Mega Man X, Streets of Rage 2, and any of the Mortal Kombat titles always get me in the Christmas spirit.

SSX Tricky - PS2 - I played that a LOT in the run up to Christmas a few years back (probably 10-ish I'd think).... brilliant game...

Weirdly didn't feel the same love for the PSP version.

Nothing says "Christmas morning" like turning an AK-47 on a lobby of kids who've just unwrapped the latest Call of Duty.
