It’s that time of year again! The decorations are out, the house smells of Christmas thanks to the tree in the living room, presents are sitting under the tree and all the good food is on the table. We do love Christmas at DDNet, and as always, we’re doing an advent calendar of our own on the site. Each day we’re going to list one game that’s just perfect to play over the Christmas season, so be sure to check back each day to get all the gaming suggestions you’ll need for the season.
Sonic Forces isn’t exactly the Generations 2 some had hoped for, but it does bring a certain brand of nonsensical fun that goes down well at Christmas. It’s nice to have a stylish, refreshingly brief adventure that never overstays its welcome. Blazing through gorgeous scenery at high speeds set to such songs as, well, this is a recipe for a good time. The cherry on top is the character customisation screen, which boasts everything from goofy beanies to a Persona 5 crossover mask. You can even throw on a seasonal elf costume, which I am using as not so thinly veiled justification for putting two Sonic games on the list this year.
