Video game releases tend to slow down in December, but there were still plenty of ones to love. Here are our favorite games from December.
It’s been ages since we got a big winter sports sim, and Steep scratched that itch nicely.
Hearthstone Mean Streets of Gadgetzan
We enjoyed the distinct style and mood of Heathstone’s latest expansion.
You can get the expansion for PC.
The Last Guardian
We thought it would never come out, but then it did come out, and you can watch Trico poop. We loved this beautiful tale of camaraderie between two unlikely companions.
You can get the game for PS4.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
This game was an unexpected stealth gem where the most fun comes from making your characters work together.
You can get the game for PC, Mac, and Linux.
Frog Fractions 2

Super Mario Run
This mobile game feels like a Mario game, and it’s great for gaming in short doses.
You can get the game for iOS, with an Android build coming in the future.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
The first two episodes of Season 3 of Telltale’s episodic zombie feelings game is tense, solid, and off to a great start.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
The fourth installment in this series has gorgeous visuals, rich music, and varied, silky gameplay.
This early access survival game will kill you in all the best ways.
Forza Blizzard Mountain Expansion
Forza Horizon 3's wintry expansion is almost too real.
You can get the expansion for PC and Xbox One.
This indie game knew our names, somehow.

Let It Die
This free game is fun but clunky.
