It’s Creative Christmas Day 2!!! This is helping me really get in the Christmas spirit!
You’re wrapping presents while listening to cheesy festive tunes, and start to reminisce about holidays past. What’s your favourite Christmas gaming memory?
Back a good few years ago when the Wii was still relatively new my mum, dad, sister, Nan and I were all playing the bowling game on Wii Sports while eating Christmassy snacks (Roses chocolates, mince pies… the works), laughing when someone made a terrible shot and booing because my sister had figured out the perfect place to stand and kept getting strikes. It’s a particularly prominent memory because it was so weird to see my Nan playing a video game (the same Nan who silently watched me play Dead Island for two hours before finally declaring “this movie’s a bit slow isn’t it?”), and it’s very rare to find something that all of us enjoy doing. It’s probably the only time that video games have featured as a family memory for me (as in the whole family, I have plenty of memories of them with my dad and sister but not so much my mum and Nan).
