The Official "What did Santa bring you?" thread

I got mine a little early tonight from my wife and was surprised that she knew what games to get me. She said that she would listen in on my conversations with friends and my brothers and would write down the names of the games that I said was "cool" or that I would like to have.

I got:

Splinter Cell
Ghost Recon
Unreal Champioship
Turok
Enclave
Serious Sam (Raincheck)

It's entirely possible that I did several weeks ago.

Santa was myself and my haphazard credit card use, but I guess that I can say that Santa brought me:

A Gamecube w/ Metroid and a Wavebird for around $115 with the CC, MS Wallet, and rebate deal

A few preorders for next year for about $20 each from the EB and BBV deals

Splinter Cell for $32.99 from the CC sale and $5 BB coupn

Serious Sam for $14.99 from same

I got Ninja Assault... and it doesn't work (most of the CD-rom games I have for my PS2 make some horrendous noises, but DO play, this is the first time I've encountered a game that would refuse to even load )

So far, gamewise, my brother gave me Halo, Mechassault, and XBox Live (also Age of Mythology--very nice to have a brother that works at MS). Hopefully, that means the big heavy box under the tree for Christmas morning is an XBox.

no video game presents

But I'll be exchanging some sweaters for video games. Or at least, I'll try.

Why not this....

I didn't get s..t for xmas!!

Only a sweater. That's it.

I guess I'm going out to buy me lots of presents for myself now. Why not a $500 dollar shooping spree since I'm depress. That'll help build up the Xmas spirt again.
