Your Yuletide Game of Choice?

Postby Prey » Mon Dec 18, 2017 2:20 pm

I was wondering if like myself any of you guys have a tradition of playing a Christmas/Winter themed games during the festive period and if so what is it?

My first current game of choice is - Batman: Arkham Oranges which for me not only features the perfect Christmas setting but I also get to beat up the always naughty list present Deathstroke.

What's on your Yuletide gaming list?

One is Mafia 2 I think, when it's dark and snowing driving around with christmas songs on the car radio.

Or The Division, when it's quiet (a nice early morning, late night type of quiet) and you're trudging through snow with the Christmas decorations up.

I don't really have a set Christmas game to be honest, I'll probably muck around a bit with whatever I pick up in the Steam winter sale (if anything, though I've a fair amount on my wish-list awaiting a decent discount).

I must play Arkham Oranges at some point. I've only played Asylum & City so far.

I don't have any Christmas-themed games I play, but I've spent several Christmases playing Dragon Age: Origins and it's become a thing. It's not as though I feel a need to play it at Christmas, more that I now associate it with festive gaming.

I was a big fan of playing Christmas Nights on the Saturn back in the day and Xmas Lemmings before that.





Now I just rock silently back and forth in the dark until its all over.

I've got it (came free with a gfx card at some point I think), but I've barely even touched it to be honest. For some reason it didn't really click with me, while I loved Asylum and City, not sure why. I must give it another try at some point.

I've read that it's basically Arkham City with a few bells & whistles. I can see how it might seem a bit samey after playing City.

I might pick it up for a fiver over christmas if it's on a deal.

When I had school and university Christmas holidays I used to make it a tradition of replaying Final Fantasy 7 or 9 each year. That's about it, I don't do it anymore due to never really being around much during the holidays. If I get a chance to play anything at all over the next couple of weeks it'll just be trying to clear backlogged games.

this thread got me thinking and ive decided that it was a toss up between the following:

Fallout 4
Mad Max
Assassins creed Origins

on reflection i cant be arsed with the plastic faced Fallout 4 replay - maybe do that another day, Mad Max really tempted me seriously tempted me after watching the film the other night, so i put the last two to a odds/evens dice roll best of 3. Ass Creed won.

It better be good.

I used to love playing the original Mafia and original Ghost Recon over the holidays, also the snow maps of COD 1 and 2 multiplayer, especially the train yard. Now it is whatever is currently installed, namely, Mafia 3 and Wolfenstein TNC.
