The 10 Merriest Santa Claus Cameos in Videogame History

Dorkly: "You better not pout, you better not cry, you better watch out, I'm tellin' you why: Santa Claus is comin' to town." – Old Klingon Proverb

The original morality motivator – way before Bioware got their grubby fingers all over it – was Santa Claus. If you were good, you were rewarded. If you were bad, you weren't (well, at least in theory. Reality: if your parents have money, you get good stuff. If not, you are consumed by a guilt complex that assumes a bearded man in the North Pole has judged you unworthy of gifts). So – it makes sense he would pop up every now and then in videogames. And here are the 10 merriest cameos by Ol' Saint Nick in videogame history. (Culture, Shenmue, The Sims 2, ToeJam & Earl, World of Warcraft)

I love this game series. Great multiplat action RPG dungeon crawler title on PSN/XBL. Funny and gorgeous and epic!
