While I would be happy to see a shiny new Xbox 360 under my
tree come Christmas morning, I’m just thinking that’s not going to happen. Instead, my Christmas list consists of some
great games that I somehow missed through the past year.
Actually, most of my wishlist titles are PS2 games this
year, as I’ve managed to pick up most of the interesting PC games. Shadow
of the Colossus has been calling to me from the store shelves for a while
now. I’m a sucker for non-traditional
games, and this beauty from the makers of Ico is almost irresistible. I’d also like to hit the slopes again with SSX On Tour, as I’ve been a
long-time fan of the series.
To scratch my RPG itch, Dragon
Quest 8 looks to do the trick. I
just need a dose of RPG goodness every so often, or I start to get cranky. Moving to handhelds, I wouldn’t mind finding Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones for the
GBA to help pass the time on the long holiday drives.
On the PC side of things, there’s really only one title I
feel I need: Civilization IV. Yes, I
almost feel ashamed that I haven’t picked this gem up yet, but I’m sure that
Santa will be kind this year. (note
from the editor: Tyler just got his review copy in the mail so he's all
good but this is still a game the strategy gamer in your life needs).
And finally, on my “it’ll never happen” list, I would be
ecstatic if Square Enix made a surprise announcement about Kingdom Hearts 2 actually releasing before next year. Wishful thinking, I know, but it is that time
of year for miracles…
