Today’s Topic: 20 December 2017:

You’re wrapping presents while listening to cheesy festive tunes, and start to reminisce about holidays past. What’s your favourite Christmas gaming memory?


Up on the Rooftop, Reindeer paws,

Out jumps good ol’ Santa Claus,

Down through the chimney with lots of toys,

All for the little ones, Christmas Joys!


If you couldn’t tell, I would be listening to the older Christmas tunes from my childhood. I would most likely have put together a mega mix that included Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, All I want for Christmas and The Ghetto Christmas List (don’t ask lol).

One of my favorite Christmas Gaming Memories would be when we received our Sega Genesis!

Growing up, my brother and I lived with my grandmother and everyone would come over for the Holidays. My cousins loved being at our house because we always had video game systems that we could all take turns playing. One year, I remember us receiving the Sega Genesis and it was awesome! Would would go outside and play around the yard and when the sun went down it was time to game!

Some of the games we would play are Sonic games and most importantly Mortal Kombat! One Christmas we hosted a series of Mortal Kombat Tournaments in which we would play rock, paper scissors to determine which 2 gamers would start the tournament. The rules were simple, Win and you play the next challenger, Lose and you’re passing the controller to the next gamer to try their luck. I have never been a great “Fighting Game” gamer but I could luckily win a a few rounds (so I spammed kicks, I was young haha).

My favorite sequence on the controller was the infamous back, back, forward A, combination. I’m not sure what it did, but I was able to break a combo or mess someone’s face up and it was hilarious.

We would go eat snacks that my grandma would cook and that night we asked if our cousins could stay the night. We played games all night and fell asleep with the controllers in our hands! It was one of my favorite gaming memories of all time!

  1. Aw, what a great memory! 🙂
    I think my most vivid Christmas gaming memories usually involved the N64. I remember getting Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie, and Glover and just playing my little heart out. I especially love the winter levels in Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo Kazooie because of it. My mom and dad would play some of the games with me, too, so I have a lot of fond memories of that. Especially the racing games. 😛

    1. Awww that’s cute. Diddy King racing is such a great game. The N64 will always be my favorite gaming console because there’s too many memories or playing with family and friends!
