So, what are your expectations in this area?

(This is not an opportunity to air your feelings on the holidays in general. If you don't partake, you may say so. Any negativity or snarkiness will be deleted at my discretion.)

I put 50/50. Last year, I asked the wife for the 7800 Expansion Module. It might be here in time for the holidays this year. I say this with no ill will to the XM team, I'm perfectly willing to wait as long as it takes.

I may treat myself to something retro / classic gaming related like atari 2600 carts or some cheap Dreamcast games.Money seems really tight this year though :(

I already treated myself to a couple of holiday homebrews a while ago just for that holiday spirit, and might do so again this month. As for actually getting gaming stuff from someone else, I'm not sure.

I've asked my folks and my girlfriend for Sonic Generations (3DS or 360, I don't care). I've also asked for Goldeneye Wii and Mario Kart Wii. I was especially ambitious and asked for a (small) modern television, which, to me, counts as video game stuff.

I bought my niece and nephew a large iTunes credit and Super Mario 3D Land, so hopefully what goes around comes around! :)

Well, I received an early Christmas present this year. Though not on my list, I am very pleased with it! New Super Mario Bros DS :)

I usually get a little something game-related every year. This year I ordered a couple of 5200 carts I wanted from atari2600.com - River Raid (CIB), Galaxian (CIB), Buck Rogers (loose) and Space Dungeon (loose). Nothing super rare or anything, but all games I wanted.

Technically I am getting stuff, but all things I ordered myself. I think that I may be getting some other things from my family, but not sure. Mainly waiting on boulder dash!

Nope! I don't ask for any video game items for Christmas, because people always get confused trying to buy them for me. Board games, books, and new clothes mostly!
