Gabe Newell's stoic, almost pleading expression—Yes, I am posting to r/gaming; to r/motorsports too!—touched many in this week's Kotaku 'Shop Contest. So many I lifted the usual 20-finalist cap to get in the best ones. There are 31 inside, including overall No. 1 Zhesty!

Even with a super-sized 50-percent-moar 'Shop Contest roundup, inevitably someone got left off. So I encourage you to go back to the original post and scan all the entries in what was one of our most-entered contests ever, on the fourth anniversary of the feature.

As for why Zhesty, well, yes, I know that there were two entries with more than 100 stars, and zillions more with 30 or 40. But placing Gabe in "The Men Who Stare at Goats" just seemed so apropos to me.

Thanks to all who entered. There will be another contest tomorrow, and I hope it's this good.

Update: Whoops. I kind of got Comcast'ed there in Hector Rivera's shop, so I've removed it. My apologies for that NSFW surprise.
