I know I resized my pictures on imgur, but for whatever reason some of them resized and some of them didn't. Ugh. I'm looking through the options now and I can't find the "resize" option >_<

I really wish a requirement was to post the name of the game the screenshot it from. There were some really, really interesting screens that make me want to play those games, but I have no idea what they are!

Link the post and specify which image, and somebody here will probably help you find it. Note that you can obtain a specific post URL within a thread by clicking on the "subject" line in the post. The URL line in your browser will update with it.

I noticed a lot of Just Cause images here. Is it really fun? Enjoyable? Long Lasting? Breath Freshening?

I loved Mercenaries 1, but passed on JC1 for Merc 2 (which was ok, but wasnt worth it long run). Just Cause 2 also seems to have been revamped, and some of the web advertisments made me laugh.

But beyond that, I never thought of picking it up. Not trying to derail the thread here, but quick thoughts on the game? Maybe I'll end up winning a copy! :D

Long lasting? It practically never ends. You'll get bored before you finish, but only cause it takes so long to complete.

I'd like to try both games. When Black ops came out, I burnt myself out on it. I've now almost burnt out on BC2. I need something else to play until BF3 comes out, which will happen...........

JC2 also gets progressively insanely difficult before you can finish it as waves upon waves of enemies that never die keep on arriving. Try fighting 4 choppers! There's nowhere to run. I think I had 87% complete before I got bored, the island is HUGE.

I am a completionist, and was all about to get 100% on everything in JC2, and then I just gave up. The game is massive; you don't need it all to "finish" the game but I just got discouraged.

It's fun for a while, but IMO the gameplay is a little too one dimensional and yeah the infinite choppers that can happen is annoying; you basically always die.

Hmmm...good to hear about JC2. I'm debating about whether or not I want fire that up.

EDIT: Good luck to everyone! Great shots!

I think the most amusing picture was pretty weak. And that's being unbiased. I didn't even crack a smile looking at it.

Well at least nobody lost to a cut-scene. That would have really bugged me.

True that, I've seen similar thong shots like that before on many other gaming sites. http://www.google.com/search?q=left+4+dead+2+thong

Nonetheless, congrats to the winners. I managed to win the games, just waiting for a PM back.

Thanks for the positive comments on my NFS shot. I took in replay mode, since the photo mode in SHIFT (and maybe other NFS games) is broken, i.e. it says it has successfully uploaded your screenshot to needforspeed.com but there's no way to access your shots (if they actually exist) online, and further there's no way to manually take a screenshot in photo mode without ugly UI elements.
