They're the sort of game you want to sip glühwein to next to a roasting hot fire. In short, these PC titans are the perfect games for the Christmas holidays.

Round 1: Fight 4 - Divinity: Original Sin 2 v Total War: Warhammer 2

Divinity: Original Sin 2 being was never in doubt. What we weren't prepared for was just how good. It's obscene. D:OS2 is quite simply the best PC-focused RPG in years. If you're looking for the best Christmas gift for a role-playing fan, look no further than Divinity: Original Sin 2. It's everything the first game was and more, amplifying its strong points and fixing its weaknesses. Games are seldom perfect, but Divinity: OS2 comes damn close.

And then there's Total War: Warhammer 2. The RTS connoisseurs choice this holiday season. Arguably less of a sequel, more of a massive expansion pack, Total Warhammer 2 can save you a fortune if you were playing to buy Games Workshop miniatures as gifts. It's Games Workshop's fantasy world brought to life in vivid, epic detail, so at £40 full price, it already sounds like a bargain gift.

 

Vote for your pick in the poll below, and remember to get involved in the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti giveaway above.

Neither, as I already have them both and they were well worth the money.

Divinity is nice...but total war warhammer 2 is better..and when mixed with warhammer 1 into mortal empires there's really no competition here.
