The Edge Games of Christmas

Edge Staff:

Videogames and Christmas are indelibly linked, and we rather hope they will be forever. Much of that is due to this industry’s historic obsession with the final three months of the year; while release schedules are doubtless better spread out these days, big-budget development is still all about Q4. For most of us, of course, business considerations don’t come into it, and never did; there’s just nothing quite like a great game on a cold winter’s day, and if you’ve spent days or weeks looking forward to it, poring over magazine previews while eagerly eyeing the suspiciously sized present under the tree then so much the better. As such, if you love games, chances are there’s one in particular that you will forever associate with Christmas Day. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably got many more than that. Here, staff and contributors share their own favourite memories of videogames at Christmas. We encourage you to do the same in the comments. (Animal Crossing, Diddy Kong Racing, Fable 2, Fire Emblem , Goldeneye 007, Retro, Shenmue, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, Wii, Xbox 360)
