Christmas is on the way! It’s time to adorn the tree with dazzling lights, bust out the obligatory TV specials, and gobble festive treats faster than the chef in your family can put them down. More importantly, it’s a precious opportunity to ditch your routine and bask in the company of those you hold dearest.
There might not be snow banks to leap into depending on your geographic coordinates, but video games under a blanket can provide fun with 100 per cent less mess (barring severe eggnog mishaps). It wouldn’t be Christmas at DDNet without our requisite list of games to keep you warm and cozy for the holidays. Each day until Christmas, we’ll highlight a title that’s perfect for passing the time, bonding with friends, or stuffing in your buddy’s stocking.
Join us on this 24 day adventure as we count down to the most wonderful time of the year. Merry Christmas!
Game #2: The World Ends With You: Final Remix
We’ve always recommended that people play JRPGs at Christmas due to the extra time that the holiday season affords. The bitter reality is that you’re never going to beat every game in your backlog unless you discover 25 o’clock. If you only have time to play one JRPG from start to finish, let it be The World Ends With You. Despite being pleasantly brief in the face of productivity vampires like Xenoblade 2, TWEWY is an experience that will stay with you forever. Indeed, this game I purchased on a whim in 2008 has etched itself into the fabric of my soul with its surprisingly heavy themes and unforgettable soundtrack. Is Christmas not the best time for precious memories? Don’t waste precious hours picking between the Switch, iPhone, and Nintendo DS versions. Grab whichever you can and discover why this one is such a classic.
