Grab your weighted blankets, your favorite warm beverage, and the controller of your choice because it’s the coziest season of the year. Cellophane wrapping on the ground and the new game scent in the air, millions of gamers have their patience tested by gigabyte upon gigabyte of day-one patches, and off-disk downloads.
Christmas is a magical season for all, but as gamers, we have strong memories of our favorite games tied to this Yuletide celebration. So regardless of if you’re lugging your home consoles, opting for the portable device, or staying home for the holidays, enjoy the time you have with your game of choice and have a happy holiday.
This holiday season, I’m focusing on the Spyro trilogy, Hellblade, and Death Stranding. I’ve completed the first game in the Spyro series, and I’m planning on finishing the next entry soon. Hellblade has been a surreal experience thus far. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about it soon. Death Stranding is intermediating to start, so I hope to find time in early 2020. The upcoming year is pretty top-heavy for me, so I don’t know exactly when I’ll be getting around to these things.
Enjoy every moment, and don’t forget; video games might be fun, but friends and family are important too. I write that more for myself than anybody else. Happy holidays.
