Kotaku Shop Contest: Bored To Death Winners

Last week's shop contest set a record for entries - more than 1,000! The volume made finding 20 worthy finalists a bit of a challenge, but we did.

Lots of folks made the skeleton wait on Duke Nukem, Half Life 2: Episode 3, and others. SG-17 reminds us Battlefront III has just as much of a vaporware history; and Sphinx797 was the best of that lot, representing Gran Turismo 5 with an extra effort to pose the skeleton. Others went the tedium route; EdificeComplex gave us Desert Bus, always an in. Eight Bit Remix had the best of the Mass Effect scanning-meme jokes. Tharien's was the best of the Mass Effect elevator riffs.

Rawksteady and shibbs capably extended the gag to movies; plasticslug stepped outside of the living room for a novel sight gag. marmathias hugged the Bitch Eat That Ho meme, and I've hugged him back for it.

As for the cream of the crop, syxx's Engineer was pure bravo, Bouchart's hit a pitch-perfect note of irony, and leetemu revealed the true character of Asshole Dog - someone who laughs at suicide. But the week's best is the first of the gallery: Skeletor kicking back, at the end of a long day, taking off his hood and seeing who's on PSN.

How can you get bored playing Team Fortress 2 or Battlefront 2? You might if you play all day, but it's pretty hard to get bored playing those games.
