Nope. Had the loooong anticipated new 2600/7800 games been available in the store, I would have! :)

It's pretty much impossible to shop for me ... I hate clutter, so "stuff" is like an anti-gift. I'm kinda picky about things to wear, and in terms of tech, I usually just buy stuff for myself long before anyone is aware it could be a gift. 

 

So I asked for -- and got -- sixty bucks in Nintendo credit so I could finally play Mario Maker on the Wii U. It's downloaded but I've yet to play it, of course. 

 

I didn't buy games for anyone, but I've been talking up the unusual Atari Flashback Portable to anyone who will listen. Very few people in my circle care!

Atari Flashback Portable, Golden Sun and Final Fantasy (DS), and a 'mystery cart' (2600). No label, eventually to be given away in the marketplace.

I got permission to build yet another PC provided it's under $2000.

I also got a couple timely updates of emulators. Does that count?

I also got new material from FTP Asimov.

Nope, none of that would count in the spirit of this poll.

No.* But I did fix up a bunch of spare 2600 stuff I had lying around in my basement for my boss to give to her husband. Nice 4-switch woody I refurbed, 2x joysticks, 2x pair paddles, 1x driving controller, 2x keyboard controllers, and a Trak-Ball I "modded" to make the fire buttons more sensitive (I essentially just stuffed some folded squares of aluminum foil inside the fire button assemblies to create conductive pads--the buttons now have a very light tactile touch and are vastly more responsive), all refurbed and frankensteined together from assorted broken controllers when needed. Hooked her up with about 50 common dupe carts I had sitting around, all with really clean labels (I've always been a freak about label condition). Even threw in one of those big plastic Game Center organizers (it was just taking up space anyway--she did me a favor taking it). And of course a power supply and F-coax adapter.

Her husband said it was the best Christmas present he ever got. :-D Today she keeps talking about how much he loves it. Very gratifying to hear and I'm glad I could make that happen for them. :)



(*Well, sort of. I got myself Donkey Kong for Atari 7800 and Mario Bros.--and Food Fight and Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom--for the XEGS in the week before Christmas, but I didn't open them on Christmas. Usually I'll get myself some games for my wife to give to me for Christmas but didn't this year.)

I don't trust people to get me video games. There's a risk I might have it already unless I ask specifically.

Then they're like, "Ew, no! I'm not spending fifty bucks!"

So, gifts to myself then.

I got myself a ton. :evil: But I'm guessing that's not what the OP meant.

 

From others I got Pac-Man Arcade (x2), Pac-Man 4K, Space Invaders Arcade, and Space Instigators :D :thumbsup:

Yes I did!  A really nice Atari Age member made my Christmas this year when he PM'ed me with a BETA copy of his new game.  I cannot mention him or his game at the moment... but I really enjoy playing it and I know others will too when he's ready to release it.

I didn't and that's a good thing because they would have picked stuff I don't need or want.

I was able to acquire Doom for the Atari Jaguar from a good friend of mine. It was a great Christmas for me because of that. :)
