    As cliche as it may sound, graduating high school. It was happy in a sad way though. Like it kinda marked a whole new stage in my life but knowing all your friends are going off to college and you'll never see some of these people again was certainly something.

    A freaking Wii u deluxe console? Holy shit that's generous. Well, I'd say my favorite memory this year on gbatemp would be all the MK7 days I had with my friends here on the temp. Especially after meeting KIO.
    Favorite memory in general would be my first paycheck this year. Man that made me feel good, my first paycheck ever.

    My happiest memory was when my little one called me "Daddy" for the first time. It's a special feeling I'll never forget.

    EDIT: When does this contest end? When will the winners be announced? Thanks!

    my son's first birthday! it still brings tears of joy to my eyes to think about how wonderful and amazing it is to, both, be a father and have such a perfect son. this to me is what life means. he turned 1 in July.

    So is this all we need to do to enter, just describe the happiest moment of our life in 2012?

    if so, then there are plenty more...I got a new job just last week, more money for my family! all the developments on the Wii hombrew scene, namely DIOS MIOS, the impossible became possible. overall it was a great year, hope 2013 is awesome too.

    My favorite memory would be having met my girlfriend. My lovely gamer girlfriend who kicks my butt at Beat Hazard. We met over the game Limbo, which in turn has now reserved a spot in my heart. Seeing people's secret santa's gifts on the thread was also nice.

    For me it was ice skating early in the year. For the first time in many years (at least twenty) the lake near us had ice thick enough to skate across the entire lake. So my father and I decided to do just that and skated app. 5 km in about half an hour. It was especially fun due to my new skates. I used my father's old skates before that, and I'd fall at least four or five times every time i'd go skating. Now I only fell three times in total (on five separate skating trips).

    My happiest memory was when I found out when my found out my degree results. I got myself a BA (hons) and could not boast I got a good degree from a good university.

    It meant a lot because going back six years ago when I left school, I was genuinely uncertain in life. I wasn't happy at all at school and my grades were pretty average at best. And as a person, I was very insecure, I didn't really have a clue of what type of person I really was in a non-emo way. My development as a person had stagnated.

    I somehow got myself into a good sixth form college and chose some subjects. And there my life came together. From a academia perspective, my grades became shit hot. I got AAB in my A-levels. As a person I changed and became the person I am now. Handsome, intelligent, articulate, awesome, funny and overall kick ass.

    I got into University pretty easily. And getting my degree was a fantastic culmination of the previous six years where I've completely transformed from an awkward shy teenager to a complete dickhead of a man.

    Christ, I'm fucking brilliant.

    Happy memories? Hmm. Happiest memory for me was when I got to spend time around my family. Nowadays it doesn't happen at all with conflict. Wii U Deluxe is incredibly generous, thanks you guys at GBAtemp for an awesome year!

    Seeing my fiancee's face after she got a kindle fire. Her quirkyness (not an actual word, I know) was priceless. She reminded me of a child after receiving a Christmas present.
