We The Players Winners - July

  • Comment
Last month we announced our partnership with We The Players and their exciting prize draw exclusively for Nexus Mods users. The community response to this was fantastic and TokenGeek is back with us to reveal the lucky winners of the Nintendo Switch Lite and 5x $50 Steam Gift Cards for July. 

Before talking about the competition and announcing this month's winners, I just wanted to take a few moments and say a big thank you to the NexusMods community.


Without question, you have made me believe that what I am creating in WeThePlayers.com is worth it. I was expecting to have quite a few critiques come my way; instead, I was greeted by compliments, messages of encouragement and gratitude - to say it was humbling is an understatement, and I'm eternally grateful. This community was welcoming and engaging while I was here at Nexus Mods and continues to be a source of inspiration for me.


This month we have seen a vast number of reviews come our way, and reading through them all has been a joy. Thank you to every single person that has submitted content. We discovered games that we had never heard of before, rediscovered games we played growing up, and seen vastly different viewpoints from games we are currently playing. It's interesting to see that a video game can polarise opinion so extensively, for example - Assassin's Creed: Odyssey has seen scores between 5 and 9, No Man's Sky even more so with scores between 2 and 10! We hope that eventually, these reviews will help fellow gamers decide if a game is for them or not.



Now, onto the competition winners.

We have randomly picked five users who have submitted reviews for this month's $50 steam vouchers. So the winners of these are:

deltahalo241 >> deltahalo241
Apoca >> Apocahorse
EustaceCS >> Mrrrori
Nahti_ >> Nahti 
Ebra >> Ebe222

This month's Nintendo Switch Lite winner:

Thanoseid (Thanoseid) with the review of Celeste, ‘A Speedrunner Experience for Everyone’.


The reason we selected this review was that we loved the structure of the piece, from breaking the article down into easy bite-sized chunks to the comparisons made to other games. The author dances around the game, giving out snippets of relevant information as they explain why they love the game.

Congratulations, we will PM you in the next few days with details on how to claim your prizes.


It was so hard to choose just one review! We have had some great entries, and I thought it would be nice to showcase just a few more.

A Labor of Love Worth Playing (Stardew Valley) by itsafter7 was great because it broke the game and the review down to manageable bite-sized chunks. We loved the format of the review as it reminds us of the way magazine reviewers used to do it.

A Goosetastic Experience (Untitled Goose Game) by Necro_Ninja_Nate had us all smiling. We love the game and thought the review was very fitting. It tells you the reasons that Necro_Ninja_Nate loves the game and gives enough information to inform you of the pros and cons, including a price suggestion.

Just Buy Scholar of the First Sin, Basically a Better Version of This (Dark Souls II) by SamuraiSlashes, we've seen lots of variance in terms of how people are formatting their reviews, but SamuraiSlashes utilises a series of checkboxes showing where the game sits in several different categories. We've seen this approach on Steam before, but think it's a great way of getting a quick overview.

Fallout: New Vegas is the quintessential Fallout game, but not because it's a good game (Fallout: New Vegas) by ProfVerstrooid is an objective look at the game through the eyes of someone who nearly passed the game by as it wasn't the same as the games they were playing at the time (Call of Duty). 

Sweet Merciful God, Please Play This Game (Undertale) by Elkian is a review that without giving a single aspect of the game away makes us want to play it. Their love for the game is evident from the very beginning of the review, and by the end, we wanted to play the game!


So there we have it, the end of the first month (+ a few days) and over 600 reviews were submitted. We hope that you continue to enjoy WeThePlayers.com, thank you once again to Nexus Mods and we look forward to announcing the winners for August next month.

There are still more prizes to be won! Every month until 2021, you could win a Nintendo Switch Lite or a $50 Steam Gift Card just by reviewing a game at WeThePlayers.com. For a refresher on the event rules, check out the original announcement post.

      You're more than welcome.

      And as a bonus, it will be a £50 steam voucher - so you'll actually be receiving more than $50 :D
