Ahhh, there’s nothing quite like the turn of winter. Blankets, warm beverages, fluffy sweaters and slippers, all good signs that it’s time to “chill” out with one’s favorite games. If you’ve been following Virtual Bastion for a while (if so, thank you!), then you know what this time of year means…it’s Listmas-time! This year marks our ninth time focusing on this blogging tradition. It’s been quite a year all around, and we’re especially thankful for the respite from all things serious that Listmas provides. Listmas gives us the chance to share with you some of our own gaming thoughts, opinions, and feelings in bite-sized components. It’s all very “easy to digest” fare, as it were, during a month when things can get a little crazy, despite any best efforts otherwise. We enjoy Listmas, and we hope you will, too!
As it goes, Listmas is all about, well…lists! But this time, we’ve got a fun theme to accompany this year’s lists, “All I want for Listmas”! So what lists can you expect from us? Well, we’ve got a few fun topics in our pocket for the month, which will look something like this:
Week 1: Favorite cozy settings in games
Week 2: Game remakes/remasters we’d like to see
Week 3: Our gaming dream vacations
Week 4: Wildcard – anything goes!
If you want to join Listmas, you can! Listmas is not just about us; it’s about the joys of both blogging and the holiday season. So come up with your own lists and post away! We’ll keep an eye on our social media feeds to share any Listmas posts we catch. (Tagging them with #Listmas or #Listmas2022 will help.) Our posts will begin on this coming Sunday, and we hope you’ll come with us on our Listmas journey all month long.
