What we want for the holidays

n64-kid.jpg

If you’ve been checking the blog this month, you’ll know we’ve been recapping our favorites of 2009. We’ve already covered TV and Music, but I thought I’d give everyone a chance to see Avatar, The Lovely Bones, etc. and play through Dragon Age, Borderlands, and more before asking them to share their favorite movies and games.

So before getting to that, last week I asked folks to share what they’re hoping to get for the holidays (as Pete and Todd already did at Kotaku). Let us know what you’re hoping is under your tree.

Ryan Salvatore: Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes, and enough free time to play my huge backlog of games.

Sean Palamino: Batman Arkham Asylum (how did I miss this one?), District 9 on Blu Ray, or maybe an HD camcorder — but I hear Santa is being cheap this year.

Natalie Gausden: In dream land: a Puppy. In reality: a new pair of boots!

Ashley Cheng: What I want for the holidays: new comfy pants, a new coach, general manager (check!) and owner for the Washington Redskins

Jennifer Tonon: iTunes and WoW gift cards (seriously.. I spend too much money on these things), some sanity, every edition of Zombies! The board game I can get my hands on, sleep, a new mattress, and Brutal Legend (I’m behind the times.. shut up).

Rob Bartholomew: The next part of the Dark Tower Graphic Novel and a 1971 Mercedes SL with no rust.

Megan Sawyer, Environment Artist: I’d kinda love it if the job fairy would visit my unemployed friends and give them all awesome jobs.

Alistair Hatch: For my fantasy football team not to be rooted to the bottom of the table in my friends league.

Regi Jacob: To move my soon-to-be family of four out of our 1 bedroom apartment and into a house. Preferably before baby#2 is born so I won’t have to make room for him/her in my sock drawer.

Zack Quarles: Kindle, Sennheiser MKH 30 Microphone, and a teleporter.

Shane Liesegang: Another good draft class for the Jaguars, a million dollars, everyone to just calm the frak down and realize that the world isn’t ending.

Michael Lattanzia: Free time for gaming!

Laffy Taylor: A golden grill!

Matt Grandstaff: List has been depleted after opening many of my gifts early…NAUGHTY! Anyhow, I’d like Beats by Dr. Dre studio headphones, new speakers, a dominant center for the Pistons and Wolverines, and a  new defense for UM football and the Lions.
