Welcome to this years 'What are you trying to win lately' thread! The rules are the same as Last year:

In a single post, state the name of the game(s) you've been entering the most giveaways for recently but have been unable to win.
Then, if someone with a spare key for it is feeling generous, you might just get a nice little Christmas present :)

Last years thread was incredibly successful, with hundreds of games being given away and almost 1500 posts in total by the time the thread closed! Lets make this another year to remember :)

EDIT: And that's it folks! Thanks go out to all those who chose to give this holiday season, and a very merry Christmas to all!

"Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus?" (165 entries) wins by far, if I ever win it and ends up disappointing I'm gonna be so upset :D
"Tiny Tina's Wonderlands" (29 entries), comes next I think. I loved the DLC in Borderlands 2 and hope it would be similar if not better.
"Beyond a Steel Sky" (23 entries), I remember I enjoyed the original many decades (:o) ago.
Lastly, "RAD" (somewhere between 100-200 entries or so, the search engine finds several other games with rad in it), my only game missing from my double fine collection, there's not a lot of GA's for it but whenever I see one I enter it. Probably the GA I've been entering for the longest time :D

I never expect anything, but it's nice to just share. Though I have been very fortunate in the previous years you've done this event so thank you for that jiggakills. And of course I played everything that was gifted to me :)

Hmm it was an interesting experience. Not much of a murder mystery, but rather keep replaying the game until you uncover enough evidence to find the real killer. Not the best story and kind of predictable, but I enjoyed the game none the less. A solid 7/10, thanks one last time :)

100% already, that was quick. As long as it was not totally disappointing, i am happy it was in good hands. But doesn't sound like it was worth 165 entries ;)

I still enjoyed it, no regrets at all :D It was kinda cheesy, but also had some humor in it. The actor playing Marcus was so bad though :D And I don't easily complain about bad acting. But I had fun with it, which is what really matters. Also I have like 5/6h in it but my internet went offline for a bit yesterday.

Really curious what will be mentioned in the thread, might find some missed gems!
Well my first thought went to "the forgotten city", but since I managed to win it last Tuesday...

So it would be a toss between
Go Home Dinosaurs! Thanks a lot BanjoBearLV

Mainly "The Legend of Tianding" cause I had played the demo from a free demo key. So I know that I will enjoy this game. And "Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga". Though this one doesn't have much giveaways yet.

Super Panda Adventures - This is probably mt biggest miss as of yet. Looks like a pretty short and cute metroidvania and there's honestly been a lot of them, yet somehow I keep missing each and every one. Thanks a lot Carenard!
The Telltale Walking Dead games (S1, S2, New Frontier, Final Season and 400 days dlc) - I have actually some hope for this due to the recent bundles, currently entered in at least a dozen or more, so fingers crossed. 🀞 - Thank you eeev for S2!, Thanks a lot Thedarksid3r for S1! and Thanks a lot schmetti for the 400 days!
Arkham Knight - I love Batman and I love the arkham series, unfortunately this one evaded me during the recent craze and doesn't seem to be in GAs too often. Got my eye out for it though.
Resident Evil HD remaster - This one while not as rare as the previous does appear to be uncommon in nature. Same as above.
Lacuna - This is something that caught my eye recently when I was looking for some more point and click games and something I have been trying to get. Thankfully, this appears to be a regular here, so have high hopes of snagging this one eventually. Thanks, stranger.

Edit - A very big thank you to Wolfedood and PoeticKatana, for gifts that I wasn't even expecting. Desperados III and Red Bow respectively. :)
Also, thanks SpiralTraveller for the game, Inside the Gear. Wasn't RE but I had fun with it nonetheless. ^^
Happy holidays everyone! Stay safe and may the new year bring good tidings for you all.

If we're going by sheer numbers for me that's A Juggler's Tale. It's been in so many bundles lately that I've got 83 entries now, would be cool to see others share their exact number of entries too for comparison :)
Second place is Patch Quest with 78 entries, after that it's the combined Wolfenstein series at 71 if you count those.

Not asking for the games because I'm low level, just wanted to share and encourage people to let us know their exact numbers if they feel like it!

I have recently created an account on steamgifts and thus I haven't entered that many giveaways. I only enter games that I know I'll enjoy. That being said, I regret not buying Deathloop and A Plague Tale: Innocence when they were bundled. So far, I haven't seen those two games here, probably because they were bundled a long time ago. However, I'll enter them once I see them as they are the two games I would have loved to own if I could at the time buy the bundle.

Happy holidays everyone

I had been entering to a lot of the giveaways from the past humble bundles, but some of them I ended up just buying them, so it's hard to keep track xD.

Now I have been trying my luck with games from the Jingle Jam.

Space Gladiators
Golfie (Just won it :O).
Eyes in the Dark (Just won it here on steamgifts :D)
Deepest Chamber
Imp of the Sun
SILT
Trifox

From previous bundles, Lost Castle, Dead Estate, Void Bastards, We Need to Go Deeper, Nex Machina, Leap of Fate, Darkside Detective, Katana Zero, Synthetik, Fight'n rage, Breathedge and One Step From Eden have around 100 entries each (some of them over 300 xD).
Damn, roguelites everywhere xD.

I have also seen quite a number of Eastern Exorcist giveaways, but I have no idea where are they coming from.

Depends on how you define lately or entering the most for.

I am sure there are things I have entered more of but those are semi random it looks interesting but I am not really aiming for it kind of things

On the Visual Novel side, every single Sakura VN that has been bundled(I am sad I missed these bundles, I know they are kind of generic in terms of VN's stories... but cute anime girls make the world go round... will likely snap buy if a rebundle happens) ... - 200 entries and counting combined for them all... only one from before my super long hiatus.

but more actual games... Eastern Exorcist, Wizard of Legend(traded for this finally) and Greedfall (thanks reddit giveaways) make up a decent portion
made me cross check things... I swear I entered more giveaways for Pillars of Eternity(I seriously don't know why I haven't bought this yet... I started following it when it first came to the steam store) and Fable Anniversary, guess they just stick with me more.
edit addition now that everyone is checking later pages :P: Superhot has been eating alot of points to, silly jingle jam
edit again: added Dec 18th, Godfall has been eating alot of points lately to, alchemists castle while not eating alot of points reminded me it keeps showing up.

I will need to poke through peoples wants wants later... I might play Santa to help clear my keylist.
