Top 5 Worst Christmas-Themed Video Games

1UP Writes:
Though the goal of most major developers remains the soulless, seasonal blockbuster, we can at least be happy about one thing: The Christmas-themed videogame is a rare beast. To date, there's only been one example of a good game: Christmas Nights -- but that was a free, reskinned demo of an already great game. And they're few in number for a good reason; they may seem like a novel idea as a holiday gift, but they only serve to remind the unlucky gamer that every day he or she is playing it -- barring the first, of course -- is clearly not the wonderful, loot-friendly holiday known as Christmas. Oh, right -- and they usually suck eggnog.

The story is too old to be commented.

Elf Bowling was freaking great, went downhill from EB3 though.

Anyone ever play The Grinch on PS1? I freakin' love that game! I still have it.

James Pond II- Robocod was set at Santa's toy factory and got 90%+ reiews. Christmas Lemmings was also highly rated. So Christmas Nights is not the only good Christmas themed game.

As a kid, I remember playing that on my old Power Mac 6100. 66Mhz of fierce 2D gaming power mixed with a then-unheard-of 16MB RAM!!!


But yeah, every game on that list blows dogs for quarters. And they went ahead and released Elf Bowling: The movie?....I think they had to make some kind of UN pact or something that declared it only fit for torturing terrorists and summoning hellspawn.
