Okay this is a silly idea but just bear with me here. Since there are very few new video games out there to discuss and review, why not review your Christmas holiday as if it was a video game? I'm totally going to give mine a score out of ten.
My Christmas holidays had some glorious high points, but it also had a few troughs.
Pros The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Awesome family time A cool trip to a big family house that we booked My brother visited from Scotland Got a slow cooker -- aw yeah! Ate loads of porridge Chocolate cake
Cons I got a weird eye infection Couldn't wear contacts, lost my glasses Therefore couldn't see and couldn't play anything except handheld games Way too busy and packed -- no time to actually relax Didn't get to climb that much Put on a little weight
The not being able to play video games because I'm blind thing was a big issue. I could have ordered a new pair of glasses but goddamn -- it was the holidays and it was going to take roughly two weeks to get there. Argh. I couldn't really watch movies, TV, or play games. Couldn't drive either. IT WAS THE WORST.
I compensated by playing Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U Gamepad, which was totally a lifesaver.
Overall I give my holidays a seven out of ten. How did you all go?
