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

29/06/2021: +9 ECTs (54/120 ECTs)
11/11/2021: +6 ECTs from internship (60/120 ECTs)
17/01/2022: +6 ECTs (66/120 ECTs)
24/05/2022: +9 ECTs (75/120 ECTs, this was a tough one)
21/06/2022: +6 ECTs (81/120 ECTs)

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).

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 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 or (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 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 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.

Is this "help" you're asking for a part of what you're doing for your degree, like a study or thesis, or are you simply doing this just for a fun event/giveaway?

When's your graduation by the way? September/October seems like a weird time to graduate so I can only assume you're doing this way ahead of time. Good luck with your degree though!

As for my entry, Red Dead Redemption 2.

No, to be honest It is just an idea jumped in my mind, nothing related to my thesis. Since I'm 15/120 it will take some time and unfortunately it is a bit hard to have a forecast for the date...I guess probably Jannuary 2022.
Long term GA :)
Thank you anyway!

I'm also not sure what help you need, so I'll just assume your graduate thesis involves conducting a survey to see what games people want the most.

As for me...I think I'll go for Mega Man 11.

Good luck on your degree! Originally I wasn't going to request a game, but I reread your original post and it seems like the game we put is important to your degree? I'm guessing it's your thesis.

I'll enter for One Step From Eden if that's the case. If that's not the case and you're just doing the giveaway for funsies, you can disregard my entry then.

I choose FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE. I'm also (like others) curious about the connection between your degree and this giveaway. Or maybe there is none and it's just for fun? 🤔

I'm as confused as everyone else; anyway, good luck! As for the game, I'll go with Beyond A Steel Sky.

Also, what does ECT stand for? Various dictionaries only tell me that it's an acronym for electroconvulsive therapy.

Edit: changed my choice to Baldur's Gate 3.

I was hoping to create confusion ahah especially creating something of "uncommon". So far ECTs stands for "European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System" which express the weight of each exam in the degree. For our purpose you can see them as the "progress" of my journey :)

Aha, I see my mistake now, I should have searched for ECTs (plural), not for ECT! Thanks for the explanation.

Now's not the time to put you in debt buying triple A games so I'll choose something on the lower price end: Cuphead.

It's part of the game, I put by myself all poll's options :D not a problem selecting the game you would like to recive if picked, no matter if it is a AAA or whatever...Since the probability to be selected decreases as people join... don't waste your chance by choosing something you would't properly like to recive!

Good luck, it will be a great achievement!

I'll go with Cyberpunk 2077, even though I don't understand how it might help you! It might actually hurt you because it's expensive...

Well, you have to take in consideration two things:
1) Even if everyone choose an expensive title, only one will recive it (spoiler: maybe two? further information later)
2) You have to keep in mind that after 1.5 years its price will decrease (maybe?). However you can still have the chance to win a AAA game changing your choice till the day before my (unknown) graduation date

Thank you so far :)
