The contest is now over, and the winners will be contacted shortly. It was tough picking the 5 best, but here are the entries (shortest first):
Disproportionately drawn dominatrix dungeon delvers destroying dragons defeating Demona doing decorous deeds demonstrating Divine Divinity!
I'm surprised that I only got a couple entries using alliteration.
Pessimeister (RPGWatch forum
- with a preamble which should evoke memories of a certain conversation for any who've gone through the catacombs)
Divine Divinity. Combines Diablo II's combat with the virtual world interactivity of an Ultima and the witty banter of Baldur's Gate. Play it. Now.
(And record your victory in our character honour thread you lazy heathens!)
Divine Divinity out-Diablos Diablo. Lively open world, engaging story, customize classes, the list goes on. Way ahead of its time, even now.
and a second entry is worth mentioning:
An in-game tip purposely suggested something which killed me. Troll level: Divine Divinity. I love this game.
I'm referring to Otho and his pigs...taught me the importance of the quicksave, that's for sure!
Here is my entry in the traditional Japanese form of poetry - the Tanka. 5-7-5-7-7 syl format and way under the character limit
Thank you Larian
Rivellon is compelling
So many hours spent
Warrior or survivor
No, the wizard will save all
I'm not exactly sure how to describe a game I never played,
So I'll give my input in the form of assumptions:
It looks like a 2D version of the Witcher, except you can't get laid;
or can you? I don't know, for it is something I never played;
Some say it is a copy of Diablo 2, same style and play,
But others says it's one of the best games ever,
a stunning music and a plot so clever,
a classic RPG, that you'll remember forever;
Who should I believe, which message should I get?
I reckon the latter, but I don't own the game yet...
Such a repulsive cover, such an unappealing name,
yet so full of magic and so challenging and fun a game!
Or is it...? I'm merely judging by looking at a screenshot,
for this is a game I actually never bought;
Skeletons seem to have a sense of humour and undeads too,
Which is something not quite there, on Diablo 2
But I'll have to stop comparing both as of now,
And finish this poem with a nice clean verse;
It's a shame I don't know how...
I'll post some runner-up descriptions, as well, though unfortunately do not have any consolation prizes. There were other entries just as good (maybe even better), but I should probably have less runner-ups than winners.
Divine Divinity: One of those rare gems that can end marriages.
Divine Divinity is like good fantasy book. Everytime you get to it you find something new
Simply put, one of the most underrated rpg's of all time. If it were a meal, Divine Divinity would be a bloody rare steak! With pie!
A timeless classic that will never get old.
An hero's world for the brave and the bold.
So gather your wits and weapons my friend.
And into the halls of evil descend.
Alas for the wicked takes no rest
And nor shall we til we've completed our quest.
Thanks to everyone who entered and all who participated in the forum discussions.
