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:
15/09/2020: The thread has been created (15/120 ECTs)
15/01/2021: +6 ECTs (21/120 ECTs)
18/01/2021: +6 ECTs (27/120 ECTs)
10/02/2021: +3 ECTs (30/120 ECTs)
14/06/2021: +6 ECTs (36/120 ECTs)
15/06/2021: +9 ECTs (45/120 ECTs)
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)
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).
1) Is this giveaway related to your thesis? (thank you Filipi for first asking)
2) Why are you doing this? (thank you PeterShepard for first asking)
3) What kind of help do you need? (thank you Bo0Mz for first asking)
4) What are your plans? What are you majoring in? (thank Neomixer for first asking)
5) When's your graduation? (thank you Filipi again for first asking)
6) What does ECT stand for? (thank you PossiblePsycho for first asking)
7) How is going your journey?
8) Can I wait for a closer day to choose my pick?
9) Do you plan on going for a doctorate? (thank you RaisinCookiesAreGood for first asking)
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?
All the very best mate.
I'm a philosopher in my own heart. I frequently meditate and ponder over things. I like to relate to my chakra and am a firm believer of universal Vibrations and that your desires manifest depending on the kind of vibrations you send out to the universe.
As an example,
When you say “I want this to happen,” you emit an unspoken vibration within you that holds on to the absence of your desire. The strong, demanding language is resisting your manifestations from happening.
Instead of framing your desires with an “I want” or an “I need” statement, I like to reframe them with “Wouldn’t it be nice if…?”.
This reframing of your desires softens your request to the Universe and puts you in a better vibration. A vibration that is a closer match with your desires.
So mate Wouldn't it be nice if i won a copy of Death Stranding for a experiencing a truly master piece story
I really like such a positive attitude, probably because I lack it... I am that kind of person who sets himself in the "worst-case-scenario" and do not expect anything from events
I think it's better not to set the bar too high for yourself. Otherwise you will disappoint yourself if you did not reach it, despite making progress towards your end goal.
If you set the bar to an achievable level, then you can be happy with the steps you've taken, and even better if you exceed it. 😊
The real problem with me is my extreme and hidden ambition. However, I perfectly know I am not a genius, but most likely an average guy with a hard-working approach to life. I perfectly know I will not reach the moon, it is clear, but I have the tendency to push myself and try to reach my limits. The master's degree has already been difficult from my point of view, many variables came in, but now it's almost completed and I am looking for the next challenge...
Even if I reach a result, I am happy for like a few hours, maximum 1 day. I know I am not truly enjoying it but I just look forward to the next challenge.
Taking an example, I did not celebrate my bachelor's degree...just because I thought that I had to take the master's one before taking a breath.
Keep in mind that you have to learn to walk before running, when a kid begins to walk, it's not "hey now I'm walking yay", it takes steps and missteps and that's the important part to remember about walking.
There will be moment when you'll trip, those moments will uncover area you need to work on for eventually walking then running. Trust in yourself and don't forget that it takes time and it's ok if you trip.
I can write a lot about developing positive attitude. Took me many years to reach my zen mode.
But if somebody asks me for a single point of advise as to how to begin the journey, i do have that one advise.
Being thankful for all the little things in our lives, around us, in form of nature, or materialistic needs. This single habit spirals you towards the greater learnings.
I think I am stuck at this level...fortunately I developed this kind of sensibility some years ago and I never let it go. Unfortunately being too sensible changes also your nature...and in this worlds of lions, you may be exchanged for a prey
Wherever you are man, just look around you, try to identify 3 things you are thankful about. nobody is stuck anywhere, neither in the ups nor in the downs.
It's all sine wave, equal ups, equal downs.
But alas, you aren't graduating in philosophy so i am no help to you at all hahaha
The graduation itself is not the "real" goal. What is important is what you are going to do with the knowledge you accumulate.
The effort you put into getting your degree is just a way for your to demonstrate to the world that you can achieve something if you put your heart into it, without giving up along the way.
Keep it up!
Fallout 4 would be plenty.
"The effort you put into getting your degree is just a way for your to demonstrate to the world that you can achieve something if you put your heart into it, without giving up along the way."
This is for me the true meaning of the uni, after my years passed taking exams on exams. Most of the time knowledge gained during the courses is useless, dated, minimal, or incomplete. It is only upon us to dig into the details and transform an insight into an idea, which can be really useful in real life.
Congratulations! 2 more exams to go, you are nearly there at the finishing line!
I wish you all the best with the rest of your studies and know all your hard work will pay off :D
I have been a big fan of the Yakuza series and would love to try out Yakuza: Like a Dragon if I got the chance!
I don't want to illude myself about the post-graduation journey...but you bet guys I will keep you updated :)
Congrats and good luck ! Do what makes u happy.
And for the game Dying Light 2 Stay Human i would choose
Thank you so much for joining :)
so nice to reply everyone. So kind of u ^^
The upcoming COD game would be nice, but sadly that isn't coming out till October 28, so I'll go with Horizon Zero Dawn.
Well, from your sentence, you assume I will be done before 28 October...I'll tell you a secret then, if everything goes well and as planned, you may be right ;)
Fun fact: October 28 is my birthday, so it'll be a gift I can't afford. Let's just pray it wouldn't be as bad as BF2042.
Maybe luck will bless you :)
I hope you have some successful exams! I've just started university and it's been a bit hard adjusting, so I can only imagine how difficult these exams are, haha.
I guess if I was to choose a game, it would Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
Hope You Graduate with Metal and Medals(see what I did there?).I wish you good luck for your Future.Hmm, since we are just guessing that I can be picked as a winner and that we are guessing when you'll graduate,I would like to make a Blind Shot(regarding the game to ask for depending if it might be given by Epic for Free before your grad or might release after your grad,both have same probability).I'll choose RedFall by Arkane Studios(Deathloop/Dishonored Guys).A Graduation Gift(Free Game) is a gift/game,so you can give any if I win but my Blindshot is Redfall(hoping it releases same time as your grad,i.e believing it releases and you graduate soon :) ).Thanks for this Activity/Event.God Bless Ya.
Congrats on having more exams done! You're getting close now, mate!
Your work ethic is going to carry you further than you yet realize.
Good luck man. Hope you can pull through and get an honorary degree!
My choice: elden ring
Congrats and good luck! If I'm chosen, I'd love the Halo Infinite campaign.
I graduated 3 times. Did M.A. degree in 4 years (exceeded ECTs as I just liked it and it was an interesting studies). Wish you good luck and have fun. Studying and science are a lot of fun!
If I win, please give some money to sick children charity. When I was a kid I spent a year at hospitals, so I know how sad kids can be when they are sick.
Good luck on your studies! I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)
I really hope that you'll manage to achieve your dreams, it's always nice to see people sharing those moments with us, strangers. In France we don't wish good luck because we believe that it can bring bad luck, so instead we say "SHIT", I wish you the biggest shit possible, like an elephant one plus a whole zoo as bonus.
As for the game, I'm following Stray since the day it's been announced, it's getting released this month and my excitement is as high as my wallet is empty.
hope you the best, so far you have 81 ECT only 39 to go, and good luck you got it
and for the game if I win I want you to choose the game for me
Finding a job you love after graduating is the best.
My choice:The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition
Good luck. Almost there. Also prepare to have a job line up too. That is equally as important as graduating.
I would say Sekiro just so I can play it again.
GOOD LUCK !!
Wish you the best !
And I wanna go with Cyberprank 2077
I usually use non-Eng language, so I couldn't know all about yours.
Anyway you left only 15 ECTs excluding the thesis, I hope you get good results.
My one is "Mass Effect™ Legendary Edition" that 3 in one.
Good luck on tackling those ECT! It's always nice to hear people exciting moment of life! Embrace yourself, Job life awaits after this study phase haha.
I think I'm gonna pick "Forza Horizon 5 Premium Ed." as my games
You're almost there! Best of luck for the last spurt!
I'll go with The Pathless!
I've been looking at the thread occasionally since its creation, don't want anything but thought to say best of luck! Seems you're close :D
I hope you're doing okay, I'm about to graduate myself next week from my chemistry masters, the sense of relief once it's all tidied up is all worth it. Regarding the games, I would say SnowRunner for some questionably peaceful trucking :)
hope u do excellent on ur exams, the game I wish for would be Red Dead Redemption 2. Thanks and the bestest wishes :)
