Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

This month, we're trying something different, your task is to caption 5 screenshots. The person with the best captions according to the moderation staff will be crowned victorious.

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.

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. (Yay copy paste forms!)

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your captions. In your PM, please use the subject line "June Competition Entry"

Use the following format:
1) -Your Caption Here-
2) -Your Caption Here-
3) -Your Caption Here-
4) -Your Caption Here-
5) -Your Caption Here-

Scoring & Prizes
Entries will be scored by the judges and the total of your 5 caption scores will be your final score.

Prizes are:
1st Place: 50 karma and a $20 Gift Card (Of your choice)
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 answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Finally, the people who don't take the grand prize but have the next highest scored entries will receive 5 karma each, on top of any other karma they may have won.

In the event of a tie, I will use Random.org to select the winner.

Ya know, one of these days I'm gonna think of something to put here...

I've already come up with a caption for one of them, but it might help if we knew what games those screenshots were from. I only know 2 of those games, and only because the name is at the bottom of one of the screenshots.

This is what I get when asking other mods for funny screenshots. <.<

Should have seen the ones I didn't use...

But the goal here is something that will be universally good even if you don't know the game.

See, this is why I don't try to do comedy. I can get a funny concept in my head, but I can't put it into words without losing its punch.

I think the real issue here is the mods have poor taste in games

Find screens from something better and/or more obscure

Preferrably with horrendous graphics

There are correct answers? Uh oh. I forgot to carry a 6.

Yeah, I don't think I've gotten my karma from the last competition... in April.

Yeah, Allen usually does the karma in batches when he has time. I keep a record of when he adds it. :P

Something about not wanting to go into the database too often to edit the karma.
