The 12 Games of Christmas competition has thrown up some surprising contenders this year, with Global Game Awards 2017 Game of the Year Nier Automata knocked out at the first hurdle. Three bruisers made it through to the finals: Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Divinity: Original Sin. But, there can be only one winner, the ultimate gaming gift for Christmas 2017.
And the Winner is: Assassin's Creed Origins
Assassin's Creed Origins is a triumphant return for what had become one of Ubisoft's most maligned series. Taking that year off paid dividends, resulting in Assassin's Creed Origins being the hottest gaming gift this Christmas.
In our review we said "I could wax on about Assassin’s Creed Origins for a long time. For all its foibles it’s a staggering achievement, and most certainly the best the series has ever offered alongside Black Flag. Those who prefer the dense city networks of the original games may bounce off it a little, but for anyone even remotely interested in the prospect of The Witcher and Assassin’s Creed crossing paths, this comes highly recommended."
Congratulations to the winner!
