    Geeky Christmas Movies/Shows/Games

    Post  Paeter on December 13th 2016, 10:24 am

    I thought this topic had been covered here last year, but I couldn't find it in the archives for either of the last two years, so I'm starting up again here!

    I'm interested in a collected pool of suggestions we can all look at for geeky Christmas movie/TV/game options. I've got my annual bake-a-thon day coming this Saturday, and with our Kitchen overseeing our TV room I like to watch geeky Christmas movies all day while I bake.

    The category can be super broad and only requires that the movie/ep in question have some artifact of Christmas in the setting. Even a Christmas tree briefly in the background of one scene that no one mentions qualifies it as a "Christmas" movie/ep/game. (Although if the reference is that obscure it would be cool to make a note of it when the title is listed.)

    Here's my default list as an example and to get the ball rolling. Please add your own or tell me what I forgot!

    MOVIES
    Batman Returns
    Prometheus (brief appearance of tree and mention that "it's Christmas")
    Iron Man 3
    Hook (family visits England during Christmas season)
    Pretty Much ANY Harry Potter movie (Christmas sometimes even briefly factors into the plot)
    Watchmen (A christmas scene is briefly in a Dr. Manhattan flashback)
    Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (The opening scene is a christmas time flashback)
    The Nightmare Before Christmas
    Scrooged

    TV EPS
    Farscape, "Terra Firma"
    Justice League Animated Series, "Comfort And Joy"
    Batman Animated Series, "Christmas With The Joker" & "Holiday Knights"


    GAMES
    Parasite Eve (A Christmas/New Year backdrop for the story)
    Resogun (with free downloadable "Santa's Sleigh" ship and seasonal "santa humans")
    DC Universe Online (Larfleeze Seasonal Missions)
    Saints Row 4 "How The Saints Save Christmas" DLC
    Fallout 4 (Visit Diamond City on Dec. 25th In Game or build X-mas trees at settlements)
    Neverwinter Nights (User made Christmas Mods- https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/module/christmas &
    https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/module/christmas-bloodletting )

    All the Doctor Who Christmas specials, obviously!
    And the Warehouse 13 Christmas specials.

    And Gremlins, how did you miss Gremlins?

    Bless the Child started out at Christmas
    Quantum Leap did a episode inspired by Christmas Carol
    I seem to remember and episode of The Real Ghost Busters (animated series) where they saved Scrooge from the Ghost
    Arkham Origins takes place on Christmas Eve
    Many of the Kingdom Hearts games have you visit The Nightmare Before Christmas world but only Kingdom Hearts II has you visit Christmas Town (the final mix version even includes your costume and music to change to match the world)

    That reminds me, wasn't Ghostbusters II set around December? I know the 'busters are wearing Santa hats at some point in the ghost busting montage, and everyone sings Auld Lang Syne at the end, so it counts anyway santa
