Banjo Kazooie Christmas is definitely the most wonderful time of the year. It’s a time when we can relax, unwind, and snuggle up on our sofas to play our favorite games. That’s why, during the festive season, Christmas-themed games soar in popularity. So, to help you make the most of this festive season and enjoy some unbelievably Christmassy games, we’ve brought you our top pick of the best ones available:

1) Winter Bells.

Since 2006, when this game made its initial debut, it’s been a must-have game to play for every single Christmas. However, if you’ve never played this game before (where have you been all this time?), it won’t take you long to grasp the basics. Your character is a cute bunny that wants to fly high into the sky, and you’ll hop your way there by bouncing on bells and birds. There’s nothing to worry about if you miss a bell, though, because even though bunny comes plummeting back down to Earth, it lands effortlessly on the snow – just in time for you to start the game again.

One thing’s for sure, this game is incredibly addictive and is the perfect way to while away the time while you’re waiting for Christmas. And the best bit? It’s completely free on your PC, or you can pay £0.99 on iOS so you can take it with you wherever you go.

2) Secrets of Christmas.

If you fancy playing a Christmas-themed game whilst pocketing some cash, why not give Secrets of Christmas a go? Produced by NetEnt, this game brings everyone’s favorite time of year to life. As a 3-row, 5-reel, 25-line slot, it features everything you could possibly need for the perfect Christmas, including wreaths, stockings, gingerbread houses, bells, and milk and cookies for Santa. What’s more, there’s even free spins available, which provide you with the chance to find an extra-special Christmas gift, including wild reels, wild symbols, multipliers, and even more free spins.

This slot game is available at Wink Slots where you’ll also find plenty of other fun games to play, including non-themed games you can play all year round. So what are you waiting for? Get some free spins, no deposit required!

3) Banjo Kazooie.

If you were to conjure up a wintery, Christmassy game, Banjo Kazooie would definitely be it. Despite the fact it’s got deserts and forests (which we agree, are distinctly un-festive), it’s jam-packed full of festive tunes and it has Freezeezy Peak, the fifth world Banjo and Kazooie visit. This level boasts endless amounts of Christmas trimmings, including children excited to open their presents, ice rinks, a ginormous snowman, and large decorated trees.

That’s why this game’s perfect for playing in the run up to Christmas. Simply choose to play the retro version on your Nintendo 64, or give it a modern twist by opting for the Xbox Live version. It’s also available as part of RARE Replay, a collection of some of the best games from developers, RARE. Expect to pay around £10 for this game on its own.

4) Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star.

If you loved Hatoful Boyfriend, you’ll love this Christmas-themed version, Holiday Star. This pigeon-dating sim sees you exploring St. Pigeonations as the only human woman, which is why it’s your duty to make friends with (and romance) a variety of good-looking pigeons.

What’s more, you also get to figure out which of these pigeons stole Christmas. See how these cute birds choose to celebrate Christmas and meet the King of the Holiday Star. This game’s available on your PC, PS4, and PS Vita. PC games cost approximately £5 or it’s about £8 if you want to get it for your PS4 or PS Vita.

5) Home Alone.

If there’s one film that makes us feel as though Christmas has arrived, it’s got to be Home Alone. Thankfully, someone also had the sense to turn it into a game, albeit many years ago. But that’s why this 90s game won’t just make you feel festive but will add a touch of nostalgia to your gaming, too.

Available on Sega Mega Drive and Genesis, there’s no need for introductions with this game, as you’re thrown straight into Kevin McCallister’s mischievous shoes, bombing around the local neighborhood on your sleigh. As you scoot around you should rack up plenty of points but you also get the chance to capture those criminals. This allows you to relive all of the best scenes from Home Alone. In just ten minutes, you need to get the house ready for the arrival of Marv and Harry, setting as many booby traps as possible. But don’t let them see you, because if they do, you’ll need to start all over again. Don’t worry if you haven’t still got your copy of Home Alone as it still available to purchase for £5 or more (these are often second-hand). Or, you can play it online for free.

So, there you have it! Our top 5 Christmas games that you have to get involved in this year. From spinning slots (and hopefully making some extra cash) to taking part in your very own Christmas film, these games are sure to get you in the festive spirit, especially when the British weather’s a far cry from the winter wonderland we might hope for. Plus, you don’t need to be on Santa’s 'nice list' to play them!
