All good things must come to an end, and Child's Play is definitely a good thing. This is going to be the last prize post before we conduct the drawing, and I have to say that our first attempt and raising money for Child's Play has already been a huge success. We've gone past our $5,000 goal rather handily, and if you head over to the Child's Play site and scroll down, you'll see that Ars Technica is now listed as a gold sponsor on the site. Very good stuff guys! The amount of the donations and the nice things everyone has been saying in the e-mails has put a grin on my face every day since we began this.
For this final prize pack, we decided to dig into our own personal gaming collections to give you something special. The first thing we're going to put in there is a shiny, fresh FC Twin system. This allows you to play both NES and SNES games without all the fuss and blowing and cleaning of the classic systems. Of course, the system is going to need some food.
So how about we throw in the following games, in case, with instructions?
Final Fantasy IIIIllusion of Gaia
That's not a bad addition to any collection, but things heat up when we look at what games we'll be giving away cart-only. Unfortunately I don't have the boxes for these, but for sheer classic RPG gaming, this is a collection that is simply amazing.
Chrono TriggerBreath of FireOgre Battle
You could lock yourself in your apartment for all of next year with these games and be happy. Just in case you need something you can carry with you though, I'll throw in a box of two slimes. These were give-aways at E3 two years ago, and after finding them in a box I knew that I could find them a good home in this collection.
I hope you're as excited about this collection as I am. This is a great system for classic games, with five of the best SNES RPGs ever released. If this doesn't get you excited about donating, I'm not sure what will. These games have been in my collection for years, but I thought it was time to share them with someone who will give them a lot of love and play time. With so many generous donations already, that shouldn't be hard. My only fear is that I'm not sure how I can top this for next year.
