  1. I remember getting a demo of Robocod with a PC magazine. Only it wasn’t a demo, it turned out to be the whole game?!

  2. Unless my memory is failing me, Psycho Santa starts farting if he eats the Christmas turkeys. And explodes if he eats too many. 27 years is a long time though, can anyone confirm?

  3. There are actually two Christmas Jazz Jackrabbit games, one from 94 and another from 95. Each with a new and unique set of levels.

  4. Dan did anyone come up with a video game based on Futurerama's Santabot character, where he thought everyone was nauty and tryed to kill them. Don't forget they also had the "what the hell is Kanza " not.😀

  5. Nice little dig at Argentina in Cannon Soccer. Never forget 1986 World Cup.

  6. It's a fan game rather than a true retro game, but I love merry gear solid

  7. Happy Christmas Dan and all the best for 2021 mate. X-Wing is a Christmas game for me as I got it on a Christmas shopping trip with my birthday money. November birthdays are the BEST! 😀 So yeah, lots of games are "Christmas" to me. Nostalgia overload. 😀

  8. 5 Xmas Nights into dreams just seems like the Xmas version of nights into dreams. I don’t thinks it was a sort of tech demo, unless it came out before nights into dreams.

    Every year I play a level of Xmas lemming on the emulator 😀

    For some reason the game that is most tied to a Christmas memory is “Special forces” on the Amiga. Not really a Xmas game but I vividly remember playing it with my brother on Xmas

    UPDATE I think you are referring to nights into dreams itself being sort of a tech demo

    This year I wil boot up Animal crossing to get the Xmas vibe 😀

    Mary Xmas to you as well. Hope to see and hear a lot more of your content in the new year

  9. Merry Christmas Dan! Thanks for the great content all year long!

  10. Merry Christmas Dan! 🙂
    Many greetings from Bavaria, Germany 🙂

  11. I got that Canon Soccer from the news agent when it was released, it was a great game.

  12. Hi all… I made bad choices in my life.. and today I'm alone for Christmas.

  13. Always wanted an A1200 for Christmas but that never happened 🙁

  14. 10:15 only just noticed, that those are mega lo mania castles in Cannon Soccer – very cool

  15. Video fireplaces have dropped the ball a bit, recently. They used to be about the fireplace itself, but now they're all about the surround. 😳

  16. I had that A500+ Christmas experience. The cartoon classics bundle. Lemmings a true classic… the simpsons game… struggled on the first level! Lol.

  17. This felt like a very warm and fuzzy Christmas video. Thanks for the reminder on what it was like to get new games at Christmas. You can never go back but the memories will never go away. Merry Christmas. 🎄🎄🎄🎇🎆

  18. hey dan.. have a great christmas, all the best for 2021 🙂

  19. This is very CooL! Thanks a lot for sharing this. Merry Christmas 🎄

  20. If I watch this in the morning, is that called morning Wood? 🤔🎄☃️

  21. The Snowman on the 48k spectrum was very enjoyable

  22. Totally agree with the selection!
    Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family Dan. 🎄⛄☃️❄🎁🎊🥂🍾

  23. Winter Games on the Commodore 64. All the mini games were great fun with my family and family is such an important part of a child's Christmas, after all.

  24. Great video mate. Still need to play Home Alone after all these years.

  25. Amiga format or Amiga active was a hard choice but in the mid 90s onwards there was another Amiga magazine I used to get from whsmith but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it I used to love the cover cds and even hooked my cd32 via parnet to my A1200 to copy files of the cover cd to my A1200s hard drive.

  26. Merry Xmas Dan! ah lemmings, ended up working for DMA, which was like some surreal dream.

  27. I remember paying for my commodore 16 and spending xmas playing mr punchy

  28. Transport Tycoon with the snowy landscape. Not really Christmas themed, but it does have lots of snow. Just as good.

  29. Thanks Dan, merry Christmas and happy new year!

  30. Yay Cannon Soccer! AF and CU Amiga December issues were such a treat! Thanks for the memories Dan , Merry Christmas and the best for 2021

  31. Brilliant Xmas u I couldn't wait to get the bumper xmas editions of the magazines. Always had lots extra pages and demos
