Subject: prize dept
I was told to contact the prize department because of an attachment
that told me
to contact you saying that i was the 10,000,000 visitor to site. Did
I win a
prize? Please let me know if i did or didn't. Thanks
Hi Poor, Lost Soul,
Yes, you DID win a prize
- GR's Most Confused Reader
Award! It was a close call between you and the guy who thought that
Nigerian spam was real.
Be proud! It took a lot of
guts to become our most confused reader, not to mention a great deal
of confusion. But in honor of you thinking that that a pop-up
window meant you had actually won a prize from Game Revolution,
we're happy to award you, uh, with a prize, sorta. Wait, now we're

Ummm, I found it kinda strange that you dont have a Doom (the greatest
game of all time) or Doom 2 review??? Whats this?? Please try to get
it on here, its made by ID (which you probably already know) and its
a FPS (duh).
P.S. Great Site!!!
Um, we find it strange that
you find it strange that we don't have a review up for a game that came
out in 1993, or its sequel, which came out in 1994, since we've never
reviewed any games that came out before we did.
And let's be frank - Doom
is not the greatest game of all time. The greatest game of all
time is Croc
2. He's sooooo cute! You laugh? Well, I guess you're not getting
a kickback from Gummi Savers, are you?

Would some one please tell Mr. Hideo Kojima to keep Solid Snake's trademark
mullet? I grew up with the old Metal Gear titles for the Dogged
NES platform. On the cover of both games Snake is sporting the famed
Battle Mullet. This seldom used hairstyle fits Snake's profile to
the letter. It is as much a part of Solid Snake as tactical espionage
action is of Metal Gear Solid. When I heard rumors they may be phasing
out Snake's "do", I was horrified. How would I recognize our
famed hero?! So in closing I throw myself at the mercy of Mr. Kojima
when I say, "KEEP SOLID SNAKE'S MULLET, PLEASE!!"

Subject: Video Game Publishers
I was browsing your review section on your web site,
and I began to wonder something. What video game
publishing company do you at GR think is the worst,
EVER. Personally, I think 3DO, although I used to
enjoy their Army Men games, the complete idiot I was.
However, now that I'm only a partial dumbass, I
realize that those games...well, sucked--as do most of
3DO's games. What company do you guys think is the
suckiest? And, which one do you guys think is the
best, I think Electronic Arts kicks some of the
majorest ass in the biz. And yah, I know majorest
isn't a word. Thanks guys, tell me what you think!
P.S. Man, it must have sucked to live in Salem,
Massachusetts in 1692, am I right? I mean with all
those witches roamin' around and all.
This is a tough question
for us to answer. Since we have to work with all these companies, we
don't really want to go on record saying that this one or that one is
the worst... but we will anyway, since it's all right with us if Southpeak
sends us another game, ever.
Boy, have they put out some
'special' games. Remember Bedrock
Dukes Of Hazzard? Fighter
Destiny 2? No, you probably don't, because they all sucked.
company put out a few other games, including the memorable N64 smash hits
Big Mountain 2000 and Mia Hamm Soccer.
Makes 3DO look like Blizzard.

Subject: Let The Readers Write The Reviews (sometimes)
Hey, have you ever thought about letting the readers type some reviews.
When I say this I mean each month you would hold a contest and the reader
with the best review could get their review posted on the site. Of course
the monthly contest would be based on one game, which everybody would
have to write a different review for. Think about.
Yes, we have thought about
this...for about 5 seconds while drunk. Then, we realized we would have
to read all these reviews each month, which we already do for the reviews
that we publish. Plus, the majority of our readers routinely demonstrate
the kind of writing skills that could only be the result of severe head
trauma. Reading through a million un-spellchecked reviews seems about
as fun as chewing off your own arm.
We might be stupid, but we're
not that stupid.
