  3. September 2018: Mod's Choice Awards (Nintendo Switch Prize)

Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

It's my 2 year Anniversary with GameFAQs Competitons! So this month we have an EPIC PRIZE! As you saw in the title, we are giving away a Nintendo Switch! Utilizing the power of Amazon, you can create a wishlist that keeps your address hidden from me, and I can then purchase items off that list. As such anyone who wants to win the Switch needs to do this. If you need help making the list, Amazon has a lot of helpful tutorials.

So the theme is Mod's Choice. As such, I asked a few mods what their favorite video games were, then I scoured box shots on GameFAQs and took a 100 pixel by 100 pixel square from each box shot. Your task is to guess the game and the mod whose favorite game it is. ;) Don't worry, I'll give you guys a list of mods who submitted games. :P

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by @yoshifan1

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "September Competition Entry" ALSO INCLUDE A LINK TO THE WISHLIST WITH THE NINTENDO SWITCH ON IT! This is just the base console, but when the competition ends, I will purchase it for the winner.

Now the coordinate grid is labeled for you guys. Your job is to guess the game each square is from, and the mod who submitted it. You don't have to get the system!

Use Letter-Number : Game – Mod

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive 2 points for guessing the correct game and 3 points for guessing the correct Moderator.

Prizes are:
1st Place: One Nintendo Switch or 60 Karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answers are it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

The exception to the above is the Switch, if you win it, you will not receive the Karma prize. In the event of a tie for first place, I will use Random.org to select the winner of the Switch.

The Grid!
And yes I know A1 and B1 are blank. That is intentional.

The Mods!
Note that two mods did submit the same game... So if you guess either one of them for that game you will get full credit. This also means that one mod on this list won't be needed for your answer. :P

I do Random.org as it is generally fairer. I set a deadline so people have time to get their entries in. I don't want to punish people who use the whole time because someone else may have had more time to work on it early. I know I work full time myself, and I wouldn't always have time to work on these early. :P

at least it's not as bad as guessing moderators. Most moderators hang out on a few select boards and I hardly recognize the vast majority of those names so how are we supposed to know what their personal gaming preferences are >_<
