This Christmas, Get Your Game On!

With all the beauty and fashion Christmas wish lists going around on the ol' bloggersphere, I thought I'd tell you about the games I'd put on my list for Santa. I've got to be honest and tell you that I will definitely not be getting any of these for Christmas, as I've already spoilt myself - whoops!

Check me out and my picmonkey editing skills. Plus, bonus red tree!
Not entirely sure how I ended up with a red tree? but let's go on regardless. First up, I've selected The Sims Pets expansion pack. I love The Sims. As a student, I feel like it's my obligation to sit and spend hours creating the perfect house and Simmies, only to go and kill everyone in a house fire as and when I see fit. I'm hoping if my Sims had pets, I would be less likely to murder my pretend family. (Please tell me I'm not alone in this, I'm slightly worried for myself!) Game are currently offering this at £14.99 as well as a few other expansion packs, so that's pretty great!

Next up, we have Zoo Tycoon. Let me just start with saying this looks INCREDIBLE. I really, really, really want it. It's roughly £34.99 for this, for some reason the Game website isn't giving me a price, but I would get this from my local store anyways - yay for staff discount! I want to have my own zoo and pet animals and stuff. Dylan would probably enjoy this, too. Probably.

Do I even have to explain wanting Zelda: A Link Between Worlds? I think not. I've always been a huge fan of Link and the Zelda games. This has gone back to the old school design, something which the recent Wii game was lacking for me. I love the graphics and can't wait to go back to the legendary world of Hyrule!

Lastly, we have everybody's favourite puzzle-solving Professor. I am a huge Professor Layton fan and I am devastated that this is the last game in the series - or so they say. I hope it isn't true. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy has received some great reviews, and I've been itching to buy it for so long. This game kind of follows on from the previous game, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, so it might be best to play that first.

So, there's my short and sweet gaming wish list. I'm hoping to maybe treat myself (again!) once I've been paid, as I really do enjoy getting lost for hours on end with a console! Would you like any games waiting for you under the tree?

I haven't been sponsored by Game for this post, I just prefer them to amazon and the like! 
Feel free to shop around if you wish :) 


  1. Zoo Tycon is always so addictive, even thought I apparently would never make a good zoo keeper in real life going by the shortened life expectancy of my animals in said game!

    1. I love it, I used to have all sorts of 'tycoon' games for the pc - I should never be allowed my own theme park, that's for sure!

  2. Oh the Sims is beyond addictive! I've had to ban myself. A little because I played all the time and a little because of my homicidal tendancies also. Tough times.

    1. So glad it isn't just me! Maybe the creators need to set up some sort of help group for people like us... x

  3. I haven't played Zoo Tycoon in years--I used to love it!
