Hive Gaming Community Contest #1 - How would you create the perfect video game?

Hello gamers! It's been a while since we've arranged any activities within the community. We've been doing some brainstorming behind the scenes and in the process we managed to come up with something we hope and think will be fun for both writers and readers.

Starting this week we're gonna be delivering weekly or bi-weekly activities for you all to enjoy and partake in. This can be in the form of blogging challenges, writing prompts or contests. Our goal is to drive engagement within the community, diversify content and for you all to produce some top notch quality original content!

Each kind of challenge, prompt or contest will be focused on you as a gamer. We want you all to tell us about or show us YOUR experiences in the world(s) of gaming.


Writing prompt #1

Prompt: How would YOU create the perfect video game?

This will be an interesting one. We have a lot of members in this community with a lot of different tastes and preferences. Some might prefer to spend their time playing shooters, some might play MMOs and others might stick fully to retro games. No matter what kind of gamer you are I'm sure this weeks theme has crossed your mind.

Imagine you've been given full creative freedom. The budget is unlimited. Whatever you want for your game you will get. No wish is to big. Will it be the most realistic simulator ever? Will it be something out of Ready Player One? Will it be something simple?

What's in it for you?

Will there be rewards? Yes, and no. As with every post in the community entries will be eligible for curation. Curation is in no way guaranteed just by entering. Posts will still have to be of quality and be made with an effort. All entries must be your own original content. As always, engagement both inside and outside of the community will also be considered. Any attempts to partake just for curation rewards are easily recognizable and will be ignored.

In addition, all the rewards (100%) of this post will be used in the prize pool which means the winners will receive:

1st Place: 35% of the rewards of this post + 5 HIVE
2nd Place: 25% of the rewards of this post + 3 HIVE
3rd Place: 20% of the rewards of this post + 2 HIVE
4th Place: 10% of the rewards of this post
5th Place: 10% of the rewards of this post

How to take part:

  1. Brainstorm.

  2. Write a post in the Hive Gaming Community describing how you would create the perfect video game.

  3. Your post must include reasoning and argumentation based on your choices.

  4. Use some inspirational photos to visualize your wishes.

  5. Create an unique title for your post! Do NOT include the word "contest" or anything linking it to this initiative in the title.

  6. Tag your post with #MyPerfectVideoGame

  7. Leave a link to your post in the comments to this post.

All of the above must be fulfilled for your post to be considered for curation and entry.

Extra notes!

  • Only one submission per user. Extra submissions will be ignored for both curation and entry. We will always consider your first submission as part of the contest.
  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any way or form. If you're not able to create your own work I would advise you not to enter. All entries will be checked and anyone found plagiarizing or stealing content from any source will be disqualified and muted/blacklisted from the community. It's simply not worth it.

Entry will be closed when this post pays out, one week from now. You can still choose to make your post after this happens but that means you won't be considered for the prizes. Might still get curated though!

We're looking forward to seeing all your awesome and creative entries!
