Picture This Caption! August, 2012

#1DetroitDJ(Moderator)Posted 7/31/2012 9:03:02 PM
Last month, I gave you some pictures and asked you to come up with funny captions. This month, we'll go the other way: I'll give you some captions (video game quotes, to be specific), and it's your goal to come up with the funniest or wittiest game image for that caption.

Screenshots do not need to be from the game that the quote comes from -- they can be from any game. Screenshots can also be edited, although the bulk of the image should still be the screenshot: but you could, for example, add speech bubbles, edit two or more screenshots together, create a multi-panel screenshot comic, etc. Or, you can also just submit a screenshot that matches the quote well on its own.

There'll be two captions, and each caption will receive two winners. A third picture for one of the two captions will also be declared a winner, and all winners will receive 20 karma. You may submit up to three pictures per caption, but note you can only win once per caption.

Please upload your screenshots to Imgur or another free, secure image hosting site.

Important! Please submit your captions using the following format:

Caption #1:
Caption #2: http://thisisyourotherimage'

I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this format. You don't have to submit pictures for both captions, and you can split your entries up into more than one post if you'd like. It also doesn't matter if you have text before or after those lines -- all that matters is that your image URLs each appear on their own line, with "Caption #" and the caption number in front. I'll try to go through the thread and fix malformed entries, but I could easily miss some.

The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on Tuesday, August 14th at 11:59PM EDT. Results will be posted one week later.

With all that said, the two captions are:

Caption #1: "Ha! You fell into our trap!" (originally from X-Men: The Arcade Game)
Caption #2: "The cake is a lie." (originally from Portal)

Good luck!

So the picture has to be from GameFAQS?

No, it does not -- that's why I said you can upload it to Imgur or another image free hosting site. You can take your own screenshots if you like.

Ok, so we have 1 serious caption to picture. Got it.

Shame about #2 though.

I have an awesome idea for #1 but I can't find a good screenshot anywhere online. Guess I'll have to try to get my own one
