2017 E3 Contest Winners

And the winners are…

This year, we asked you to tell us about your gaming comeback story—about a time where you started a game, got stuck but finally came back to beat it—in exchange for 2 FREE tickets to E3.

In a nutshell, you guys did not disappoint.

We received a whopping 842 entries, each telling its own unique story. We heard from community members who played for days on end, rage quit (been there) but were so determined to finish that they eventually came back and beat it. We heard from gamers who used video games to overcome significant personal challenges, from disease to economic struggles to family hardships. We heard from friends whose love of video games and determination to finish that one game brought them closer together.

Once again, we’re overwhelmed by the strength, passion and uniqueness of our community. Thank you all for giving us the opportunity to do what we love—to hear your amazing stories, highlight how great you are and give you free tickets.

So, without further ado, check out our favorite quotes from the top 15 gaming comeback stories from our 15 awesome E3 ticket winners:
