Contest: Win a three-day pass to PAX East! (Update)


2:20 PM on 03.07.2011



[Update: A winner has been chosen! Congratulations to Michael Hayes, as chosen by Sean and Wicked Smart Kids! You can see his winning response below. Michael, we'll be contacting you with information on how to pick up/receive your passes, so please check your Destructoid private messages!]

What do you want to be when you grow up? Sean Baptiste made a list -- comedian, rapper, spy -- and he's trying it out for the world to see in a documentary series When I Grow Up. The first episode will premiere at a PAX East panel on March 13 at 12:00 PM.

Not going? Need passes? Sean Baptiste and production company Wicked Smart Kids wants to help out by offering up a three-day pass to a lucky Destructoid reader. To win, simply use the comments section of this story to tell us what you want to be (or wanted to be) when you grow up. Be as creative or honest as you want; have fun or reveal your secret dream job.

Sean and Wicked Smart Kids will choose their favorite response from the bunch, and on Monday, March 7, we will reveal the winner. Reminder: this is one set of three-day passes only; you'll have to find your own way to Boston, home of PAX East, to pick up your passes.

To get things started and to have a little fun, we have an exclusive video of Sean putting his tounge firmly in his cheek and trying to be a videogame reviewer. Enjoy!

Michael's winning entry: 

I always wanted to be a video game designer. At first, I thought I wanted to be a video game programmer, but back in the 80's those were one and the same. I've been working my butt off to make games today, but it's getting more and more difficult. I managed to make it into Digipen, the new video game college, but my parents wanted me to go to their alma mater, and wouldn't pay for 'video game school'. So I wen the safe route, and I've been regretting it ever since. I'll probably spend the next ten years reversing that blunder. I have to work full time to support myself and do video games at night. Getting a free pass to pax would be invaluable to me, I'd be able to network and promote my indie games to the people who would care the most: gamers!
