Merry Christmas and happy holidays, fine ladies and gents of GamerSushi. Another year has come and gone, which brings us back to our annual tradition of posting all of our loot on Christmas Day. Like RPG adventurers, many of us have braved the dungeons of relatives’ homes, slayed the boss monsters of awkward family dinners and plumbed the depths of bow-topped expert chests in order to get our prizes, so I think it’s appropriate that everyone flaunts it.
If there was any Christmas that potentially had a lot of gaming-related loot to reap, it was this one. Fall 2011 has brought us so many spectacular games, that there were literally any number of games that would make a great gift, from the random 3DS entry to Skyrim to the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection. Or, if you’re like me, you use Christmas to hoard up enough Amazon gift cards to launch you into the next year unafraid, ready for the new adventures of Commander Shepard in Mass Effect 3 or the continued saga of Lightning in FFXIII-2.
Speaking of my loot, I got a couple hundred bucks to Amazon, which I immediately spent on Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Ghostbusters on Blu-ray. As they drop in price over the next couple of weeks, I also plan on grabbing Saint’s Row: The Third, Forza 4 and possibly even Battlefield 3, which is on a one-day sale right now on Amazon. In terms of other gifts, I got an LED light for my computer keyboard, a bag of peppermints (I’m seriously addicted), an FSU thermos and plenty of things for our future daughter. I know, my gifts are turning into an old person’s, but that’s life.
So what about you guys? What loot did you get? Feel free to post your lists here. What all did you do for Christmas? Go!
