It's Winter-een-mas!


It's Winter-een-mas!

Winter-een-mas is the week-long holiday of gamers, originating from webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del (which, ironically, was rebooted some time ago). The last seven days of January are the time to celebrate gaming. I, unless I have something particular going on, usually follow format set by CAD 2004 special Winter-een-mas Story that showed seven Spirits of Gaming: ones dedicated to action-adventure, FPS, beat'em-up, strategy, driving, RPG and sports. Those are my themes of the seven days.

However today is a very special Winter-een-mas day. Today is 10th anniversary of the very comic in which (then) main character had the idea that there should be one joyous occasion in middle of the cold, dark, gloomy winter. And so came to be the holiday celebrated by thousands of games all over the world (though I'm sure by very few in such an orthodox manner as myself).

Re: It's Winter-een-mas!


Since this year, first time for ages, the comic celebrates the old holiday again, I'm certainly making most of this Winter-een-mas.

Have to try the 4 games I recently got; those'll cover FPS, driving and RPG - but where do I put the flight sim? The old etiquette problem of games outside the exact 7 genres...
