Win an NVIDIA Shield in our Father's Day Contest!


Nice!. I have been wanting a shield since they were announced!. This would make an awesome Father's day present. Good luck to the winner!.


Being a dad is prize enough. Just kidding, I would love a Shield to take out frustrations on some zombies

Because I just moved into my first home and I'm getting married soon. We don't have cable TV or enough money for a good gaming rig, so it gets very boring here. Also, I just started taking the train to work, which usually means long stretches of downtime that could be filled with an Nvidia Shield.

NVIDIA Shield is one sweet device. My dad and I have wanted one since they came out. This would make an epic Father's day!

My chance is slim to none but I have to try. If I win probably be the only fathers day present I will get. Might get me back into gaming.

My dad ia dead, my son is only 2 and it's my birthday as well, so I want this for me! I've pretty much given up gaming since the little guy came, so a good portable system would help a lot.

Just introduced my dad to the world of smartphones, and this seems to be the next logical step. He'd love this.

All my life my father has always surprised me with gifts i probably do not deserve, i was hoping that this would be a good start on being able to pay him back for how amazing he has been to me.

I just became a Father on June 11 2014 at 10:42 am and it was a babyy girl! And we are going home on sunday wich is fathers day! She is the best gift i could have ever been given EVER! A nvidea shield is just a huge bonus that would make this perfect weekend even betterr! I hopw i winnnnnn!

This in my opinion is one of the best hand held gaming systems out there and I would love a chance to win one for my dad, hes probably a bigger gamer than I am, lol.

Cool idea for a contest. I think my dad would like this, but if he doesn't I will take it.

Because this would take us back to good old childhood days only with an awesome up to date gaming system (vs Atari!) Plus I still need to buy a cool gift and not just another bad tie. Happy father's day!

This would blow my dad's mind away, he never gets anything just as it comes out and for once it would be awesome to see his look on his face when I give him something he wants.

And once again, thank you so much for the opportunity to win great stuff from AC! It's a gas to be able to enter one of these contests at least once a week!!

Just had my first child on may 19th, a beautiful little girl, this would make for a great first father's day gift!

I wanna try to get my dad to like video games it would be awesome if I would win this for him

Been wanting a shield since they were announced and then they brought portal and half-life to the system I want one even more!

I think the shield is awesome! I have been looking to get one for a while as I love the idea of remote play. Sometimes I just want to sit on my couch and play a game like borderland 2 or state of decay... and this would be perfect for that!

Since I'm currently trying to be a dad, this would make me status as the cool dad possible!!

Excellent! I would love to own a Nvidia Shield. been wanting one since it's release, couldn't bring myself to spend the money when i had 2 other tablets already.

Heard a lot of good things... but no open source development on it. I'd like to change that. (Since it may not be known here, see what else I've been working on at github.com/garwynn - should explain why I want a crack at it.)

You're never too old to play games, right ?
This would be a great Father's Day gift to myself :-)

Best of luck, everyone !

I almost never get to play games in our house because my kids are always on the Xbox. It would be great to have a Dad's Toy!

The play card would be good for my stepdad and the shield would be a good birthday gift to myself☺

My dad is always on the road, but he loves to play video games. This would make the best father's day gift!

Man, I was looking to get one of these but don't really have the cash right now. This would be a kick a$$ father's day present to me! Here's hoping I win!

I think this would make a great gift for a gamer-dad...which, coincidentally, I am!

Thanks for the opportunity!

I'm a dad of 2 and as a Father's day gift for myself I should win this cool device. Been a hard core gamer ever since! Thanks AC

This would be awesome to win! My dad's been a single parent raises three kids and always took some time to play videos games with me. Since the original Mario Bros he's been cheating to win!

I'd like to win this I'll do a video review on YouTube if I do.plus I've always wanted one.

This is what I need when my kids take my phone from me to watch YouTube and take pics.

This would be nice for when the kids take over the other gaming areas in the house.

This would make a great toy for my son and I (my daughter is still a bit you having just turned one)

Would love to win and would not let me enter comment on the other forum. Hope you consider this an entry.

Ever since I heard of the Shield, I knew I needed a separate device for gaming other than my current Android phone. Can;t wait to win this one!

Well winning would be an awesome gift! But being a father is a gift in itself. Happy fathers day to all the fathers!

This would be awesome for my friend who is a new dad and lost all time to play games. He has an awesome gaming rig but little time to go play up in his office. If he had this he might be able to squeeze a little time in before bed.

The NVIDIA Shield is an awesome device to showcase the power of NVIDIA's Tegra 4. I really would like to see on my own what NVIDIA makes possible.

This would be great father's day gift for me! I've got a 6 year old son and a 1 week old daughter.
