Hi people,
I've never been too active in forums here on Steamgifts nor for creating giveaways. My comments are mostly related to thanking people who made GA's I won. You can check my stats by yourself finding the giveaways I entered, the ones I have won, the ones I sent, comments, and so on. I know many people judge a person from his stats and I don't complain about it. Feel free to blacklist me if you are able to rate a person from his profile. I'm not here to gain your favors.

Coming to us...
I want your "help" by writing down a game you would like to receive if you will be eventually picked at the end of... my degree.
I have collected 15 out of 120 ECTs so far, and I'm planning to select the winner the day after my graduation (unfortunately unknown).

The rules are simple:

  • 1 entry each
  • You can write down the game (possibly steam) you would like to receive starting from now to the day before my graduation
  • If you have already selected the game you would like to win if selected, you can change it until the day before my graduation

Important notes!

Since the studies are going quite well, I would like to add some new notes to this thread. In particular, I would inform you that the exams account for a total of 90 ECTs out of 120. The remaining 30 are split between an internship (6 ECTs) and the thesis (24 ECTs). At the end of the 90 ECTs linked to the exams, I will be able to anticipate if multiple winners will be picked (it will depend on my estimated graduation mark).

Important notes! #2

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Is this giveaway related to your thesis? (thank you Filipi for first asking)

  • Short answer: NO. This is just an idea that jumped to my mind to keep me up during the last "scholastic" months of my life.

2) Why are you doing this? (thank you PeterShepard for first asking)

  • Basically graduation day is one of the most important days in our life (I guess?)...I already have a bachelor but I think that it isn't the same thing as a master's degree. In a few words, I would like to share my happiness with one of you, who followed in some way my journey

3) What kind of help do you need? (thank you Bo0Mz for first asking)

  • I don't need any "material" help for my journey neither for exams nor (future) thesis. I just want you to write down the game of your dreams and have a free chance to win it

4) What are your plans? What are you majoring in? (thank Neomixer for first asking)

  • I'm attending a master's degree in finance

5) When's your graduation? (thank you Filipi again for first asking)

  • This is the point of the "game". My graduation date is potentially unknown (even to myself). I obviously want to graduate as soon as possible but you have to consider this is a long-term event (I would like to believe early 2022 is more than likely EDIT: Ahah, NO paolo)

6) What does ECT stand for? (thank you PossiblePsycho for first asking)

  • ECTs stands for "European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System" which expresses the weight of each exam in the degree. For our purpose, you can see them as the "progress" of my journey

7) How is going your journey?

  • Well, I will update this thread as soon as I increase my ECTs. The next increase is likely to be in January 2021.

8) Can I wait for a closer day to choose my pick?

  • Of course, but keep in mind that, since the journey is expected to take some time, you can also change your choice till the day before my graduation

9) Do you plan on going for a doctorate? (thank you RaisinCookiesAreGood for first asking)

  • Even if I enjoy helping students, I think that the journey would be too long for me...and after years of studying, I feel a bit tired. I would like to apply what I've studied and maybe find a quiet place to work

P.s: I thank everyone who helps me in formatting text or makes this thread cuter. Every suggestion is welcome.

Would you like to help me taking my grade writing down a game you would like to receive if you are picked?

Yeah, why not...after all it's always free
No, I really don't care about your life
Yes, do your best!
You will fail miserably

I wish I can go back to school to finish my degree, probably will do that in next year or two. If I won, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey DX will be great.

Remembering my study years... This moment is so stressful! Hope everything works out for you!
As for the game I would like to get... I don't want to ask for too expensive, I think "Little Busters!" will good.

Hey, I hope you're proud of how far you've come! I'm just finding this thread now, and going down that list of updates I can see how much progress you've made since you've started. Grad school's tough as nails, especially on mental health.

If I win, I'd love a copy of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. It's been a long time since I've added it to my wishlist, pushing seven years now, and it would be nice to finally see what all the fuss about it being the best platformer ever was all about.

I know I've read this a few times over the years and voted, but don't think I've commented.
Although it's taken you a little longer than you may have anticipated, you're almost there. Good luck with the remaining exams.

I've had experience studying a Masters degree, in person, n a subject I was interested in. As well as studying a Masters online in a subject related to my work but which I had little interest in. Tough at times, but I'm glad I have them under my belt and can fall back on them if I need to.

I tend to buy games I'm really interested in rather than try to win them but I'll say Grounded for now and update later, I guess!

Well, we don't know each other, but I'm so glad you're getting so close to a milestone in your life.
As an advice, if you allow me, enjoy your last moments there, you will often reminisce about them. You will have time to think about your future. :)

87/120 ECTs already! Steady as it goes.... and great progress in difficult times with Corona and all that. I can imagine lots of students got demotivated in the past years, so props to you for still going strong!

As for my entry; I'd like Red Dead Redemption 2. Hopefully this 2019 game is heavily discounted by the time you graduate! :D

Good luck!
