And then there were six. This is where things really start heating up as our six champions now go head to head an effort to reach the final. We've separated the wheat from the chaff (*sniff* goodnight Monster Hunter, my sweet prince) and things are about to get serious in the 12 Games of Christmas 2019. It's the Semi-Finals and it's Battlefield V versus God of War.

How the community voting works

Each day at 17:00 GMT two titles will battle each other. Whichever title receives the most votes in the poll wins, and will then go through to the next round. 12 games in total will be battling away, and the first six rounds will take place from today and over the next five days - one battle per day. The six games that win will make it through to the semi-finals, where three further 1v1 fights will take place. The winners of these three battles will then make it to the three-way final to decide the ultimate game this Christmas. 

Each bout will last 23 hours, and the winner is whichever game receives the most votes in the poll, which can be found towards the bottom of each article. 

Semi-Final: Fight 1 - Battlefield V vs God of War

A fearsome battle if ever we've seen one, it's the multiplayer, multiplatform might of Battlefield V up against the single-player brutality of God of War. Both scored big victories in the first round, knocking out Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Spider-Man respectively.

This round is an altogether different prospect though, and it makes for a damn tough prediction. BFV has suffered a slightly limp launch despite its excellence, while God of War can only be played on PS4. 

As ever though, it's up to you to decide as Battlefield 5 takes on God of War.

Get voting below for your winner, and remember to check back tomorrow for the second Semi-Final of the 12 Games of Christmas, where two more titles will battle it out to earn a place in the Grand Final. The winner of today's competition will face the winner of yesterday's face-off in the Final on 20th December!
