Corduroy Turtle's Caption Contest - RESULTS!!


I was completely blown away by the response to this contest! I guess when you dangle free games in front of a group of rabid video game lovers, it garners a response. Who knew? In fact, this contest was so fun that I will be using this format for any of my subsequent contests. Basically, THANKS! It worked out better than I could have hoped and all the praise falls to you guys. Leave it to the Destructoid community to produce pure awesomeness!

Let's get down to the winners! I figured what better way to unveil the winners than to caption a screenshot in their honor? Here we go!




Here is the winning submission.

I ended up choosing this one because it caught me by surprise. The obvious choice when captioning that pic would have been to have Cole Phelps yelling something out of anger, not thanking a couple for having him over for dinner. It's ridiculous, yes, but also unexpectedly hilarious. Well done, manasteel88!




Here is the winning submission.

I originally chose this picture because of the dumb look on the main character's face. I figured most captions would focus on the girl being carried away but I didn't expect it to be explained as a transaction for belt straps! It was such a silly concept that it ultimately won me over. Nice job, Handy!


I hope there aren't any hard feelings out there. There were a ton of fantastic submissions and it was hard as hell picking only one winner in each category. I even used an impartial third party (that will go unnamed) to help me narrow down the finalist. It was tough!

I have runner ups chosen on the off chance that the winners don't want their winnings. Thanks again to every single person that took part in this! You all warm my dark, calloused heart. I hope you'll all take part in the next one!

Winners! Send me a PM with your address, if you would be so kind. Congratulations!
