As has become an annual tradition at DDNet, we are here to help you count down towards Christmas! One new game every day for the 24 days from December 1 to Christmas Eve. Think of it as a kind of Advent Calendar, if you will, giving you new tips and ideas for games to pick up and play at that rare time of year where everyone does have a little more time to indulge their favourite hobbies.
I don’t necessarily think that Monster Train: First Class is the best game out there. However, it is a perfect Christmas game because it perfectly slots in with the way Christmasses go for most of us. When we have to entertain the kids of our siblings (and yes that’s a chore and I won’t hear arguments to the contrary), or attend family functions, travel for the sake of parties and work overtime to get everything done before the break, we don’t always have time to sit down with a 50-hour JRPG.
