I got the C&C Red Alert, the add-ons & a blue jumper for Christmas in '97 & that's what I did for hours & hours every day for the whole holiday. To this day the original Red Alert feels Christmassy... & makes me want to wear a jumper.
It also has a lot of snowy maps in the skirmish mode for extra atmosphere.
Was there ever a grinch game release?
The first couple of hours in Mafia 2 were quite Christmasy. Great snow effects and superb xmas radio whilst driving around town
TF2 just brought out a new Xmas MOD - like they do every year!
Back in the old 8-bit days there were plenty of Christmas themed games (usually as a covertape)
League of legends did it this year, releasing some Xmas themed champion skins and a festive reskin of summoner's rift complete with Santa hat wearing minions, a new soundtrack, snow and ice everywhere and some of the pine trees decorated and lit up.
Sorry to go off topic, but are there any other LoL players on bit-tech? As I have never seen any mention of it in the forums
He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!
What? No love for Jazz Jackrabbit Holiday Hare from the mid 90s?.....scandolous. I used to play the shareware version of it all the time when I was younger. Fits the Christmassy bill perfectly!
I loved that game! Im gonna see if gog has it
I remember the winter levels in CoD 2, the cold breath vapour of the Germans was a dead giveaway when they were hiding in cover in the Russian levels. I seem to remember the United Offensive expansion pack for the original CoD had some pretty good Battle of the Bulge levels as well.
The first Serious Sam game had a Christmas themed level, oh what fun I had machinegunning giant killer snowmen
In Guild Wars there is even a Snowballing GvG (Guild VS Guild) Tournament ! xD
James Pond 2: Robocod is the only one I can remember
Hitman Blood Money has a xmas themed level, something odd about assassinating a target dressed as Santa
World in Conflict had a level set in a town at xmas time, which was also a Multiplayer level - all pristine snow and glowing light and decorations, all well and good untill it start to rain napalm and cluster bombs.
I recall Modern Warfare got a xmas remake of a popular level (crash maybe?)
And oddly, Shugun 2 seems to have had it's main menue screen replaced with a scene of snowmen, xmas trees and decorations, not that it seems to be anywhere else in the game unless I am mistaken.
yeah, I am also very upset, because only 5 days are left but still we don't any have any game for Christmas holidays. :-(
Worms games have snowy/christmassy maps
Diddy Kong Racing on the N64. Snowflake Mountain, Frosty Village especially. For some reason that world was probably the most fun for me in the game, and I always ended up going back to the world especially in multiplayer. Always felts very christmast like, one of my favorites when I was younger to play during the holidays.
I used to properly love "Father Christmas" on the Commodore 64 when I was a kid

Another shout for Jazz Jackrabbit, legendary game
