If you have young children, or know someone that does, and are still on the fence about getting Once Upon a Monster, here are three new dev diaries that might help you change your mind. Plus it already has DLC, which means more puppet fun.
This seems like a pretty easy Christmas gift decision to me, so long as the intended recipient has a Kinect. Or you could buy it for someone without a Kinect, tell their kids how crazy-awesome the game is, and watch as the child endlessly nags their parent for more hardware.
All joking aside, Double Fine put a lot of effort into this game, and I think it's really nice. People who grew up playing videogames are now making family-centric games for their kids. This is a game even Oscar the Grouch likes.
