Question Do you have any fav christmas-time game?

I have found myself playing these games often (for years ) when christmas is approaching:

Pinball Wizard
Pinball Dreams

So it's sorta pinbally-themed for me!
Have you got this odd habit yourself? share it here

It's kinda become a tradition for me to play a game of Karian Cross on Christmas morning. Not really sure how it started, and it's going nothing to do with Christmas at all, but I keep it up

I wouldn't say games, but for some reason, the Wii actually gets switched on and used!

Thunderblade and Wonderboy 3, the dragons trap (SMS).
Both were "wait half a year for the new game" presents I got on Christmas morning and spent the holidays playing.

I also get christmassy feelings from the smell of burnt plaster.
Some asshole burnt the bottom apartment in our complex on the 23rd so I spent the weekend in that smell when I was 7.

Probably should see some psychologist about that...

Don't really have any favourite Christmas games, however I often do find myself playing a few of those small Christmas 'bonus' releases around this time of year... you know, like the Christmas episodes of Jazz Jackrabbit, the Christmas themed Lemmings ones and such.

christmas demo of Theme Park (even though on my OCS A500 the background in this game was seriously fudged up), christmas episode of JJR, Christmas world of Banjo Tooie is also quite good basically anything with:

- the bright red, green and gold colors of christmas decorations and lights
- christmas tunes

Speaking of which, time to get the decorations out again I'd say! And perhaps shop for a few new ones.

Here are seven great Amiga Christmas games to try out, maybe you'll find a new favourite!

They are the entries for last year's Festive Game Making Competition. Don't forget to check out this year's competition and have a go if you have some time!

Cool, this was the first game on my mind when I saw the thread. I always get christmas feelings when I hear of Robocod. I used to play it during christmas and it got this christmas feeling also.

Gran turismo hd on the ps3 is basically one of the best freebies ever, I played it all christmas a few years ago, trying to get onto the worldwide top ten rankings, now when I hear that electro jazz theme it makes me feel all festive!

Link down for the moment. These strange "traditions" creep up on you don't they?

These for memories, probably 93 Christmas. Premier Manager 1, Bobs Bad Day.

Even bigger memories with Putty & Cannon Fodder. They just have to get played at Christmas.
