Games you don't want to wake up to on Christmas morning

GamerZines writes:

Christmas is a time for giving. So when you wake up on Christmas morning, you fully expect to be given a handful of the latest and greatest games you've asked for. But what happens when it all goes wrong? Mum's picked up last year's Call of Duty thinking it was Black Ops, Nan's bought you the Medal of Honor book rather than the game, and well, Dad's too busy getting merry in the armchair to really care.

If you wake up to these this Christmas, you're in for a big surprise. (Clash of the Titans, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Kinect Motion Sports, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Nintendo DS, Prison Break: The Conspiracy, PS3, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Wii, Xbox 360)

I don't think I'd want to wake up to a CoD game at all...

Me neither, but 7million other people would.

Um I'm not gonna wake up to any games on Xmas morning, I'm gonna be gaming all night (LAN PARTY) so I most likely wont wake up till noon, then I'm a want some food.

If I don't see Half Life 2 ep3 downloading in my steam folder then in reality it wont be Xmas.

enjoy your Kinects, Moves, COD, socks, ugly sweaters and gift cards tomorrow.

lordkemp007 from Scotland wishes all gamers from around the world a very happy and merry Christmas.

Here's hoping tomorrow you wake up on Crimble morning and Santa has delivered your gaming Christmas wishes.

Call of Duty or Crackdown 2. Crackdown 2 is one of the worst games I've played this generation.

just be grateful for someone thinking enough to buy you a present...
nothing worse than an ungrateful kid

That comment just shut this article and entire comment section down. Well said.

COD: Black ops, I seriously hated the small time I borrowed that game.

Alpha Protocol.........

I thought Alpha Protocol was a fairly good game. I enjoyed playing it, but it does have a few faults. I have seen many more worse games than Alpha Protocol, there are also many better games.

I'd be ecstatic to wake up to a DSi.

I'd have to say, waking up to Madden could be the pits.

I know what I won't be waking up to on Christmas morning... PS Move. :(

Waking up to any product that is endorsed or supported by Microsoft and/or Xbox 360 would shatter Dark Sniper's dreams. Finding an Xbox 360 under the Christmas tree would be an absolute nightmare for him.

I missed you :)

Waking up to anything Microsoft tomorrow is going back to the store. I don't care who it's :)

I think a DSi is the most accurate thing on the list. You get one of those now, you'd better hope they kept a gift receipt.

i dont remember when was the last time i got a game for xmas, i just buy my own dam games.

I think Enslaved would be the worst game under this years tree.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1800d ago
A Dark Void under the tree can only mean bad times ahead.
Luckily we rented it but the bad times followed anyways
If a Dark Void is placed near lights(tree lights) they will go out,flickering madly at first.
Some WKC2 would rule though,even if from the future.
