    All you need to do is vote in the GMG Golden Joystick Awards (you just need an account on both CVG and GMG, both using same email). Every voter gets a game (while supplies last), and voting goes until October 25.

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com/joystick/ (the voting page)

    This has been up since yesterday, but the CVG website has been encountering issues ever since this was posted to Reddit. Hopefully it's working fine now, as I was able to claim my Steam key this morning.

    Ugh, CVG is horribly overloaded right now.

    EDIT: I somehow managed to vote after all those time-outs. Waiting for my Civ5 key right now :P

    And to think that there are people who believe PC gaming is expensive.

    I forgot
    Just gave it a try, was barely able to vote! Lol.

    Got sent an email confirmation thing, but so far it just says I haven't voted yet...will try every couple of hours or so, may just be lagging behind a bit. Civ 5, here I come!

    I would like a copy of civ 5 but that would mean signing up for things.
    Oh well.

    Ok, you can stop this now. As much as I like playing games on a computer I'm getting real tired of seeing your "PC master race" posts everywhere.

    Please stop making the rest of us PC gamers look bad just because you enjoy making yourself seem like a complete arse.

    it wont give me the game, keeps saying I didnt vote on gmg
    with a link to go back to cvg, and than it says I did vote and go to gmg to get my free game
    its just running me in circles, maybe you have to wait 24 hours? idk

    It took me about 12 hours to receive my code last night, you'll most likely just need to wait a little more :)

    Takes a few hours for it to verify, most likely because of all the traffic.

    Their cert looked legit on my machine -- issued by digicert earlier this year, expires a few years from now and otherwise looked like it had what it needed to. By any chance are the date and time settings on your computer off?

    Mine says the same thing--but I'm guessing this is just a generic message. I figure I'll get the keys by tomorrow night--and if not, who the fuck cares, it was free :/
