Hello and welcome to the 53rd edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winners of the previous contest! Timmy Jim's strength cape flex emote in , and Robotnik's bucket of chicken proposition in tied with 11 votes apiece:

Last week's winning screenshot one

Last week's winning screenshot two

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question, but please take note of the following:

  • One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please!
  • Limited picture modifications are allowed, such as cropping, simple filters, and blurring of identifying info such as names, but not adding other images or text.
  • To ensure a fair playing field, please post screenshots you've taken yourself rather than ones you found online.
  • Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here.

Also, try to avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

How long will the contest run?

We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2021-12-07, then have a second week-long period where only voting will be accepted. This is to give every submission, even those posted at the end of the first week, a chance to be voted on by everyone.

After the end of the second week, at 19:00 UTC of 2021-12-14, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured for a week on the main site's photo widget.

No Theme

No theme this week, post your best (or worst) screenshots!

As a reminder, we're always accepting suggestions for themed weeks, and have compiled that suggestion process into a question of its own.

    It's such a shame, this game is relatively pretty to look at but the gameplay just didn't do it for me :\ Commented Dec 3, 2021 at 14:51
  • @Kaizerwolf “pretty” Commented Dec 5, 2021 at 2:20
  • @Wondercricket you sneaky beaky Commented Dec 5, 2021 at 18:05
  • @Kaizerwolf For me this game was actually a hidden gem. Of cause gameplay is repetitive just like for every other open world game. But the story is very satisfying and surprisingly long. There are bunch of interesting NPCs in the 2nd half of the game. Also leveling up feels rewarding: both skills and available weapons change gameplay completely. I definitely recommend this game, maybe you can try the easiest difficulty just to breeze through the story once.

The 'good' ending of

Sonic 1 end screen

  • Been a while since I've played Sonic 1. I've been delving into some old favourites via the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classics pack on Steam. (I've also just noticed the scanlines playing up a bit when shrunk by SE, open the full screenshot for the correct pattern)

My new pal Chomper in
He seems a bit "on edge" when you first meet him - He's had a hard life. Just don't touch his face - he doesn't like that.
