Every year around this time people discuss their all time favourite Christmas films whether it be Elf or Diehard. But what about us gamers? What are our best Christmas games? Well for me there are three that spring to mind…
Minecraft – Minecraft is a classic game, one I’ve played for years and every christmas there is nothing quite like planting a spruce tree in your home and exploring your nearest snow biome. Taking a nostalgic walk through your past creations before starting a new game and getting confused by the newest update. Collecting snowballs and making a snowman and watching him throw snow at the hordes of zombies and creepers storming your base is an amazing Christmas treat.
Skyrim – Whats better at this time of year than to take a nice relaxing stroll through the snow and pine forests of Skyrim. Returning to your old homestead and spending some time with your partner and adopted children you almost forgot you have, meeting with your extended family in the Dark Brotherhood and slaying dragons and beasts on your way. Christmas is often about family and as the Dragon Born from the Thieves Guild to the Companions you certainly have a large extended family to visit!
Mario Kart – Finally I had to finish with a classic. Nothing is better than sitting round after a Christmas dinner and having a calm and peaceful race. Or rather there is nothing quite like the competitive nature of a Mario Kart tournament. A cut throat competition bringing the whole family together, so they can tear each other apart in a fit of rage. Rainbow Road anyone?
