    Last year you might remember Green Man Gaming giving away Civ 4 and another game for free during the Golden Joystick awards when you voted for your favorite games, and this year they're doing it again!

    GMG is giving away XCOM: Enemy Unknown keys when you vote on Golden Joystick, and when you set up an account on Playfire and link it to your Steam account.

    Great game, would recommend it to everyone. Also free is always good, especially in this case :)

    Nothing ever appeared for me to link my account to steam. I'm calling this a scam/spam right now!

    EDIT: Nevermind it's the playfire account you have to link. But I don't see/understand what playfire has to do with the voting, they are a completely different company then joystick. So how does playfire now you voted or is the joystick part optional?

    Playfire and Green Man Gaming merged back in 2012 so this is all handled by the same company.

    So they'll probably go off the email used between the two, and then use the Steam account linked to Playfire?

    This is what I am wondering, cause of the two sites, you only can link steam with playfire. And You have to sign up for CVG to vote for the joystick.

    Last year when they did this they gave you a Steam serial on Green Man Gaming after successfully linking your Steam account.

    I made my CVG account to vote, voted, THEN made a playfire and linked it to my steam... will I still get the serial code on the 23rd?

    its bs that you have to go through 3 sites to get the game
    I cant even get the key because it says there is something wrong with my steam account linking
