In order to boost GameFAQs' review section and include as many reviews as possible, it was time to add some incentives. From Midnight, August 1st, 1999 to 11:59:59PM August 31st, 1999, there was a race to see who could submit the most reviews.

Of course, submitting reviews for games that had already been reviewed to death (i.e. Zelda) will cost you. On the other hand, submitting an extra-long review for a brand new Japanese game nobody's ever reviewed before will net you a ton of points (specifically, 12.5).

So, who won?

  1. Top Three Point Totals: This one was decided after just a couple of weeks: GlucoseJoe, Dingo Jellybean, and Hiryuu swept the field.
  2. Three semi-random winners: The three winners (and their odds of winning, based on their point totals) were: Blackjack4x (5.08%), TenshiNoShi (3.92%), and Takezo (0.26%).
  3. Three fully-random winners: The purely lucky winners were: Truegamer, Faust, and PHarris
