Christmas Is Coming! What Gifts Should I Ask For?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 10.854% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

So Christmas is coming up, and so is my Annual Greed List, where I make a list of everything that I currently want to find in my stocking.  Which started out as a way for my family to help understand their terminally-nerdy son, and actually has evolved into a interesting tracking of my habits over the years.

(For example, I can look back over past Greed Lists and chart the demise of physical music CDs, see how the roleplaying market crashed and was revived through Kickstarter, see the hobbies I started and got bored by.  It’s great.)

Which leads me to ask: What cool-yet-affordable things should be on my Greed List this year?  Which RPGs are cannot-miss, which videogames are so cool that I cannot live without them, which geeky trinkets are so stellar that I must have them beneath my tree this year?

What has escaped my nerdy eye?  Please!  Tell me, so I can compile The List properly.

    If you don’t have them, wireless headphones have been liberating. I love mine.

    It’s just a skoch too late to get in on the kickstarter (but I wouldn’t be surprised if they let people join in on the backerkit or something), but if you haven’t seen it yet, you should check out Bluebeard’s Bride, a new horror RPG:

    I’ve been having the best time playing Just Cause 3. It’s mostly just mucking about, causing enormous explosions in a crazy big sandbox, with a story that has about as much depth as any Arnold Swartzenegger movie. Where else can you use a grapple onto a helicopter, crash it into a radar dish and wingsuit out of there while shooting a rocket launcher?
