Add that Fortune Street game to the list it would make a great party game, comes out "Christmas Eve" Eve, it's kinda like Monopoly, but with a fully functioning stock market.

more that can be said for the real life version. /satire

Our Christmas gaming paylist is....

Buzz
Box Office Smash
Singstar
Rock Band

Great for all ages, and for some reason, saves the physical "wrangles" that seem to happen with old skool board games....

I have Mashed: Fully Loaded & a Super Nintendo with Super Bomberman & a multitap.

I think I'll be okay without this casual s**t, thank you.

There'll be things to do but just in case, there's:
Rayman Origins
Mario Kart

Kinect:
JD3
Sports 1 and 2
and finally Adventures to run off the xmas pud...or not

Although Go Vacation for the Wii looks good fun as well

Mashed, what a great game they need to make another one. Will you be playing it on PS2 or have they released it on psn? if so that will be my next purchase :D

Mashed Fully Loaded is also an Xbox 1 game & is compatible with 360. That's the version I own.

They are planning on making a new one... http://www.wearewrecked.com/

At Christmas I play through games I associate with my childhood from Christmas. Standouts for me are CE, reached the swamp level were you first glimpse the Flood the day after Christmas, and Half-Life 2, 1 full playthrough without fail! Gears of War too actually, the first one that is.

My family and myself will probably be playing the first Rabbids game, maybe I can get them into Rayman Origins as well:)

Here's a novel idea.....instead of playing party video games, howabout interacting with family and friends?

Unless you're a 3 headed monkey.

If so, then best stick to party video games.

Especially the single player option.

Frankly I think there's room for both rbt. The getting together is brilliant but after it's all over you can feel kind of overwhelmed and need a bit of space. :)
