It's Christmas. A time for slumping in front of the TV and doing nothing other than watching crappy movies, drinking far too much, and eating the equivalent of week's worth of food in a single day. But when uncle Frank just gets a bit too much, which game are you going to block him out by playing?

This Christmas I have a game backlog as long as my arm, but I thought I'd kick off with Resistance 3. I loved the first two, and while I still have Call of Duty 3, Black Ops 1 and 2 in my list, I fancied and alien-blasting change (can you tell I'm an FPS-first gamer?). Others on my list this Christmas are Sonic 4 (parts 1 and 2) on my iPhone, and for when I need something a little less frenetic, the awesome QatQi (which is free right now) is my go-to. Oh, and there's always Galaxy on Fire 2, if I need a space-blasting hit.

PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, whatever -- 2012 was a truly great year for gaming, but what's on your Christmas gaming list right now?
