It's the christmas issue next month, so our question is the following.

What game will you be playing Christmas Day?

I'll be playing this season's ultimate party game: Guitar Hero World Tour. Most likely strumming all on my own to Dinosaur Jr.'s Feel The Pain.

None :(

I will be driving an hour each way to go for dinner with family, with a month old baby in tow :?

I'll no doubt be playing Megaman... in Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, either that or a bit of Rockband 2. Anything to ignore the family :D

I'll be re-enacting an 'old skool' Xmas from the 80's by playing Commando and Bomb Jack on a Speccy emulator ! I'll be recreating 1985 all over again !

In keeping with the true meaning of Chrismas, rather than the commercial disgrace its now become, I will be playing Bible Adventures on the NES.

* The true meaning, of course, being the birth of Santa!

Manhunt 2 on both PS2 and Wii to compare both versions and to see what all the fuss was all about.

Hopefully one of the following: Tomb Raider Underworld, Siren Blood Curse or Fallout 3 (all for the PS3). I'll keep my fingers crossed!

You'll be disappointed....especially playing the retail versions...:(

I'll likely be playing mainly Banjo: Nuts & Bolts or Smackdown vs Raw 2009 this year. But as I get Smackdown tommorow and Banjo next week, there's still time for me to get Fallout 3 or Gears Of War 2 by Dec 25th...

My mum and dad have bought me a nice shiny new laptop for Xmas too, so I'll probably also be playing 'trying (and failing) to sort out the settings on my wireless router' on Xmas night.

i'll most likely start out playing motorstorm, then onto the Buzz game and scene it to get the party spirit going with the family.

Christmas Nights - erase current save, start again and re-open the presents! It's the only game to play on Christmas day!

I'll be playing either the traditional Christmas game "How much turkey can I eat without being sick or passing out?" or possibly Guitar Hero: World Tour. Probably not both though as that could lead to another embarrassing Christmas visit to A&E. :D

Most likely one of those awful DVD quiz games "with the family".

Last year we played the James Bond one. Me versus everyone else (my mum, dad, sister, wife, aunt, uncle, sister-in-law, father-in-law and mother-in-law) and I still thrashed 'em; so think it will be a different one this year. 8)

I would love to say Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero World Tour, but I think the real answer will be Lego Batman as the Lego games are the only ones the good lady will play.
