I got Civ 6 for my Switch. I can't put it down. I don't get some of the negative community feedback on this - the game feels more balanced and better paced than Civ 5 by far. I actually think it's the best Civilization game I've played in a long time. The districts mechanic and holy wars are deep and add a lot to the game. The bad: road building is gone(ish), including railroads, and you can't demand an ally join you in a war even if you are the one attacked - WTF?

Overall, can't put it down.

How about you? Any new game loot this holiday?

Horizon Zero Dawn, which was amazing.

Blacks ops 4, just because to play between games, to play when misses is on the PC and it's fun to listen to frustrated people when I've dominated the game with a handgun.

Eve PSVR game, which I'm glad it was cheap. Mp is dead and there's no real sp

Tomb raider worst of the series I'm not sure why though. The upgraded mechanics were great.

Just cause and AC Odyssey which I haven't played yet.

And I've pre-ordered kingdom hearts 3

Pretty good haul. Though I play on PC mostly for a reason.

The kids all got DS for Christmas, the oldest got a new 2ds. And the 2 younger got second hand D's lites because they don't look after things yet (5 and 3). They got a like 20 games between them. If was all $50aud except for the new 2ds.

The oldest also got an mini arcade machine, it's the size of an iPad with a bunch of games.

Switch port of Katamari Damashii and Dusk on P.C. are the most unexpected games for me this holiday.

i picked up civ 6 for the pc despite the luke warm steam reviews. haven't played it yet, decided to reacquaint myself with civ 5 first which is, bar one or two shortcomings, like gaming crack. glad to hear you're enjoying it.

in addition i picked up a copy of hellblade for the ps4 which came out at the start of the month, frostpunk, shadow warrior 2 and soma for the pc. only played shadow warrior so far (i blame civ 5) but it's lots of fun

@Macutchi: yeah Civ games are awful (like crack). I really want to play Frostpunk - but I'm drowning in games now!

I finally picked up the witcher 3 and resident evil 7 can't wait to get stuck into those. Dragon Age Inquisition is taking up a lot of my time at the moment though.

Pre-ordered New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. I know people call me crazy for buying and pre-ordering an overpriced port but I never got far with it on the Wii U.

I played the original Wii game a couple of years back and loved it so I’m hoping this one’ll be good. Won’t be playing as Toadette or Penny Pincher though.

I don't often get much gaming for Christmas, I tend to purchase games when they come out (and none come out on Christmas Day ;) )

However, my girlfriend's parents got me this:

I also treated myself to a new Razer headset and debating upgrading to the Elite Xbox Controller as I had some cash off my old man. Otherwise, my 6 week old daughter got all the attention haha.

I recently picked up COD advanced warfare. I see it for dirt cheap so Picked it up. I usually pick them up cheap and run through the story.

Well, I got my brother Call of Duty Black Ops. 4. I got a couple of gift cards, but I used them for the new Smash Bros. game, along with a Gamecube controller for the switch, by PowerA. I haven't play the game much. I have been playing a whole bunch of old school games for my classic PC I built, last year.

I got cash which I spent in the Steam sale, I can't remember which games but in my opinion I think that counts. I think cash is the best gift a person can get!
