Ed Smith of IBTimes UK writes: "In the cynical, consumerist not-spirit of Christmas, critics everywhere have been busy this last month working on top ten lists of computer games for 2012. I've stuck my tiny, flaccid oar in as well, obviously, calling Max Payne 3 the most fun I've had all year.
Other favourites for 2012 have included Mass Effect 3, Journey and The Walking Dead, all of which have become more popular than a vibrating version of Fifty Shades of Grey.
But what about the games that don't make it onto the shelves? The games that only exist in my head because I'm bored, and tired and miserable about having to spend Christmas Day alone? Wouldn't some of those be fun to play?
Here are five Christmas games that are available to buy now in my imagination."
