2 mins read
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.

 The 24 Games Of Christmas
Day #1: Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games

Local multiplayer games don’t always need to be about being the most complex, the most in-depth, or the most rewarding. A good multiplayer games is one that players of all ages, whether 5 or 80, can sit down together and have a laugh. 
Local multiplayer games are the perfect Christmas purchase because there are going to be lots of parties and social time, and not everyone will be a serious gamer. Which is why Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games is so perfect; it’s a game that everyone can have fun with. 
Sitting down with beers and chips and waggling a Wiimote like a madman is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours, and the natural competitiveness of Olympic events will have people cheering and cursing. Loudly. You might not play this again once the New Year starts, but for the month leading up to Christmas, consider this essential.
