So, “Die Hard”, the 1988 action movie that had Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman, is it considered a Christmas movie? I mean, it does have a Christmas party, in a tower located in Los Angeles.

I know, I’m stirring up this seasonal debate, but I have a reason. After hearing a brief discussion from another podcast about the movie, it occurred to me that perhaps video game have this same dilemma, aside from being theme in its environment and character dressing.

For this week’s episode, we’ll be listening to tracks from video games that take place on or within Christmas, whether it’s on the eve, on the day, or during the season:  a stealth mission into Zanzibar Land, an opera singer mutated into a cellular nightmare, and New York City desolated after Black Friday. We’ll also hear some covers and remixes with each track.

Hope you enjoy these tracks, after a healthy and heated debated about “Die Hard”…
