Welcome to the 2000s !
Did you guys remember the panic of Y2K? :O
We are now in the new millennium! Gaming, apparently, has solidified itself from its humble roots as something more than just ‘children’s hobbies’ and more and more gamers are creating the modern gaming culture, lingo, standards, and legends. This round will be the second to last in the current themed contests, so let’s not stand on ceremonies and get right down to it!
This particular round only a very chaotic spoder is judging because the dragon has been attacked by a sudden and malicious enemy known the entire world wide as kings of monsters, the bane of humankind, the worst of all game bosses….. a.k.a “COMPUTER SAYS NO” ….!!! Oh no!
translation: his pc dieded . __ .!!!
and, that's the reason why this post has ZERO awesome gifs x__x
ANYWAY, so things are left to a spoder’s devices! :screaming emoji:

A veteran gaming author, and so it was not a surprise to me when one of his two entries got curated by OCD! And the other article? A great post about how sometimes we love terrible games XD – 2 STEEMs to @dlstudios !
@loreshapergames \o/ \o/
ALL THREE ENTRIES ARE AMAZING * ___ * Really, one of Steemit’s powerhouse authors when it comes down to gaming articles <3 The Avernum post made my day, to be honest ! – 5 STEEMs to @loreshapergames !
@kaelci \o/ \o/ \o/
New participant ! And what a splash for jumping into the fray ! Both @kaelci’s entries are INCREDIBLE, the one on Titan Quest resonated with me a lot since I actually played that game a fair bit but the original fiction @kaelci wrote on The Guild 2 is simply SPECTACULAR !!!
10 STEEMs to @kaelci !!!
…. But wait, there’s more!
To be honest, it has been VERY hard to pick the winners this round because everyone’s so awesome :3
So, a spoder has decided that in a world where authors’ earnings are reduced from before the latest HardFork, that a spoder will try to do more to ensure that quality content generators will continue to be supported :D
So here are additional prizes :D :D :D
@Rainite – 1 STEEM … for gorgeous collection of haikus! I laughed and laughed so hard~
@Faffy – 1 STEEM … absolutely incredible post! Curated by Curie! Amazing <3
@melooo182 – 1 STEEM … really cool to know there’s a modder in melo’s past :D
@zero-kaima – 1 STEEM … a very nice entry from a new participant! I hope to get to know @zero-kaima better in the future and to support them :D
@LunaticPandora – 1 STEEM … because of Discord in-joke and also thank you for entering :D
CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE <3 <3 <3
And, that concludes our presentation for @archdruid's Gaming Era 2000s contest' results!!! Again, thank you, everyone, who participated and spectated :) We hope you all had fun~ We certainly did, and we look forward to launching the next contest to celebrate the decade that was 2010 to THE PRESENT TIME in gaming!!! The funds will be transferred in the near future by @veryspider, and as usual, if there's any feedback or comments or cakes, feel free to leave your inputs in the comments section below :)
