so is it over? If not, I'm for a PS3 copy so I can fill someone's house with Lava.

I should win a copy of Terraria on the Xbox 360 because I'm a big fan  of Gamespot and Fuse (you can call me a GS fanboy, I won't be offended), since I signed in in 2007 Gamespot has been the first site I open when I fire up my browser. Terraria would be perfect to play with my friends but I have no money to buy it now since I'm paying for college, that's why I would be really honored to receive it from my favorite gaming site.

I should win a 360 copy of Terraria because I'm a poor college student.

I should win a copy of Terraria for the PS3 so I can have something to play with my son when he is old enough. Also, who doesn't want a free game?

I'd like a copy of Terraria for the PS3 because my bluray reader is broken, and I can only play digital copies of games. I've played the PC version for some time now, but I want to play the console version so I can experience all the exclusives it has to offer.

I never got to play castle of illusion, I did get to play world of illusion and loved that game. I had hopes that it might someday get a re-release on the markets for either the 3DS or ps3/xbox. I also waiting for Dragons Crown, I'll have to play it by Vita since I'm saving for another ps3 atm. Hope it looks just as good on that.

Ruiner64 is a lucky person. :) Congrats to that user.
As for Terraria, I've seen gameplay of it and I think it's great game that I'd love to get the chance to play. I'd love to win a copy of the game so that I can play it with friends. Xbox please. Totally wished that Synthia had this for xbox to, if I happened to win, maybe we could play since I missed the game nights she had set up.

I would like to win a copy of Terraria for the PS3 because my friends and I love to play local multiplayer games together. The further console generations advance it seems it is harder to find a good local multiplayer experience, and Terraria looks like an amazing game that my friends and I would put tons of hours into.

 I think I should be chosen to win a copy of Terraria for the PS3 because I didn't have the chance to buy it for PC and neither for my PS3 but I played the demo on the console and it looks amazing.

I should be chosen because I need some good news and this would be great news.  I would love a Xbox 360 copy (but also have Ps3 if can be considered for both). Thanks for the chance!

I should be chosen to win a copy of Terraria for Xbox360 because I have actually never played it before. It's been a game that I have had my eyes on since it came out on PC but have yet to experience it :(. You can check my gamer tags and Steam profile in my Gamespot profile if you don't believe me (shocking, I know!) :). I'm also proud to say that I have been a Gamespot member for over 11 years now (I feel old now lol). Thank you Gamespot for giving us a chance to win a copy, you guys are awesome :). Good luck everyone!
