Deck your PCs and consoles, gamers, Christmas is upon us again! Time to log into your favourite games with Christmas events and spend the holidays grinding your rank (or actually enjoy playing your games.)

To celebrate this magical time of year when your toxic teammates end up on Santa’s naughty list, gives you the ultimate gift of laughter with this week’s Christmas-themed Meme Monday! 

  1. Who’s Santa Claus? I only know Epic Games

Well-known and beloved for always giving us free games, Epic Games is certainly the Santa Claus of the gaming world. This Christmas season, Epic Games Store is giving a free game every day for 15 days! No thank you, ridiculously overpriced advent calendars, Epic Games has got us (and our wallets) covered.

Thanks to Omicron, Christmas gatherings and celebrations this year are taking a hit…again. Well, look at the bright side! At least you can still hang out with the homies in online multiplayer games (bonus if the game has Christmas events!)

  1. All I want for Christmas is you

Ah, the legends of Half-Life 3 and Grand Theft Auto VI… While there have been plenty of rumours and speculation floating around their developments, just keep adding them on to your Christmas wishlist for now! (At least we’ve checked FF7-Remake off the list recently)

An iconic Christmas figure, second only to Santa Claus himself, Michael Bublé resurfaces annually to grace our radios (and shopping mall toilets) with his legendary Christmas songs. As someone who has unironically listened to them on repeat since October, I am NOT complaining. 

5. Thank you, grandma! But…


RIP to all the gamers who have experienced receiving a gift from someone only to discover that it is a DLC/expansion pack to a game you don’t even have. Pro-tip: When that happens, just thank the person and go. It’s an honest mistake and a sweet and thoughtful gesture nonetheless! At least it’s not a re-gifted present from 2012. (I may or may not have received one of those.)
