Christmas is a big production, but they don't roll credits at the end of it. Still, with the home a wasteland of gift wrap and packaging, and the light slowly receding outside, it's a good moment to reflect on 2009.
This past week Kotaku recapped the year that was in video games, on subjects both naughty and nice. And before we know it, seven days will have passed, and we'll all begin working on another 365-chapter story of video games, how they're made, and who plays them.
For now, we invite you to revisit these retrospectives. And we thank you for choosing to spend a part of this holiday with Kotaku. From all of us, happy holidays, and a very merry Christmas to you.
