Well done, chaps. Jazzem, you dark horse!

Congrats to Poncho - your Braid review was, for me, the outstanding piece of the whole competition. There were some other superb entries, but that was my favourite out of both categories.

Me neither!

Just got up, so missed all the build-up. :( Congratulationss to Poncho and Jazzem, the Braid review was my favourite of the lot as well.

I was dieing to ask Eighthours where the 'occasional punctuation spazz-out' was though in the are videogames art article, because I have no idea...kinda obviously.

Holy cow, I wasn't expecting my entry to be so well received! A big thanks to everyone who voted for it, as well as AI for running the competition (And making checking the forum during a computing lecture very painful with the whole system breakdown thing :lol:) and the folks who gave me feedback. And of course well done to Poncho and all the other entrants :) There were some cracking pieces entered and I really enjoyed reading them. Here's to next year's GRWC!
