Have a very brainy Christmas

2 mins read

It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.

As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.

Day 23: Football Manager 2024

Read our review here.

It wouldn’t be a DDNet advent calendar without us recommending the annual edition of the Football Manager series. There is a good reason for it, though! If you’re going to spend 5396243972 hours looking at spreadsheets and numbers, it may as well be the one time in the year that you’re not doing that for work.

Football Manager does have an extra feature that helps to elevate it this year – the J-League is finally there, so you can finally take control of the best club of all, Kawasaki Frontale, and spend those 5396243972 hours during your Christmas break managing that team. It really is amazing just how compelling this series manages to be.
