The Christmas carol may say ‘tis the season to be jolly, and time off from work or school gives everyone the opportunity to catch up with friends and family. But there’s an added bonus for us gamers: it’s also a few days to rally together with our teammates, reach for the nearest controller and nail a couple of headshots before downing another mince pie.
It’s a time for curling up on the sofa with new video games from Santa, poring through the Steam catalogue for bargains (as if your backlog wasn’t big enough), having one hand on the joypad while the other is in the chocolate box – and even roping your mum into having a go on a first-person shooter (FPS) once she’s had a sherry or two.
Merry Christmas! 🎅
