Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

So what games/systems/accessories are on your Christmas List?

Dragon Age
Borderlands
NCAA Football 2010
Assassins Creed 2

I'll be happy with getting the first two

World Peace and a Brotherhood of Man, but I'm not selfish

Realistically, though, I don't have my eye on anything in particular. I already have too big of a backlog and I have other needs this year thanks to my ex-wife being a colossal ****.

Just Borderlands and Assassin's Creed II for me. Thought about throwing DJ Hero on my list, but opted not to at the last minute.

Just Borderlands.

And maybe a new guitar for my GH/RB games. If it's one of the Beatles even better.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

I buy whatever I want myself, so I don't have anything on my wishlist.

My girlfriend reluctantly agreed to buy me A Boy and His Blob for the Wii even though she said that video games already take up too much of my time.

I'm looking forward to it even if it does look like it's made for an 8 year old!

Agreed... I've been picking up more than I usually do lately because of the Amazon/Walmart/Best Buy price competition, so I didn't really ask for any games.

That said, I picked up Batman:AA on Black Friday at Amazon, using my $20 credit from MW2, so got it for $9.99. I have it stashed back so the kids can wrap it with my wife for me for Christmas ;-)

I also picked up several things for my son and daughter that I'll get to play after the unwrap them ;-)

New Super Mario Bros Wii (Wii)
TLoZ: Spirit Tracks (DS)

I have it on good authority that those games are under the tree.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

I purposely didn't buy Left 4 Dead II as I knew someone was going to pick that up for me, other then that and some points cards I don't have anything gaming related on my Christmas list.

As has been stated in this thread, I pretty much buy the games I want when they reach a good price.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

My dad shocked the hell out of me and got me COD:MW2. (Wasn't supposed to know that this soon, but couldn't resist opening the padded envelope from Amazon that I was told "not to open 'til Christmas.") Pretty cool thing for a 61-year-old grandfather to do.

My son is getting Clone Wars and LEGO:Indy for the 360, and LEGO:SW Complete for the DS.

Still on my wishlist: Borderlands and Batman:AA.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

Like everyone else I bought pretty much everything I wanted during all the sales. I did leave two for the wishlist though:

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
God of War Collection


And stuff I'd never drop my money on but work great for a wishlist:

Xbox 360 controller from Gamestop (the red/black one)
Black Wiimote and Nunchuck combo

Other than that I always put xbox point card on my list but have yet to receive one the past few years.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

I buy what I want...but this is a perfect opportunity to tell a Christmas story about video games.

One Christmas, my brother and I gave our parents a list of about 10 video games we wanted..saying that was all we wanted for Christmas. He had a Snes and I had a Sega Genesis...I was in Senior in high school and he was in 8th grade I think.

Well they had good year financially, and felt bad because the year before they were low on money, so they bought all ten games a piece and wrapped them up under the tree. My brother and I came home from school about 2 hours before they would get home, and we came up with the idea to just open one of the games, and just wrap up an older game, because my parents would not have any idea what game was what.

I was playing the game....and my dad even walked in and said "That's a cool looking game" he had no idea. Well we beat the games we opened, and being stupid, we did not stop there. After about 2 weeks we had played and beat every game under the tree and there were 20 old games wrapped up under the tree. That was the worst Christmas morning ever, as we had to act happy opening up old games, and realizing that we had nothing new Christmas day.

My brother and I told our parents that story about 2 years ago and my dad laughed thinking it was funny but my mom was REALLY mad..still gets upset when the subject comes up.

I wrap the shit out of my kids gifts.....

Yeah, same here. But this year my brother in law bought me a 4000 points card. My wife already put it under the tree.

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

I had several games on my Christmas wishlist, but in the meantime I've bought just about all of them thanks to sales, coupons, etc. this season. Wondering how many double copies I'm going to receive that will need to be returned/swapped (and how much mock joy I'll have to summon up when I open them).

Re: Video Games Christmas Wishlist?

Nothing on my wishlist, because of all of the below:

a) I tend to buy the games I want myself;
b) If I put a game on my list, I know whoever buys it for me will probably have paid full price for it, and I hate buying things and not getting a deal for them; and
c) I went apeshit this past month buying games, so there's nothing else out there I really have to have.
