The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #10: Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland

The tree is up, the lights are on, the stockings are over the fireplace and everyone's getting into the eggnog. It's Christmas and it's the best time of year.

Nothing beats Christmas; it's the time for fun and play, for family and friends. It's the chance to get away from work and reset the batteries. And, of course, it's the perfect time to knock off some of those games that you just haven't been able to get around to.

As is tradition for Digitally Downloaded we're going to count down the 24 games of Christmas - one a day for each day from December 1 through to December 24. The fun, the silly and the crazy, these games have been custom picked by the DDNet editorial team to give you plenty of ideas for stocking fillers, games to play with family and friends on Christmas Eve, or games you should use the extra time over the holiday to get stuck into.

Day #10: Atelier Meruru Plus: The Apprentice of Arland

You didn't seriously think we would make a list of game suggestions without mentioning Atelier Meruru, did you?

Meruru makes any gaming time more fun. On top of a wonderfully rich gameplay structure is a charming story and endlessly endearing characters. It's the kind of game that you'll kick back with and wear a big old grin on your face as you play.

Christmas isn't the time of year for extreme bloodshed and cursing at one another over the voice chat in FPS lobbies. I know there are a lot of people that do that, but for us the spirit of the season demands that we play more innocent and fun games and simply enjoy the entertainment that games bring us. Meruru represents that vision near-perfectly.
