It’s that most magical time of year, when families come together to celebrate the wonders and joy of the holidays. Fires crackle, carols serenade, and the aroma of feasts overwhelm the senses. And as you settle down on the couch to watch the big game with your loved ones, I’m sure you’ll have the same thought running through your head as well:
How am I supposed to game like this?
Let’s get this out of the way up front. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday of the year. As a Member of the Tribe, Christmas is more of a go-to-a-move-and-eat-Chinese kind of time.

As I am not comfortable checking my PS3, and don’t have the funds to buy it a seat, I have to get creative when it comes to my holiday gaming. So here, for your edification, is my guide to holiday gaming escapes.
