Christmas is almost here again, and what better way to celebrate it than with festive themed videogames? Last year I composed a small list of holiday favourites, which today returns bigger and better than before with five additional recommendations. Here’s my list of games that are perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit, 2014 edition.
Back in 1999 Sega spent $47 million making Shenmue, and looking back this was arguably money well spent. It’s a shame we don’t currently see that amount of cash being funnelled into games that are equally ambitious and innovative, but Shenmue walks a dangerous line and I can see why others have been unwilling to follow. It’s too advanced for it’s own good, and because of this remains an utterly unique and compelling experience today.
