You ate too much, survived the family line, and opened the present. All you have to do is play a game full of Christmas cheers. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top 10 Christmas video games. Each game brings only a small part of the festival.
Of course, if you’re not celebrating Christmas or need a break from Christmas, these are definitely great games.
The frozen land of Skyrim is waiting for you. It’s full of adventure, beautiful scenery, and dragons. One of the great things about the Elder Scrolls series is that you can modify it to your heart’s content. For example, you can enjoy Saturnalia, a mod that is now in the Creation Club. This brings a festive feast day.
Arkham Origins is the first part of another Arkham series, showing that Batman first met many of his rogue galleries. Set during Gotham’s Christmas snowstorm (and the waves of crime), it’s the perfect pickup for the days spent over-indulging.
Dota 2 hosts Frostivus every year. This is a celebration of everything being frozen, and this year is no exception. Frostivus, which typically kicks off in mid-December, adds a festive spin to MOBA Jaguar notes, offering new rewards and festive fun. However, Frostivus can also be interrupted by Greevils, and I’m still not sure if that’s the case. This is the dark year of 2020.
Christmas is part of generosity, and Hitman 2 is incredibly generous. Not only can you get the game, but you can add all the content of IO Interactive later. If you own the original Hitman, you can play all levels of the Brand Spanking Hitman 2 Vision. Agent 47 is also generous in his mistakes, giving his all targets a gift of death. What a festival.
Shenmue has some Japanese towns that you can explore with great care, some of which are weather and season. As the game flows into the winter, you’ll see snow infiltrate the world and Santa Claus figures roaming around. Sure, Santa Maeno usually advertises shops, but buying things is also part of Christmas!
Take a short break on a snowboard, paraglider, wingsuit, or ski. The rush is your dream alpine holiday, and better, you don’t have to be cold to experience it. Do crazy stunts and beat your friends’ time on the slopes. It’s all part of your Christmas holiday.
When it comes to cold, our solar system is a little colder than the surface of Europa. Destiny 2: Beyond Light takes players to the frozen frontier of this icy moon to fight the corrupt at the edge of human existence. With lots of new content to explore and lots of exotic gear, Destiny 2: Beyond Light may be the time sync for video games you’ll need during Christmas.
Quiet, alone on the Himalayan mountainside, searching for treasures, tombs and relics. Rise of the Tomb Raider is the sequel to 2012’s groundbreaking Tomb Raider restart and has been improved in every way. Especially the joy is to explore the frozen areas of the mountainous areas as you fight the dark forces of the roofs of the world.
World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft explodes every December to celebrate the winter veil. New quests, ubiquitous decorations, and even gifts to open on Christmas Day make this a great time to play. Recent expansions of Shadowlands have introduced a number of new players. This Winter Veil should be an unforgettable December.
The list ends with a classic. Xmas Lemmings dates back to 1991, each featuring a new level for unfortunate Christmas-themed creatures. With up to 32 levels of Christmas fun and frustration, depending on the version you play, Xmas Lemmings is the perfect sock stuffing for everyone.
