Civ V or Mafia 2? Yours Free for Golden Joystick Vote

“If it’s free it’s for me.” That was one of Nana Sharkey’s most oft-repeated catch phrases and a good indication of her frugal lifestyle. And even though she never played a videogame in her life, she’d be all over the new deal from Green Man Gaming and the Golden Joystick Awards.

CVG’s Golden Joysticks are in their 31st year, and this time around, they’re soliciting votes across 15 different categories with a nice little incentive. Fill out an online ballot and you’ll receive your choice of Civilization V or Mafia 2 on Steam for free.

Details: you’ve got to be over 16 years old, and you must vote and fully fill out a “Thank you for participating form.” In that form, you must enter a valid email address, register an account with Green Man Gaming, and opt-in to receive promo messages from the online games retailer. Do that all before October 20 and you’ll receive your free game code within two days. Of note: Green Man says there are a limited number of codes and they must be redeemed on Steam by October 25.

I think I covered everything. Check out the full terms and conditions if you have any questions.

Now then, Civ V is already in my Steam library so I’m going to vote and pick up a copy of Mafia 2.

Thanks for the heads up Mike, I would love a free copy of Mafia 2 on my steam account.

It seems voting seems temporarily unavailable right now, but I guess everyone wants a free game. :)

Voting was down last night (10p 2013/10/09) after this showed up on Reddit. Still waiting for it to come back up…

Have submitted my votes, created an account, received an email with the link but when I click it tells me I haven’t voted yet. I don’t understand, the very same link telling me I have voted so I can have my copy when I the web loads it tells me I haven’t voted, weird. Tried twice with the same problem. Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!

its a scam you vote and get the verification says you haven’t voted. “Here click the link to vote now” (clicks link) “these are the games you voted for”. I WANT MY IN FREE GAME!!!
