Over my short career of writing about video games on the Internet for your enjoyment, I’ve seen a lot of odd and random fan contests paraded around social media and YouTube. This, my friends, is the strangest.
Ubisoft is giving one contest winner a trip to the Himalayas in order to play Far Cry 4 on an environmentally sound gaming device while hiking Mt. Everest. That sound you hear riding in on the wind? That’s me, chuckling like an idiot.
I received the email last night on my phone while playing a game of progressive rummy with my wife and two friends. Yeah, we’re like 90 years old, whatever. I read it to my good buddy Mike, and we just stared at each other for a hot minute before continuing with life.
This is just silliness. But, hey, it’s got me thinking about Far Cry 4, so that’s a win for Ubisoft.
But, man, what if something terrible happens to this “lucky” gamer? Hiking Everest is no joke.
