It's that time again, to participate in this crazy thing we call democracy and VOTE! That's right, put those pencils down, close that photoshop program, and give those crayons back to your cousin!

Now, gaze in wonder and excitement at, I dare say, one of the better turnouts the FAC has had! Now, enough of my rambling, let's see those ENTRIES!


Less Ashamed Of Self

The Phalanx

Electronic Samurai









I want to thank each and every participant for entering, you all have put allot of work into these masterpieces, and for that, you should be proud.

But now, it's up to you, the viewers at home/work/cafe/friend's house to decide which of these artists shall be dubbed, for this month, WINNER!

Remember, to vote, send me a PM with your top three choices, in order, and maybe a few comments about the contest.

Remember, cast your vote before the 29th of March or else dreams will die!

Something to keep in mind in choosing a theme: the people who HAVEN'T played the games. Since System Shock 2 is such an amazing game, I once considered choosing it as the theme. But many who have not played it would research into the game, revealing major spoilers and such. Then the art would spoil plot details for anyone who votes (or the poor souls who see the art without voting). SS2 is one of those games that EVERYONE SHOULD PLAY. The fact that not everyone knows what it's all about, and that none but those who've played it know anything about the plot, is part of what makes it so awesome and mysterious. SS2 has the kind of story that you actually need to experience - you can't feel the full depth and magnitude of the story unless you play it. Preferably alone, at night, in the dark, with headphones.

From what I've read, Shadow of the Collosus was kind of the same deal - you need to PLAY it to know its power. Having not played the game myself, the contest gave me little motivation to delve into the plot details and really appreciate the game and the experience of playing it, thus I was not very appreciative of the art =( Same with Ico, I suppose. I wish I had a PS2....

By the way, SS2 is a PC game that is now free (completely legal to download), get it now!! It's also old (bad graphics ahoy!), so it can run on ye olde junk computer. If everyone on OCR beats SS2, then we can have it as a contest theme ^_^ Maybe if Bioshock is a big hit, we could have that as a future theme =D

Earthbound? I'd say enough people have played it for it's awsomeness to be appreciated. Castlevania? Contra? Kriby? MGS? Chrono seris? Katamari damacy? Half-Life? Same story, I think; wide enough audience for a good compitition. Warcarft? ehh-- TOO wide an audience. Blizzard's FIRST annual art contest alone had enough Warcraft art to choke an orc - the world doesn't need any more :wink:
