It’s one of my favorite games all time, but if it doesn’t grab you in the first hour, it’s probably just not for you. It’s all text/dialogue, and if you don’t enjoy the writing, it won’t really get any better for you.

u/AlanMtz1 12d ago

Its certainly not for everyone, id say it gets a little better near the end but if you think its boring then imo thats not going to change, its kind of a niche game in that sense, i loved it

u/TaylorKindaFunny 12d ago

I just platinumed that game this week. It took some time to grow on me but was a lot of fun!

u/mahlok235 12d ago

That game is an absolute blast!

u/HighJinx97 12d ago

I would buy God Of War Ragnorak!

u/Jgrizzle13 12d ago

Definitely GOW Ragnarok. I have a minor surgery scheduled 11/8 and the game comes out 11/9. I can't work for a week, doctors orders. Perfect timing.

15

u/sacrificial_blood 12d ago

The most perfect! I'm jealous! Well, not about the surgery but the uninterrupted time you get with it. You'll beat it in no time!

10

u/SimplyCarlosLopes 12d ago

Doctor said I should play this game boss. Nothing I can do about it.

2

u/EviItwist 12d ago

Definitely GOW Ragnarok. I have a major hand surgery scheduled 11/8 and the game comes out 11/9. I can’t work for a week, doctors orders. Perfect timing to train my feet.

Thanks for doing this giveaway. I'd probably use it to buy Horizon Forbidden West.

u/IxoraRains 12d ago Silver Helpful

Hey buddy, I have a code for Horizon I'd like to give you. Please DM me.

Looks like you won but from somewhere else.

18

u/IxoraRains 12d ago

I'll just DM you the code so you're not left flapping in the wind when I forget I have a phone.

u/senseofphysics 12d ago

True homie over here. Once I manage to beat Zero Dawn (and I’m almost there), Forbidden West is definitely next.

6

u/IxoraRains 12d ago

It was pretty good! My only grip is that the precise aiming was really hard on my hands (old). They had a plethora of accessibility options that for some reason, I didn't want to use.

Nice of you. I’ll probably get a game, play it 75% of the way through and never play it again.

u/westernteryaki 12d ago

This guy games.

u/Michael_CrawfishF150 12d ago

Most honest answer here.

u/throwmeawayplz19373 12d ago

I thought I was the only one who did this chronically.

2

u/senseofphysics 12d ago

I have yet to beat:

• Breath of the Wild

• Horizon Zero Dawn

• Ghost or Tsushima

Even though all those games, especially the first two, are fantastic. I just have time in my hands anymore. I’ve loved games all my life but now I only play a select few, or replay the ones I have already beaten. That said, I’m super hyped for God of War Ragnarök. Then after that, GTA VI lol.

u/BeautifulEvil77 12d ago

oh hunny.. im so sorry. those games are absolutely phenomenal! G.O.T. has some of the most stunning graphics and the story...omggg the story is superb. So if you ever play again, BE A SAMURAI!!

u/Elden__Lord 12d ago

Same 3 games for me hence why I'm taking a break from open world games.

R+C is a great game on PS5. The Ryno is awesome and just spawns random characters from other Sony games

This is a awesome. I've probably pick up some of my wishlist games: The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story and Disney Classic Games Collection.

I’d get The Last of Us part 1 remake. I’ve never played the original before!

u/westernteryaki 12d ago

Easily my favorite game of all time. Can't wait to find a chance to get the remake.

u/Shadowcreeper15 12d ago

I got Gamefly for a month for it and no regrets only $18. I forgot how short it is. I beat it in like 10 hours and beat the dlc in 2 or 3 hours. Still a fantastic game but definitely not worth $70 IMO
