What's on your PS4 Christmas Games wish list?
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU - PLAYSTATION 4

The next gen systems are coming soon.
I remember as a young kid getting my first Sega Mega drive for Christmas. My Mum had been acting very suspicious a few days before and I didn't know why.
You see I had thought my not so subtle hints at what I wanted had gone completely unnoticed. In fact my hints where not very subtle at all, they were so shamelessly obvious that you had to be walking around with your eyes shut and your hands in your ears not to notice them.
Like the time I conveniently left the newspaper opened on the table with the Sega Mega drive console circled with a bright red marker pen. Or the times I would slip how awesome the new console looked as we walked past the games store.
No matter how much I hinted, my Mum never seemed to take much notice.
I even made sure I had been on my best behaviour, leading up to the holidays. My grades were excellent as always. I did all my chores before she even asked. I even prayed asking Father Christmas to help persuade my Mum to buy me the games console. Spoiler Alert - (You see by then I was old enough to know Santa Claus wasn't real, but maybe if he was, he could maybe mention a good word on my behalf.)
On Christmas Day I was in high spirits, it was snowing outside, so it had that authentic Christmassy atmosphere to the day. Star Wars Episode 1 was on TV - (Yes!) My mum was busying herself in the kitchen making our favourite breakfast of sweet plantains, fried eggs with onions peppers, and sausages - Yum.
I walked into the living room to see a couple of new boxes under the Christmas tree, they had been slowing piling up for a few days, and curiosity had been getting the better of me all week. When the coast was clear I would go and lift up a few random boxes, to shake it and feel its weight, hoping it was what I had been wishing for.
When it was time to open our presents after breakfast. I ripped through the paper wrappings of each one to discover the goodies that laid beneath . . . and nothing . . . no Sega Mega Drive.
Boy was I disappointed, but still so very very grateful for everything else i did get, like that Rudolf the red nose reindeer sweater.
(Yep just like this one, model by our favourite British Reporter Mr Jon Snow . . . You guys know you got one of those sweaters too, don't lie.)
After my siblings and I had opened all our presents, we went back to what we were doing, which really isn't much on Christmas day. Playing with our new toys, watching Luke Skywalker discover Darth Vader was his Father. (Nooooooooo!)
