While some wishful thinkers believe Christmas and gift-giving in general are about expressing your appreciation for those nearest to you, gamers know better. Christmas is about tearing through environmentally unfriendly paper, plastic, and flesh (if necessary) for hypergrlamorized commercial electronics and games.
2012 seems to be a year especially ripe for festive software and hardware harvest, with a new console and tons of highly-anticipated titles being recently released. Assassin’s Creed 3 Hitman Absolution, and Halo 4 are just a few of them.
So, what did Santa/your parents/global megacorporations give you this year? Let us know your holiday score in the comments. But, please, just limit it to gaming. We really don’t want to know that your Uncle Roger got you another creepy calendar featuring photos of himself.
