On the Fourth Day of Blogmas…

Welcome one and all to a very Athena Veta season of good will! Athena’s a friend of the show, as it were, and general all-around cool person; she also happens to be extremely smart, so check out her blog at the AmbiGaming Corner for deep and well-considered thoughts on what we can learn from gaming as well as a whole bunch of other always-interesting stuff.

For the holiday season this year, Athena’s coordinated an event based on that classic Marmite of tunes (you love it or you hate it): The Twelve Days of Christmas. Each day from December 26th to January 6th, we’ll look at a gamified version of one of the song’s lines until eventually we have 364 gamey gifts!

On the first day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: What are twelve favourite gaming memories?

On the second day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: Tell us eleven games you love!

On the third day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: What are ten reasons you would play a game?

On the fourth day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: Give us nine games on your to-play list!

I don’t really have a to-play list as such, but there are a bunch of games I’m hoping I will at some point get to play! Let’s have six of those:

9. Nier: Automata

8. Persona 5

7. Bloodborne

6. Kingdom Hearts III

5. God of War

4. Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee

Those are all PS4 games except Let’s Go, so in theory all I need is to get a Switch, wait for KHIII to come out, and buy all the other games, and then I’ll be ready to go!

There are also three games I’ve played before but would really like to play again soon, so here they are:

3. Skyrim

2. Just Cause 2

1. Assassin’s Creed 2

And those are the games I’d like to play soon! As with the other lists, they’re in no particular order.

Of course, I’m writing this in advance, so I don’t know who else is taking part or what they’ll have written, but I bet there are a bunch of other awesome people writing incredibly cool things on this very topic today, so check out the AmbiGaming Corner and probably Twitter for some links! See you tomorrow for the next day of Blogmas…



  1. Cool list, hope you enjoy Bloodborne and Persona 5 when you get to them, I enjoyed them very much (well, I haven’t finished P5 yet but it’s good so far!).

    I had been planning to get Nier Automata for my partner for Christmas but then they announced a special edition due to come out in feb (I think) so am now waiting until then.
