Max Payne Screenshot Contest

Back in September, we ran a Max Payne screenshot contest.  We have chosen the winners, and are presenting them on this page.  We were looking for entries in three categories:

  • Action -- Looking for a shot that shows cool action, maybe a gunfight or an explosion, etc. This shot might show slow motion action, and might include bullets caught in flight (either from Max's weapon, or heading toward Max, or both).

  • Cool moves -- This show shows Max and/or other characters involved in a John Woo-style move, evading danger or upholding the law with lead teeth.

  • Humor -- This is a shot that is in some way funny or unexpected. We'll leave it at that!

We pored through the numerous submissions, and have chosen three winners in each of the categories.  Here are the winners - you can click on any of the thumbnails for a larger photo (these aren't in any order):

Action Winner #1 Action Winner #2 Action Winner #3


Cool Moves Winner #1 Cool Moves Winner #2 Cool Moves Winner #3


Funny Winner #1 Funny Winner #2 Funny Winner #3

These are the nine winning screenshots.  There was a problem with picking them which caused a delay in them being posted.  The story from our webmaster..  "We had just got done through picking the winners, when I suffered a catastrophic mail loss on my computer that I was unable to recover from (my previous backup was Aug 22nd).  How does this affect the screenshot contest? Well, I had all the entries in a secure area on the web site for Remedy to view them, but after I did that, I lost all my mail, which means that I have no idea who did any of them anymore.

What we need now is for the winners of these nine screenshots to contact us regarding their entry.  At that point we'll be able to work out how and where to send prizes to.   We'd appreciate it if those involved can contact us ASAP - we're very sorry for the problems."

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest - there were lot of good ones in there, and it was pretty hard to pick.
