As people around the world fill garbage cans and dumpsters with discarded bits of colorful paper, we take a look back at the wonderful things we gave and got during the 2015 holiday season. In other words, what’d ya get? I’ll go first.
Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends. But when you get bored of those family and friends, why not play some video games?
In Fallout 4, not only is Santa Claus real, he wears a damn Power Armor suit. Because of course he does.
If you’re thinking of giving someone an Xbox, PlayStation, Wii U, 3DS, Vita, or iPad this Christmas, there’s something you can do to sweeten the deal even more for the recipient: download every update for the console first.
As many of us get excited to find brand new games under our trees this weekend, it’s worth looking back at what happened last year, when some jerks tried to ruin Christmas for everyone.
If you thought waking up on Christmas morning to above-average temperatures and no snow on the ground was scary, Boston Dynamics gives us a far more terrifying glimpse into a dystopian future where Santa’s reindeer have been replaced with (highly kickable) trotting robotic dogs.
Last week I tasked our lovely community with dressing up their favorite video game images for the holidays. There are many wonderful entries besides Christmas Tree Pyramid Head, but come on—it’s Christmas Tree Pyramid Head.
Thanksgiving is over, and you all know what comes next—a Photoshop contest involving decorating your favorite gaming images for Christmas.
A mysterious Christmas gift. A disappointed-looking man. These were the gifts I gave our image manipulating community last week. What they've given us is in return is pure holiday magic.

The only thing more fun than receiving holiday gifts is... I'm going to go with giving them here, for the sake of not sounding like a monster. But a close second is telling everybody about the presents you secured during the winter festivities. I'll go first!
'tis the season, and Kickstarter's game dev community is making sure none of us forget it. In the past weeks, they've been sending out holiday wishes with their project updates, sometimes including some rather nice art.
On Christmas Day one of my traditions that helps me to get in the spirit of the season is listening to Christmas songs, and last year I shared with you all a wonderful collection of Reggae Christmas songs. This year I decided to try my best and listen to all the Christmas-y songs in the world of Video Games.
So you pulled out the big guns and you got your son (age 27 or otherwise) a console. You're justifiably excited about the Christmas morning surprise, but there's one thing you must absolutely remember to take care of before you wrap that gadget gift: Update the firmware. Trust us.
This is incredibly cool. Also, given the Internet's proclivity for dousing good intentions in gasoline and setting them on the troll-iest of fires, a little bit crazy.
How do you celebrate Christmas the GTA way? In a word: murder.
Well, it's about that time of year when you get to see a lot of your family. Your virtual family, that is. Despite The Sims 4's many warm and fuzzy qualities, though, the game doesn't come with a ton of stuff to help put you in the mood for the holidays. Modders to the rescue!
Just because not everyone celebrates Christmas doesn't mean Christmas can't come to everybody. Even the NPCs in Skyrim.
