For this week’s Free Game Friday we have no less than seven games to give away as a bumper prize bonanza. As good things quite often come in seven, it got me thinking about the seven wonders of the world and, more specifically, how they are all starting to look pretty dated. I mean, come on, how useful is a giant pyramid these days? Can it run Crysis 2? I think not.. And the hanging gardens of Babylon? My mum has a hanging basket at the front of her house, and I know for a fact that it doesn’t have WiFi, so what’s the point?
Anyway, it’s because of this thinking that I’ve decided we need to set the record straight and announce the real seven wonders of the world. No, I don’t think we need to include tall buildings, long bridges or, I don’t know, boats (or something), we need to select 7 technological wonders of the world that have had a real effect on our lives. Things that we seriously couldn’t live without, that are truly wonders of our world.
So, we are giving away a bundle of seven games in this week’s competition. To enter, simply answer the following question and we’ll choose someone at random
So here’s the question: What in your opinion should be selected to be in the Seven Wonders of the Tech World? What I’m looking for is your thoughts on a piece of technology that is around today that has really had a significant impact in our everyday lives, or is simply stupidly impressive. This can be anything from a mobile phone to space rockets, but I’d like to know which item specifically, no generalisations please.
There it is, let me know what you’d like to see in the Seven Technological Wonders of the World in the comments below and, if picked, you’ll win a copy of Shogun Total War 2, Crysis 2, Stalker: Call of Pripyat, Dirt 2, Lost Planet 2, Operation Flashpoint Red River and Medal of Honor. That’s a game per wonder, can’t really say fairer than that, can you?
The winner will be announced on Friday and the Seven Wonders of the World will be announced next week, so get going and best of luck!
