    I remember getting a DS for Christmas back in 2004. I was blown away by the whole concept of a touch screen and being able to play Mario 64 on the go.

    Assassin's Creed 2 was released in 2009. 2009 also had had Uncharted 2. Those 2 games and The Saboteur made an awesome Christmas!

    Great article by the way, brought back a LOT of memories. PC games could have been represented a bit better though, especially RPGs.

    Ahhh, 1988. I was working an after-school job at the local electronics store and was able to purchase a Sega Master System along with a couple of games, one of them being Phantasy was $70 (unheard of then AND today!) but I got my employee discount and got it for like $45 and there began my love affair with JRPGs. I was in gaming bliss for a long time with that game. Also had Rambo (co-op was fun!), Alex Kidd In Miracle World, Fantasy Zone, Zillion and Outrun.

    Ah 1992 was a good year. I remember my brothers geeking out when they brought Street Fighter 2 home. Hee Hee I remember my brother Ben beat my older brother 10 times in a row and that made him smash one of the controllers in rage. My mom was angry about it, but my dad couldn't stop laughing about it. I remember seeing these games at Best Buy when we would go.

    And for the record, in 10 years I think people will look back on 2013 and remember Gran Turismo 6, XCOM:Enemy Within, Rayman Legends, PS4, Xbox One, and Assassin's Something-Or-Other (chicks dig assassins).

    This list reminds me that I'm STILL waiting for the price to drop for Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Double Dash, and Mario Kart Wii so I can finally play them. Has it really been that many years I've been waiting for a price drop????

    Damn, its been amazing these holidays Nintendo needs to bundle 3D World in a Wii U bundle, its already clear from numerous sites that 3D World is the best (Subjective to opinion mind you) Next Gen game this entire year, Nintendo has to take advantage of this situation if they hope to actually reach the sales goal they made on the end of the fiscal year, and they are barely half way there.

    Also slash it from $300 to $250, Come on Nintendo you need this

    And where the hell is the launch of the 3ds?
  • GR_HenryGilbert - December 5, 2013 5:50 p.m.

    The 2011 slide has it covered, don't worry
  • shawksta - December 5, 2013 5:52 p.m.

    The 3DS's launch was in Febuary, March, April, and July not really as a Holiday Launch The closest was September in Taiwan and Hong Kong

    This is a good list but I don't have any attachment to any games from Christmas time since I usually get what I really want as soon as possible
