    I did the voting and at the end i got an email which said nothing about the free game. On their site they are saying that the game will be given out after the voting has ended. Then you will get the game as long as their are still supply's left. They are making you jump through a bunch of hoops and not even promising that you will get the game. Ben's ad is deceptive and doesn't tell the whole story.

    This appears to be a scam

    Maybe it is, but then they did follow through last year. Received my Steam key for Civilization V for voting that time around.

    Did you have to wait until the voting was finished before you received your Steam key?

    This isn't a scam, Green Man Gaming does a giveaway like this every year. Last year was Civilization V and Mafia 2.

    This is not a scam. A simple google search would show they have done this before. I got Mafia 2 last year. You do need to take a few steps, hardly "jumping through hoops".

    1. Create a Greenman gaming account. (if you have one skip to step 2)
    2. Create a playfire account and link to Greenman gaming
    3. Sign up to vote, make sure you use the same email as you did for Greenman gaming (very important).
    4. Link your steam account to Greenman gaming / Playfire
    5. Wait for voting to end to get free game

    Voting end at the end of October. They give away about 1 million game codes, so yes, if 1 million and 1 people sign up and you were the last one, you won't get it.

    Or you could read the rules / instructions yourself at
