We've made it to the second Semi-Final in the 12 Games of Christmas tournament, and surprisingly our Game of the Year winner Assassins Creed: Valhalla was beaten out by Horizon: Zero Dawn in a close match of 122 votes to 155 respectively. Meaning HZD will be moving onto the Grand Finale.

We honestly did not see that coming judging by this year's Global Game Awards 2020 winners, however today should provide another decent challenge as Ghost of Tsushima is going head to head against DOOM Eternal. Who will make it to the Grand Finale and up against Horizon Zero Dawn? Only you can decide...

How the community voting works

Each day at 17:00 GMT (09:00 PT, 12:00 ET) two titles will battle against 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 fights 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 grand final to decide the ultimate game of Christmas 2020. 

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. All you have to do is click the name of the title you wish to vote for. You won't be able to see the results from other voters until polling closes at 16:00 GMT the following day.

Round 2: Semi-Final 2 - Ghost of Tsushima vs DOOM Eternal

Two of the biggest action-adventure games of the year are going head to head today. Will it be the historical Ghost of Tsushima set in feudal Japan? Or will it be the futuristic shooter-fest DOOM Eternal? Both games share similar themes and mechanics, but are distinct enough on their own to set them apart easily.

Ghost of Tsushima has a wide and vibrant open world begging you to explore every nook and cranny of it. Whilst DOOM Eternal takes a more linear approach, yet still offers up the same amount of exploration that you would find in a similar open world environment.

But only 1 can move onto the Grand Finale and fight to be crowned the most wanted game under the Christmas Tree. Will it be Tsushima? Or Eternal?

And remember: this is for which game you'd prefer to get for Christmas, regardless of whether you bought and played the games already. This is about which game would make you the most excited when waking up on Christmas Day and finding it under the tree. If you don't want either of the games listed here, then just vote for which one you'd prefer to see in the next round.

Get voting in the poll below for your favorite choice, and remember to check back again tomorrow for the results and Day Nine of the 12 Games of Christmas 2020; where two more titles will battle it out to earn a place in the third and final Semi-Final. The winner of today's competition will face the winner of yesterday's and tomorrow's competition in the Grand Finale on 23rd December!

DOOM Eternal. Ghost of Tsushima is really good but a little over-hyped, just a little.

Both great games, personally I prefer GOT over DE, simply because I just can't get into DE, I tried and more I try, less it feels like Doom I love with platforming and forcing chainsaw/glory kills thing, always keeping you one low health. Plus punching got nerfed to where it might as well be only QTE for glory kills. Dunno, just feels too off for me. But great game for those who love it.
