    Cliché, but still: received my Bachelor of Science degree (Mechanical Engineering). Not that it means much in terms of final graduation (I'm still studying for the Masters degree), but still something since now I'm about 60-70% done with my Uni studies. In regards to the degree, I'm probably gonna get a summer job situated in Shanghai because of the excursion I did there in September.

    So all in all, getting forward in life and having a positive position for next year too. Can't beat that in my case, since the economy is what it is. Uncertainty is sure as hell, but at least the future isn't that uncertain anymore :3

    My happiest memory this year is definitely being able to complete my new years resolution and finish off paying my whole school debt. It's been a tough 2 years after graduation but I finally was able to pay it all off through sheer will of saving and being cheap haha.

    Hard to choose, but one that resonated for several years and coming to pass happened this year in gaming: Max Payne 3's release. Maybe you have to be a fan of the games to know what this feeling is like, but it has been many years since Max Payne 2 and seeing Max again was a long time coming.

    I'll be honest... I've been so depressed this year, it's hard for me to tell what my happiest memory is of this year... I never thought I really would be happy, due to family, and money issues...
    But, my older brother surprised me, when he bought me a Nintendo 64. Now, I know it's just a game console, but this mean a lot to me because when I was about 6 years old, we would always sit down, play it, and have the time of our lives. Everyday, it was a beat-em-up in Super Smash Bros., or a hunters game of Turok. I don't think I've ever had that much fun with any other game console in my life. He, eventually had to sell it, though, due to financial issues. I was extremely sad, but, he had to do it.
    But, 10 years later, he walks into my room, holding a giant box. I ask him what it is, and he tells me to open it and find out. I carefully opened the package, and when I saw the N64 logo on the front, my heart skipped a beat... I continued to open it, and right before me was an N64. And then he held up another bag, which had 2 games in it, Super Smash Bros., and Turok. I couldn't believe he had actually gone out and bought another N64, with the same games we had back then (We obviously had more games than this, but these 2 stood out the most). When I went to go put the one of the games in, I could see myself from those many years ago, doing the same thing. And, just as expected, we probably had the most fun with it, compared to any of the other consoles we own. This is honestly why the Nintendo 64 stands out as the best game console, to me, and why it was my happiest moment in 2012.

    Probably answered already somewhere but what's the closing date for this contest, final draw date, etc? Need to pencil in my inevitable disappointment at the final result but I need to know if it's going on my current calendar or my new 2013 one.

    I know that feeling. I had a similar moment a few years ago when my crusade to get legendary troll Dash_Jr to get off Gamefaqs finally saw results.

    Every time we touched was the happiest moment for me. He's not around anymore, but those moments together were the most special.

    my happiest memory maybe was this christmas, because of family coming together and celebrating. but something less cliche, well, realizing that Virtue's last reward was being released in Europe, and finally getting my hands on a copy.

    but, There were a lot of happy memories like everyone else probably. but I guess the happiest memory would be being together with family and friends...
    well, these ''happiest memory'' things indeed sound very cliche....
